Yeah, i am the poster who asked since i am currently studying an MBA from SMU.

Couldn't get into the older institutions for their MBA or even Masters programmes because my GMAT score was lousy.

But imo, as long as your MBA is accredited and is recognized globally, it is definitely worth the money.

Part time MBAs also have their own charm, especially if you are unable to pay for the fees at Harvard/Insead and cannot afford a sabbatical.

And I am the poster who is in part-time mba one of the top 100 universities. I think we all agree, as long as they are accredited, all is fine. Agree, either full time or part time, both has its advantages. For me part time I can work and the salary I save can pay off my MBA fees without having to borrow or loan, while at the same time gaining my years of experience. (But these 2 years life gonna be tough, gg to most social life)

End of the day, for us, the above average people, it's just a piece of paper to most companies, and when got job opening in a higher management role, these stakeholders aren't gonna compare which recognised university we got our MBA from, but rather what job experience and capability you have for the role and whether can adopt and fit into their system/job scope

Yeap, i cannot debate much regarding this. I am assuming i am above average purely because an MBA is not that common compared to the thousands of graduates with Bachelor Degrees these days.

I also echo your sentiments regarding paying off MBA fees by yourself, sure makes you feel good and rich lol.

Inb4 an MBA is worth only what you make out of it. But i think it's extremely useful for anyone who wishes to get into management and/or get a huge pay jump in the corporate world.

Where do the typical SMU summa cum laude finance graduates go to post-graduation? Are they typically IBs and Buy-side roles?

I studied executive MBA for 2 years while working full time paying my own school fees. If you studied part time MBA before, you will sure know that it is even tougher because you need to balance both work and school. When i took up the programme. Everyday i bring 2 laptop to work, one office and one for my mba and i multitask every day for 2 years. After that evening i go lessons, for those days i dont have lessons, i will be doing my assignments after dinner all the way till 2am. Both my weekends are burnt too. Not to mention i still need to complete my master's thesis to graduate. Today, when i see someone willingly to study part time will working, regardless which academic level, i really salute them because they have that determination that not everyone has.
