Alumni were full of praise for their pro­gramme. Jorge Picon, a senior man­ager based in Canada, says: “Despite some prej­u­dices about online pro­grammes, it proved to be a great expe­ri­ence with a lot of inter­ac­tion between col­leagues and teachers, building strong rela­tion­ships that are still active. The pro­gramme was also extremely demanding.”

How­ever, career ser­vice was sin­gled out as an area needing improvement.

The UK’s War­wick Busi­ness School and D’Amore-McKim School of Busi­ness at North­eastern Uni­ver­sity in the US com­plete the top podium. Cen­trum Católica from Peru comes in at number 15.

Com­pared with full-​​time MBAs, online MBAs offer flex­i­bility and allow par­tic­i­pants to fit the pro­gramme round work, family and social life.

How­ever, “online” does not mean a quick and easy route to an MBA degree. It is rec­om­mended stu­dents study for a min­imum of 15 to 20 hours a week on top of their full-​​time jobs.
