MBA status of part-time/online/blended programs


PhDMBA
Hello,

I'm wondering if we can mention in our MBA education as MBA from XX school without any other attributes (e. g. Part-time, online/distance or blended) if it's not the full-time program? How would this be seen in the diploma/transcript itself, would it mention those modes?

One might argue that it is rather unfair for the full-time folks if everything is the same, but they (full-timers) also get many benefits from the full-time program itself albeit more expensive fees.

I understand that Executive MBA would be an exception here.

Any manager who reviews your resume will be able to tell you did it online or part-time, whether or not you state it in your resume. However, it is harder to tell if your online program was done in a local school (e.g. say you work in NY and do an online MBA from a NY-based school). And that's why I guess many "local" online MBA programs are still thriving despite the plethora of top schools offering affordable MBAs (e.g. Boston U or UIUC).

To directly answer your question, the general rule is you can leave out the delivery method unless they specifically ask you.

Local programs will be more effective at helping to develop local networks.

Not always: many second and third-tier schools don't have very active networks and the big schools can be very well organised. For example, Chicago Booth and UCLA have a more active UK MBA alumni network than most second-tier UK schools.

Booth doesn't surprise me given its presence in London but that's surprising about UCLA!
