Quite many people have contacted me about the Carnegie Mellon part time MBA Program since I started the same in 2007. After having been through the experience for a year now, I can see direct applications of many of the Business School teachings to SOA world.
After all ... SOA & BPM is mostly about Business & IT alignment within an organization and in its partner eco system. So I though that it will be a good idea to write a summary about the CMU MBA program here in this blog.
Program Overview: I have been fortunate that the CMU MBA program is offered at Cisco Campus apart from their West Coast campus ( CMU West - http://west.cmu.edu/ ) in the Moffet Field (you can see signs on 101 north near Moffet Field exit). This is very handy at times when I need to hop out of meetings and join the class within minutes of getting out of office. It is first time at Cisco but the program itself was started in 1996.
It is delivered to corporate campuses in real-time via video-conferencing technologies and CISCO is leading the way with its TelePresence technology which is as real life as it can get. Others in the MBA class are from companies like Lockheed Martin, Goldman Sachs, United Technologies, Oracle, Intel, Applied Materials, Pitney Browns etc.
Tepper MBA program is highly known in Financial & Operations Research area due to its stress on analytical approach to problem solving and decision making in complex and dynamic business environments. CMU Tepper is ranked 3rd in Wall Street Journal Rankings.
Part Time program has same admission/graduation criteria as it exists for Full/Part-time students in CMU Pittsburg Campus. More info at: http://www.tepper.cmu.edu
