Voice of our Students

Manuel Sansigre (Spain)

M A Associate at Three Ocean Partners, New York
Class of 2009

I graduated from the MIAF in 2009, after that I worked in a leading Spanish M A boutique and now I am working in M A in New York. Prior to IE, I was working in strategy and finance at IBM, but I believed the banking sector would provide a better fit for my profile. Changing sector is always a tough decision to make in your career path, I have been able to leverage the education and networking opportunities that IE offers.

Dennis Lin (Canada)

Banco Santander
Class of 2014

With an undergraduate degree in music, I was an unlikely candidate to be in business not to mention in the highly specialized world of finance. Taking risks and working hard to get into the business world were understatements – I had to be more strategic in my approach and act with more conviction than others to make it. IE was an integral part in achieving my goal of becoming a truly international businessman and financier.

Masters of Business Administration (MBA) – MBA #mba #programs, #gmat, #maasters


Masters of Business Administration (MBA)

A Masters of Business Administration, or MBA, is the postgraduate degree in business administration and one of the most popular degrees for incoming graduate students, according to the Council of Graduate Schools (based on 2010 data). MBA programs attract students from a wide range of disciplines, including education, hospitality and computer science. Executives in public education, nonprofit and for-profit enterprises and in the health care industry may all benefit from the scientific approach to management MBA courses provide. Earning a Masters in Business Administration can provide a range of skills and tools for graduates outside of the business world including the following:

Business Acumen: Running a business entails more than wearing a suit and tie. It involves understanding financial analyses and balancing the organization’s opportunity costs, both of which are taught in an MBA program. These skills can be valuable outside of traditional business environments, such as nonprofits or in education. Skills for running a successful business may help you keep costs down and ensure that the company stays within operational budgets and also prepare you to pull the plug on a project if it’s simply taking too long or not worth the time.

Leadership: An MBA program can impart the value of leadership and all its related aspects through a combination of training and internships. These programs may help teach you how to put your newfound leadership skills to use not only in day-to-day business operations, but in life outside of work as well.

Communication: An MBA program involves rigorous training, assignments, reports, presentations and group projects, all of which may provide you with the necessary communication skills to handle real-life business situations. The experiences you develop during the program have the potential to set you apart from others in your field.

Networking: The alliances that you form with your classmates may last a lifetime and the network that you create can be one of the most important and valuable things you take away from an MBA program. MBA graduates have said they often felt that the associations formed during the program were invaluable and could be drawn upon for years after they have earned their degree.

There are a number of MBA program specializations to choose from, including information security, operations management and accounting. Beyond the program specializations, there are also a number of different potential education paths you may take — full time, an executive program, distance learning or earning a double degree in two MBA focuses. There are many options, so it may be advisable to weigh the pros and cons of each according to your individual circumstances.

UCLA Anderson with a 620 – GMAT pwned me, but I


I’ve been meaning to write this for a while now to say thank you to Beatthegmat .com for all the support and assistance. I’ve spent a lot of time combing these forums for guidance and mental back-up as I’ve obsessed on b-school apps and the gmat in general. I just want to let you know that I was successful in getting into my target school and let others know that it is indeed possible to do with a less than “perfect” application.

I applied to only two programs, both part-time, USC and UCLA. I was waitlisted at USC and became very very worried. Shortly after I received an email from the UCLA adcoms asking if I would be willing to move my app from the part-time program to the Executive program. I figured it couldn’t be a bad sign and agreed. I interviewed with the part-time program first and it went really well. I was then asked to come in and interview with the Director of the Exec program as well. She asked that I enroll in a Stats course to improve my quant ability and “underline my commitment to the program,” which I did (of course!). She also offered to ask the head of their career center to help me look for a job as I had just been laid off (I’m in real estate finance, go figure). I received a call from the Director two weeks later letting me know that I would be offered admission. I can’t tell you how excited I am! I just attended the first meet and greet/networking event with the other students and I can’t tell you how impressive they are! All executives, industry leaders, and business owners! Very very accomplished and ambitious people and all very down to earth and helpful.

I originally thought that I had a pretty decent chance at USC Marshall and threw the UCLA Anderson “Hail Mary” on the recommendation of a co-worker that is in their part-time program. I am soooooo glad I took her advice. I never would have thought I could get in with such poor GMAT scores. So if anyone is out there that is feeling like it can’t be done, please know that it is possible. There is no ‘perfect candidate,’ just write essays that speak from the heart and be willing to convey what it is you are trying to accomplish. You just need to submit a rounded out application that clearly states your goals and what you want to achieve. If you are able to meet the school minimums and come across as a real person with real goals, you have a much better chance of success! If anyone has any other questions, please feel free to ask!

Thanks again,

My background:
34 years old
San Diego State Undergrad: History
University of California Prof. Certificate – Real Estate
4 years exp in real estate multifamily asset management/finance/light Business Intelligence
5 years exp Hospital lab assistant (school job)
6 years exp account manager for world-wide soft drink company

Stanford Executive MBA #stanford #university #mba #tuition


Stanford Executive MBA Information and Resources

For those looking to get ahead in the world of business, there isn t any other single act that is likely to have as much of a positive impact as an EMBA from Stanford or from one of the other top US schools. Designed specifically for executives with real world experience, the EMBA program dispenses with the basics and dives into the topics that business executives need to deal with today. You ll get a world-class education in less time than typical Masters programs in large part because of your existing experience

The first step is deciding just what Executive MBA program to take. If you re looking at Stanford, you re probably also looking at some of the other well-known schools too. That s smart. But we re confident that after a little research you will, like many others before you, decide that Stanford s program is the best choice.

And we re here to help with information and resources to help you navigate the seemingly maze-like Executive MBA process. We know you re busy so let s get started!

Step 1
It might sound odd, but the first step is to update your resume. We ll use this to assess your skills and other credentials. From this we ll be able to determine your eligibility and also let you know if you need to complete the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT).

Step 2
As you move into the application process, we ll assign you an Executive MBA Admissions Counsellor. This person will guide you and your organization through the entire process ensuring that nothing is missed and that you proceed in the most efficient manner possible.

Step 3
Other documents may be requested, but we at Stanford will need you to gather the following as a minimum:

  • The completed application form.
  • Two references including one from your current supervisor.
  • An endorsement letter from your employer.
  • Copies of your official transcripts.

    Executive MBA, Part-time, Full-time and Correspondence #ucla #part-time #mba


    Types of MBA programs

    Full-time | Part-time | Executive | Dual | Distance | One-year vs Two year

    1. Full-time MBA

    Most of the U.S. universities offer a two-year full-time MBA (full form of MBA ). For those who wish to complete their MBA within a year and get back into the job-market, an MBA from the U.K. wherein many universities offer a one-year MBA program would be ideal. The living cost incurred for a one-year course would also be lower than a two-year MBA program.

    2. Part-time MBA

    A part-time MBA suits the needs of working professionals who can complete the course on a part-time basis while still being employed. Though this would mean extended duration of the course, the income stream would continue throughout without having to take a break from work.

    3. Executive MBA

    This is aimed for the experienced professionals from various fields who wish to sharpen their managerial abilities, expand their career potential, gain leadership qualities and acquire international management experience in a multi-cultural environment. Most of these programs have a flexible schedule and are designed to suit working professionals.

    4. Dual MBA

    This program suits those who find the MBA course clubbed together with the stream they wish to pursue. Some schools like Wharton, Kellogg have been offering a three year joint J.D. / MBA program.

    NYU Stern School of Business also offers a range of choices for a dual MBA course. It also has a tie-up with HEC Paris wherein candidates on completion get an MBA degree from both the colleges. The selection criteria for these dual MBA program vary from school to school.

    These candidates complete the courses of their choice with the added advantage of having an MBA which is surely a feather in the cap.

    INSEAD on the other hand has a dual-campus program wherein candidates can choose to study in their Asia campus at Singapore or Europe campus at Fontainbleau, France. It also has a tie-up with Wharton School of Pennsylvania.

    5. Distance learning MBA

    This is a means of obtaining an MBA without actually having to attend the program on the campus. This could be done through various correspondence courses, online course material and discussions, teleconferencing and videoconferencing.

    The advantage of this model is that these courses can be completed from the comfort of our home and while continuing our current profession. Some of these programs also offer flexibility in terms of their course structure.

    One-year v/s two-year program

    For those who wish to earn an MBA degree with all the pros associated, but are wary about taking a long break from work or have financial constraints, a one-year MBA just serves the purpose. More often, persons with slightly greater experience prefer to go in for a one-year program.

    On the other hand, a lot of young professionals who are in a position to devote more time for an MBA, a two-year stint would work just right. This would give a wider coverage of the various subjects, longer duration of internship, more networking opportunities and thus greater exposure to all that an MBA has in store.

    What you should know about the best part-time MBA programs, nyc

    For working professionals, getting a Master of Business Administration (MBA) has never been easier.

    Up until recently, if you wanted to get an MBA, you’d have to go to school full-time. This meant quitting your job. Today, due to technological advancements, as well as pressure from students and businesses, many school offer more options—like part-time, evening or weekend courses.

    This is just one of several trends percolating throughout the nation’s top part-time MBA programs. Other trends, like diversifying the student body, experiential learning, and people already with advanced degrees looking to broaden their knowledge base, are becoming a key component of a part-time MBA education.

    Programs like University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business, University of Texas at Austin’s McCombs School of Business, University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business, University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business and New York University’s Stern School of Business offer a number of flexible options to earn an MBA—options that don’t require students to give up their steady income to obtain a graduate degree.

    Nyc part time mba

    For example, Maryland’s Smith School has three self-sustaining campuses in convenient locations around the region—in Rockville, Baltimore and Washington, D.C. “We know that many students choose a location based on the proximity of their employer while others have reason to select a campus closer to home,” said Cliff McCormick, executive director of MBA and MS admissions at Smith. Students take their core courses at a ‘home campus’ but can then take elective courses at any of the three campuses.

    In the Washington region’s pressure cooker environment, “we know that working students can have demanding and often unpredictable schedules, requiring the need to learn at different times of the day and often with different tools and methods,” McCormick said. The school addresses this need by leveraging technology for blended learning and multiple class delivery formats. “We find this kind of flexibility to be attractive to working adults.”

    This selection of schools also provides the flexibility of weekend programs—the Ross School offers a weekend program where students fly in from all over the nation for two years—in addition to typical evening courses.

    Students in the weekend program begin in May and graduate in April two years later; their coursework is equivalent to the full-time load at Ross, with the addition of some distance learning, explained Patricia Russo, the school’s managing director of the part-time MBA program.

    “It is not an online degree, but there is some distance activity and recorded lectures that students can watch at their own pace,” she explained. The weekend program began in 2010 in response to customer need, she said.

    “After the financial crisis, people got risk adverse, and quitting their jobs completely, even for a top program, was too much of a risk,” Russo added. “You can keep your job and still increase your skill and experience level at work.”

    Nyc part time mba

    Now that MBAs are being offered part-time on the weekends and evenings, these top schools are also noticing the diversification of students—whether in their personal or professional backgrounds. For example, University of Maryland’s Smith School is attracting more women than ever before, McCormick said.

    And students at McCombs’ Austin campus tend to draw from technology, start-ups, medical and financial services, according to Joe Stephens, assistant dean of part-time MBA programs.

    What’s interesting, he said, is that McCombs “values people without business backgrounds.” People who come from unconventional fields are desired and welcomed.

    “It’s one of the few degrees that you can take people from all walks of life, put them together and get better outcomes than if you had all like-minded people,” Stephens said. “People like to put an MBA in a box, and I think that’s an incorrect approach to describe an MBA and its value.”

    New York University’s Langone part-time MBA program in the Stern School of Business also attracts a diverse array of students, according to Alison Goggin, executive director of MBA admissions. She mentioned a student who came from the beauty industry and now works for Google. A professional dancer recently applied as well. Another example was a doctor who wants to run his or her own practice or become a hospital administrator.

    “You don’t have to have taken business classes or quantitative classes or come from a quantitative job to be admissible for the program,” she said.

    Adding to these schools embracing the unconventional background is a trend that Ross School’s Russo is seeing with students who have advanced degrees in specific fields—they are applying to the part-time MBA program because they want a “broader tool kit.” For example, engineers from the Detroit area might have master’s degrees but want to become general managers, she said. Or people with law degrees might want to stay affiliated with the field but broaden their roles by earning the MBA, she added.

    Finally, part-time students are able to translate a classroom education into real-world, practical experience. For example, according to Glenn Sykes, associate dean for the evening and weekend MBA programs at the Booth School of Business, part-time MBA students are heavily involved with extracurricular activities that bring theory into practice.

    Nyc part time mba

    There are more than 42 professionally oriented or social clubs available to weekend and evening students. There’s a sales club, a wine club, a running club and a dining club, just to name a few.

    “There is a great deal of interest in clubs,” Sykes said. “It’s a new trend.”

    The Smith School evening/part-time program has its own student government, “with which we work closely,” McCormick said. “As a result, we find an increased interest among our working adults to engage in more of our case competitions and global program opportunities, which is fantastic.”

    “Finally, whether they are career enhancers or career transitioners, an increased number of students enjoy engaging with our dedicated on-campus career advisors.”

  • Top 5 Ways Social Media is Used by Healthcare Professionals, scranton


    Top 5 Ways Social Media is Used by Healthcare Professionals

    Social media has become widely used by individuals and businesses to stay connected, communicate and even market products or services. As these sites evolve and become a prevalent way of reaching out to consumers, healthcare professionals are finding new, effective ways to utilize social media.

    Social Media and Healthcare

    Many healthcare managers are working to effectively utilize social media to engage patients and consumers. Through effective marketing and communication tactics, organizations are able to move away from traditional advertising techniques, and use the internet to connect with consumers in the healthcare field. Consumers heavily rely on information found online and use the internet to gather healthcare information and connect with other patients to garner support and learn about similar conditions. Others utilize these resources for research or to share experiences with healthcare providers and other related organizations. Patients also have a tendency to seek information via social media that assists in the selection of doctors, specialists and hospitals to make informed decisions on the best practices to seek care. Individuals will use social media to post reviews or other comments that support or possibly deter others from choosing that type of healthcare in the future. It is essential for providers to be active on social media and provide accurate information, connect with readers and implement marketing techniques where applicable.

    Avoiding HIPAA Violations

    The Healthcare Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) was enacted by Congress in 1996 with the intent of providing patients more control over their healthcare records. HIPPA encompasses a variety of key points including:

    • Reducing healthcare fraud
    • Implementing industry-wide standards for information provided on electronic billing
    • Providing health insurance to individuals that are changing or have lost their jobs

    In terms of protecting healthcare information, HIPPA sets guidelines that pertain to the protection and confidential handling of an individual’s health records. These guidelines have become somewhat of an issue in terms of social media. Healthcare professionals cannot directly address patients through these outlets as it violates the privacy and confidentiality regulations outlined by HIPPA. Other healthcare facilities are encouraged to implement strict policies and guidelines for what employees are allowed to post on social networking websites. Some ways to avoid HIPPA violations include:

    • Distribute clear social networking policies to employees
    • Avoid any discussion of patients, even in general terms
    • Speak generally about conditions and treatments
    • Prominently post your policies and procedures on all social media platforms
    • Do not practice medicine online by responding to patients offline

    Utilizing Social Media

    There is a variety of ways that healthcare managers are utilizing social media to enhance their services and provide patients with accurate medical information. Here are the top ways professionals in the field are using social media:

    #1: Share Information

    Social media is intended to provide individuals the ability to access information quickly and communicate with others. Healthcare organizations utilize these tools and websites to share information with consumers in a variety of ways such as sharing general information about flu shots and tips to avoid a cold. Sharing news regarding outbreaks or health hazards is an effective way for healthcare facilities to provide accurate information to patients. It is important to note that all patient specific information requires permission along with a signed release. Other forms of sharing information through social media include:

    • Provide updates on new technologies
    • Introduce new doctors in a practice on social networks
    • Answer questions on various topics (e.g. how to reach doctors or hours of operation)
    • Deliver generic pre- and post- operative care information
    • Offer patients any updates that relate to the practice itself

    #2: Compare and Improve Quality

    Another effective way that healthcare managers utilize social media is by spending time evaluating their competitors to get an insight into the services they offer and overall patient satisfaction. By taking a look into different practices and their social media involvement, professionals have the ability to mimic these methods to enhance their own. Some organizations will do better through social media; providers can determine whether or not they need to take more appropriate action to quickly respond to patient requests and improve customer service.

    To gather feedback and improve quality, social media interaction can provide doctors and physicians with immediate responses from individuals to help understand common reactions to medications, as well as overall consensus from patients on new techniques in the industry. Using this information that is readily available on social media allows for healthcare organizations to learn from patient reactions and adjust accordingly. By following feedback on these sites, healthcare professionals also have the opportunity to evaluate the possibility of additional services in the industry.

    #3: Train Medical Personnel

    Some healthcare organizations have begun to utilize social media channels as part of their training process. During presentations, trainees are encouraged to use certain hash tags on Twitter or join other groups to engage one another to make training processes more enjoyable and interactive. These training techniques provide trainees a central location to ask questions and quickly receive answers. Social media gives participants the power to provide presenters with immediate feedback on training sessions.

    Trainees are not the only people who benefit from this social media technique. Organizations can use training videos and pictures from training sessions to engage audiences and enhance their social media channels by marketing their facilities and exemplifying their innovating training processes.

    #4: Live Updates during Procedures

    Although somewhat controversial, there has been an increase of doctors and surgeons providing updates from the operating room. Through Twitter and other social media outlets, healthcare professionals have the ability to deliver up–to-date information during procedures to fellow doctors, medical students or simply curious individuals. Some say these updates are a distraction in the operating room, while others argue that it is an innovation and provides educational value that should be embraced.

    The use of social media during operations also provides healthcare facilities the ability to gain attention from industry specific outlets as well as mainstream media. As a marketing approach, organizations create a buzz on social media with these updates, creating excitement and enhancing public awareness of an individual organization to attract patients and medical personnel.

    #5: Communicate in Times of Crisis

    In times of crisis, the use of social media has increased to provide minute-by-minute information to consumers. Through social media, hospitals and other organizations are able to deliver real-time updates on hospital capacity, operation status and emergency room access. Having an active social media presence allows healthcare professionals to pass along information shared by organizations such as the Red Cross, and the Centers for Disease Control or communicate with news outlets.

    As social media continues to become a valuable asset to healthcare organizations and new methods of use are implemented, the industry requires administrators to set guidelines and procedures for effectively managing these channels. To provide the best customer service and accurate information while adhering to HIPAA regulations, organizations need individuals versed in the healthcare administration. For those interested in pursuing an online Master of Health Administration, The University of Scranton provides the most effective tools and resources to advance a healthcare career.

    What are Self-Paced Online Degree Programs? #self #paced #mba, #what #are


    What Are Self-Paced Online Degree Programs?

    Self-paced online degree programs allow students to set their own academic schedules, while traditional online programs typically follow an academic schedule set by the school. That’s why a self-paced program might appeal to working professionals and others who need flexibility when taking classes. Read on to learn about these programs.

    Self-Paced Online Degree Programs Overview

    Self-paced online degree programs are designed for students who may find full-time, on-campus programs hard to fit into their busy schedules. You can find online undergraduate and graduate degree programs in a large number of disciplines. Lately, online degree programs have started being offered from a variety of educational institutions, such as two-year technical and community colleges, as well as four-year universities. A few of the basic attributes of self-paced online degree programs include the ability to study at one’s own pace and the online delivery method.

    Important Facts About Self-Paced Programs

    Undergraduate and graduate certificates, bachelor’s and master’s degrees

    Engineering, computer science, business administration, human resources management, global studies and others

    Some programs require brief in-person residencies

    Self-Paced Progress

    Unlike traditional university programs, self-paced online programs give students the flexibility to make their own schedules with regard to lessons and class assignments. Working professionals can benefit from self-paced programs because the pursuit of an education follows their own time schedule. Students can study in the evenings, on weekends or whenever their schedule permits. Most programs allow students to work on one or more courses simultaneously. While some programs have certain completion time limits, such as 6- or 12-week terms for instance, others may be more flexible.

    Online Coursework and Interaction

    One of the benefits of a degree program offered online is the ability to complete coursework via the Internet. A personal computer and Internet connection is all that’s required to easily access class materials. This includes study guides, exams and supplemental materials. Students can also use their computers to interact with fellow students and faculty via email or online forums. Such Internet communication makes it possible for students to ask questions and engage in a dialogue, just as they would in traditional, on-campus courses. Contemporary online teaching methods include video tutorials, live chats, online quizzes and online classroom discussions.

    Other Benefits

    Some self-paced online degree programs allow you to pay as you go and only pay for the courses you’re currently taking. Since you’re typically charged by the course at the time of enrollment, you have greater flexibility in arranging your education in accordance with financial demands. Also, because online degree programs are often extensions of on-campus programs, the same professors who teach on-campus courses often teach the online sessions. And, these courses often include the same texts and learning materials.

    Chicago Booth EMBA Application Essay Tips and Deadlines #executive #mba #chicago


    Chicago Booth Executive MBA Essay Tips Deadlines

    Chicago Booth EMBA gives you just one essay, but with ample space to make your case holistically. This approach to the essay question indicates that they are looking for people who can organize their thoughts, b uild a credible and compelling case for their candidacy. and maintain an extended yet focused discussion. The Booth EMBA adcom clearly puts value on verbal expression and expects senior level managers to have mastered this skill. Give yourself time to develop and refine your essay accordingly.

    1. Why are you seeking an MBA from Chicago Booth and what unique knowledge and experiences do you hope to contribute to the program? (maximum 2 pages, 12 pt. Times New Roman )

    The question zeroes in on the elements directly relevant to the adcom, but allows you to elaborate within those parameters. Considering the pivotal role the one required essay plays in your application, the key challenge is making good decisions about the following four elements.

    • Within the overall space allowance, how much space should you allocate to each part of the question?

    It will vary person to person. For example, a person who has her own company will require some “backstory” for context setting before discussing future plans, so she would allocate more space to goals than someone who is rising up the ladder at McKinsey. Someone with atypical goals will need to spend more time clarifying why he wants the Booth MBA than a more conventional applicant. Analyze your own case and block out the essay accordingly.

    • You have to discuss your professional goals in order to explain why you are “seeking an MBA from Chicago Booth,” but how to present them?

    Since EMBA programs are part-time, an ideal place to start is your current work: what do you want to achieve and how do you want to grow during the years in the program? (This has the added benefit of giving the adcom a view of what you’ll bring to the table based on this work.) From there, move on to your goals for the 5-year period following graduation – give the most detail here; make it really concrete. Then sketch your longer-term career vision/plans, necessarily less detailed. Finally, explain how each of these career/goals phases require skills, knowledge, and perhaps relationships derived through the Booth EMBA.

    • How should you structure this relatively long, complex essay?

    Simply and straightforwardly is usually best. Start with your current/immediate goals. (If you need to provide some backstory for context, as noted above, do so as succinctly as possible.) Then progress through your goals. Next, discuss why you need the Booth EMBA now, connecting your reasons to the previously stated goals. Finally, present your contributions.

    • What “unique knowledge and experiences” should you talk about?

    Select two to four, and for at least two, give concrete examples. For all, discuss relevant insights – after all, that’s what you’re really bringing, not the fact of having done something. To select the best examples, consider what aspects of your experience would be interesting and/or useful to the Booth EMBA cohort and give them fresh insight or perspective. These experiences could be related to industry, function, geographic/global experience, a formative personal experience. a particularly meaningful extracurricular (community or other non-work) involvement, etc. Choose points that expand the reader’s understanding of you, things they won’t necessarily glean from your resume. AND that have relevance to them.

    2. OPTIONAL: If there is anything else you would like the Admissions Committee to know about you, please share that information here. (maximum 2 pages, 12 pt. Times New Roman )

    This question invites you to present new material that will enhance your application, as well as to explain anything that needs explaining (e.g. gap in employment, choice of recommender if not using a direct supervisor, etc.). As far as enhancement points, there should be a clear value to the information you’re sharing – and it should not be content that more appropriately belongs in the main essay (contributions of unique knowledge and experiences).

    3. REAPPLICANTS ONLY: Please give us an update on your professional, academic, and community activities since your previous application and highlight what you have done to strengthen your application. (maximum one page, single spaced, 12pt. Times New Roman )

    Whatever developments you discuss, for each, describe the situation/experience concretely and clarify the impact you had. Also clarify how it demonstrates growth (i.e. not just “another” achievement), and why it makes you a stronger candidate.

    One Year Online MBA: Accelerated Programs #year #online #mba


    Featured Programs by Specialty

    One Year Online MBA Programs

    A typical online MBA program lasts between two to three years, which is only logical given that nearly all standard MBA programs regularly accept students who do not have a background in business. This means that the programs must last longer in order to properly educate all MBA students, including those without prior experience in the field. However, if you already possess extensive experience in business or hold an undergraduate degree in that field, then you do not necessarily need to relearn all of the fundamentals of business theory. A one year MBA online skips over the basics of business that well-versed students already know and delves right into more complex management practices and models. This will not only cut down your time in school, but it will also reduce your tuition costs for an MBA certificate because you will not have to remain enrolled for as long as typical MBA students.

    Featured Top Colleges

    Syracuse, NY and Online

    Qualifying for a 1 Year Online MBA

    As mentioned previously, you must have extensive prior experience in business in order to enroll in a 1 year online MBA program. This means that most programs will only consider applicants who earned their undergraduate degree in business or a closely related field, such as economics. Some schools, such as Emory University. will also consider students who have shown academic strengths in engineering or mathematics. However, simply having a bachelor s degree in an accepted major is not enough. You must also have fulfilled all of the prerequisite coursework during your undergraduate studies if you wish to earn your online MBA in one year. These prerequisite classes, such as the ones listed below from Babson University. are similar across all schools and include:

    • Financial Accounting
    • Managerial Accounting
    • Finance
    • Statistics
    • Quantitative Foundations of Decision Support Systems
    • Strategy
    • Operations Management
    • Organizational Behavior
    • Marketing
    • Microeconomics
    • Macroeconomics
    • Business Law

    These are all basic business topics that will be expanded upon in a one year online MBA program, so you must be certain that you are comfortable enough in those subject areas to not have to review them.

    In addition, you must complete your prospective school s application checklist. Along with your completed application itself, you must submit an official transcript, your GMAT scores, at least two letters of recommendation from previous employers or professors, an essay of intent, an updated resume, and your TOEFL or other English language test scores if you are of a non-English speaking background in order to be considered for entry into a one year MBA online program.

    The Academics of Getting an Online MBA in One Year

    You may wonder just how to get an MBA certificate after enrolling in a program. Essentially, a one year online MBA is the second half of a typical two-year MBA program. In fact, in brick-and-mortar schools, those who earn an MBA in one year attend the same classes as those who are in their second year of a regularly paced program. The top online MBA programs in 2011 begin during the summer and last until the following spring. You will complete about 35 to 46 credit hours in classes such as:

    • Managerial Economics: This course is focused on the motivation and effects of decisions made by the administrative officials of firms, particular when it pertains to opportunity costs, transaction costs, and market power.
    • Spreadsheets for Business and Finance: This course is practical hands-on instruction on how to use Excel for business and finance problem-solving, data organization, and data condensation.
    • Leader Development: This course works to help students develop the skills needed to successfully manage teams and see projects to successful completion. You will learn lecture methods, self-presentation tactics, and behavioral skills.

    All one year MBA certificate programs also allow students to pick a concentration within the business field, such as consulting, consumer products, global management, and much more. You will take classes strictly related to your concentration of choice. For example, if you decide to pursue a concentration in IT management, you will take courses such as Technological Innovation Management and High-Tech Product Marketing.

    Every seasonal term is punctuated with examinations, and some of the top online MBA programs in 2011 also include mandatory internships, which will allow you to practice what you learned in the classroom. Most online MBA certificates may end with a Capstone project as well, which is an intensive research presentation and paper end-of-the-program assignment that is completed with the guidance of an online instructor or counselor. The Capstone project typically reflects a real-world case study of the existing business practices.

    After completing all of these degree program requirements and earning satisfactory marks on your classes, examinations, and Capstone project, you will have successfully earned your online MBA in one year.

    Profile of Online One Year MBA Students

    Now that you know just how to get an MBA certificate, you may be wondering who typically enrolls in these types of programs. Varying types of students enroll in one year MBA programs, but the majority are working adults looking to go back to school, according to the student profiles of the University of Notre Dame and Emory University. For both schools in 2011, most of the students enrolled in the one-year MBA program have five years of work experience and are about 27 to 28 years of age.

    These averages indicate that the fast-paced one year MBA is best suited for those who not only have an undergraduate degree in business, but also those who have ample professional work experience as well, though that is not an explicit requirement for admissions. This type of MBA program can help professionals in the field receive the additional education they need to take on more responsibilities and move up in their careers.

    Why Earn a One-Year MBA?

    For working professionals and those with an undergraduate degree in business, an online one year MBA program is a logical choice. It will allow them to skip unnecessary reviews of business basics and delve right into the more complex topics that will adequately challenge them. In addition, as the one year MBA is only half as long as a typical MBA program, the tuition is much lower for the shorter program. For example, at Clarkson University. the tuition for a one year MBA program is approximately $10,819 less than the regular two-year MBA program. With financial aid, grants, and scholarships, you could incur even more savings.

    Overall, a one year MBA will allow you to get a quality education without having to relearn subjects you already know. You will save money and, arguably more importantly, time, which will allow you to continue working with minimal interference from your MBA courses.

    OnlineMBA Guide

    Accelerated MBA Program

    An accelerated MBA program is a condensed, intensive degree plan that offers an MBA education in one year, rather than the usual two years. In an accelerated online MBA program, students view lectures, complete course work and participate in discussions through Internet platforms, as they would in any online MBA program. However, an accelerated online MBA program will entail more advanced work at a very fast pace. Accelerated MBA programs, which usually take about 10 to 15 months to complete, have been growing in popularity in recent years. Businessweek.com reports that at some schools, admissions officers have seen application rates for their one-year online MBA programs surpass those of their two-year ones.

    Featured Top Colleges

    Villanova, PA & Online

    Advance to the top of your profession with an MBA from Villanova University. This online master’s program can be completed within six semesters, and includes an intensive residency and two practicum courses.

    Minneapolis, MN & Online

    Capella University offers more than 10 specialized MBA programs focusing on in-demand skills with learning geared toward working professionals looking to quickly advance their careers.

    Northfield, VT & Online

    Norwich University offers several specialized 18 month MBA programs designed with flexibility and personal attention you need to earn an MBA that fits your schedule and addresses your specific career goals.

    Malibu, CA & Online

    Whether you choose to focus on leadership, finance, marketing or management, earning your MBA from Pepperdine University’s online program will give you the skills you need to succeed.

    The Benefits of an Accelerated MBA

    The popularity of accelerated online MBA programs can be attributed to the fact that these one-year degrees save students both time and money. Students are becoming less willing and able to spend two years out of the workforce, and an accelerated MBA program allows them to enhance their job potential without losing valuable time.

    According to a survey conducted in part by The Wall Street Journal, 82 percent of students and alumni cited the ability to re-enter the workforce faster as a top factor in choosing a one-year MBA. Additionally, many accelerated online MBA programs cost less than their two-year counterparts. So, the lower cost, plus the fact that students will be able to make money with their degrees sooner, make an accelerated online MBA an excellent option financially.

    Various Accelerated Choices

    Many schools offer accelerated online MBA programs geared toward individual student goals. A great example is the varied accelerated MBA program available at Suffolk University. The Accelerated MBA for Previous Business Majors allows students with undergraduate business experience to opt out of as many as eight courses of the traditional 18-class MBA program. Suffolk offers a similar arrangement with its Accelerated MBA for Attorneys. The GMAT is waived during admission with documentation of LSAT scores. The business law course is waived, and four elective credits are transferred from the student’s law school degree. This shortens the traditional Suffolk MBA program by at least five courses, and students are able to graduate after 10 to 13 classes. Suffolk also offers an Accelerated MBA for CPAs, which works in the same way.

    More and more schools are starting to offer accelerated versions of their online MBA programs. However, it is important to ensure that an MBA degree is awarded as a year-long program. The term accelerated is sometimes used to describe two-year programs as well. Two schools that offer quality one-year online MBA programs, designed to take only 10 to 15 months to complete, are Babson College and the University of Florida. In fact, both schools placed among the top 10 one-year MBA programs in rankings by Macquil.com. Also, the business programs at the University of Florida are accredited by the AACSB, and, according to the school website, the university was recently recognized as having one of only two distance-learning programs in the world to earn the rating of excellent by The Economist magazine.

    Accelerated Versus General

    Classes will move more quickly in an accelerated online MBA program than in a typical one. More information will be covered per class, and tests will be more intense and more frequent. An accelerated program is geared toward students with extensive backgrounds in business, usually bachelor’s degrees in business combined with at least two years of professional experience. Course work will start at a more advanced level than that of a general MBA. Rather than reviewing basic business concepts, students will delve directly into the practice of those concepts. Accelerated programs are often tied to a school’s general MBA program. For example, students of the one-year MBA online at Babson College begin the program in May with an intense 12-week summer program. Then, students take their elective courses along with second-year students of the general MBA programs. This means that students need to have already taken a significant number of business courses before entering a one-year program. The prerequisites for the Babson program include Financial Accounting, Managerial Accounting, Finance, Statistics, Quantitative Foundations of Decision Support Systems, Strategy, Operations Management, Organizational Behavior, Marketing, Microeconomics, Macroeconomics and Business Law.

    Despite the current popularity of accelerated online MBA programs, there are definite pros and cons to the shortened style. According to The Wall Street Journal survey, almost two-thirds of students in one-year online MBA programs spent more than 15 hours per week on schoolwork beyond lectures and class discussions. Combine that with an intense course load, and students in accelerated programs have little time for anything other than studying, working and sleeping. Some students surveyed said they felt exhausted by the fast-paced curriculum and some mentioned not having had enough time to fully absorb case studies. However, there are many benefits to such an intense and fast-paced course schedule. Some students and alumni reported that the intensity of the accelerated program helped fuel constant engagement with the material and close bonds with classmates.

    Students in one-year online MBA programs will get less of an opportunity to network with their classmates and get career assistance from administrators than those on a regular track. Students in the faster-paced programs have little time for internships or consulting projects, which means less of a chance to make company contacts. According to The Wall Street Journal, many such students had problems with their career-service departments not doing enough to help them make contacts or create career paths. Much of this is due, in part, to the fact that there just isn’t time in an accelerated program for students or school administrators to reach out, but another factor is the reality that an accelerated program is created for students with extensive business experience. This can be a turnoff to students who are looking to change careers and make industry contacts; they may need more connection opportunities and should consider two-year programs. Students with years of experience are less likely to require internship opportunities or career assistance, so they may not see accelerated programs as lacking.

    Ms mba dual degree #ms #mba #dual #degree



    Leaders in business and industry recognize the importance of communication, but few MBA programs offer communication courses. At the same time, communication professionals recognize the importance of good business practices, but programs rarely offer courses in business. The Master of Arts in Communication/MBA dual degree program was developed to fill that need.

    Quick Stats

    MBA: Washington, DC; Baltimore, MD; Online
    The MA in Communication portion of the degree may be completed fully online or on-site at our Washington, DC campus location.

    10 courses for MA in Communication;
    21 courses for the MBA

    The Johns Hopkins MA in Communication/MBA was developed for managers in public and media relations, advertising, crisis communication, organizational development, and risk communication. It will provide you with the knowledge and skills to solve communication problems in the workplace, use new media to transform existing business practices, reach out to media and clientele, and manage corporate images. It also allows you to expand your knowledge and skills in business and management, preparing you to lead nonprofit, public sector, or commercial enterprises.

    With the MA Communication/MBA degree, you’re uniquely positioned for a leadership career in business and communication. By completing both the managerial education requirements of the MBA and the advanced disciplinary requirements of a specialized MA in Communication, you’ll develop critical intellectual and strategic leadership skills that will allow you to tackle the complex challenges of communication and business.

    MBA Courses in Kansas #mba #kansas #city


    Kansas MBA Courses and Programs

    Are you thinking of enrolling in some graduate business courses?

    It normally takes a couple of years to complete an MBA if you are planning to pursue it on a part time basis. The courses are certainly not easy and it will require a good deal of effort. However it will definitely be worthwhile when you complete your degree.

    Working on your MBA on a full-time structure is usually easier and faster for the majority of students, but being a full-time student also means you will have to give up your current job. If you presently have a bachelor’s degree in a business field, the process will probably take you only one full year in order to accomplish.

    If your bachelors diploma was in a subject other than business, it may well take you two complete years as you will most likely need to undertake a preliminary year of prerequisites such as classes in accounting, math and economics.

    You could work on your graduate degree through customary campus-based classes, online courses, or a blend of each. Many adult students enjoy the added convenience of completing at least a couple of programs online.

    Return on investment

    The expertise Global EMBA students gain is immediately applicable in their companies and organizations.

    Participants become smart decision makers, effective problem solvers, and well-prepared leaders able to take on increasing responsibilities. Both participants and employers receive a quick return on their investment as new concepts are brought into action.

    Free Sample College Admission Essays #how #to #get #an #mba #for


    On the surface I think I am like most young and modern American women: I take school seriously, I have dreams and goals for the future that I am determined to make happen, and I don’t expect anyone to do the hard work for me. I come from what is an increasingly normal background: my parents are divorced and I live with my mom and sisters and only occasionally see my dad since he now lives on the other side of the country, but I still feel very lucky to have a supportive, if spread out, family behind me. What makes me different from the rest of the crowd though is how I choose to fill my time away from school.

    Sometimes a task can seem monumental when you try to visualize the entire thing, but if you break it down into smaller goals suddenly it can become manageable. When I first started to consider going to college so that I could make a better life for myself and my daughter, I thought it was going to be almost impossible. I was working in a convenience store trying to make ends meet as a single mother, but I just knew that there was something more out there for me.

    My father always used to say to me: if you want people to respect you, first you must respect yourself . At this juncture in my life I see going back to school to earn a degree in nursing as a symbol of respecting myself and the goals I have set for myself. I have made sacrifices in my life that are common for many women: putting my husband s career before my own, and my child s life and growth before my own as well, and for many years these sacrifices have been worthwhile.

    Many people enjoy building things with Legos when they are growing up, but usually not to the exclusion of all other activities. For me though, nothing was more fun that getting a picture in my mind’s eye and then being able to manifest it in reality using those ingenious little blocks, or any other substance that lent itself to my uses.

    I was born and raised primarily in Medellin, Colombia, which is a land rich in beauty, but sadly for many of the people living there it is also a land of where poverty is a way of life. I am one of the few lucky ones who has never had to suffer the pains of an empty stomach, or had to struggle to make a living off the land with little or no education to back up my choices. However, if called upon to find a people with a better disposition or more welcoming spirits than those same indigenous people I grew up near, one would be very hard pressed.

    Sometimes in life it just takes the influence of one person to help you see yourself in a whole new light. For me that person is my high school counselor Mr. Jones. I have been meeting with him twice a month for the past two years and the difference these meetings have made in my outlook in life, my goals for the future, and most importantly my self-confidence, is amazing.

    When I first moved to the United States from Jakarta 8 years ago I was upset about leaving all of people I knew and loved behind me to follow my mother and brother here where we could find better “educational opportunities”. I resented the fact that my dad, who is a physician, had to stay in Jakarta to keep up his practice to fund this move, and that we would only be able to see him on the odd occasion he could get away long enough for the endless flight to Arizona, this land where we knew no one.

    The curtains are swaying slightly before me and I know that they will soon part and a sea of faces will suddenly be before me, staring up with their eyes burning into mine, unseen because of the footlights, but felt nevertheless. My nervous energy is mounting, but this isn t the first time I have preformed on stage, and hopefully it won t be the last. I can remember decades ago in high school when I first began dancing in front of an audience.

    There are many challenges facing my generation today: our nation is at war, there are people in our own extremely prosperous country who go to bed hungry every night, and this spring, when I will be lucky enough to graduate from one of the best private high schools in the country, there will be other students elsewhere in America who are also graduating even though they can’t read their own diploma.

    When I think of ____ University, the aspects that most impress me and fan my desire to immerse myself in this prestigious learning environment are _____ University s excellent resources. In addition to having some of the most recognized and lauded faculty in world, ____ is committed to maintaining a diverse student population. As person of African heritage who grew up in Jamaica, and is now planning to embark on my university studies in the United States, I see this commitment to diversity as an essential element.

    Executive MBA #executive #online #mba


    Jason Bewley

    Chief Financial Officer Executive Vice President, Silver Airways

    Handicapping Your Odds Of Getting Into A Top MBA Program #how


    Handicapping Your Odds Of Getting Into A Top MBA Program

    by: John A. Byrne on April 18, 2014 | 41 Comments 115,054 Views

    She’s a 27-year-old American who is fluent in five languages and has been working as an analyst for the past three years at one of the big three consulting firms. This young professional has with a keen interest in international development and education and wants to return to her employer to continue her consulting work in emerging markets and non-profits.

    He’s a 25-year-old business technology analyst at a top five consulting firm. With a 760 GMAT and a 3.5 GPA from a major public university, he is hoping to use the MBA to make a career switch to corporate finance at Facebook or Google. But he s fearful that will torpedo his MBA application hopes so he plans to tell schools that he wants to upgrade to another consulting job at McKinsey, Bain or Boston Consulting Group.

    For the past three years, this 26-year-old Asian female has worked as a senior equity derivatives specialist at Bloomberg LP in New York. With a 710 GMAT and a 3.4 grade point average from a Top 20 liberal arts college, she hopes the MBA would help her make the transition to a bulge bracket bank like Goldman Sachs or Citi.

    Sandy Kreisberg, founder of HBSGuru.com

    What these applicants share in common is the goal to get into one of the world’s best business schools. Do they have the raw stats and experience to get in? Or will they get dinged by their dream schools?

    Sanford “Sandy” Kreisberg, founder of Boston-based MBA admissions consulting firm HBSGuru.com, is back again to analyze these and a few other profiles of actual MBA applicants who have shared their vital statistics, work backgrounds and career goals with Poets Quants. This time he gives one Harvard Business School candidate 50%+ odds, a true rarity, even though her equivalent GMAT score is actually below 700.

    As usual, Kreisberg handicaps each potential applicant’s odds of getting into a top-ranked business school. If you include your own stats and characteristics in the comments, we’ll pick a few more and have Kreisberg assess your chances in a follow-up feature to be published shortly. (Please add your age and be clear on the sequence of your jobs in relaying work experience. Make sure you let us know your current job.)

    Sandy’s candid lowdowns:

    Ms. Dual Degree

    • 328 GRE (169V/159Q)
    • 3.9 GPA
    • Undergraduate degree from a Top 20 university
    • Work experience includes three years as an analyst for a top consulting firm (think McKinsey/Bain/BCG) with top ratings, and two years on the strategy team of a “big name” educational tech non-profit in Silicon Valley
    • Internships in international affairs at the State Department, for international development non-profits, and work experience in more than four countries
    • Extracurricular involvement as a board member of a mid-size non-profit in California and pro-bono consultant for non-profits.
    • Fluent in five languages
    • Short-term goal: To return to employer and continue work in emerging markets and non-profit organizations
    • Long-term goal: To lead program/operations for a successful international development organization with a focus on education and literacy
    • “Applying to joint MBA/MA (Education, Int l Affairs) and joint MBA/MPP programs; will apply Round 1 to all schools”
    • 27-year-old American female

    Harvard: 50%+
    Stanford: 40%+
    Wharton: 40% to 50%

    Sandy’s Analysis: You’re a very impressive candidate.

    If there is a student who could successfully present a GRE, it’s you because you’re applying for a dual degree. Your GRE score translates to a 690 GMAT and you are obviously interested in top schools like Harvard, Stanford and Wharton. If you are going to present a 690 GMAT, you are better off reporting it as a GRE score because it won’t hurt a school’s ranking. That is just an issue for general consumption.

    You have a resume full of prestige organizations and schools. And your story about what you’ve done and what you want to do makes sense. It is a tightly-knit story..

    You’re a class act. You have such a tight narrative that the dual-degree may make sense for you. But I personally don’t recommend getting a dual-degree. I think it is a waste of a year and a waste of money. Here’s why: If you are shrewd about the way you handle the MBA, you can get the schmooze value of the dual-degree your second year. For instance, let’s say you want to go to Harvard Business School and the Kennedy School. My advice is just go to HBS and spend your second year schmooze around the Kennedy School. You can make all the contacts and you can save yourself a year of tuition and a year’s worth of income. In your second year, you could take a good number of the Kennedy school courses by cross registering there.

    You have real Stanford DNA. The only boo-boo is your low GRE, but I think your chances are really good and even better at HBS. Wharton may say, What is this person doing here? Wharton has a special person who recruits people for social enterprise, but Wharton might take a close look at this and say this gal is going to Stanford or Harvard.

    10 Ridiculously Cheapest MBA Programs in USA #online #mba #cheap


    Happy Schools

    10 Ridiculously Cheapest MBA Programs in USA for Out of State Students

    this was realy helpful.
    wel cud you plz tel me if a 3yrs undergrad can apply to these US inst. if not thn cud you ans if it even exists and if yes plz giv a link.
    with regards,

    If you are looking at MBA for further studies, usually institutes look at a minimum of 16yrs education (or 4yr undergrad degree) Correspondence courses are not accepted to qualify and all the courses have to be done in accredited institutes.

    For students who have only 15yrs education (3yr degree), there are a few alternatives.

    1. MBA Bridge program/Pre-MBA for students with 15yrs education
    2. If you have 2-4yrs minimum work experience, the university could consider it equal to a 4th yr of undergrad studies thus making you eligible. You ll have to check with the university or it will be mentioned on their websites
    3. You could do a 1yr/2yr Masters course to qualify. Remember it has to be from a UGC-AICTE accredited institution rated A or better by NAAC.

    P.S. Pre-MBA programs also refer to few weeks long programs for GMAT/TOEFL preparation or even programs for already qualified students who just want to experience what classes will be like before actually starting graduate courses. So make sure you search for a year long or 8-9months long MBA Bridge Program.

    kindly assist me with the cheapest public university in USA that offers MBA in financial management.

    PG Courses Tabs – Queen Margaret University #mba #hospitality


    – There is a practical project instead of a dissertation. Students are challenged to research, plan, manage and evaluate a project in conjunction with an external business or organisation, allowing them to develop career-enhancing skills, confidence and opportunities.
    – Reflecting contemporary working practice, our teaching and assessment takes a strong group and team focus.
    – Class sizes are beneficially small: it enables students to work closely with fellow students from diverse backgrounds and allows lecturers to develop strong relationships with the students. The smaller cohort of students also allows for participation in regular visits and events.

    We are recognised as a centre of excellence in hospitality and this MBA has been devised in consultation with
    employers and managers within the sector.

    This MBA offers real-life experiences and engagement with the industry. We have a strong belief and desire to take you out of the traditional classroom setting to experience and explore the sector for yourself. For example, current students were overnight guests at a five star hotel where they were able to discuss the history, operations and challenges with the owner.

    Within the hospitality sector, the need for high performing groups and teams is of particular importance. The course takes a clear and consistent focus on team and project dynamics and challenges you to take on different types of roles in delivering objectives. You will study a range of business and hospitality modules and complete a project with a hospitality organisation

    EXIT AWARDS: MBA (180 credits)/ PgDip (120 credits)/ PgCert (60 credits)

You will be expected to participate in discussions, develop ideas and engage with experiential learning. Assessment methods will include management reports, essays, web-based discussions, reflections on practice and group work with presentations. A central part of the course experience is the regular involvement with industry, through specific visits, guest speakers and events all of which provide valuable insights into practice, contemporary trends and thinking. Class sizes are normally 10-30

    Links with industry/professional bodies: We work continually with a wide range of business organisations and public services, as well as the third sector, individual business leaders and industry experts to develop our courses. This ensures that along with in-depth theoretical underpinnings, the courses are rooted in relevance and industry practice.

    How Much Does It Cost to Study an MBA? #how #much


    How Much Does It Cost to Study an MBA? Costs and funding

    2016-01-09 by Jennifer Weingarten

    The costs of an MBA vary across different business schools, different programmes, and different countries. In this article, we want to examine what makes up these costs and how you should do your calculations if you are considering starting an MBA.

    Tuition fee

    The tuition fees for an MBA start at around 3.000 and can go up to 70.000 EUR per year.

    The differences are huge and it is very hard to assess the quality of the programme by the tuition fee. A low tuition fee does not necessarily indicate a low quality of education, just as a high one does not guarantee it. A good idea is to check the accreditation of the programme from institutes like AACSB. AMBA and EQUIS. Accreditation from two or even all 3 of these institutions is a good indicator of high quality.

    Worldwide, the average tuition fee for an MBA is around 25.000 – 30.000 EUR per year, for good quality MBA degrees from well-regarded Universities and Business Schools.

    Study-related costs

    Computer or laptop, software, books, subscriptions to journals, travel costs for study-related trips are all study-related costs that can occur while doing an MBA. It is important to check what exactly the tuition fee comprises: sometimes the study material (like books, papers, etc.) is included in the tuition fee and sometimes not. These costs can easily go up to 10.000 EUR per year for certain programmes and it is in your own interest to know that in advance.

    You can find it out from the website of the programme or by inquiring about it from students or alumni of the MBA programme you are interested in. On average, these costs are around 3.000 EUR per year.

    Accommodation and food

    These costs are most of the time not included in the tuition fee. You have a choice between on-campus or off-campus accommodation, with on-campus being more convenient, but most of the times also more expensive. Off-campus accommodation can also be harder to find and you have to search for yourself, which can be quite time-consuming. This depends very much on the country and the city where you are doing your MBA and is on average 11.000 EUR per year.

    Lost salary

    As most of the MBA students are young professionals, you have to consider the lost salary. For a 2-year MBA programme, a student loses a net of 48.000 EUR on average.

    So, considering MBA averages, the costs are around 25.000 + 3.000 + 11.000 = 39.000 EUR per year for a student, and 39.000 + 24.000 = 63.000 EUR per year for a young professional.

    Luckily, there are ways to cut these costs down or to find financial support. See the article on how to finance an MBA for more details.

    A very good way to save costs is to do a distance MBA. This can be partially or completely online. From tuition fee and study-related costs perspective, there is not much difference, but there is a difference when it comes to accommodation, food and opportunity costs. It usually is even more challenging to keep working while studying an MBA, but it is possible and highly appreciated by the employer market, as it denotes excellent multi-tasking capability, great time management skills and exceptional focus and learning aptitude.

    Ole miss mba #ole #miss #mba


    Academic Programs

    The degree of Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) provides a broad exposure to all facets of the business process and prepares you for a career in many types of organizations. No matter which major you choose, the School of Business Administration will help you build the skills and competencies you will need to be successful in your chosen career, including:

    The ability to analyze and solve complex business problems

    An understanding of the global business environment

    An appreciation of the value of diversity and creativity

    The mastery of advanced information technology

    Leadership and interpersonal skills

    Skills in persuasion, negotiation, and motivation

    High ethical standards

    An understanding of the languages and cultures of business

    Communication and presentation skills

    A willingness to be a change agent

    The experience of working in team environments

    The degree of Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) is offered with majors in Managerial Finance, Banking and Finance, Real Estate, Risk Management and Insurance, Management, Marketing, Marketing and Corporate Relations, Management Information Systems, and Economics.

    Recognized as one of the top 100 Business programs in the United States by U.S. News and World Report. the School of Business Administration delivers a great value in undergraduate education. The business curriculum is innovative and challenging. Current issues relevant to ethics, international business, social and legal considerations, and advanced information technology are integrated throughout the courses. You will learn through lectures, cases, team projects, and group presentations – all designed to encourage participation. You will frequently work on teams with your classmates to solve actual business problems and to present – and defend – your solutions. Your courses will have a sharp technology focus to build the cutting-edge computer skills you will need in the workplace. By combining a strong foundation in fundamental business knowledge with hands-on experience with real business problems, your Ole Miss business degree will prepare you for long-term success in your chosen field.

    Because our programs train students in the fundamentals of business, they provide an excellent steppingstone to an MBA or other specialized graduate degree programs. Many of our students use their business degree as an effective foundation for law school. Students are offered an ambitious, yet nurturing environment that prepares them for well-rounded, meaningful lives while preparing them for long-term success in any business career they choose.

    An MBA could be only 12 months away. or it can be completed on a part-time basis. or even online!

    The University of Mississippi’s MBA program is a rigorous and intensive program, but it is also very flexible . It is designed as an accelerated one year program. However, if you prefer to enroll in the program as a part time student, taking one or two classes per term, you may extend the duration of the program. You can take as few as one or as many as four courses per semester. Each course meets one day a week and conveniently offers a 2:00pm OR 6:00pm class time. With the option of day and evening classes, you can design a schedule that fits into your busy life. Students may begin the program in the summer, fall, or spring.

    If you need even more flexibility, consider the Professional MBA program — where all courses are online, and there are no set meeting times for classes. It is the same degree as the residential program, with the same courses taught by the same highly qualified faculty. The only difference is that you get the additional flexibility to complete the courses from anywhere with alternatively-delivered methodologies such as Internet learning systems, telephone conference calls, videoconferencing, interactive CD-ROM/DVD technology, and short in-person gatherings.

    Choose a career that creates knowledge and changes lives.

    The Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Business Administration is the highest possible degree in business. It qualifies the holder for academic positions at colleges and universities all over the world, or for many professional positions in business and finance. We offer major fields in Finance, Management, Marketing, and Management Information Systems. If you are curious, intelligent, and want to expand the envelope of human knowledge through research and other scholarly activity, you should consider a Ph.D. in Business Administration. As a teaching professor, you will also have the opportunity to make a lasting difference in many students’ lives, some of whose lives will be changed forever. There are few careers that offer so much.

    Trinity Center – Trinity Washington University #mba, #msa, #trinity, #trinity #college,


    Welcome to the Trinity Center

    The Trinity Center for Women and Girls in Sports is a $20 million state-of-the-art athletic, recreational and educational complex located in the heart of Trinity Washington University s campus in northeast Washington. Proudly the nation s largest facility dedicated to women and girls in sports, the Trinity Center is home to Trinity s NCAA Division III athletic programs and the Trinity College community.

    The Trinity Center can be your home for fitness too with a number of great fitness programs. We have memberships available for individuals and families. To meet the needs of area schools, community organizations and local businesses, the Trinity Center has facility rentals for organized sports and special events.

    Breaking News: Check out our shout out from the Washington Post: The entire article: wapo.st/2hQ5RZ5 .

    Share this with your friends, family and co-workers and encourage them to download our 7 day pass!

    When pollsters interrupt people’s dinners to ask about their New Year’s resolutions, very often the top three responses are “get in shape,” “lose weight” and “save money.” Find a deal on a gym membership, and you can do all three. Here’s how…

    • Go to college: Colleges and universities are another often-overlooked resource. Most now have elaborate exercise facilities to attract students, and many offer memberships to the community. In the D.C. area, one example is Trinity Washington University, which charges Brookland neighbors $520 a year to join its Trinity Center gym. Compare that with the roughly $600 to $1,200 a year some of the big D.C. gym chains charge, according to Consumers’ Checkbook.

    The 10 Top Business Schools in Canada 2014 #canada #mba #online


    Top MBA

    The 10 Top Business Schools in Canada 2014/15

    • This article is based on the results of the QS Global 200 Business Schools Report 2014/15. See Canada’s top business schools for employability based on the results of the QS Global 250 Business Schools Report 2017 .

    There were some precipitous falls felt by the 10 top business schools in Canada across QS’s new regional MBA rankings for North America this year.

    Among the new top five, only Canada’s Sauder School of Business saw a rise when placed alongside their US regional counterparts. Rotman School of Management. meanwhile, rated among the top 10 for the region as a whole last time round. now has to make do with a place in North America’s top 20.

    However, according to the latest applicant research. Canada remains the third most popular MBA study destination in the world. So, for those looking to pursue an MBA in Canada. a better comparison can surely be found by looking more closely at this year’s changes to the 10 top business schools in Canada alone.

    Within Canada there was much less movement to be found. Four of the top 10 retain the positions they held last year. However, with the University of Saskatchewan’s Edwards MBA and Concordia University’s John Molson School of Business dropping out of the top 10 this time round, there are two new entries to be found in our rundown of 2014/15’s 10 top business schools in Canada:

    1. Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto

    The University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management retains its position at the pinnacle of this year’s top business schools in Canada, despite the tumble that took it out of the top 10 for North America as a whole.

    The Rotman School is well represented in the latest ‘Thinkers50’ biennial ranking of the most influential figures in management thought alive today. Three of its faculty members feature, two of whom rank within the top five, and all of whom are associated with the school’s Martin Prosperity Institute (MPI) – a think-tank that puts the role of urbanism in global economic prosperity at its center and one of nine research institutes at Rotman.

    The school’s dean, Tiff Macklem. joined Rotman this year from the Bank of Canada. where he had served as senior deputy governor since 2010.

    2. Ivey Business School, University of Western Ontario

    The school decided, on the basis of research, that HBS’s case study method was the best approach to management education and today, Ivey is held to be the world’s largest producer of Asian and Indian business cases through its links to Hong Kong and Mumbai – where it has campuses.

    Five years ago, Ivey graduates began making a pledge to uphold the business profession’s code of ethics and towards the end of last year, the school celebrated its 90th anniversary by opening a new building in a ceremony presided over by former astronaut and first Canadian to walk in space, Chris Hadfield.

    3. Sauder School of Business, University of British Columbia

    Vancouver’s Sauder School of Business has recovered well from last year – when it fell as low as seventh among the top business schools in Canada. This year, it’s up to third with the nation’s second-highest score in the academic segment that now forms 15% of QS’s regional MBA rankings.

    As well as its full-timeMBA in Canada, Sauder offers a part-time international MBA in partnership with Shanghai Jiao Tong University and this year, the school became the sole Canadian member of the Global Network for Advanced Management – a collaborative coalition of 27 business schools around the world that is spearheaded by the US’s Yale School of Management .

    4. Desautels Faculty of Management at McGill University

    McGill’s management faculty was renamed in honor of Marcel Desautels in 2005 after receiving his gift of C$22M (c.US$20M) – an unprecedented donation to a school in Canada at that time.

    Aside from its full-time MBA, Desautels also offers a bilingual EMBA together with HEC Montréal (see below) and a weekend MBA program in Japan from the school’s base in Shinjuku, Tokyo – home to what is believed to be the world’s busiest train station, through which an estimated 3.6M passengers pass through each day.

    The school will celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the McGill MBA, having graduated its first class in 1965.

    5. HEC Montréal

    HEC Montréal. like its fellow Montrealer (or should we say Montréalais ?), Desautels, holds an unchanged position at the mid-point of the 10 top business schools in Canada this year.

    As the school is a French-language university institution, its MBA program can be found in both English and French – but should not be confused as an affiliate of HEC Paris with whom it shares the HEC (École des Hautes Études commerciales ) title. The school celebrated its 100th anniversary back in 2007 (it has offered an MBA program since 1968) and recently announced the launch of a specialized MBA for the aerospace industry .

    6. Schulich School of Business, York University

    Schulich School of Business ranked as high as second in QS’s Canadian MBA rankings last time round, but for 2014/15 it finds itself down four places to sixth.

    Aside from its full-time MBA in Canada, the Toronto-based school at York University runs an MBA program in Hyderabad, India. as well as an international MBA that puts more emphasis on gaining global experience.

    The Schulich MBA has scored highly in the realms of sustainability and business ethics, coming out first in the latest international sustainability MBA rankings produced by Canadian magazine, Corporate Knights . and placing second in Beyond Grey Pinstripes ’ rankings of 2011. The school opened its Centre of Excellence in Responsible Business (COERB) in 2010.

    7. Queen’s School of Business

    Offering a one-year full-time MBA, QSB was one of two schools in Canada’s top 10 this year to report a majority of international students (non-Canadian citizens) in its class of 2014, posting a proportion of 60% – although this number includes those with permanent residency.

    The school offers six MBA specializations (or concentrations), including one in healthcare management .

    8. Alberta MBA Programs, University of Alberta

    The home of the Alberta MBA will celebrate its 100th year in 2016 (although the MBA itself was launched in 1964) and has its history chronicled both in print and online as part of an ongoing project to strengthen its alumni community.

    Today, the school offers a number of dual degrees – two-year programs combining an MBA with a master’s in agriculture or forestry are found on offer alongside the more common MBA/JD (law) and MBA/MD (medicine) options of study.

    9. Telfer School of Management, University of Ottawa

    Established as the university’s Faculty of Management Science in 1969, the school was renamed Telfer School of Management in 2007 in tribute to MBA alumnus Ian Telfer. who donated C$25M to the school – a sum that outstripped that received by McGill’s Desautels Faculty of Management in 2005 (see above).

    The school currently identifies entrepreneurship, health systems management and analytics as its three strategic areas of excellence, through which it has been channeling its recent development. Its full-time MBA is a one-year program, but there’s a two year French-language version available as well as an offering in Metz, France.

    10. DeGroote School of Business, McMaster University

    The DeGroote School is one of six faculties within McMaster University and located in Hamilton and Burlington, Ontario, since moving from Toronto way back in 1930.

    In 2012, the school celebrated 50 years of its MBA program and 20 years under the mantle of the DeGroote School of Business – in honor of benefactor and Canadian entrepreneur, Michael G. DeGroote. In addition to its full-time MBA, the school has a co-op MBA program that combines work experience with academia for students with little to no previous experience. This has been on offer since the 1970s and is the school’s most popular program.

    This year, the school appointed an experienced journalist, Gordon Pitts, as its business writer in residence – a role created to enhance soft skills in areas such as media, communication and persuasion among its students.
