Online MBA - any review for IUBH?


JW
Hi,
I am currently trying to find suitable online/part-tiime MBA program for me. The program should take less than two years to complete. I live in Switzerland, but the programs here are way to expensive for me.

The German IUBH (https://www.iubh-fernstudium.de/master/masterstudiengaenge/wirtschaft-und-management/master-business-administration/) offers a 60ECTS MBA that is 100% online and can be done in 18-24 months part time.
It does not have an international accreditation, also, I could not find anything helpful about it here or anywhere else.

I've also been looking at Maastricht University's program (https://maastrichtmba.com/euromba-online/) which looks more promising, but takes 24 months to complete.

Has anyone hat any experience with these institutions and/or could give me advice on how to find a suitable program for me?

The real question here is your goals. If you just want MBA knowledge, then look at alternatives with the same content: https://find-mba.com/board/distance-learning/value-alternatives-to-unaccredited-mbas-58288

If you want an MBA-type role with a recruiter who regularly hires MBAs, then you'll need a good one, ideally in the FT Online MBA ranking. You get what you pay for.

Try searching the board. I don't think you'll find many alumni here.
I can't imagine any person for whom IUBH is the right choice.

The EuroMBA is a good programme if you can take advantage of the residential weeks. Otherwise, while not get an excellent education and a global brand like Boston or Illinois? EuroMBA used to lead to alumn status with seven universities, now it is a Maastricht programme.

This forum is a great place to research.

The Illinois / Coursera program is an excellent value.

As you seem to be rather price conscious, you might try filtering the FT Online MBA Ranking by course fee. There are some decent programs there. On the tuition front, Bradford seems to stand out.

Hi there, sorry for replying from a different account, but for some reason, my other account has been disabled and no has replied to my e-mails, yet.

Anyway, thank you for your helpful suggestions.

One important info, I had left out: I am based in Switzeland and definately want to do an MBA in Europe.

Also, I have decided against an online track in favour of a part-time Executive MBA track.

I know, that the ranking is rather important in some situations, although for me the main aspect is, that the program fits my needs/expectations.

I am rather price contious, indeed. Probably because, coming from Germany I don't really understand why I should pay that much for education.

I have looked at several of the higher ranking schools. Of these, only IE's program seemed to be close to what I am looking for.

I have then compared this to the two programs from Maastricht (MaastrichtMBA and MSM) and must say, that I still find those more appealing. For the moment, it looks like I will go for one of those two.
