As the subject implies, can anyone speak to the quality and value of the Boston University PT MBA program? I'm currently trying to narrow down my options for a part-time program in the Boston area and I'd love if someone could speak to the overall quality of the program, including the quality of the professors and curriculum, the rigors of the coursework, extracurricular options, career progression, etc.

Thanks!

msmonkey3,

Did you ever get any information on this topic? I also have the same curiosity... I am looking into BU and BC PT MBA programs, but it seems like a lot of mixed feedback across the different forums.

Hi friend,

At Boston University, they are committed to providing evening MBA students the same quality education and support as their full-time students:

Same faculty teaching full-time and evening students—in the same building
Same elective options within an MBA curriculum specially designed for working students
Later hours for student and career services, our library, and Starbucks
MBTA stop right outside our door, and discounted parking in our underground garage

I'd also be curious to hear about people's thoughts on Boston-area part-time MBA programs.

My concern about them is largely that they're ruinously expensive. BU and Olin, while highly regarded (or so I hear) are in the six-figure range. And unless it's a super-elite brand name, I don't see why I should pay top dollar.

Personally, I'm trying to decide between UMass Boston and UMass Amherst's Isenberg school, which offers a "hybrid" online/offline model where you take some classes in person at their office in Boston and some classes online. Isenberg seems to be slightly more prestigious but might offer less in-person interaction, especially with Boston-area business types. I can't tell yet whether the curricula are all that different. The price is right, though: About $25,000 for the whole degree.
