And if you are just trying to fill a square, there are some great values out there and quality online programs. I have an MBA from what I consider a podunk school. I learned the same things I would at Stanford but I was not so impressed with my fellow students. If I were trying to impress someone I didn't. But I did satisfy my own curiosity and learned a lot.
I'm new around here but, I know a lot about higher education. This is my insight.
I agree with DoingHomework. It is ALL about networking at the end of the day. He is also correct in that Stanford v. a less expensive, less well-known school doesn't make much of a difference. You might not get the competitive atmosphere you would at Stanford. However, as long as you put in the hard work you will walk away with the same education. There are online MBA programs available, and if accredited, they are also very viable options.
By choosing a less-prestigious or even an online program, you can cut costs and reap the benefits of having an MBA. Keep this in mind when making your decision! Hope this helps!
