If you mostly just need the info and degree to move forward in your career, yes. For networking and really getting the full experience, no.

If you are looking at the top online programs such as UNC, IU they do network really heavy. I would say those programs the education is exactly the same to the point where you can attend in person classes as well.

smart

If you get an mba for info, you've way over paid. No business school has some sort of secret info. Probably get all the knowledge from udemity for $5k

Isn’t this true for all education? Read a book it’s the same.

I did my MBA at T2 school part time. Exited to post MBA consulting pay at 200 TC. I was junior staff making 90K. Worth it for me

No...A part time would be better.

Question is around what you are doing it for. I used it to jump from a Big 4 to a MBB and then to private industry. I did my MBA in Europe from IE, paid very little and then got paid back. But I definitely think it helped me, even though I relocated to US and my MBB switch was in US

Lol no. What reputable school has online MBA?

A simple Google search would’ve saved you from posting this ridiculous question.

No it’s not as good. Better value for money? It depends?

Yes, just like a virtual significant other is the same thing as an in person significant other...

No

No and never will be

Nope. Part of the value of the MBA is the network, which you can’t get online.
