Online MBA with good career support?


yuiulb63

Hey discussion forum members, can anybody recommend an online MBA program that provides post graduation career support? Because of prior obligations, I'm unable to attend a full time MBA program, but I don't want an online program where I just get a degree and that's it. I am in fact willing to pay a premium for a program that offers career advice, networking potential, and links to job leads. Any suggestions?

I think all the FT-ranked distance learning MBAs offer career services. Networking potential is really a function of the network in the places where you are.

Yes, agreed. And in the FT ranking you can search according to "career progress rank," which supposedly lists the programs in terms of alumni level of seniority vs. pre-MBA status. Bradford, Durham, and Warwick come out on top here.

Thanks, chaps. That ranking is really useful. Just one quick other question - Babson, Northeastern, and IE seem to have really good post-MBA salaries, which seems to be comparable to that of many full-time MBA programs. Is this data pretty legitimate, would you say?

Yes, I'm sure it's legit. But keep in mind that salary increases are usually less for online MBA programs as they are for full-time programs.

The increases that you see are more akin to that of EMBA programs, which means that students are usually more experienced when they start the program then those who do full-time MBAs.

Ah, I see, that makes sense. I did some research and it seems like students in Northeastern's program have something like 9 years of work experience on average, which is 4 years more than I have. I assume the others are pretty similar.
