Needing advice on whether I should do part-time or full-time MBA.

Two years ago, I was in sales operations at a well-known but small and private CPG company (i.e., non-feeder company and doesn't actively recruit MBA's). My goal was to transition to a marketing role at a large CPG company, so I applied to top 15 programs and either got stuck on the waitlist then dinged or dinged outright.

Since then I actually managed to transition to a marketing role at another well-known but small and private CPG company (i.e., non-bschool feeder and doesn't recruit MBA's) and most recently joined a marketing rotational program at a gold plated CPG firm (i.e., Fortune 500, actively recruits MBA's, feeder to top schools). Mostly everyone in my department has an MBA from one of the top schools (M7, Tuck, Fuqua, Ross).

I still want to get my MBA because I think it still holds long-term value, but should I go part-time or full-time? I think my company would be willing to sponsor for part-time, but I doubt for full-time. Personally, I'm leaning towards full-time for the superior network, leadership development oppourtinies, global immersion through classroom experience or excursions, and scholarships. Either way, I would want to return to my current company doing exactly what I'm doing now and would only be re-applying to full-time top 15 programs or their part-time offerings, if applicable.

Thanks!

You will always get a more robust experience through a FT program. With your career goals a PTMBA would also probably work for you as well. It seems the value you are looking for lives moreso in a FTMBA so I would go that route and consider select relevant PT programs as well that would be near your job.
