Dear All,

I am looking for a distance learning MBA program to enhance my skills and get me a better position in the job market. I happen to go through the posts and searched on schools like Warwick, Manchester, Royal Holloway etc.. I am 7 yrs exp guy in an IT division of a bank in Singapore. Any thoughts on which DL MBA to go for which would be value for money? Euro*MBA, Manchester and US online programs are expensive.. Hope to get some help on choosing the right school for a DL MBA please..

Do you want a value for money MBA, or an inexpensive one? The outcomes are different from different MBAs. A higher quality programme will produce a much larger lifetime increase in earnings while a lower quality one might not accelerate your earnings at all. Programmes like Manchester and the Euro*MBA are actually very inexpensive compared to full-time MBAs at the same schools.

You pay for what you get. An inexpensive program might be a good idea in the short run, but if you're looking for more extensive value - like career placement support services, robust alumni networks, etc., you're not going to find that in an inexpensive program.

I think that in any case, you should look for a program that mixes in-class sessions in with the online structure. The depth of the learning experience and networking you'll get from in-person interactions is much better than something purely online.
