Online MBA


Mehiemeed

Hello All,
I am applying for an Online MBA due to the following reasons:
1. Need to learn more ... better to get MBA than small courses
2. Looks good on CV
My budget of course is not much,i have the following options:
1. MMU... 3 accreditation and good cost
2. NTU ... better ranking
3. LEICESTER.. high QS ranking but not AACSB accredited
4. Illinois iMBA...applied but not approved

Personally i would go with 1due to cost and accreditation but i am worried that wHat i learn there wont be good compared to what NTU or Illinois can offer.
As well as i have doubt that MMU MBA is good on CV.
Can you please share your experience and advise?
Thanks
Mohamed

I don't think that MMU or NTU have much better standing in the UK than, for example, the Open University. Illinois is very much better: that has been repeated ranked in the top 50 universities worldwide, and in the top 100 business schools worldwide.

Hello StuartBB,
thank you for the note.
sorry i didn’t understand the comparison with Open U. Are you saying MMU MBA is not that good?

The MMU MBA is a solid, triple-crown, MBA. It gives you the same content as most UK MBAs, with half the learning from the core and half from elective choice and a dissertation. However, you mention wanting something that looks good on your CV. As a former polytechnic, and an accessible, 1992 university focused on teaching rather than research, it's not going to look better than any other well-accredited MBA. There's less of a 'wow factor' with MMU than with most British universities. At the undergraduate level, it's rather average, a little worse than Leicester: https://www.thecompleteuniversityguide.co.uk/league-tables/rankings/business-and-management-studies 

PS I'm saying that Illinois is very much better. If budget is a major limit, the OU MBA is also a triple-crown, UK MBA and is available less expensively through Amity.

What are your goals? (in terms of where you are working / where you would like to work, industry, etc.?) This is really a wide range of schools, each with their own pros and cons. 

Leicester does have AMBA accreditation, which is generally comparable to AACSB.
