LOS ANGELES, California—March 18, 2008—Executive MBA programs have become an increasingly attractive option for experienced professionals who want to advance their careers without sacrificing the two years demanded by most full-time programs.'s® new email course, Ace the EMBA™, addresses the unique needs of these applicants in this ever more competitive admissions environment.

"EMBA applicants are sometimes the step-children of the MBA admissions world," noted Linda Abraham, founder of "I am pleased that Accepted is providing this innovative, informative course to help EMBA applicants evaluate options, target their efforts, and refine their applications.”

This targeted approach is invaluable for EMBA hopefuls who want to maximize their chance of admission. While traditionally viewed as less competitive, the Executive MBA Council reports that applications to EMBA programs rose by 25 percent between 2005 and 2007. In that same period, the acceptance rate declined from 67 to 63 percent.
