There are several reasons why experienced professionals pursue executive MBA programs, it could be to facilitate career switch, change of industry, career advancement or personal development. Although you will learn about teamwork, leadership and practical skills such as accounting and finance, but overall MBA will help you polish your existing skills, build your network, and expose you to new industries. Before applying to business schools, one should critically evaluate what MBA will do for them.
