Your Advice

Post Thu May 29, 2008 5:53 am
Hello,

I am talking to many people and taking their advise on this. I think I should take MBA Gurus thought on this too... Can you please give your opinions...

I am in Miami and working for a good company. At this time I am withdrawing six digit salary (lower side). I have almost 11 years of IT background with experience in project management to resource management.

Now, I am at a stage where I feel an MBA will be beneficial for my career and it can give me a push towards higher management. However, because of other liabilities I cannot pursue full time MBA. I am inclinded towards part time/executive MBA programme. Kellogs has an extension center in Miami but the fees is definitely beyond my reach. Can you please

1. Suggest few good schools/MBA programme here.
2. Any other options that I should look for (like internet MBA) from some other renowned school.
3. In your opinion, from career advancement point of view - how much return should I expect from such programmes? Will it really help me in moving towards higher management and earn higher than what I am getting now.

Looking forward to hear from you.

Hi AATech,

Unfortunately I dont know much about either program. I would encourage you to do more research on the schools - particularly their program strengths, alumni network and recruiting efforts (which companies recruit at the schools). This should help you evaluate which program would better suit your interests.

Regards,

NP

Thanks NP for your reply.

Univ of Miami and Univ of Florida have weekend programs in Miami. But I am not able to judge which one has upper hand over the other. Would you, by any chance, have any clue?

Thanks,
aatech
