More Students Get MBAs Online
from the is-it-worth-it? dept
When friends of mine are debating whether to do a part-time or a full-time MBA program, I always suggest they go for the full-time program. The most valuable part of business school isn’t always what you learn or the degree you get – it’s often the people you meet. That’s much more difficult when you’re not there very often. However, not everyone wants to give up 21 months of their working lives to experience business school, and having the degree on your resume certainly can help (and, depending on the school, some of what you learn may help as well…). So, I guess it’s no surprise that online MBA programs are doing quite well, even if none of the top universities will go near them. While many top schools offer executive MBA programs, these still require the students to get together every once in a while.
