Part-time MBA - Please Advice

More Online MBA discussions at FIND MBA Online

Hi,
Only want to do Online MBA (Executive MBA or Full time MBA are ruled out due to personal circumstances). Will be happy to have some face to face lessons/sessions or induction. I am near Heathrow so preferring something in London but your advice is appreciated.
1. My skills - Currently I am Leading Business Intelligence Engineering team in a company (logistics)
- Most of my experience through freelancing in UK as Senior Developer/Consultant(IT). Mostly the clients were IT consulting companies.
2. Goal - Move up the hierarchy . Move back from logistics to Consulting . Also want to try setting up small business ( Mostly education consultancy related ) . Haven't drafted plan for that yet.
3. Age 40
4. Academics not great - Engineering (Lower Second class)
5. Short courses - Completed LSE MBA Essentials, Harvard Business School Online - Business Analytic course, Other IT relevant certifications.
6. Offers - Got Durham offer (Sept 2021)
7. Applications in progress for Sept/Oct 2021
 - Aston application in progress - I think I can easily crack it
 - Imperial waiting for decision (it got rejected in 2018, reapplying post doing MBA Essentials and joining permanent role andmoving up to Lead position )
 - Cass/Bayes Business school - Waiting for decision.
Plan - Imperial is obvious first preference. Confused whether to go for Durham or Cass ( As Cass Global MBA online is new though executive MBA is there for a while now. Don't see Cass in Global Online MBA ranking )
Suggestion - Not sure if I don't make it to Imperial, is it better to apply for Warwick and Alliance Manchester business school, The start date for them are in Jan 2022 now).

I think you should clarify your goals. I don't know enough to day that a Senior Management Apprenticeship or EMBA is not a better choice.
