Question

Some Questions around Switzerland's Universities of Applied Sciences in relation to MBA and doctoral studies: What are the conditions as a FH-Business Admin-Student from Switzerland (Dipl. Betriebsökonom FH / Fachhochschule-Betriebsökonomie) concerning MBA? Is there a way to complete DBA/Ph.D.-Studies with such an university degree? Is there a difference between an Exec. Master Degree and an "ordinary" MBA (in question of Degree and touchingly DBA-terms of Admission)?
Dear Madams and Sirs, Some Questions around Switzerland's Universities of Applied Sciences in relation to MBA and doctoral studies:
What are the conditions as a FH-Business Admin-Student from Switzerland (Dipl. Betriebsökonom FH / Fachhochschule-Betriebsökonomie) concerning MBA?

Is there a way to complete DBA/Ph.D.-Studies with such an university degree?
Is there a difference between an Exec. Master Degree and an "ordinary" MBA (in question of Degree and touchingly DBA-terms of Admission)?

Answer from Cranfield:

Thank you for your enquiry. I regret that the Dipl. Betriebsökonom FH / Fachhochschule-Betriebsökonomie is not regarded as equivalent to a UK bachelor's degree, and would not, therefore, be an acceptable qualification for the MBA, DBA or PhD programmes at Cranfield

To be considered for the MBA you will need five or six years' work experience after qualifying, and a GMAT score of 600 or more to compensate for the lack of an acceptable academic qualification.

There is no difference between the MBA and the Executive MBA at Cranfield in terms of content or standards of entry. The only difference is in the method of delivery - our Executive MBA programmes are delivered part-time over two years.

For the DBA programme, candidates need either an MBA or a masters programme in a business related area.

Answer London Business School:

Dear Martin and Verena,

The full-time MBA Admissions office look at a variety of aspects before admitting a student and one of these is work experience. Your degree would be recognised by the London Business School, but if you are still studying, then you may not have the level of work experience that we require. We require a minimum of three years post-graduate work experience, however admission may be granted to candidates with less than three years work experience, who present superior academic credentials and truly outstanding evidence of leadership through professional and personal experiences.

The average age is 29 and average work experience is 5-6 years. (Participants from some countries usually have less work experience than the average since their undergraduate study may be longer than others and/or national service has meant they started work later than others). The age range is 24-35. A key feature of the MBA is the stimulating and varied international participant mix. Each year an average of 15-20% are from the UK. The remaining 80-85% is made up with participants typically from over 60 different countries. Most years 20-25% of our participants are women. The most recent class of MBA2004 is 28% female.

Many of our participants come to London Business School with their partners and family.

With regards to the difference between the MBA and EMBA programmes, please refer to our website www.london.edu and click on both the MBA and EMBA site. To give you a quick idea, the EMBA is the part-time MBA programme over 2 years and the MBA is full-time over 21 months. During the EMBA students only study Fridays and Saturdays every other week, so if their employer is flexible, they can continue to work during their degree.

I hope this answers your questions

Regards
Elisia
