Online/ distance MBA in Media or Music Management?


amacrae
Hi,
My name is Ariel and I am graduating from the University of Massachusetts with my BA in Entertainment Marketing and PR and I'm looking for potential MBA programs to apply to. I already have a lot of work experience and what I'm really hoping to do is find a good online program that would allow me to focus on Media Management, or otherwise related to the Music/Entertainment industries.

I know since I am only just graduating it is early for me but I would like to find an online program that will allow me to take some of the prereq or core courses before being formally admitted. This will keep me in the habit of doing school work while allowing me to get the postgraduate work experience required for most MBAs.

I currently have a position for a company in the music industry that requires me to travel frequently so online is really the only option for me.

I haven't been able to find an MBA program that is online and focused on media, so information on good online programs with a focus in Marketing/Advertising/PR would also be of interest to me.

Any information you can offer would be extremely appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
Ariel

Hi,

Here's a few things that might be of use.

1. An article on the pros and cons of distance learning MBAs from the FT, which also includes a link to their distance-learning rankings for 2007: http://www.ft.com/cms/s/2/d5167f4e-d313-11db-829f-000b5df10621,dwp_uuid=70d09d1c-b811-11da-bfc5-0000779e2340.html

2. Another FT article: http://www.ft.com/cms/s/2/fea0a502-d312-11db-829f-000b5df10621,dwp_uuid=70d09d1c-b811-11da-bfc5-0000779e2340.html

3. This from the Economist (although I found it here on find-mba.com): http://www.find-mba.com/article/219/the-economist-ranks-distance-learning-mbas
