Online MBA in US: Kelley vs. Northeastern/Babson


kr1st0f

Is there anybody here applying for online programs in the US?

I am mainly considering Indiana/Kelley, since I have read so much about it, but after seeing the FT's online ranking, there are a few other programs that are interesting to me... Northeastern and Babson mainly, since being relatively nearby I could take advantage of the residencies at either school. Also, I am quite interested in entrepreneurship and innovation - I understand Babson is quite popular in terms of these areas, and Northeastern even offers concentrations.

Any advice? Or is anybody considering applying for these programs as well?

The Babson program would give you the most face-to-face time, this tends to be important for students who want to develop leadership and other soft skills. However, it is the most costly of all the options. The Northeastern program is interesting, though, especially if you can take advantage of the residency sessions.

If you are in the Boston area, you might also consider the area's ranked part-time options, Boston University and Boston College.
