    1. Part-time MBA programs as mentioned are the MBA programs that are open for any professional with some years of professional experience and can be studied besides the job. The structure can be modular, that is students learn individually and come together every five or six weeks or two months to meet for a week together with professors so-called residential periods of face-to-face sessions. The structure can also be weekly when students have to come on the campus on a weekly or bi-weekly base. This allows to complete the MBA over two or three years and again the target group is all professionals, independent if they have leadership experien... view more

    Hi,
    Both have a different status. Executive MBA is where university or institution reduces the duration of the course by 1 year by taking your experience into consideration and part time MBA will be of 2 years where you can attend evening classes.
    You need to see your feasibility for part time MBA and E-MBA have options from distance learning.
    Please let me know if you wish to know options or have queries.
    Regards
    Ramneet

    Executive MBA:Executive MBA programs are typically designed for working professionals. An executive MBA programme is a lot like a regular MBA programme.

After earning an executive MBA, you could continue to work in your current position. You may be able to accept more responsibility or pursue promotion opportunities.

    The executive MBA (EMBA) is designed for students with years of work experience in executive or leadership roles typically, these students are between 32 and 42-years-old. Part-time MBA programs are often seen as less competitive than full-time programs and can take longer than two or three years to complete. Both are good as per the circumstances, the candidates can take anyone in order to enhance there skills & expertise in the relevant field without the disruption of there work. Honestly speaking, it depends upon the candidate's ability to take on a subject as much as possible from the professors, and excel in the relevant field of work.

    Part-time MBA:Meant for working professionals who wish to complete the course on a part-time basis while still being employed; the motive is - to pursue MBA with a continuous flow of income from their job which would otherwise be not possible if they go for a Full-time MBA. The course structure is basically modular; however, in this scenario, the pace of the program is bit slower and the course duration is generally longer as compared to Full-time or Executive MBA.Executive MBA:Meant for professionals from different working fields with demonstrated leadership experience of few years and who wish to refine their business acumen and managerial ... view more
