    Post Graduation

Executive Masters of Business Administration in Human Resource Management (EMBA HRM) is a postgraduate course in formal systems devised to manage people in an organisation/ company. An integral factor for being eligible for this course is that the candidate must have a work experience in addition to being a graduate.

EMBA HRM is usually a 1 ½ yearsto 2 ½ years program and is often confused with a regular MBA in HRM. Admission to the program is based on the candidate’s working experience, entrance exam score (CAT/XAT/MAT/CMAT/NMAT/University Exam) and graduation marks, in addition to a group discussion/personal interview.

The average tuition fee for the entire course ranges between 1.80 Lakhs INR to 3.80 Lakhs INR.

Executive MBA in HRM is a course for working professionals and is mostly pursued by candidates who wish to expand their horizon in terms of career and job responsibilities. After course completion, a candidate can expect not just a salary hike but an expansion of job responsibilities too. It helps transition from executive roles to leadership roles. The average salary for Executive MBA graduates in HRM ranges between 3.6 Lakh INR to 7 Lakh INR per annum.


The duration of this course depends on college to college. The duration largely ranges from 1 ½ years at the least and 2 ½ years at a maximum. The course is divided into semesters.  

The classes for the course are conducted twice a week in most of the colleges.  

What is the course about?

It is often said that good employees and their efforts take a company higher and higher. If the employees are an important part of a company, then who is in-charge of the management of employees? There is a HR department which caters to the needs of the employees. EMBA HRM is a course designed for working employees of an organization to impart knowledge and skills required to manage the people within the organization. 


The difference between the two is minimal. The course structure and topics taught are very similar to each other. A regular MBA in HRM is for students within a certain age limit. Their course structure requires the students to attend seminars and project presentations. The time duration for this course is 2 years.

EMBA HRM is for students who are already working. In other words, it is a distant education course in HRM. Students of any age limit can pursue this course, provided they meet the eligibility criteria. In here too, students have to submit a research paper/dissertation.
