Rank these US online MBAs!


robert v.

Hey all,

I'm looking into doing an online MBA from a school in the US, and need some help deciding on which ones to apply for. How would you rank these online MBA programs??

ASU - Carey
UNC
Drexel - LeBow
Temple - Fox
Indiana - Kelley

Most likely, I'll just apply to three programs, so I'm thinking Kelley, UNC, and ASU. Other ideas?

Hi Duncan,

I've been working in human resources in the health care industry for several years now. I feel like a could use a bump to get into managerial roles, so I'd like for my MBA program to have a solid basis in management theory. I'm not looking to do a huge career shift, and even plan on staying in the same company after I graduate, so I don't necessarily need robust career services.

Ideally, I'd like some hands-on elements so that I can have practical interaction with my professors and the rest of my class.

All of those are great program. Did you consider any than bled in more face to face learning, like the Manchester MBA in Miami? Why not take a face-to-face part-time MBA at an AACSB-accredited school near you?

I recently had similar choices to make regarding some of the schools on that list and I found the program at Fox to be very interactive. I wouldn't rule that one out. Although UNC sounds like a good option as well

Thanks for recommending this. Can you elaborate a bit? Did you choose to enroll in the program? If so, how do you find it?

These are really two different types of programs: Fox's lectures are delivered in a synchronous format, while UNC's are asynchronous. I think it depends on what you're looking for, as these tend to appeal to different classes of people.

What are the benefits of the synchronous format? It sounds like it's just a lecture delivered online - and one drawback I can see is that you lose some flexibility in that you have to be at the computer at a specific time.

And from what I can see, the Fox program only has one residency week. Would that be enough?

What are the benefits of the synchronous format?

The main benefit is that you are able to interact with faculty and other students in real-time. Think of it as a real classroom, except in virtual space. Since a lot of business is now taking place in similar ways, through webconferencing, Skype, etc., it really makes a lot of sense to know how to interact in this kind of environment.

And from what I can see, the Fox program only has one residency week. Would that be enough?

Something is better than nothing, in this case.
