I recently retired and want to get back into pursuing higher education.
I am happily married and live in Los Angeles. So, I am somewhat geographically constrained concerning my choice of MBA programs to attend.
I have now seriously considered online MBA programs, but I'm worried about the quality and perception and other potential risks of online degrees.
Another obstacle I face is that my employer will likely say that I was not a "team player" or a "good leader" for their organization. Since MBA programs require so much teamwork and group projects and leadership skills, I don't think I am a good fit for traditional programs, hence the online programs would be better suited for me.
Can anyone provide some general comments about going the online MBA route? I wish to become an Assistant Professor of Economics and Accounting. So, I want to know how an online MBA will impact future employment in academia.
