EMBA STUDENTS PUT OWN MONEY ON LINE TO CHANGE CAREERS
“A recent survey by the Executive MBA Council, a non-profit organization of business schools from more than 30 countries, including Canada, found this year more than 45 per cent of students paid their own tuition, up from 40 per cent in 2014, without reimbursement from employers. ‘The demand is there even though more students are self-funding themselves,’ says Michael Desiderio, executive director of the California-based council. ‘It speaks to the value of the degree.’ "
CHANGE ON THE HORIZON FOR EXECUTIVE EDUCATION
“According to a 2017 survey of 1,665 early to midcareer professionals, 60 percent say they are very likely or extremely likely to pursue a master’s degree in management.
