I am shopping around for an online MBA program and am feeling overwhelmed by the number of schools out there. What are the key questions I should ask these schools to determine which ones are the best?
Top Online MBA Programs are (not in order):
1. Tepper School of Business, Carnegie Mellon University
2. Olin Graduate School of Business, Babson College
3. iMBA, Penn State University
4. Fuqua School of Business, Duke University
5. Syracuse University Whitman School of Management
We interviewed all these schools about their programs and graduates from their programs. Listen for free: http://www.mbapodcaster.com/MBA_MoreInfo/TopOnlineMBAPrograms.asp?iEpisode=68 and
You really want an AACSB accredited school, this is the top accrediation for business schools and non-AACSB accredited schools are not taken seriously by employers. Schools with good MBA programs are the best ones to turn to for good online MBA programs (when they offer it). Before you enroll be sure to talk to current students, ask them what they like and don’t like about the program. Talk to career servcies, ask them how they help online MBA students. Make sure you’re getting proper support at the schools. Listen to the podcasts linked above for a full report of what to look for.
