Welcome your views on who provides a good part time MBA. I want to take it over 5 or so years so flexibility is important.

What's the view on OU?

Best bit about an MBA is the people you meet and the relationships you form- do it full time! Its only a year, you'll never regret it and its an investment in your future.

OU? Pretty good, solid, bit of a 'civil servant' MBA- if you are a high flier you usually go to a high flier's uni

Joe to Jon (#1)

unless you totally want to change the field of work Part time is a very good option. In "real world" experience matter much more than degrees and having the option of part time gives you the best of both worlds.

Beth is probably right that u will miss some oppurtunity of networking but i doubt the value of such networks compared to the other gains of having 1 more year of professional experience and the same MBA degree (done PT).

good Luck

Joe

I'm late 30s, 2 kids, busy life. Plenty of networking already. I want to do it for personal interest and development, I think I'm over the hill as far as top b schools and full time study go. I like earning a wage :-)

Cheers

LAB to Jon (#4)

Lots of Exectuive Style MBAs around - depends on your location. Kingston upon Thames Business School does a good one (AMBA accredited - very important). Most are over 2 years ... 5 years is not part-time but no-time. Networking is still great (views from other industries rather than job-wise - interaction of not for profit, FMCA and Commercial etc). Also, possibilities of overseas interactions as well. Well worth doing. Good Luck. (I was working, married with 2 youngish kids at school when I did mine - tough but very rewarding).

Don't know about a 'civil servant' MBA the people on my course came from all walks of life, including a number of 'high fliers'. Two key points are accreditation the OUBS has achieved the triple - MBAA, US and EU, and demonstrating the capacity to hold down a job and do well on an MBA - this not only roots you study in the real world but demonstrates time management, resilience, multi-tasking...
