Does Executive MBA have the same value as a fulltime MBA

Opportunities after completing an MBA degree are endless. There are several types of MBA courses, major ones being the fulltime MBA and executive MBA. There has been an argument which has been persistent since the inception of MBA itself, an argument about which is better? Executive MBA or fulltime MBA? Some say two years is needed to learn all about business administration while some say it can be learnt quickly with experience. 

To break it down, a full time MBA is a two years course and is mostly pursued by fresh graduates without any prior experience. An executive MBA on the other hand is a one year MBA course designed for seasoned professionals. The candidate should have a minimum of 2 years work experience while applying for an executive MBA.

Leadership skill requirement as per Global leaders

A lot of research is carried out each year on the requirements of the new global leader and the new set of skills as well as the experiences necessary to prepare people to take on this challenge. Many believe that the most important aspect of effective global leadership is not necessarily acquiring a new set of skills or experiences, but instead a fresh perspective called a global mindset. 

Sadly, many organizations have few candidates for overseas assignments, no information about those in the firm who aspire to such opportunities, no clear understanding of the competencies required for such assignments, and little interest being expressed by younger internal managers in becoming global leaders. This has given rise to many global leadership programs at various universities that offer a one year MBA program specializing in leadership or allied fields of study.
