The University of Nevada's Reno College of Business recently announced that it will offer students an online executive masters in business administration (EMBA) degree program during the fall 2011 semester, the Reno Gazette-Journal reports. The program will target working adults who already have a bachelors degree and want to further develop their skills in the field

Individuals who have already completed their MBA may want to consider the benefits of earning an EMBA.

According to the 2009 Global Management Education Graduate Survey, those who were earning an EMBA degree expressed a higher satisfaction in their courses than individuals in other programs, such as MBA classes. These students said their program was excellent in terms of faculty, structure, curriculum and fellow students.

Additionally, at the time of the survey, individuals who were enrolled in EMBA programs received an average of 2.3 job offers. This was higher than those in both full-time and part-time MBA courses, the source shows.

In 2009, people with executive MBA degrees also occupied more jobs in the fields of technology, healthcare and manufacturing than individuals with any other business degree, according to the survey.
