The program offers a very diverse student body with students participating from all over the World. With such a large amount of group work associated with this program, I gained a great deal of insight into business practice in other markets and cultures. This has element of the program has had a very positive impact on my current role in international business.
I would have liked a little more interaction with the full-time program. And while I could not have attended class in person, I do think that element adds value to the MBA experience.
The flexibility of the program allowed me to successfully leverage school and family life.
There could be more interaction with other students in virtual chats and group projects. The teachers could have more recorded lectures rather than simply posting power points in some classes. The assignments could also challenge the students a bit more. Last, I find that the professors do not get to know you very well in this on-line format.
I see no other program in the Northeast that can deliver all of the core elements of a traditional MBA in a highly flexible (online), open and collaborative environment, with an impressive mix of engaged and highly experienced professionals, as well as UMass and I paid HALF of what I would have at other schools. For the working professional it's a no-brainer to me. Opting out of the workplace for two years is a waste now that online programs have leveled the playing field, that is unless the networking aspect is an overwhelming draw for the student, which is overrated in my opinion. I could not be happier with the quality equation of my UMass MBA.
I think offering online activities, such as webinars with invited guests from business would have been cool. Having the opportunity to connect with students in an international location via the web would have been good in lieu of having an in-person international experience.
The program is very user friendly. It allows you to not only learn the basics -- but to apply the educational material on the job.
Instead of the program being too generic, there should be specializations catered to students and the industries they represent.
The fact that the entire program can be done online creates more flexibility than other programs. All of the people in my classes were successful people with busy lives. This program enables professionals from around the world -- from medical professionals to engineers to soldiers -- to be part of an experience that normally would not be in their reach, either due to time or location.
The school should make PT folks full-class citizens equivalent to the full-time MBA folks. Offer parity with events, and mixers with FT folks. We can benefit from each other. (FT folks can network with us for jobs.)
