Part-time MBA options in Switzerland?

Dear Expat Colleagues,
Has anybody researched about pursuing part-time MBA in English in Switzerland? It should be targetted towards working people thusbe conducted during evenings or preferably over weekends. What are the resonably recognized institutions that can provide wider career growth opportunities in the future(atleast in CH). I understand that the kantonal/regional fachhochschules like FHNW & FHZH run such courses but do not know if it is worth pursuing it and if can really make the difference.
FHZH costs about CHF 28,000 for a weekend course that lasts 2 years and runs in English. Don't know much about the grading or selection criteria.
Regards,

Could agree more with the Lob. I just did a course with them and is was pretty good. Looking to start another later this year that is the first one toward the MBA. You can even choose to do it 100% on line....

Hi Take a look at the Robert Kennedy College in Zürich. They have a joint course run over the internet with the University of Wales. In this way you have a reputable qualification from a reputable university and need not worry about going to classes at set times - you choose when you take the lessons. The other thing is the time. You have upto 8 years to complete and I think it runs at around 20K Swiss.

Re: Part-time MBA options in Switzerland?

I was doing a Masters in Australia when I moved to Switzerland and was able to finish it here. It was with Deakin University.

Course is by distance - they send you all the materials and you can post questions online. Exams can be sat in Zurich.
