Which eEMBA is best for an Indv with 14+ years of Exp and looking to accelerate career growth


eMBAA

Evening All,

I have read multiple threads on executive MBA but sadly still require some direction or thoughts on which eMBA could be best suited for an overall career advancement/progression. I have recently had conversations with Henley and Warwick business schools but wanted to check if I need to expand my search to the likes of Oxford, Cambridge, LBS or imperial.

Thoughts for picking up an eMBA
1. A network that one can learn with
2. Accelerate career advancements and remunerations

I currently work with an organisation within the IT department where I lead teams for project delivery. I looked at Economist and FT listing for UK specific colleges and the below list made sense, anyone can help with any Pros below, I also have a thought of not going overboard with investing in studying

University of Warwick - Warwick Business School Warwick Executive MBA
University of Oxford - Saïd Business School
Henley Business School, Executive MBA - Global
Imperial College Business School
LBS
University of Cambridge: Judge

Thank You,
Enthusiastic eMBA

These schools are all in England. If you are also in England, and don't want to invest too much, then look at the senior leader apprenticeship programmes with MBA pathways, such as Henley and Cranfield.

It would help if you can think about some clearer career goals rather than just 'career advancement'. Do you want to continue working in an IT function? There aren't many MBAs in IT functions other than CIOs/CTOs. What kind of roles do you want to do? 

Perhaps explore Product Management - this is a growing area and a popular choice for post-MBAs, combining business and technology.

@Duncan - Yes I live in England, Never heard about apprenticeship programmes, would look at but more inclined towards eMBA programmes, as I think will help in growing into a leadership role. 
What would be your thoughts on the eMBA ?

SLAs lead to MBAs. The government pays for the qualification up to the pg diploma. If budget is tight, they pay £14k to %19k of your costs. You only pay for the top up. So its still a path to an MBA.

Thank You @Duncan for the message, What I should have clarified earlier (apologies for not) is that I am looking to invest in executive MBA which will kind of open up doors in career advancements or even a reset and start something new like Product management or engineering team or Head of IT (something) in Fintech industry (Where my experience lies). Now I am okay to invest anywhere upto 50k but beyond that is something which I am not comfortable with, with that in mind I thought it could be below universities (collated after your MBA research post) are 
1. Warwick
2. Henley
3. Imperial

I don't if these are best which is why I wanted to take expert opinions from this board to ensure I am not missing out anything before planning my next graduation.

More specific goals would help you compare these programmes more meaningfully. Henley stands out because the SLA pathway allows you to obtain one of your target MBAs for a fraction of the investment. However, the goals you mention seem to fit Imperial rather well, don't they?
