Online Executive MBA Program


MYL80
Hello,

I've been searching for an accredited/good quality online Executive MBA program while at the same time be of a reasonable fees,

My options were: IE Business School, Imperial College, EuroMBA and MIP Poleticnico di Milano

However the first two business schools are quite expensive, while the last two are somehow of reasonable cost especially with some financial aid,

I would highly appreciate if I can be advised which one to choose and go for,

Many Thanks

If your only criteria are accreditation and fees then pick the lowest-cost accredited programme. Of your four, the price performance of the EuroMBA is excellent, when you consider that you gain all those different alumni networks. Why are you not looking at all the online MBA programmes ranked by the Financial Times? Did you consider the Illinois iMBA?

It would be good to know more about your goals.

Which particular programs are you looking at? If you're talking about the IE Global EMBA program, that's obviously well-regarded with a #10 ranking in the current FT EMBA ranking. Good salary growth, etc.

Hello again,

Actually they are not the only criteria, I want a quality program that will give a boost to my career and open new job opportunities with international firms. However, all top quality programs are very expensive and I can't afford it!

The reason I didn't consider the Illinois iMBA that it is a regular not executive MBA and I want a program of higher level as I have 13.5+ years of experience,

I am an Industrial Engineer working in the OD field with focus on Corporate Strategy, thus I am looking/targeting an online master program either in Business (EMBA) or Economics. As for Economics, I couldn't find any decent program that is being delivered online, therefore my focus goes for an EMBA in which I can do a specialization in Corporate Strategy and Economics,

Would like to hear your advice, and sure will go through the FT MBA ranking for any programs I didn't take into consideration to further know my options,

Thank you,

Online MBA degrees offer many of the same challenges as traditional MBAs, and a few perks that traditional MBAs can’t offer. With program offerings in a variety of business-related fields, like operations, HR, finance, and marketing, the online MBA gives students the time and flexibility they need to build a career while going to school. As well, often online MBA programs are less expensive than traditional programs, but that doesn’t mean they’re less work.

Thanks a lot!

Why don't you talk with some students or alumni to have a better idea of the programs?

Thank you all for your help/clarifications. Actually, after following Duncan's advice to look at FT ranking and going through other related discussions on this website (which are really good and valuable), I now have a whole new perspective. My list have changed; more precisly programs were added which are: Warwick DL MBA, Durham Online MBA, Illinois iMBA and Bradford Online MBA.

Imperial Global MBA has been removed as apparently it has failed. MIP iFlex MBA removed too as it is not ranked even though it seems exciting! The remaining two (IE Global MBA & EuroMBA) are still within my options, however I am now more inclind to Warwick and Durham,

I am not that much excited about Illinois iMBA as it is not ranked even though it is from a world class university. Exactly the opposite for Bradford; ranked program but the university itself not highly ranked!

Would like to know if you support my thinking or you have any other views?

The Illinois program is too young to rank. Actually it was ranked very highly by accident until the school pointed out (I think to US News) that it did not have the required three graduated classes. I don't think you can doubt the quality of the degree.

Hello Duncan,

I've read alot today about Illinois iMBA, and yes it is a promising program and started to see why you are referring to it in different threads. However, I found that it is not going to be recognized by the Ministry of Higher Education in Jordan (didn't mention before that I am Jordanian!) for the same reason you've mentioned in your ealier reply; the 3 graduated classes! I don't think it is wise to take a program that is not recognized in home country,

The same applies on Bradford as it is not within the top 500 universities in QS, Times or ARWU ranking as required by the Ministry for a University to be recognized.

This leaves me again with 2 options: Warwick & Durham! I am not sure about the value of EuroMBA outside Europe (didn't check if it is recognized here in Jordan;I think the universities involved are all recognized, but not sure about the program),

These are all great choices. Euromba residentials are a big advantage but which alumni network is most valuable for you?

Since the euromba leads to each schools MBA maybe describe it as the MBA of whichever is highest ranked... Probably Maastricht.
