Aston (in class) MBA vs Bradford (distance learning)


neva10
As I don't think Bradford is offering an in class MBA anymore I am thinking about either their online option or an in class MBA most likely at Aston.

Bradford seems to have the better reputation but I am uncertain about the practicalities of an Online MBA. I would much rather do a classroom program.

Anybody have any insight?

If an online MBA feels impractical then a classroom programme will be better. What is it about your goals that makes you focus on these two schools rather than better programmes?

Thanks for your response. I was focusing on these two schools due to the affordability aspect and also the fact that they are both triple accredited.

Do you have any suggestion for an classroom program that is a good value but also has a high accreditation standard?

Thank you for any further guidance.

These are low cost schools because they are low value. The highest value investment is the one that will give you the best return. Consider the net present value of the options. It's a false economy to not get into the best school for your career goals.

How do you consider the affordability aspect working with this analysis? I would love to go to Cambridge but I simply do not have the resources.

If you can get admitted to Cambridge then you have access to the resources, since you can access a loan. It would be the best investment most people ever make.

Do everything you possibly can (with the exception of stealing, etc.) to get in.

A degree from a school like Cambridge will pay off in the long term. Because of this, schools are often very eager to provide promising applicants with loans, grants, etc. For non-local students, organizations like Prodigy Finance also can help with loans to cover the MBA studies.

They do this because they know with the salary potential of a school like Cambridge, you will be able to pay it back in the end!
