Default MBA programs in DFW

I am contemplating going back to school for my masters. Does anyone have experience getting an MBA in DFW? I will need to do night or online classes since I will still be working. I looked into TCU but the cost is more than my company pays for. I am thinking either UTA or UNT. Let me know if you have any advice.

i'm looking to do the same and concluded for myself that it really depends on 1) what type of MBA experience you want and 2) how far are you away from the evening program.

if you just want the degree, online is the best way to go. there are plenty of online programs. my sister is 2 classes away from a degree from Northeastern - AACSB accredited with no GMAT required. UTA is dropping their online program.

IMO, getting an MBA is more than just the paper and learning the stuff. it's also about meeting people in your class and developing your network. UTA has a cohort program where classes start in the evening, but it's all the way in Frisco. If you're in FTW, then it's out of the way. UTD has a better evening program, but that's an even further drive.

it's really a long term investment and sticks with you for the rest of your career, so choose wisely.

I live in North Fort Worth so Dallas probably isn't an option. The UTA program in Fort Worth is Monday/Saturday. I am not looking forward to losing Saturday mornings :/. I found that UNT has an online program for an MBA in strategic management or finance.

But like you said I would probably prefer going to an actual class. Also would employers look at an online MBA differently?

i don't think most employers will look at an online MBA differently, but they might ask you why you decided on an online program. my current boss asked me the online vs. in-class question during my initial interview. obviously if I said, "online, because it's convenient" then that wouldn't be a good answer, so just be prepared to answer that if you go the online route.

that's the advantage of going to an actual class, tho. you wouldn't have to worry about the credibility of the degree because you can meet people in your class that could get you hired 10 years from now in a better job and vouch for your credibility as a person.
