Mid-senior professionals, it’s time to pull up your socks! | Executive MBA

Academic

There was a time when market managers were only asked to take care of their clients, keep track of their squad and bring maximum business to their organization. Then came the deadly virus (COVID-19) that bewildered the business industry, and everyone was asked to do everything. American singer Bob Dylan's The Times They Are A-Changin song was taken way too seriously. From handling clients to team members, and managing content to google analytics, a mid-senior level professional was compelled to do everything. 

This unfurled the scope of integrated professional courses wherein mid-level executives trained themselves to become more skill orientated and adapt to rapid changes in the ‘new brave business world’. It also opened multiple doors for them to earn double digital salary tags and enlarge their networks. This brings us closer to discussing professional courses like Executive MBA programs vividly.

According to the 2021 Executive MBA Council (EMBAC) student exit survey, Executive MBA graduates garnered a whopping 14.7 per cent hike in compensation in salary and bonuses after completing the program. There is more to it. The data claimed that another 36 per cent of students received a promotion during the program, and 49 per cent said they were given more significant responsibilities at their workplace during the program.

This discussion takes us to a critical question. 

If this course is so crucial for today's mid-level corporates, why aren't good-ranking universities offering it? Instead, how many offer this course with a credible faculty, alumni pooling and curriculum?
