University of Iowa (Tippie) MBA for 15K!


Duncan
I've looked at CIMBA http://www.cimba.it/ a few times but never bothered to fill out the huge download form. Their AACSB MBA is 15,000 euro part time or $ 26,275 full time. What amazing value - around one third of the price in the USA, for a top-40 MBA (http://tippie.uiowa.edu/news/story.cfm?ID=2555).

What is this program exactly? A Tippie affiliate in Italy, or what?

Hi all! I try to resume this discussion instead of opening a new thread. I live in Italy and I'm interested in taking an MBA. I'm an engineer with 4 years of experience in a big consulting firm. The options that I have are the International Part time MBA at MIP and the Part time MBA at CIMBA. What would be the best option between these two?

If you want to work in Western/Central Europe, then MIP is a better-known brand. Outside, I'd say that Iowa is a stronger brand.

Thank you Duncan for your reply. I am also looking at online programs as a valuable alternative. From this forum I read that the more suggested are the euro*mba and Warwick. I've also looked at the IE international MBA by distance learning with "blended squared" option, it seems very interesting and prestigious. Basically I am looking for an International Part time MBA (not EMBA, I am 29 and I want to study with people of my age) from a medium/high institution that is well recognized globally. Of course, since I live and work in Italy, I could travel no more than once every month to undertake classes. Do you know any other MBAs that meet my criteria? Eventually could you you link me to a similar discussion? Thank you

Depending on which industry you are looking at, there are very few European MBAs which are recognised *globally*. Even IE is very Hispanophone. Euro*MBA is very European. CIMBA seems like a very strong choice.

I work in the Telecommunications Industry. The IE course is called "global MBA" and it is structured in a way that could fit my needs, plus it is offered from a very prestigious institution, even though I don't see myself working in Spain due to their economical condition. But by combining face to face calsses every six weeks and online training I think it's a step above euro*mba and Warwick. The CIMBA course is indeed a great value MBA for the degree they give you. MIP is a strong option for Italy. Tough decision. I guess I will make a decision based on the GMAT score I will take and possibilities to gain a scholarship.

Of course there's the Columbia-London programme; the Brown-IE programme; the NYU-Trium programme; and several others outside the top 100.

Also look at MIT-Lisbon and Yale's MAM partner programmes. Looking at Canada, the McGill-Insead-Lancaster masters is excellent; Toronto and HSG have a joint programme. And there's always Hult.

Thanks. I will look closer to some of those options.

Would you recommend the WU Carlson EMBA?
I am seriously considering starting the next intake.
I have studied different options and I see it as the best option for me.
- It is a dual degree. WU has an okay reputation. Carlson is strong. But it is a good fit for me. I am in Luxembourg (French & German speaking country) and mostly working for US companies. So those 2 faculties both resonnate well where I'm based and for what I search.
- The tuition is reasonnable at 42K. 40K was my maximum early on.
- It is flexible with only 12 week-ends at WU + 3 international trips of 1-2 weeks. Also the program is on 14 months. So it will be intense but accomodable from a family standpoint.
- The courses seem robust with teacher with good accademic background and from reputable universities.

The other options I'm considering: Katz Prag (lower reputation - no dual degree), IE (more expensive and really spanish speaking orientation)

All of those programmes are fine in terms of the hard skills and academic leadership. The question is: what sort of cohort will help you develop your soft skills, and which schools have the best networks for you. And there's no generic answer to either of those.
