part time mba...resources, forums?

Could you folks pl share info about part-time mba and how to go about it ? (I am in bay area and haven't even started gmat prep..have ms in cs )

background: I have been doing programmer/designer/lead types of jobs for the past eight years and I am not particularly excited about continuuing this for ten/twenty years. I have fairly good idea about software industry, trends, how to ship a product etc and I like to spend my energy/time into bringing ideas to fruition rather than worry about coding. Yes, This is as idealistic as CS guy assuming all the stuff that he learnt is going to be used in industry.

But going for a solid local mba (Haas etc) seems to kick-start.. Yes, I am not planning to end up as a manager for a bunch of java programmers...

as far as MBA programs go, HAAS is ok. Less bullshit than Harvard and Stanford...lots of inroads into engineering and software companies. good connections to asia, if you are into the international thing.

I'd take a kaplan's GMAT training course. they really do improve your score.  there's that new center downtown berzerkley...

If you need to ask this forum about MBA resources then you probably are not ready for grad school. Check http://www.google.com
