I am a mid career professional living in Iowa. Though I am looking to move up the career ladder and perhaps look for other job opportunities, I am not too keen on the university providing career change opportunities. I am confused about weather I should prefer a professional/evening MBA at Tippie vs an online MBA program from the likes of Auburn, Nebraska (UNL), Isenberg.

Could someone provide some insights to help me decide.
Thank you.

Ah, so sad. Back in the day Iowa was in the same league as Notre Dame and now it is down to a part-time program.
I am not very keen on online programs; at least get into a hybrid program where you are meeting with colleagues for a week here and there. To improve the networking factor. it seems you would be best off doing an EMBA; these programs meet every 2 weeks, 3 weeks or even monthly.

Some require a GMAT score such as Chicago-Booth and others don't like Kellogg. Important to first consider your goals for getting an MBA; figure out which companies are your targets and find out where they recruit. Think from the perspective of the "buyer."

Sloan Fellows or Stanford Msx are two other elite global programs for mid career professionals like yourself. These are residential but it would very likely be worth it to take a year out to do these. Seriously.

Not sure if a EMBA is a good choice for me, I have 0 management experience.
