First of all, Imperial has a great reputation and secondly, because there’s the brick and mortar brand behind Imperial. You see a lot of online MBA programmes right now and for me it was very important to have the full backing of a historical university. Thirdly, the Global Online MBA seems to be focussed on the technology platform and delivering a traditional education experience via a new media.
