Hey Folks! Some of you may remember me from a recent (and lengthy) discussion on Executive MBA programs. I was initially interested in Rochester Institute of Technology's online EMBA, then after considering several options, decided on VA Tech's local EMBA. Both options would have resulted in some student loan debt. I'm now (finally) finished with my Master's at George Washington University, completed in residence, and it occurred to me that I don't want to commute to class anymore (especially in the DC area). I want to do my MBA online, and without incurring any student loan debt. My plan is to complete an online EMBA program, then go home to work for my brother's construction company in a strategy/supply chain position. I've looked at both the GMU and WSU EMBA programs - they can both be completed online, with no student loan debt, in 18 months. My concern with WSU is that if I later on decide construction management isn't for me and attempt to pivot careers, employers will think it's weird that I have a DC degree, then a Washington state degree back to back (just seems kind of odd on a resume). GMU, on the other hand is right here in the northern VA area, and would match up with my current location. What do you folks think would be the best bet from a national name recognition standpoint? Would the WSU degree raise eyebrows in a job interview?
