The University of Florida’s Hough Graduate School of Business online MBA program is “the best overall combination of rankings, student feedback, faculty level, and course structure.” It offers a “high-caliber program with flexibility for a chaotic work environment,” “great value for the cost,” and an “accelerated pace.” Students rave about the “challenging, yet very beneficial” program, which includes “real-life business cases,” a “great online platform to deliver materials,” and “quality instructors.” One student marvels about “the program’s ability to take an online education and foster an environment where in two years time I feel like I know all fifty students in my cohort personally and professionally.” That isn’t an easy task, but one of the ways this is accomplished is by “keeping the same groups for half of the program.” Another is by providing the opportunity “to meet every few months on campus, to connect with cohorts and lecturers.” Students voice the general opinion that “the program allows a good balance” between schoolwork and personal life, although “certain terms are more hectic than others.” One Read More...

Babson College is “highly regarded” for its Blended Learning MBA Program and is the “#1 school for teaching entrepreneurship.” The program specifically focuses on entrepreneurial studies in all of its classes. About half of the students are looking to start their own businesses, “while the other half is looking to expand functionally or enter into higher levels of management.” “There is a heavy focus on three areas: entrepreneurship (most importantly), group/team work, and management/organization.” For most graduate students, flexibility is crucial. Many MBA students want a program where it is possible to “balance both work and school” without giving up their current source of income. The Babson College Blended Learning MBA program offers the opportunity for students to attend classes both on campus and online. One student says, “I really enjoyed the Blended Format. Working in Corporate Finance means sometimes I cannot leave work to attend night class and my schedule is incredibly demanding.

With “AACSB accreditation,” the online MBA program at the College of Business at West Texas A&M University has “the best value” for a highly regarded academic program. Students describe the rigor of the program as a “significant commitment” where “one must be mentally prepared.” Although it can be “very trying at times,” it is still “manageable” for the majority of students.

One student says, “I have been able to maintain a work-life balance in part due to free time during slow periods on the job, but I still found three classes per semester too much. I recommend two classes per semester, taking advantage of winter and summer sessions to stay on track to graduate within two years.” The faculty members at WTAMU help to make the MBA program convenient for the hectic lives of Read More...
