I registered as a part-time MBA student and this is my first semester. I did my undergraduate degree at a top 25 instituition in the country as ranked by USNEWS this year.

The first red flag appeared was when I found out that they did not require the GMAT or GRE for admission and practically anyone with a 3.0 undergraduate GPA gets in.

The second red flag was when I was scrolling through the business school website, they said that they were seeking membership in the IACBE. Anyone who has done at least some research into business schools know that AACSB is the only legitimate accreditation body.

However, since my employer was paying for my tuition and it wasn't a hassle to get in, I registered anyway against my gut feeling as I admitably was a little lazy. I very much regret this decision and I'll be taking this as a lesosn learnt in life, you reap what you sow.

This will be my first and last semester at MU! Standards are sorely lacking and I think that some of the Professors aren't even qualified to teach at the graduate level. I'll give you one example of a profile of a faculty member: MBA from an unranked school, no PhD, not even a single day as a manager or supervisor in the industry, most of his academic career spent in tier 4 schools or community colleges. Yet this guy teaches MBA classes! His knowledge or rather lack of knowledge clearly shows during classes.

Classmates are mostly stuck in lowly paid dead-end jobs with no hopes of advancement. The standards of the student body is generally lower than you average school.

My peers from my undergraduate days and family who did MBAs have always talked about the importance of networking and corporate recruitment in an MBA program. Don't hope for any of this here.

I recently took the GMAT and got a score of 710. I porbably will do an MBA in the near future, but full-time and at a tier 1 school. I've come to realize that any MBA not from a tier 1 school is simply not worth the time and money doing.
