Global MBA -Manchester and older students


cammy

Hello,

I have been given an offer for Manchester's three year Global MBA.

If I take up this offer I will be 42 at the time of graduation. I am interested to hear from older MBA students as to whether they have found MBA campus recruiters to be interested in the experience of older candidates.

No replies! Perhaps I should open the question out to all older MBA students.

Hi.. doing on line/global mba you ll find no campus recruiters.
You ll just add the diploma to your cv and spend it in the job search

Hello Maupia, I think with the global MBA it is stil possible to meet with recruiters but it depends more on coincidence that your class is timetabled with the arrival of the recruiters. THose doing full-time MBAs are more likely to be on campus when the recruiters are.

However I am based near manchester and coudl take advantage of recruiter events.

I spoke to several people who took online/global mba (even the Manchester one) and they were able to spend the mba way before the end!
So don't rely too much on schools placement but be confident to use the mba anyway... by the way I found 3y very long!!
I prefer IE.. 15 months
