The Return on Investment of an Executive MBA

Deciding to pursue your Executive MBA should not be taken lightly. In addition to the financial undertaking, we understand that your time on campus and time spent on homework is time taken away from your family, friends and professional duties. Many prospective students ask about the direct return on investment for a program such as the Fisher Executive MBA. A 2018 study by The Executive MBA Council, a non-profit association of universities and colleges (including Ohio State), showed EMBA graduates saw an increase in their skills such as critical thinking, leadership, and decision-making, which resulted in an increase in compensation and responsibilities. 

In addition, a 2016 study by the Graduate Management Admission Council found that alumni of Executive MBA programs are the most likely of all graduate business school graduates to recommend their experience to others. Their analysis showed that it took graduates an average of 2.5 years to recoup the investment, a year quicker than traditional two-year programs.
