Looking for generalist Online MBA to increase Employability and find a more senior job


Hi all,

I am looking for an Online MBA but there are so many options that I feel overwhelmed and looking for some guidance.
At this stage, based on my research and budget, my shortlist includes Bradford and Durham, although I am a bit worried regarding the placement opportunities. In case it is worth it, I would strecht it and go for Warwick instead.

Apart from this, I am fully open for ideas and suggestions, based on the background below.

Thanks all in advance,
Roberto

Background: I have been working at Amazon for 11,5 years and for the last 8 years have been covering a middle management in customer service. My role has been recently made redundant due to reorganization and I am currently unemployed. While I am looking for a new job, I thought to invest some time and money in upskilling myself. Therefore I was thinking of a part-time Online MBA, which I could easily conciliate with flexibility needed for travels, new job (in case I find it) etc. I have a degree in Music so the Online MBA would serve to get a formal education in business and to increase my confidence level. Overall I am passionate about leadership and I am looking to expand my business understanding so to grow into more senior roles while maintaining some flexibility and be able to explore different business fields (I have many interests and get bored after a while). Ideally I am looking for roles that mostly allow distant/virtual work while residing in The Netherlands. Overall I deem flexibility and work-life balance more important than compensation.

Hi Roberto. I'd say that given your experience at Amazon and your focus on leadership and flexibility, Warwick is indeed the best possible choice for you. If you're looking for the choice that will allow for the best possibilities for working remotely and having the flexibility you need, Warwick will open the most doors.

Bradford and Durham are also very solid choices, as would be IE, Imperial University and University of London. These are still all excellent choices, so it's a matter of whether you want to stretch the budget in order to ensure a slightly better outcome, or whether you're happy with good enough.
