Unfortunately, we do not facilitate credit transfers due to the programme's structure, which heavily incorporates group assignments across courses. Executive MBA students begin their studies at the same time, progress through the curriculum together, and fulfil graduation requirements as a cohesive group. This approach fosters the development of a robust network of peers and lifelong friendships.

Executive MBA students typically invest an average of 15-20 hours per week outside of classroom sessions. This time includes individual study hours, assignment work, and collaboration with study group members for group projects. While this figure serves as an average, it may vary depending on the student and the course. Additionally, as you progress through the programme, you'll develop strategies to streamline teamwork, potentially reducing preparation time for group assignments. A general guideline is to allocate three hours of study outside of class for every hour spent in class.

If an organisation is offering sponsorship, it indicates their belief in your potential as an employee. Consider broadening the conversation beyond just time and financial support. Can you negotiate opportunities for challenging projects where you can apply your newfound EMBA knowledge? Are there discussions about your potential growth within the company post-EMBA? Is the organisation receptive to your innovative ideas? If you're certain you cannot commit to your company's requirements for sponsorship, you might explore self-funding. However, it's advisable to still discuss your intentions with your employer to gauge their support. Having your company's backing can significantly enrich your EMBA experience. That being said, we do have successful participants who pursue the programme without company sponsorship.

At RSM, we view the EMBA as a transformative journey. We strive to challenge our students' assumptions, prompting them to reflect on their approaches and consider new perspectives. Through our Personal Leadership Development programme, we assist students in leveraging their strengths and addressing their weaknesses. Employing innovative teaching methods such as in-class exercises, simulations, group work, discussions, case studies, peer reviews, and mentoring, we foster deeper self-awareness and empower students to apply their knowledge practically.

EMBA candidates engage in real-world scenarios, receive feedback on their performance, reassess their actions, and focus on areas for improvement. This process emphasises reflection, exploration, and implementation. We frequently hear from our participants that they begin to encounter more new projects, become involved in strategic initiatives, assume leadership roles, or expand their leadership responsibilities. For some, this translates into career advancement and transition.
