Hey. Just wondering whether there is anyone on here in the Kelley MBA or thinking about it.

Quite honestly, given the online options, this one appealed to me the most. I looked at the cross continent mba at duke but i live in Canada and don't think it could work out for me.

I also looked at UNC but still really favor Kelley. I particularly like the diverse selection of courses and the option to add an additional degree also.

I am just wondering if anyone here is currently enrolled or is thinking about it.

More importantly, does anyone know of the job prospects in Canada? This is my biggest fear with the online MBA although, it would honestly be so much more convenient for me. Not to mention, I think it would be cheaper than Rotman's part time and take half the time. And, they are both ranked similarly in the global rankings. Thus, this option is one I am seriously considering. Although, I still think Rotman is the cream of the crop.

Does anyone know if there is a distinction on the degree or transcript that the degree was completed online? I thought I read that somewhere but I am not entirely sure. Thanks in advance!

I initially thought UNC doesn't have a lot of course selection, but I discovered that they have been in the process of adding more and more courses. So as the UNC online mba program grows, there will be a lot of elective courses to choose from. I think UNC needs to do a better job marketing this aspect in regard to the course selection.

Hey UCLAColumbiaUNC, thanks for your response!

I've read a lot of rave reviews about the UNC mba...not necessarily the online mba but I have heard nothing but good things.

The only thing that kinda turned me off is the higher tuition, the limited course selection and it takes far longer than Kelley. Also, it is a much newer online program.

In general, I think UNC may be ranked higher although, I don't know whether or not it is significant enough for employers to make a big deal of.

My biggest concern is whether I will be able to find employment in Canada. I would hope that Canada can recognize it as a top 20 like the US does.

I honestly think if you are looking to use the online mba to get a new job, you might be in for a disappointment. In general, I'm not too excited about online MBAs. It will be much easier to get into the online mba. The standards for admission will be lower and your Gmat will not matter as much. However, before going this route, be sure the online mba is what you need in your career. Figure out how it will help you versus a traditional mba.
