Less time = Less value? [#permalink]

Would like to get some advice on whether having less time to spend utilizing the university's resources essentially negates the value of going to it, even in top tier MBA programs?

Aim: Chicago Booth

Factors:
Going for weekend part time program.
I live 4 hours drive away.
My background is engineering.

So while a top tier MBA program may have top notch faculty, resources, networks and internships, I find myself unable to utilize them if I only travel to Chicago on Saturdays only to take classes and leave after that. Also, if I choose to stick to engineering industry, does it further erode the value I can get out of Booth as they are known to produce more of other industries?

Thank you.

I don't think part-time MBAs are worth the time or money. Most schools have them simply to generate money. Have you noticed how Stanford and Harvard don't offer part-time degrees because they don't want to degrade the prestige of their degree? Employers don't view part-time MBAs in the same light as full-time MBAs, particularly because the acceptance rates at 2-3x higher.

If you want to stay in engineering and are looking to transition into management roles, you should try for Stanford GSB. If you get in, that would open a lot more doors than a degree from Boothe, and would certainly be worth the 2 years.
