Part Time MBA /// Duke vs Georgetown vs NYU [#permalink]

New post 27 May 2016, 09:11
Hi everyone,

I am a healthcare consultant at a boutique consulting firm in DC. I already have a post MBA position and salary within the company. I am the only non-MBA employee in healthcare practices therefore my company wants me to pursue a MBA degree. I do not want to quit my job so I only consider evening, weekend or online MBA programs. My company will pay for my degree so money is not an issue for my decision. (3 year commitment)

I have no interest to change my industry but I might be interested in moving to a larger consulting firm in the next 3 to 5 years. I already eliminated 5 school and have 3 schools in my final list;

1. Duke - Cross Continent MBA
a. Advantages: 17 months program, The Health Sector Management (HSM) Certificate, Well-known brand
b. Disadvantages: Mostly online courses, limited networking opportunity

2. NYU Stern - Weekend MBA
a. Advantages: Traditional face to face classes, Networking Opportunities, Well-known brand
b. Disadvantages: 3 years, travelling to NYU every weekend, big gap between part-time and full time program

3. Georgetown - Evening MBA
a. Advantages: Traditional face to face classes, Networking Opportunities, Prestigious brand, Very well-known in DC area, smaller class size
b. Disadvantages: 3 years, evening classes during the weekdays

I visited all the schools and I really liked Georgetown program. I think that smaller class size will provide a better quality education. I also like NYU weekend program because it is very flexible. Work is very unpredictable so having weekend classes is a huge advantage. Duke simply has the best reputation and may able to open doors to a bigger consulting firms in the future.

I know the differences between full time and part time degrees. As mentioned before, I will not change industries. I plan to stay in my current role for another 3 years and learn more about healthcare analytics. Once my degree is completed and my 3 years commitment is over, I want to move to a bigger consulting firm such as PwC, KPMG or Deloitte. I probably will stay in DC area but may have chance to move Washington State. I already been contacted by larger firms but I do not want to move before completing my MBA program. Which program or brand name will open more doors to big consulting firms?
