NYU Stern Part Time or UNC Kenan Flagler Online

I'm seriously considering the two programs mentioned in the title. I work in real estate (VP level) love what I do and have no plans to change career path. FT programs don't make sense for me because it would require leaving my job, and kids graduating from Wharton, Johnson ect. are starting at more jr positions at my current company. I'm essentially looking to check to the box and round out my resume for future career aspirations within my field. I'm concerned about the stigma behind the UNC online program, but I'd be able to knock it out quicker than stern PT and on paper it's the same degree as FT. I'm based in NYC and would appreciate any thoughts/advice.

NYU PT - you'll get to expand your network in NYC. Someone in your shoes probably doesn't need an MBA so if you want to get one to check the box, might as well get something out of it. I'd also consider Columbia EMBA, it's a hybrid and likely more suited for what you're looking for.

Thanks. My concern with an EMBA is that (I believe) it's a different degree and the stigma associated with it vs standard degree. I'm leaning to PT Stern.
