If you’re thinking about building your own business, you’re not alone. Entrepreneurship is a goal for many people pursuing an Executive MBA. In fact, about 30 percent of EMBA students aspire to become entrepreneurs or self-employed after they graduate. This is hardly surprising given that entrepreneurs on average enjoy higher incomes, a better work-life balance, and more career satisfaction than those in traditional careers.

While the benefits of entrepreneurship are clear, the odds of success improve with a strong foundation of business knowledge. An EMBA can provide that knowledge andgive your entrepreneurial ambitions a head start. Here are a few other ways entrepreneurs get value out of an EMBA.

Considering Overseas EMBA Programs? Tips for Long-Distance Commuting

Posted by Graduate Management Admission Council on Jan 8, 2020 7:00:00 AM

Business schools are becoming increasingly international. Among US programs, for example, our research shows that 37 percent of applicants are international, while among European business schools the rate is even higher at 79 percent. Overall, 58 percent of applicants say they plan to apply to schools abroad. For students, commutes that cross borders—and sometimes oceans—to get to class are not uncommon.
