I'm targeting an online MBA program with data analytics. I've been browsing UK B-schools for long weeks and I've gone through tons of valuable of comments - special tribute to Duncan! I finally came out with 2 entries list: MBA with data analytics from NTU and MBA at Durham with technology pathway. I've found both of them particularly attractive in some respects and showing weaknesses in some other what makes my decision quite hard:
- NTU with data analytics: (pros) the curriculum is unique and big data modules are carefully designed to meet the expectations of IT professional candidates. Tuition fees are very affordable and besting most of the competitors. (cons) It's minimum 36 months duration and unranked by FT.
- Part-time MBA at Durham with technology pathway: (pros) it's an established B-school featuring high FT ranking with large connections with corporates. The online program has been recently revamped to make it as short as 2 years to graduate. (cons) data analytics is just an elective module mainly focused on management aspects rather than coding technical skills. Tuition is equally affordable - for me at least.
about me: am an IT engineer with over 10 years of experience. I'm afraid It's too long - at the risk of boring you - but I want to make it a good starting point for a thourough analysis. Waiting for your valuable input guys.
