A recent Executive MBA Council survey showed that Executive MBAs are increasingly paying off financially as well as career wise. The survey found increased compensation, new responsibilities and substantial promotions for graduates.

The Council found in its 2017 EMBAC Student Exit Survey that graduates’ compensation increased by 14.2 per cent after programme completion.
