An MBA is a diploma intended for executives and people already working who wish to open up to the international world.
MBA : definition
However, not all MBA candidates can, or will, take two years away from their professional activity.
For them, there is the remote MBA:
This training can be followed thanks to multimedia, without having to travel: an innovative teaching method combining residential modules and e-learning.
Two thirds of the courses are taken at a distance. The rest consists of studies followed in different European cities.
Benefits of this MBA
Choosing a remote MBA has its advantages :
Remote MBAs are less expensive.
The class size is reduced to a maximum of 20 students per class.
Just like a traditional training, the distance MBA is done over 2 years.
The candidate can keep his professional activity.
The schedules are flexible and the student works at his own pace.
Disadvantages of Remote MBA
Remote MBA does not only have advantages:
There is little or no exchange with other students and teachers.
The dropout rate is very high.
Networking of services is limited and student support is not personalised.
Unlike Part Time MBAs, remote MBAs are only very rarely accredited by AMBA, EQUIS or AACSB.
Which remote MBA to choose?
Even for a distance MBA it is necessary to choose a good establishment. There are several points to check and compare:
accreditation of French and foreign institutions;
the dates and duration of the training;
programs and internships;
the possibility of academic support and/or sponsors;
the use of self-study notebooks;
the specific functioning of distance education (online services made available such as libraries, conferences, forums, synchronized courses);
prerequisites for admission: references, experience, diplomas.
