Hi Red217,

First of all, full disclosure, I work for the Indiana University Kelley School of Business. That said, I do want to let you know a little bit about our online MBA program, Kelley Direct.

Kelley Direct uses the same faculty that were ranked #1 for teaching quality in our full-time MBA program. Many of them have been teaching in the program since our launch in 1999, so they are very familiar with the unique intricacies of the online environment.

What differentiates Kelley Direct is the amount of flexibility that we provide. You could complete the program in as little as two years or as many as five, depending on your individual circumstances. You can choose from 60 courses, including global consulting courses in which you travel to places such as South Africa, India, Botswana, or China to help a small business solve a major challenge. You can also add an MS degree to your MBA with just 4 additional courses.

You can learn more by visiting http://kelley.iu.edu/onlinemba. We'd also be happy to put you in touch with one of our current students or alums - just email us at kdirect@indiana.edu.

Good luck and please let me know if I can help in any way!

Best,

Darren

Hi Mayur...
If you do it from a reputed university or institute it earns a same value as traditional or part-time MBA.If you are working it saves your time.And you don't indicate that you did it online on your resume.

I must disagree. An online MBA does not give you the network nor the skills needed to lead. How can you be an effective leader if you've never stood up in front of a class and given a presentation? There is a reason why the top universities refuse to create online programs.

Thanks for your comment, it inspired me to write a post about why what you said doesn't apply to my online MBA program: http://kelleydirect.blogspot.com/2014/03/real-networking-leadership-development.html

Full disclosure: I'm a Kelley Direct online MBA student AND I now work for the program (as of last month). I'd be happy to answer questions anyone has from either perspective!

Hello friend,

If you are thinking for an online MBA then it is such a good thought because to beat this challenging market one should be a professional and no one has time and money to attend regular classes of MBA and having to spent on it, that`s why distance education become popular.
But I wanna suggest you that first you check the universities that provide online MBA courses, university rankings and university online MBA fee and then proceed further.
If you wanna get suggestion then check the links given below.
