Anyone have thoughts about online MBA programs?

I'm considering part time/online and everyone is advising me against it... They say 'i will miss out'... In reality I think they are saying you will miss out on 2 years of drinking heavily... But I'm a consultant, I've already got that part down.

My thing is that I can't afford to sacrifice two years of income and don't want to move. I don't understand how people make the finances work - would love to hear some thoughts around that. Already have loans from undergrad and am married so wouldn't be wanting or looking to "party" more than I already do with my team when I travel.

You miss out on a lot of the value a full-time MBA provides.

like

If you're looking to stay at your firm, why are you getting it? If you're looking to switch careers, a full-time MBA is a door into all kinds of jobs where companies compete to get you. An online MBA does not have that and is not a strong credential on a resume.

^recruiters are actually staring to ask for just the full time MBA people or a designation on the resume of the students. School recruiting complies

@KPMG1 yeah see I have pleeenty of fun on the weekends already. Might do online for the convenience and price.

There are part time programs where you can work and go to school...brutal, but an online MBA is a waste of time. You get the most value an MBA for network and name...that's what the perception is of those hiring. What you learn is all similar

It's not about "drinking your face off" it's about finding people with similar values and interests. No online

I would laugh if I saw some BS online school on someone's resume

You can bullshit that. You are a consult, right? "Great time. Really enjoyed the classes. Like XXX class. Did you go to Fuqua? "

like

Agree with @mk1

Mainly the networking, right?

What's the 'value'?

F that

What's the best name brand you can get online? Would be the same as on resume as part time right?

And when we say two years of partying, we don't just mean on the weekends.

Yeah but doesn't fuqua or someone similar do an online mba? How could anyone tell that from part time on your resume?

Hi! Interested in your feedback regarding recruiters (headhunter), specifically, them not getting back to you after going thru 3 rounds of interviews. This happened to my husband and crickets after the 3rd interview. First interview was with the recruiter, second with the hiring company HR manager and the third with the hiring managers (I believe there were 3 people on the video call). He’s moved on and found something elsewhere but this just seems so unprofessional.

How do you get over a guy? I’m into this guy but know I’m out of his league… whatever he and I have is great (we’ve become really good friends) and has the potential to be something amazing, but I don’t like his friends or his general crowd. I’d like to think I know the most authentic version of him and that he puts on a front with his friends, but that could be wishful thinking. I think we could be really great, but I also think he could absolutely ruin me.
