At first, I was thinking of taking traditional courses to satisfy prerequisites – with instructors and in the classroom. I was apprehensive to an online alternative to traditional courses. In fact, the MBA iQ made me take more comfortable and confident with pursuing an online MBA. I thought I wanted a classroom MBA, and doing the MBA iQ, I was open to the idea of an online MBA. It gave me the confidence.
I see the MBA iQ and GMAT as separate things, but both are necessary for the MBA. The MBA iQ gave me a preview of what to expect. It lined up very well with the MBA curriculum. I had a much more enjoyable time studying for the MBA iQ than the GMAT because it was relevant to my job and the MBA.
I have a colleague in another MBA program who is currently taking 18-hours of MBA prerequisites, most of which are the same courses in the MBA iQ. I was able to complete those same prerequisites in far less time, at a fraction of the cost and at my own pace.
I thought I'd have to start the MBA blind since the GMAT was waived for me. The MBA IQ gave me the confidence in starting the MBA. Also, I was able to apply the MBA IQ to my job right now as the learnings were very tangible. I gained the language of business.
I now feel more comfortable tackling the more advanced topics in the MBA; it even prepped me to be ready into the class environment, given that I was out of the classroom environment for a few years. I’m ready for the advanced version of the topics covered in the MBA iQ.
