UCLA AMP program

More Online MBA discussions at FIND MBA Online

Hello Everyone,

I have been looking at online MBA options which would fit my budget - $25k. I recently found out about the UCLA Accelerated Management Program - 1 year program, costs only $7k, requires 7+ years of work experience. It would be very helpful if I could get some insights regarding the value of this program - I am looking to move into a technical leadership role in my current organization or open to similar roles in other companies.

I am aware of the Gies iMBA program, and also considering applying there.

Thanks.

The MAP is a professional development course rather than an academic degree. They are not comparable. The MAP gives you a good survey of the core MBA curriculum, but without any meaningful assignments or exams you can't get a formative assessment to help you correct and shift. You are essentially consuming a stack of content: you can do that for free on Coursera or Edx. On completing the MAP you can join the "UCLA Anderson Executive Education" group on LinkedIn. That has just 2,000 people and desn't look very valuable. For $9,000 you could get a full AACSB-accredited MBA from the Open University via Amity.
