    Re: MBA majoring in Information Systems or Information Sciences?

    there is no such MBA. Universities don't grant MBA in information technology, or MBA in finance, or MBA in marketing. They grant the degree Master in Business Administration, or they offer the MS in finance, MS in marketing, etc. The MBA is a general degree preparing students for management positions in any level of a business, up to CEO. MBA students study accounting, finance, marketing, management, statistics, economics, strategy, policy, and other courses.

    Many MBA programs offer concentrations in these and many other fields, but that amounts to only 2-3 courses in your chosen field in the second year of study. Many students avoid a concentration and take a variety of elective subjects to gain a broader background. By the time you finish the first year you'll be able to decide which concentration interests you.

    know about mba first
    One of the best methods to advance your career is by getting an MBA degree. And why shouldn't you get one? Studying for an MBA is one of the best ways to get at the forefront of your industry because not only does it give you knowledge in a variety of fields like marketing, management, economics, finance, entrepreneurship, and corporate strategy. And apart from this, an MBA will most likely put you at the head of the pack, because of the amazing job placement opportunities that come with having the degree. People with MBAs from good programs are more often than not paid better, put in higher posts and are hired more easily by companies because of the prestige that comes with the degree.
    But not everyone has a similar style when it comes to achieving an MBA, and there are people who may be connected by the desire to have an MBA but have different needs when it comes to their learning styles, schedules, funds and the things they want to specialize in. So making a comparison of the popular kinds of MBA programs is important to determine what program is really meant for you.
    So to what program do you belong? Try to make a comparison of the following to see, which MBA program is best for you:
    * Two-year MBA Program: This is the standard program and the route most people take to get their MBAs. It is most probably the most comprehensive program out of all of them.
    Advantage: Career placement options are diverse, opportunities are the greatest, course loads are customizable, and internships are plentiful.
    Disadvantage: Two years of study are taxing and demanding. You will most likely have to forgo work for the time being.
    * One-Year MBA Program: A more compressed program than its two year counterpart, it also demands your full attention. The class hours are reduced but the quality of learning is not.
    Advantage: Degrees are earned at a very short amount of time. The quality of education is still extremely good and the intense atmosphere usually brings out the best in candidates.
    Disadvantage: It is more grueling and stressful than most other programs that offer the MBA. Maintaining a job is almost impossible and there are almost no breaks in between semesters.
    *Part-Time MBA Program: This is one of the less stressful options for those who want their MBA degree. It usually allows for you to study during weekends and at night while doing other things like working during the day.
    Advantage: The course work is light but substantial. You can usually get to keep your job while taking care of your career. And because the course work is dispersed over a longer period, it is relatively cheaper.
    Disadvantage: It takes about two more years to finish, at which time you may have already risen through the ranks anyway. It also requires that you take classes the whole year, with limited break periods. The internship opportunities are usually non-existent.
