Education leader WorldWideLearn.com, the world's premiere directory of education, has launched an Executive Education Section to meet the needs of students seeking detailed information about executive degrees, programs and classes
(http://www.worldwidelearn.com/executive-education/info/info_exec_ed.html). The Executive MBA is more popular than ever, so much so that Business Week now ranks programs offering the degree. Today business professionals with six to ten years of real world experience under their belts -- from IT professionals to marketing executives to lawyers -- are taking executive education courses to enhance their existing career and salary potential or head in new directions.
Executive education lets busy professionals take advanced classes or pursue specialized degrees at an accelerated pace, at night or on weekends, to better fit into busy work schedules. Because the market for executive education is global, online executive education and MBA programs -- both degree-granting and non-degree -- are gaining popularity.
"Wherever advanced skills in leadership, international business or Internet marketing are needed, executive education keeps working professionals in step with the fast-paced changes of our twenty-first century economy," says Wendy Croix, Ph.D., an educator who has advised hundreds of students.
The Executive MBA has come of age, and salaries of MBA degree holders have seen a 27 percent rise, WorldWideLearn.com reports. With price tags as high as $200,000 for the top MBA programs, many students who seek executive education are doing it on the company dime. Though the number of company-funded students is on the increase, four in ten students taking executive education classes are doing so in order to change their job or job direction, employment expert Tom Anderson points out (http://www.worldwidelearn.com/executive-education/info/info_statistics.html).
