Let us go in detail. You know both are the Executive MBA course and difference lies in their delivery strategy where one is full time and for another one, the batches are held on the weekend and sometimes on alternative weekends. You may find some institutions which are holding classes for 4 to 5 days in a row for a month. We in India have all mentioned types of institutions. The participants are supposed to be aware of their needs so that they can join the certain programme of their choice. Just go through the following details and you will come to know for what purpose the distinction has been made in the delivery of the programme.
Full-time Executive MBA Programmes:
These programmes are for the working professionals and executives with work experience of 5 to 10 years. The course duration might be from 12 months to 16 months. Some institutions may offer the course for 2 years duration. The participants need to attend for the whole duration of the course. There will be 2 to 3 weeks of learning at an international campus. These instiutions generally have collaboration with the foreign institutions. Admission for the course is based on Work experience and personal interview. You may be required by some institutions to present GMAT/GRE/CAT score for the admission short listing purpose. The fee ranges from 20 to 35 Lakhs generally. Many IIMs (Indian Institute of Managements) come under this category like IIM Ahmadabad, Calcutta, and Bangalore, etc.
Weekend Executive MBA Programmes:
This programme is somewhat same as the above full-time EMBA course. The main difference is that this course is meant for the senior executives/entrepreneurs/business owners, etc. who have experience at the senior managerial level of 10 to 25 years normally. the participants of the course are in their mid-careers and aspire to be a business leader of the time. They might be running their own organisation, might be CEOs of MNCs and other such entrepreneurs. These entrepreneurs can’t afford to attend the full-time classes as they have other many important responsibilities and duties to perform. The weekend or few days in a row in a month will be right schedule for these business persons. The Institutions like IIT Bombay jointly with Washington University, Indian School of Business (ISB) offer this type courses. The fee generally will be higher than the full-time course and ranges from 25 to 40 Lakhs. Admission criteria are same as the full-time course.

Career and Success Coach | Corporate Facilitator
Wouldn't it be so wonderful if you could lead a life that is not given to you by people or situations around you but the one that you desire from within your heart? I had dreamt of such a life for long and, therefore, took a decision of dropping off my decade-long career in geospatial space and follow my heart. No matter how successful and rewarding my job was, I knew my true calling is connecting and engaging with people. So, I went on to become a certified life coach offering personalised 1-on-1 and group coaching programs to-
* To-be professionals not able to decide which course to take next or which skill to acquire that best suits their interest and capability.
* Working Professionals who took a break in career but now want to re-start
* Working professionals who are discontented with their current position and want to make a move or shift
Starting from identifying my clients' needs to establishing goals, I work toward helping them shift their mindset and think bigger so that they can reach their full potential and grow professionally.

Choosing a right career is very important. A cautious decision taken after 10th class/ 12th class / Graduation and after B.Tech. has a long impact on your life. As education is expensive and requires lot of efforts to be successful, there is a need of a career counsellor/guide.
I guide the students for career options suitable for them on an individual basis after their 10th Or 12th Or Graduation. I also guide them over their fitment for Arts, Commerce and Science Stream.
With realistic approach, I have saved the money of lots of parents and most valuable time of more than 500+ students by showing them the right direction.
