Hi,
I am looking for an MBA degree for my dad, he's got 25 years of experience in sign and marketing with a BA degree. He wants to do an MBA degree, can anybody recommend any good MBA degree?

Doesn't have to be from very reputed university also has to be quiet cheap.


thanks a lot...really appreciate any help

Well how cheap? All MBAs are more or less expensive.Also why does he want to get an MBA? Would he consider traveling to continental europe?

You could also have a look at the Henley Business School at the University of Reading. They offer a range of MBA programmes, including a flexible learning option at £20,000. The full time option is £33,000.

Cranfield has a full time MBA for £33,000

He should go to a good uni.MBA is all about the connections you get.If anything its the most important degree in terms of where you get it.

At his age an MBA is useless. Corporations won't hire anyone who are around the 50 mark unless they have had previous corporate experience.

.....
A cheap degree from a university with a poor reputation will be a waste of money. At your father's career stage, the only use of an MBA is to prove that he is not just a competent manager, but is a capable strategic manager. No-one will doubt that he would make a reasonable middle manager ie 30-50 k salary bracket. He can get there with a well written CV and a strong interview performance.

If he wants to get a salary over about 60k then he should get on the most reputable MBA he can. Employers will then look at his applications and see a lot of experience plus strong academics, which makes him potentially quite valuable.

No point going for an MBA that isn't from a very reputable university unless you're just doing it for knowledge purposes. If you're doing it in view of gaining employment, then only the best would do.
