Admissions Consulting

M B A Exchange, Ltd. is a BBB Accredited Educational Consultant in Highland Park, IL

Executive MBA

For experienced professionals seeking to accelerate their careers, there is no better asset than an Executive MBA education from a top-tier school. We guide individuals who will be sponsored by their current employer as well as those who will be self-sponsored. The MBA Exchange consulting team has unequalled expertise and experience in helping EMBA applicants succeed.

For many working professionals, an Executive MBA (EMBA) degree is a better option than full-time or part-time. Classes typically meet on alternate weekends, with students also convening on campus for several weeks during the academic year. These individuals tend to be age 35+ and on the fast track at a major corporation or age 45+ and heading their own organization. In either case, the competition for admission is heated.

The MBA Exchange has helped applicants from a wide range of backgrounds gain entry to top-ranked EMBA programs including Wharton, Chicago Booth, Northwestern Kellogg, Columbia, Berkeley Haas and UCLA.
