Part Time Furtherance

With the current financial climate meaning many companies are cutting back on jobs, the luxury of being able to take time off to study for an advanced degree is a thing of the past. This is why many executives are now choosing to study for EMBA’s. The Executive Masters in Business Administration is rapidly becoming the most appreciated business qualification. It is associated with the sort of executive who has already established their strengths and specialities, perhaps already in possession of an advanced degree in another area, and people with plenty of top level experience.

One of the important things for EMBA’s is that due to its part time nature, it is convenient for the executive to study at a business school that is nearby. Before the ugly head of recession loomed, it probably wouldn’t have mattered as much, but with purse strings tightening across the planet it is getting more and more difficult to get expensive flights paid for. Indeed, more and more executives will find that their employers will be reluctant to even help them with their tuition fees. Many candidates offer to contribute their own funds, or perhaps even their bonuses in order to pursue an EMBA.

London is an area which is perfect for executives to be able to balance study and work, with several top ranking business schools within the city, such as the London Business School, Cass Business School, London School of Economics and Political Science, and the Tanaka Business School. They are the perfect location for those wanting to be in the thick of it.

However, for those who want to enjoy the study experience in some peace and quiet should look a little further afield- there are several business schools dotted around the leafy and beautiful countryside that surrounds the capital- far enough to be detached from the intensity of the city, yet close enough to be easy to reach, such as the Cranfield School of Management just outside of Luton, and also the Ashridge Business School.  Ashridge offers both EMBA and MBA courses, that both pride themselves as being as for from chalkboards as possible. They have an excellent syllabus, and offer modules covering a variety of subjects such as change management.

 

Let's Talk

The easiest way to understand how we can help, and whether you feel that you could work with us, is to begin with a conversation.

We don't believe in a "hard sell" and often find that people get value out of the exploratory discussion - whether or not we go on to work together.

Please Contact Us – we would love to hear from you.
