While both the MBA and the Executive MBA cover similar material, and both award the same MBA degree, there are some fundamental differences.

The Executive MBA is designed for managers and executives who already have substantial professional experience behind them. They want to remain in full-time employment to continue their careers whilst studying for their degree.

Full-time MBA students take part in a number of practical exercises, such as work shadowing and placements, making it more suitable for those at an earlier stage in their career.
