I am in the process of applying for Part Time MBA and am trying to filter down all possible options. I reside in Ohio so the program needs to be closeby to Ohio.

I am thinking of Kellogg and Ross thus far. Both look like top notch programs. I like the idea of lock step program at Ross. Kellogg will be a weekly flight to Chicago and Ross is a 2.5 hour drive to Ann Arbor every other week. Can anyone chime in on the differences between the programs and the opportunities that they provide post graduation.

Or does it really matter what calibre the program is since its part time. Should I focus instead on one in Ohio itself - Case western, OSU, Cleveland State.

Thank you

How long would you be going part time for? A flight every weekend will add a TON of cost. There will be hotel accommodations too I would imagine.

It really depends on how much time you have to dedicate to the programs. If flying every weekend isn't going to affect you financially, then Kellogg is a great school. And since it's in Chicago, there are plenty of flights from anywhere. However, all the flying can get tiring, especially if it is every weekend. Personally, it sounds like an every-other-weekend MBA would be more conducive to travel (flying or driving), so in that case, Ross wins out. It really doesn't sound like you are too excited about the Ohio schools, so maybe choose one as a backup?

BTW, did you know there are now threads dedicated to part-time MBA? See:

Yes the travel is a major concern both financially and a social/family point of view. I am thinking of applying only to Ross and not to Kellogg for that same reason. The business program must be good in general management and marketing and both are great schools in that regard. Ofcourse kellogg is no 1 in marketing But I am looking to continue working in my current firm due to their retention policy so I am leaving a lot towards ross.
