Evaluating Online MBA Programs

Online MBA degrees are usually targeted towards students interested in part-time learning. Thankfully, over the past five years, these offerings have grown in quality and scope. Whatever your interest, there’s probably an online MBA degree out there to suit your needs.

There are two major formats you’ll encounter:

  • 100% Online: All courses are offered through the web. You never have to set physical foot on the university’s campus.
  • Hybrid: This popular format combines online courses with in-person internships, residencies and/or a variety of “immersion” activities.

As always, make sure your online program is properly accredited. Check to see if it has both regional and AACSB accreditation. If it doesn’t have AACSB or a similar business accreditation, contact the university and ask why.

You should also look into whether the program is affiliated with the business school or the distance learning division. Business schools, as a rule, have much more credibility in the marketplace. Does the online MBA have the same faculty as the bricks and mortar version? Is the curriculum the same for both? If not, why not?

Advantages & Disadvantages

Online MBA degrees come with predictable upsides and downsides. Upsides include:

  • Greater flexibility in scheduling
  • Lower tuition
  • Reduced expenses (e.g. gas, textbooks, food)
  • One-on-one professor/student interaction

But by choosing an online format, you lose:

  • Opportunities to collaborate with (and learn from) fellow students, teachers and visiting experts
  • Credibility in the eyes of some employers
  • Access to campus resources (e.g. business incubators)
  • The structure and discipline of attending class

Wondering if online is right for you? Ask the school if you can “sit in” on a class or view a course sample. You can even get your feet wet by taking a free MBA MOOC (“Massive Open Online Course”) from a major university. Check out the offerings on Coursera, edX and Udacity.

If you’re intent on an 100% online program (instead of a hybrid format), search for schools that are willing to organize internships and work-study programs in your local area. On-the-ground business experience is vital for MBA graduates.

Online vs. Bricks & Mortar

The jury is still out on whether having an online MBA degree harms your future job prospects. Once upon a time, no company would touch you. Today, advances in technology and the willingness of prestigious universities to offer distance learning have changed the game.

As we talked about in our section on What to Look for in an MBA Program, the key to an MBA degree is reputation. The name of your school may be much more important to employers than the format of your program. An online degree with AACSB accreditation from a top-tier school is going to trump a traditional MBA from an obscure one.
