Part time / DL MBA_Manchester vs Warwick


BigD

There is a lot of ill-informed comparative ratings on TSR. Postings often list ten universities and ask for ranking order. A recent thread asked for a ranking by importance to future career (!) of the stated electives from a list of eight LoL.

I think Warwick defines mode of delivery on the transcript and not the certificate. Manchester calls theirs a Global MBA to distinguish from the FT course.

Imperial states the delivery mode I recently read somewhere.

TBD

I've read this as well.

I think it's all a moot point though - are people really thinking they can fool their future employers by having a vague-looking diploma? Employers will figure it out, one way or another - and will ask questions about this kind of thing.

Clearly it is not possible to pass-off a Distance learning or even part-time MBA as a full-time one, but there is more subtlety with the presentation and perception of part-time degrees.

Attendance can vary considerably and there is the voluntary attendance element to factor-in.

The distinction between "executive" and "part-time" is not so clear especially when some of the universities themselves are quite coy about it (same taught material as PT or FT, cohort "should" be a different profile)
