Best combination for a busy life


jerome_tri
That might sound like an odd question but which online MBA offers the best following combination:
- Reputation
- Affordable
- Interactive and offering good online face to face work
- and most importantly: fits well with a busy work life. As much as I am interested with an MBA, I don't want to kill my family and professional life balance. So I am looking for a program that won't take more than 10-12 hours of my week.

What I have in mind are either Manchester or Warwick. IE is very compelling but really intense and pricey.
Would you guys suggest anything different?

I think you really nailed the key criteria. Price, rep and interaction. But I guess schools that tick those last two boxes suggest it will be more immersive. I have read that part time programs - even online - are harder than the full time experience, just because one tries to do things in addition to work, family etc.

Hey, what about a program that is spread out over a longer period (than just 2 years)?

I am sorry don't know that much about these English and European M.B.A. programs.

Are you only looking at UK schools? If so, I would add these to the list of possibilities:

Henley
University of Liverpool
Aberdeen

The Warwick program has been around for a long time though - and from what I hear the curriculum is pretty comprehensive. As far as reputation goes I would rank that pretty high.
