      What is the difference between an Online MBA and an Executive MBA?

      The main differences between an Online MBA and an Executive MBA lie mainly in their audience, format, requirements and level of flexibility.

      An Online MBA is a distance learning diploma that offers a high degree of flexibility. Courses and educational activities are accessible at any time, empowering participants to manage their schedules in full autonomy. This format is suitable for those who need to balance work, family, and education. The EDHEC Online MBA spans 24 months. An Executive MBA, while also providing flexibility, is often structured with classes during evenings or weekends. The EDHEC Executive MBA is a 16-month part-time programme.

      Participants to both an Executive MBA and an Online MBA are active professionals who ant to level up their career and reinforce their leadership. The EDHEC Executive MBA is tailored for managers boasting at least 7 or 8 years of experience. Meanwhile, the EDHEC Online MBA requires a minimum of 3 years of professional experience for eligibility.

      While both programmes are well-suited for working professionals, the Online MBA allows for greater convenience and flexibility given the programme is designed to accommodate distance learners with busy schedules. The choice between the two depends on your career stage, goals, and preferences for learning format and schedule.

      What is the value of an Online MBA?

      EDHEC offers a comprehensive portfolio of MBA programmes designed for professionals seeking to accelerate their career and transform their leadership.

The AMBA’s accreditation, awarded to 3% of business schools worldwide, attests to the demanding standards and selectivity of our programmes. This commitment to excellence is also reflected in the MBA programme rankings: the Executive MBA is ranked in the Top 30 globally by the Financial Times (2023 ranking) and #1 for Alumni Satisfaction. The Global MBA is ranked 4th worldwide according to ESG’s criterias by the Financial Times (2024 ranking). Each EDHEC MBA differs mainly in its learning modality and offered flexibility, its duration, or its prerequisites, and adapting to the different needs and professional goals of each participant.
