Potential MBA Routes - Looking for feedback

Hello - would like some feedback on potential MBA routes. I am 31 years old with 9 years of experience in banking, currently in a front office role for a large bank in Boston. Have my CFA charter and want to complete an MBA while working for career enhancement down the road and to increase my network.

Initially I was only interested in Boston College's part time program at the Carroll School of Management as it is convenient for to Β me to attend and fits into my life well as I can continue to work and attend classes in person to make connections. Side note - I have been accepted with some scholarship $. My concern is the reputation of the school and weaker outcomes vs better known schools.

Also considering Cornell's Johnson executive MBA program in NYC. Downside here is 1.have to commute to NYC every other weekend 2. Not on actual Cornell campus 3. Significant cost (>$200k). Other than this schools such as Georgetown offer a flex program where the MBA is primarily online along with weeklong cohorts.

feedback welcome, thanks.

You haven't really stated what you want the MBA to do for you as far as your career paths. The FT MBA offers the greatest ability to pivot in your career and offers significant networking experience.Β
