    I have been looking at international business schools in Europe which could compliment my distance learning MBA from TAMUC perhaps by earning a minor or at least taking some international business courses. Some school I have looked at include University of Amsterdam (not a distance program) and the Distance Learning MBA at Tanaka Business School (not accredited). I was looking at the Thunderbird website and noticed they have a Post MBA program--a Masters of International Management which is designed to compliment an existing MBA. Does anyone have experience with the Post MBA program at Thunderbird or any experience combining DL programs?

    I am interested in "globalizing" my MBA by taking courses towards a minor at a school outside of the U.S. If this is not possible I can take courses for an MIM at Thunderbird.

    TAMUC offers the possibility to earn a minor in international business by taking courses in the British Studies Program. I am trying to do the same thing but with DL courses :)

    I don't know much Post MBAs outside the US and Canada by DL. Argosy has one Advanced Certificate for MBA graduates

    If you really want an international flavor, I think a on-campus short course would be better than a DL course. Heriot-Watt would be a great option. Either by doing a certificate program, or just a course or two. You can do it 100% DL, or do an on-campus short course, which usually consists of a couple of long weekends.

    Most UK universities have some type of on-campus short course as well.

    BTW, DL MBA at Tanaka Business School is "ACCREDITED".

    The school is "legitimate" (under the Royal Charter) and obtained EQUIS accreditation.

    There are oscational study scheme offered by them for taking a single module in the programme. So you can pick one or two of the modules there and compliment your MBA studies.

    Last year I found out about the DL MBA programs in the U.K. such as Tanaka Business School, Heriot-Watt, Henley, Manchester, and Warwick.

    I saw that Tanaka has a great program and is reasonably priced but was not accredited. However, the school received their EQUIS accreditation in Oct 2006. I am under the impression that you can do the whole MBA program for around 20K euros and an individual course is 2K euros.

    The other U.K. schools Heriot-Watt and Henley have the most students according to the website and are also EQUIS accredited. I am not sure of the price per course.

    I am sure that a minor from any one of these schools would be a good compliment to my MBA program from TAMUC. It is going to be difficult to choose.

    Sorry, it does not look like Heriot-Watt has EQUIS accreditation :(

    Afterall, you have to decide based on what you are interested in. The school matter only comes next to your areas of interest.
