I got my MBA at Penn State Great Valley School of Graduate Professional Studies. I also took several graduate level statistics classes ar PSU-GV. An interesting experience all around.

Are you considering an MBA? Some facts: more than 100,000 MBA's are awarded each year in the USA.
* If you go to Harvard, U Penn/Wharton, or one of the other top-20 "Brand Name" schools, this could be a big help to your career (even an entrance requirement for some positions at certain companies).
* If you are looking to pursue a PhD/teaching career, get your MBA from an accredited school. 2 years ago, PSU-GV was "pending" accreditation. Not the same as accredited. Transfer of course credits (even to PSU-University Park) may not be possible.
* A PSU-GV MBA is not the same and an "Ivy Leauge" MBA. It will not by itself open doors for you, win over potential in-laws, or even get you a raise. It all depends on your personal potential, what you learn, and what you do with it. We know a PSU-University Park MBA who folds and packs T-shirts for a living. And a Temple MBA who repaired electronic equipment.
* Most (I would guess 95% +) of the PSU-GV students are working professionals with employer-paid tuition. My employer paid for it too!
* Could be good for networking if you would like to work for a big Philadelphia area employer. Especially Vanguard or another Malvern-based employer.
* If you are an engineer like me, don't be scared off by the idea of "business" classes. Lots of engineers I have spoken to have expressed this concern. Quantitatively, it is easier than the first year of undergrad. And I learned a lot about writing with all of those papers!
* Also, if you are scared of the GMAT (unlike me) just sign up and then you will be really motivated to study.
Education is never wasted - especially on someone elses dime!

PROS: Education is never wasted - especially on someone elses dime!
