Online MBA degree from Duke, Fuqua [#permalink] New post 18 Feb 2009, 13:22
I was reading some article about MBA degrees and found this option at Duke. They call it "Global MBA" but what that actually means is online MBA.
"The Duke MBA—Global Executive brings senior executives from diverse locations and industries together for 18 months of focused studies. Students can live and work anywhere in the world while pursuing The Duke MBA. "

Most of it is online but students do meet up several times per year in different locations for face to face sessions. It's a pretty interesting program IMO.

Duke's executive programs are very highly regarded. Definitely something worth looking at if you want to keep your job and go part time.

Also with Duke's global campuses opening up in August there's going to be plenty of opportunities to work on projects with people in London, Dubai, etc. I'd imagine they'll have some pretty sophisticated video conferencing etc resources for the students.......

Agreed -- the expansion to five new international campuses was actually the thing that made me take notice of Duke and apply. It wasn't initially on my list. However, it's worth noting that the global campuses are not yet part of the Global MBA -- they are for the Cross Continent MBA, which is different. (There are some branding issues in the naming of these programs, IMHO -- too similar and confusing.)

I am hopeful that there will be some opportunities for Daytime students at these campuses as well, maybe by 2010-2011 school year, but I haven't heard anything definite. They are very focused on Cross Continent. But as a fluent Russian speaker who hasn't been back to the RF in about 7 years, I am really hoping I can find an excuse to go to St Petersburg during b-school! :-)

That definitely fooled me. But upon further your glance you're right. Here are the bullet points of the 2 programs:

Cross Continent:
# Program format combines unique residential sessions in Asia, Western and Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and North America with Internet-enabled distance learning, including weekly virtual classroom sessions.
# Students can live and work anywhere in the world while pursuing The Duke MBA.
# Global business content is taught on location in major business markets around the world.
# Option to pursue a concentration in a specific academic area of interest.

Global:
* Program format combines unique residential sessions in Asia, Latin America, Europe and North America with Internet-enabled distance learning.
* Students can live and work anywhere in the world while pursuing The Duke MBA.
* Students are all senior managers with significant work experience who bring diverse experiences and perspectives to the classroom and leave the program with a strengthened network of contacts from around the world.
* An optional concentration in Health Sector Management is available for students seeking specialized training in the business of health care.

Basically the only real difference I see between the 2 is that the Global MBA is intended for 30+ people with more work experience than the cross continent one, and that the cross continent expects people to physically show up in class at the learning center.

Are there any other significant differences that people have noticed?
