Evaluation of Executive Education Programs to Enhance Mid-Career Employees Role-based Performance: Organizational Perspective
This study intends to investigate the organizational perspective on improvement in role-based performance of mid-career professionals because of their Executive MBA education. More specifically the study includes the identification of critical roles, which organizations consider important for the performance evaluation of mid-career professionals, and organizations’ perception of how effectively EMBA graduates perform those roles at workplace. The study collected data through a structured self-administered questionnaire from 140 EMBA professionals of 99 sponsoring organizations in Pakistan. Results revealed that organizations consider the work-related role as the most important aspect of evaluation, followed by team related, career related, innovation related and organization citizenship related roles. Results on the efficacy of EMBA programs against these role-based performance indicators showed that though by and large organizations were satisfied, there existed a gap between each of the required roles.
