MMU Online MBA Experience


Hi All,
I am a civil engineer with 7 years of experience working in infrastructure industry and looking to boost my career.

It is highly unlikely that I will be shifting to consulting career in any of the big four companies, although it is my wish.

I was checking MMU online programme and it has a great value for money considering that the uni is triple accredited. So I thought to do MBA with MMU and may be later on ( if my career goes well and when I get 15 years of experience or so) I can go for executive MBA or DBA

So do you guys recommend this programme, any experience that you can share and also would like to hear your thoughts about after graduation career prospect

I don't know anyone who has taken that degree, but educationally I don't think that MMU will have a mad offer. It's a good school, even if it's more of a teaching university (like the former polytechnics). 
I don't think it jumps out or employers any more than the Open University.  Why not take a degree from a better university through EdX or Coursera?

Most of the big consulting firms recruit directly from great business schools, but from their full-time MBAs. It's rather a small list of schools that funnel in the majority of new associates - think LBS, Insead, Wharton, Columbia. These kinds of programs are well designed to help graduates make large career jumps (to a new country or to a new industry, or both.) 

On the other hand, online MBA programs are more appropriate for students who want to make smaller career transitions (for instance getting a management position in the firm where they are working, or doing lateral shifts into new companies, etc.)

It really depends on what kind of career 'jump' you intend to make. You might want to look at the FT Online MBA Ranking, which will give you a sense of average salaries and salary increases. The program you are looking at will probably not give you the same level of career impact, but at least you can get a sense of the best programs.
