Heya folks, So I finally narrowed down my online MBA choices to two schools, and applied and was granted admission to both of them. I'm now trying to figure out which program to enroll in. Here are the basic considerations: -Both programs carry zero out of pocket expenses because they are covered by the GI bill, which covers 100% of tuition to public colleges. -Both programs are AACSB accredited (Temple (Fox) is more highly ranked) -Temple takes about three months longer, which then exhausts three additional months of my GI bill, but I believe this is where my education will stop, so I'm not worried about it. -Temple offered me a $7500 scholarship but it must be divided over all semesters, which means it won't affect me since the GI bill would cover the entire cost either way. -Mason is here in the area, which matches my location on my resume; makes more sense to employers? -Mason is an executive program, Temple is a traditional online MBA -Both programs offer free books; Mason includes an international residency, Temple does not. Temple requires a once-per-week videoconference via webex and an opening residency. -Both programs are more or less a cohort format (which I wanted); Temple's is more flexible, Mason's is not flexible. -Temple's program runs one class at a time, every four weeks. Mason's program is two classes per term, with eight week terms. At this point I'm inclined to go with Mason because of the international residency, more-structured cohort format, and executive-style format (it was created with working adults in mind, whereas it looks like Temple throws a full-time courseload at you, albeit online). Please provide some advice - is Temple a better choice in the long-term, based on better pedigree/ranking? Any other considerations I haven't thought of? I have until the 26th to respond to Mason, and until the 11th of April to respond to Temple. Thanks!
