Really?...... Yes, Really!





Facebook application offers MBA degree



The London School of Business & Finance is to offer a degree which can be earned through an application on Facebook. The Global MBA app, which launched last month, has attracted more than 30,000 users, and offers the first internationally recognised degree available through the social networking site.

Any Facebook user is free to install the app, which includes course material consisting of video lectures, interactive message boards and a note-taking tool. Unlike many online courses, the Global MBA program will not charge an up front enrollment fee, with students only paying once they are ready to sit for their exams.

College administrators hope that offering course material for free before charging tuition will allow students to “test drive” the online courses, boosting graduation rates.

With an extensive collection of online study material consisting of 80 hours of web video, the MBA program offers additional content once students seeking formal accreditation choose to enroll in the paid course. After paying a total cost of £14,500, students are required to sit for examinations.

hmm... does it sound like a joke? I think it is more of a "marketing campaign" (which I find not stupid at all)

This is London School of Business NOT London Business School.

They list the fact that one of their "notable" lecturers is a CFA 2 Candidate (which means he has only passed CFA Level 1s)......what a joke!

I wonder does it worth getting an MBA. I was thinking about applying in 2+2, but now I think I should get my graduate degree in engineering field.

In my opinion, pursuing an MBA really depends on your post-graduation goals. As for the 2+2, it's an interesting choice, but I guess you should have other options just in case. Have you taken the GMAT?

Best of luck!

I haven't taken GMAT yet, I am thinking between GMAT and GRE. I've heard new GRE is going to be so much easier for international students, and with GRE score one can apply to any graduate school. My goal is to start my own company in the field I am studying after some work experience. Definitely, I would look at my test score first, if the score is average or higher than average, then I would take a shot at it; otherwise, I wouldn't dream about applying in 2+2.
