I'm glad you asked this question. I am applying to MBA programs next fall, and starting to narrow down the programs I will apply to.
My dilemma: My job has tuition reimbursement program, which is great.
BUT, on the other hand, I am sort of switching tracks so I'm told it's best to apply to full-time programs. I was told Full-time programs will be the best option because you can completely immerse yourself in the program, apply for internships (in my case, brand management) and really just focus on obtaining your degree without any distractions.
So JHB619, Idk what your plans are, but what I'm doing is applying to my dream school (CBS) that only offers full-time and see if they offer any funding, or if I am accepted as a Graduate TA. If not, then my back-up plan is to apply to part-time programs within the city (NYU, Fordham, etc.) so I can work and go to school. But it's interesting to see people's views on FT vs. PT.
Looking forward to reading more posts!
Agree with zoolander about the EMBA programs. They are really geared towards people who are already CEOs, CMOs, etc. Some programs also are only offered on weekends.
