Which MBA format is better? Full Time MBA vs. Part Time MBA vs. Online MBA
Being in

a business school it has become more clear to me on what MBA offers to an average student. Masters in Business Administration (MBA) offers two important things: Academic education and Networking. Two primary reasons why one would pursue an MBA are career change and career augmentation. However there are mainly three types of program to chose that you want to pursue: Full time MBA, Part time MBA, and Online MBA.And often a valid question is asked â... which MBA is right for me? Full Time or Part Time or Online.

Well this question needs to be answered from different perspective. Letâ..s take a closer look: Each one of the program types (FT, PT & ON) puts different weights on the amount of each part (education and networking) of the MBA so your decision should be based on which part you think will be more important. Which one you should find more important should be based on the reason you chose an MBA.

A full-time MBA program will probably give you equal parts education and networking. A part-time MBA program will give you more education than networking â... probably a 65%/35% split in favor of education. An online MBA program will give you even more education than networking than the part-time program â... probably a 30%/70% split.

According to me, Full-time programs always offer â..betterâ. than part-time and online programs simply because full-time means youâ..re 100% immersed in the action. If you want to change your career, you want as much networking as you can get. If you want to augment your career or in other words just go up the ladder without disrupting your career, youâ..ll want as much education as you can and as little networking as youâ..ll need (your work is your network in this case). In fact, if education is all you want, save yourself the cash and enroll in the Personal MBA.

Ultimately, it comes down to who you know (networking) and how well you perform when the opportunity is presented to you. All the education in the world â... even from higher ranked schools (be it from Harvard or Stanford) wonâ..t help you if you donâ..t know your stuff â... the MBA is not a ticket to free lunch. Remember thereâ..s no free lunch in the world! In fact, a lot of very rich and successful businessmen and women have no more than a high school diploma.

These are just my views. Please feel free to share yours!

A part time MBA from a university abroad will be a better choice as you will have a globally recognized degree. Some education destinations abroad are not that expensive like Malaysia, New Zealand, etc but the degree is globally recognized.

The MBA is a postgraduate degree that is awarded to students who have mastered the study of business. Online MBA programs develop your overall personality and prepare yourself for the corporate challenges.

Online programs are still a new method of delivery for an MBA degree, so there is still some skepticism as to whether or not an online degree is the "same" as a one earned by sitting in a classroom. So, in my opinion, nothing can beat the Regular MBA.

MBA has become one of the most treaded paths of the students as well as the working professionals as it reaps great fruit in terms of career. In present scenario, this golden degree is in great demand in the job market.The basic difference between a Regular MBA and a Distance Learning MBA is that of the classroom study. There are proper classes in a Regular MBA, whereas in Distance Learning MBA there is no compulsion for classroom study. Even a student from a far flung area can go for Distance MBA offered by prestigious B-schools.
But it is always preferable to opt for the Regular program, unless and until you are a working professional.

I think functional(work) experience is mother of all qualifications ,having said that I think for working professionals "time is always at a premium "There fore Executive MBA is most ideal for aspirants wanting to hone MBA skills .However if people have enough time & have just finished their degree or so then a regular MBA is correct route.But all said and done experience is key to for successful career in Management.Whether it is part time or full time or Virtual program ,one must'nt give up on the experience part which is invaluable .

Yes Full time MBA is better than Part time.. But if you are working professional then Part time MBA is also helpful for you. It will effect same as full time if you have experience.
