Hi experts,

am thinking to do an online MBA during this period. Any advice on this?

Looking at 2 options:

1. Macquarie Business School's online Global MBA Degree
ranked 74 in 2019 by FT
fee is AUD 33k
fully online, seems like the duration can be like within 1.5 yr to 2.5yr to complete

2. Warwick Business School's distance learning MBA
ranked 24 in 2019 by FT
fee is pound 33k
fully online, seems like the duration cannot be shorten


Appreciate any kind souls' comments and guidance.

Thanks

Has anyone here done the 'Master of Business Administration' by University of London (Academic Direction by Queen Mary University of London)? Local Provider is Amity Global Institute.

It sounds very similar to the Global MBA program at UOL's UK website: https://london.ac.uk/courses/global-mba

Are they the same?

I am looking for reviews, hopefully by current students :s12:

I got the word that due to the downturn. The coy will pay a maximum or 40-50% of the fees. They also mentioned if possible, take as much scholarship as possible. My industry is hit really hard. I joined a year or 2 late. :x

Other than the scholarships available at the university, other than your cash - I am preparing to pay some as a self investment. Where else people look for? Did some google, usually, Govt agencies.

Thanks.

You have a budget? If no budget I recommend you just go for the best brand MBA you can afford.

What do you mean need to select? All schools have their own requirements including local schools. I’m not aware of local schools offering online programs. Part time yes.

The ones I mentioned yes you need to fly over once a year for a weekend or week. That’s pretty much it.

Need some advice, kind of unique situation

Am looking to take a masters in Marketing, traditional disciplines or newer digital marketing are both fine with me

I've worked on and off about 8 years in my industry (gaming), with more focus on marketing recently. In mid management now and since I'm already at the peak in my current company, only way up is to work for a different company.

My current focus is in User Acquisition in tech and Digital Marketing.

My highest qualification is actually just a advance diploma which isn't really recognize. If locally recognized qualifications mine is probably PSLE

Not sure what kind of Masters programmes are open to me, will be paying it myself, not company sponsored.

Just decided to improve now cause I don't have too much commitments yet and my current pay allows me flexibility

Hi,


You can explore those programs with mature student entry. In such program, you will take 2-3 modules first and you have to pass it before you are allowed to be admitted as a full candidate. One such school is Heriot Watt University. You can take a look at their MBA program (they do not have marketing program on offer directly though).


Alternatively, you would have to check private educational institutions. Just call up the consultants and I am sure that they will find ways to help you bridge the gaps you are facing now.



Of course, my concern might be the challenges posed after enrolling into the program. Hope you can cope with it.

Shortlisting MBA

Hi guys recently the MBA offered by Coventry is only 15k after some subsidy they give

https://www.psb-academy.edu.sg/cove...siness-administration-in-global-business#fees

Is it worth it? I am also considering the Masters of Management programme from SUSS

https://www.suss.edu.sg/programmes/detail/master-of-management-mmgt

Both are around same course fee. As I was an alumni from SUSS I get to have around 50% course concession fee, however I am not sure if it is good on my resume to have the SUSS name for both bachelor and masters column.

Can any bro shed some light? Thanks:s12:

What’s wrong with working for ppl without MBA? so long one makes more and happy great. How many CEO has MBA?
If pay for MBA ROI is nil then problem.

Heriot Watt MBA used to be offered under EASB. I remembered visiting the school to find out more enquiries about it.
