Suggestions for Part time MBA please


Bubbles
Hello,

I wanted help regarding part-time MBA in Chicago.
I am currently working in an animal hospital in Chicago as a manager and preparing for GMAT.
My profile:

I am from India and have done computer engineering .
Worked for 3 years in a reputed IT company.
Then I did MBA (called as PGDM -Post Graduate Diploma in Management) from an average university in 2013.
I got my transcripts evaluated and according to that my degree is equivalent to completion of 2 years in undergraduate degree in management.

I have given IELTS and preparing for GMAT. I am an average student and I don't think I will be able to score high.

Please suggest colleges which accept score around 600-650 for part time MBA and have good ROI.

Ps. I plan to settle in Chicago in long term.

Looking for a response. Thanks.

There are a few good part-time and flexible MBA programs in the Chicago area. Maybe start by looking at these schools:

Depaul
Loyola
Chicago - Liautaud

And Booth has probably the best part-time MBA program in Chicago, but your probably already know that.

In general, these programs recruit early- to mid-level working professionals who do not want to make huge career leaps. The ROI is usually much less than that of full-time MBA programs.

However, your history, in that you got some of your work your work experience before you did your degree, and that it's not a typical undergraduate degree at that, may be problematic for some of these schools. To be competitive at most of these part-time MBA programs, you'll probably need at least 4-5 years of *post-undergrad* work experience, if not more.They may make exceptions, but you'll have to check directly with the business schools.

It's really hard to say, since unlike for full-time MBA programs, for most part-time programs business schools don't usually publish career data; and if they do, the salary increases are much less than for full-timers. That's just the nature of these kinds of programs though.

For instance, data collected in the Businessweek rankings suggest that Loyola part-timers get around a 40 percent salary bump, for instance.

But it will depend on your own personal goals and expectations. If you are interested in changing either career function or industry, a full-time MBA is probably better.
