What is the difference between Campus and Online?

Schools that offer college degrees may be campus based or online or a combination of the two. Many institutions offer a combination of a traditional physical campus (“brick and mortar schools”) experience with some online access, and these are categorized as Campus. Since you will be required to attend some classes or labs on campus, you can’t plan on completing your degree from home. Online is used for programs that can be undertaken entirely online using virtual rather than physical classrooms. Today there are Online opportunities available from private and public universities as well as from institutions that belong to CCA: Career College Association.

Do all MBA programs take one year?

All MBA programs take at least one year and most take up to three years to complete. A few schools offer accelerated one-year to fifteen month MBA programs, but they require a business undergrad degree and significant real world experience. One such accelerated program is the Executive MBA, but it can still take up to two years to complete depending on the school, the program and your personal schedule. You should plan on spending two years full-time or three-plus years if you will only be able to attend evenings and weekends.

When should I begin applying for MBA programs?

There are a number of steps you need to complete before you are ready to complete a business school application. After completing your undergraduate degree, the next step is the GMAT (the Graduate Management Admission Test). Do not be afraid to take the GMAT more than once, and do not take it until you are ready. Your work experience in the real world is also essential, and some accelerated MBAs require a minimum of six years. This should make it easy for you to garner the recommendations. Make sure the people you ask for recommendations actually know you well. With all that accomplished, you are ready to apply for any MBA program.

How much will an MBA cost?

The average tuition for an MBA degree can range anywhere from $20,000 to $50,000. This is a significant cost that may require you to seek financial aid or to take out a student loan. If you undertake a traditional program at a brick and mortar college that takes two years, you also need to factor in the loss of your salary while you are earning your MBA. There are many ways to mitigate the cost, such as accelerated executive MBA programs that only take a year to complete. Additionally, there are many MBA programs that offer non-traditional schedules, such as meeting just on Saturdays, in the evenings, or even online options that you can do on your own schedule.

Do people with work experience get preference when applying for an MBA?

While an MBA program provides you with the higher-level skills you need to succeed in business, most business schools want to see what kind of commitment you have to your career. That is why prior work history is an important element in your MBA application. While there is no defined quota for the number or percentage of experienced applicants to be added to the student body, most business schools prefer to have a mix of seasoned professionals along with recent graduates. Applicants with work experience have a psychological edge in the interview process as their interviews tend to focus predominantly on their work experience and not just their academic accomplishments.
