Tepper flex time MBA info session and my confusion

I visited Tepper to get familiar with the full time MBA program just about a year ago. You can find my detailed debrief of that visit here: http://thembapath.blogspot.com/2010/03/tepper-school-of-business-campus-visit.html.

Since that visit, I decided (kind of) that I will apply to part-time programs in Pittsburgh and continue working while I pursue my MBA. Tepper is clearly my number one choice and I want to go back to visit the school and talk to some of the flex-time students. Tepper has information sessions for the flex time program just about every month. I am thinking about attending the upcoming session in March to learn some more about the program. Since Tepper is so close to me, I will probably arrange to sit in on one of the flex time classes too.

Now all of that said, I still am thinking about applying to some full-time programs. I absolutely fell in love with Duke when I visited the school and will in all likelihood apply. Some days I just feel confused about what I should do... This is definitely one of those days. I think in one of my future posts, I will list out all of my pros and cons for full-time and part-time MBAs.

That's definitely a hard decision, have you ended up selecting a school yet? My husband went through a similar situation and he ended up choosing a distance learning MBA online program through Thunderbird. He originally wanted to do a full time International Business MBA and move to Europe and go to one of the schools Thunderbird partners with, but in the long run it wasn't the best decision for him. I hope your MBA journey goes well.

Investment in a Business Management program is much more beneficial compared to investment in other academic programs. Perhaps, more so in the current situation of recession. Thanks for sharing a nice information.
