California Lutheran University MBA


Hi!



I got 8 years work experience in the media industry in Austria and got a scholarship for the Executive MBA in Europe program by California Lutheran University - so it would cost about 12 Tsd Euros for me. But I am not sure if I should take it.



On the Pro side is, that I could do it beside work and must not take a year off. Furthermore the price is ok and affordable. But I am not sure if the Degree is worth it and how it will be regarded.



I was not a business major, so my target is to have sound knowledge of all important management topic to step a step further in my career.



What do you think?



Thanks for your help!



Matt

The Diplom Betriebswirt/in at the WU in Vienna costs the same and gives you a much more useful credential in Austria, the flexibility to specialise in a major field, and the most powerful alumni network in central Europe. I struggle to see the value of the CLU program. From the website, it seems only two of the staff are scholars at CLU.

Thank you for your answer! The program should be only taught by faculty from CLU. 

But how do you think is CLU rated general? Would this degree have any impact for anything? Or is the degree worthless?


I am thinking about CEU as alternative if I got a scholarship. I think WU is interesting for either Professional Master Unternehmensführung or MBA, but too expensive for me.


The problem with Diplom Betriebswirt is that its for people with not so much experience, who haven’t studied. I got BA and MA with strong grades and 8-year strong working experience in creative communication field.

Thanks! Matt

CLU is not well known. I recommend you focus on only schools with AACSB accredition. 

The CEU is very good, but the WU is worth the extra investment for most people. The Diplom is for students with an average of 11 years of experience bit, as you say, they mostly won't have an academic degree already. However, the curriculum is very similar to an MSc in management. Diplom Kaufmann/frau and Diplom Betriebswirt/in are commonly translated as MSc in management.
