The Executive MBA Program is designed for mid-to-senior level managers, executives, and entrepreneurs. Enrolled students typically have more than 10 years of work experience including prior management/leadership responsibility. The class schedule is formatted to allow students to continue working while they pursue their studies--in fact, the expectation is that they will remain employed in a position that allows them to apply what they are learning while they complete the program. Students also bring their current and prior experience into the classroom to enrich the learning experience of their fellow students.
Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100.
After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department.
Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.
Most University of Washington Executive MBA students qualify to borrow $20,500 per year through the Federal Stafford Direct Loan Programs ($8500/subsizided, $12,000/unsubsidized). To apply, you must be a U. S. citizen or permanent U.S. resident, must not be in default on a prior federal student loan, and must have registered for the draft if required by law to do so. Otherwise, this program is not based on need, income, or credit. Depending on credit worthiness, EMBA students may also qualify to borrow up to the full amount of the program fee through the private MBA Tuition Loan Program. Foreign residents may apply for this loan with a U.S. citizen co-signer.
