How much time should we set aside for coursework on the weekdays?

We will try to keep any additional coursework on weekdays to a bare minimum. However, time taken to prepare for classes can vary according to the subject and your expertise on the same. On average you can expect to spend 5-10 hours a week on weekdays.

Exec MBA v/s MBA - What’s the difference?

If you’ve started out your higher education research and are considering whether to pursue an MBA or not, you will come across various program formats to choose from. At Masters’ Union, there are two different MBA formats - the Full-time residential PGP in Technology & Business Management and the Part-time weekend executive PGP in Technology & Business Management Strategic Management and Entrepreneurship.

The salient differences between the two programs involve the student profiles, format of the program and timing. Executive MBA students are typically further along in their career and want to strengthen their knowledge and skills to an executive level while continuing their jobs.

An MBA is designed for graduates with an average of 4 years of work experience and provides a more general overview of business with an option to major in a specific concentration whereas executive MBA tends to be much more targeted and relevant to experienced working professionals. While both of the programs cater to different student profiles, they uphold lofty admission standards and follow rigorous academic curricula.
