It's an AMBA accredited program so that is a definite pro. The relative low cost is also a pro.

But I would say that the cons would be the same cons with any distance learning program -- the stigma among employers and a lack of real networking possibilities compared to an on-campus experience (which aren't huge problems if you intend to keep your job while studying).

Why are you getting an MBA? To advance with your existing employer?

Thanks for the reply... pretty much the reason I am pursuing MBA is to support my career shift from technical to management..
