“I would recommend an online MBA to anyone who does not have the time to commit to a residential type course as it gives you much better flexibility. I chose to study online mainly due to my travel commitments: I spend a large proportion of time on aeroplanes and in hotels for work, so it gives me adequate time to complete both reading and assignments.”
