Admissions Statistics for Online MBA Programs? [#permalink] New post 19 Sep 2011, 14:02
I am considering getting my MBA and will need to do an online distance program due to my job. I am looking at UNC Kenan Flagler, IU Kelley and ASU Carey.

Does anyone know the admissions statistics for the online programs? All I have been able to find are statistics for the full-time MBA programs.

It is a bit scarce.
The UNC program is brand new and has only 17 students in the 2013 class (matriculated in 2011). Their average GMAT score is 700 and the tuition is comparable with the standard program.

Here is a bit about them:

ASU W. P. Carey statistics can be found here:

As an online alum, I can say that the degree has helped me immensely in my career (technology). Like you, my work required me to travel extensively so I couldn't do a campus P/T program (was already accepted to USC Marshall but denied at UCLA Anderson - 700 GMAT). In retrospect, I have no regrets and am glad I was still able to go to a good Pac-12 program; most importantly, however, I'm glad to have gotten the MBA out of the way now that I have a family.

Study for the GMAT...apply...enroll...graduate...good luck!!

I'm not a huge fan of online programs, but that is because I've been through an online Masters of Engineering and figured out the hard way that format isn't for me. If you're sure the online program is your only option then UNC is definitely a good bet. Depending on how much you're willing to spend, I would recommend the Duke Cross-Continent program. You still have the "Online Flexibility" but you do 2 week immersions around the world every 3-4 months, the down side is the program costs $120K (Not including travel).
