Episode 220: Taking a Serious Look at the Online MBA

Most of our regular listeners know our podcast tends to devote 99% of recorded time to traditional, full-time, in-person MBA offerings, but several factors have combined to merit some serious discussion of online offerings.

Those factors are:

  1. Technology
  2. The caliber of institutions increasingly active in this space
  3. The pandemic’s ‘necessity is the mother of invention’ doctrine

Special guest Dr. Carolyn Goerner joins host Graham Richmond to discuss the online MBA landscape. Dr. Goerner, the Aldi, Inc. Distinguished I-Core Clinical Professor at Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business in Bloomington, Indiana, teaches in the #1 online MBA program in America.
