    Thinking about an eMBA after the CPA, but I'm too old/far into my career to do the normal MBAs.

    I did my entire undergrad, and grad school online at SNHU. Was the only way I could do college while Woking full time and raising two kids alone. My degree is the same as any alumni who attended the brick and mortar school.

    Lower case e generally implies “electronic” any executive MBA program I've seen is entirely capitalized. Hope you find the info you're looking for.

    So…is an Executive MBA the same as a regular MBA, just offered with a schedule that accommodates working adults? That's what I'm finding Googling…

    If so, then I'd say most MBAs are executive MBAs, since most MBA students are individuals who are working full-time and can't just take a year or two off of work to go to school full-time. If EMBA is just an MBA that can be taken while working, then I'm getting an EMBA currently, though I'd never seen it labeled as such. I'm taking 1 course at a time (accelerated courses, so 2 per semester), exams are on the weekend, and I work more-than-full-time (as do pretty much all accountants…) at the same time.

    The only other common feature of executive MBAs that I saw was some flexibility in the course work (i. e., instead of having to get it in Accounting and take x Accounting hours, you can get it with no specialization and just take core courses and electives); that's also offered through my school, though not labeled an “EMBA”.

    Yeah I think so Lilla, but then again my experience with MBA programs are they are mostly filled with 40 something managers so I'm not entirely sure how much older/further along than a typical MBA candidate op is.
