Nigel Pye, Assistant Dean of distance learning MBA at the Warwick Business School says,
As we have discussed earlier, today more students are taking the online route each year. Every single day new technologies are being evolved, allowing business schools to transfer their MBA programs online. But the question is, what does the future hold for MBA education?
“We require students to have four years' management experience. That makes the youngest in their early to mid-twenties but we have them from all age groups, with the typical student in their late twenties.”
Hence the work experience, that you gain while studying your online Level 6 programme, will help you to earn an accredited online MBA degree from recognised schools in future.
Mr. Pye further believes that online business education can certainly prove to be highly beneficial for learners. He adds
“It gives you a brand new skill: that is, managing a virtual team. Students are split into teams for group assignments and the skill of managing a remote team where you may have little if any face to face contact with members is such an important tool in today's business world.”

Today top business schools in UK are backing the online mode of delivery, announcing a new online MBA program on an almost weekly basis.
“The development of the social web is enabling levels of interaction, engagement and collaborative working online that we couldn’t have imagined even five years ago – and we are only at the start of that revolution,”
says Simon Nelson, chief executive of Future Learn, the online course provider, while focusing on the unexpected growth on online MBA.
Online MBA Or Traditional Business Model?
Inspite of growing number of online applicants, questions still remain, whether online MBA courses
offer a credible alternative to the traditional business school model. Are online MBAs as attractive as traditional formats to employers? Can they compete with the level of interactivity and networking opportunities offered by traditional MBA programs? According to the interviews of several MBA students, online MBA tends to be quite different from traditional one.

Mark Taylor, the dean of Warwick Business School, told the Financial Times,
“We see no evidence that recruiters discriminate between the way in which someone has studied their MBA. In fact, the feedback from employers is that our distance learning students are particularly impressive; because they are still in the workplace, will often have high levels of commercial awareness of the challenges and issues potentially facing the sectors involved and are able to utilise up-to-date and applied experience.”
Taylor goes on to say that employers value the focus and determination exhibited by online MBA students as they balance work, school, and family.
Seoposengwe Galeeme from Botswana, who completed an online business programme from Leeds Metropolitan University (now Leeds Beckett University), says that online MBA programmes offer
“a flexible schedule that fits nicely with my work and family life; and despite the birth of my daughter I haven't missed a class. I am already seeing the benefits of the course by applying what I've learnt in my workplace and I've seen big improvements in my business performance.”
