Exploring the Value of MBA Degrees: Students' Experiences in Full-Time, Part-Time, and Executive MBA Programs
Bruce, Grady D.
Journal of Education for Business, v85 n1 p38-44 2010
Critics of the overall value of the MBA have not systematically considered the attitudes of MBA students about the value of their degree. The author used data from a large sample of graduates (N = 16,268) to do so, and to explore predictors of overall degree value. The author developed separate regression models for full-time, part-time, and executive MBA programs. The predictor variables are multi-item scales that measure (a) satisfaction with the MBA degree, and (b) satisfaction with the school or program. Each scale contributes significantly to the prediction of overall value, and there is little difference in their relative importance in the regression models. (Contains 6 tables and 1 note.)
