Hello all,

Hoping to tap into the overall experience and wisdom present on this forum.

I am an engineer (materials if it matters) with a master degree in
engineering and about 7 years of professional experience across 3 different
My career moves so far were lateral, rather than vertical, due to moving
between countries and going back to school to do my masters.

I am now in a point where I am considering an EMBA (or part-time MBA) to
pivot my trajectory towards more management positions, consulting or
One of my options (potentially) is the Ivey EMBA program which I can
accommodate while continue working full-time.

Assuming I can get in, do you think it's worthwhile? Anyone has some
personal experience with the program or similar ones and can share the
employability prospects after?
I assume that the majority of students will be managers looking to continue
working for their companies and not necessarily looking for jobs.

Another option is part-time MBA, but I don't think it will help much in
achieving the networking opportunities I need.

Any advice is very much appreciated.
