wow..this thread is putting more valuable insights..thanks to all of you who are sharing this information..

Yes..I understand about ROI and all..thats why I want to do online..no way I could do fulltime.

But my biggest challenge is dedicating time..As of now, by the time we finish our dinner and put kids to sleep, it will be anywhere between 8:30PM to 9:00PM..(Sometimes my 3.5 year old son wakes up and tells me that he wants to become Spider Man..so those days will take us into 10PM range)

Now by the time, kids go to bed, I am totally exhausted and I have to keep in mind the work pressure (sometimes I may have to work late)..so I am little bit confused on how to balance.

But I certainly want to do MBA, because I want to have an MBA degree, I believe it will help me grow to next level in my job and may be help me get a better job or If I move to India then I hope an American MBA from a reputed university will fetch me a mid/senior level position (I am tired of being a tech lead/senior developer in US where all of my Juniors who joined my team as ELTP when I was project lead in India have become Deliver managers etc..dont mean to take their credit away..but staying on H1B here as put a roadblock on my career..not eveyr h1b gets an opportunity to grow..tell me about it)

so, coming back, so far, I heard from Phani about KD and It looks like a good place for Online..

The other one I was thinking about is WP Carey from Arizona state..it is also considered good..I am in FLorida and Warrington college is ranked higher but I heard being a southern college, not many recognize this one.


Also, what about PennState World Campus or Univ. of Massachusets at Lowell/Amherst.

I am just finishing up with my masters in a STEM discipline. I have two kids of my own and my wife works full time. One child is 1 year old. Believe me it just works out fine. But you will not have a "life" for the next two years, so get used to it. Weekends will be just work for two years. You will absolutely need to have your wifes support. But in the end it is very satisfying. And while you may not realize it , it sets a a great example for your child, who thinks studying is cool coz dad does it.

My 2 cents... If you need to switch careers say from IT to any other do from a Top 10 in campus school.

Part time MBA is good if you want to move up your own career(say IT). Do something thats AACSB accredited and is reasonably ranked. Business week has a specific ranking for Parttime MBA.

Any excess payment for a non ranked Part-time MBA over 50K is cost of lost opportunity. The money could be better invested somewhere else.

My View

I started doing online MBA, the meterial was great and the course required real effort and i liked the program but i was not able to interact with people or learn from there experiences, we had group work but it was mostly to the point. I thought i can learn this stuff on my own with out paying huge amount of money.

Then after my first semister with online MBA, i did not feel like continuing, so i stated looking for part time programs as i need to continue with my job and applied for MEM (Masters in Engeenring Management) program in Northwestern, it is reasonable priced and covered most of the objectives i had in mind. Most of the professors are shared between Kellogg College and McCormick College which are highly ranked, so the quality of education is really great, I love this program and I really find a huge difference between online and part time.

Final Thought, I would any day do a on camps program either part time/full time but not a online program in Management, For technical stuff, online is a great alternative this is save money and time.

Good luck.

Unfortunately one needs to have a GC or be a USC in order to be eliglible for FAFSA or any federal financial aid.

Default Pros & Cons

Hi,

I am planning to start my Online MBA from Univ of Nebraska (UNL). This is AACSB certified.
Also the price point is really sweet. 17K only + Books. Business Week placed it 4th overall part time.
The Best Part-Time Business Schools: University of Nebraska - BusinessWeek
-That is what got me interested in the first place.
Plus it is not a "** State University" but a "University of **" which means it should have better profs.

Anyhow anyone has any pros and cons to share about this one?

n'
Joy

I just found that Aspen University is offering online MBA at $3600 (end to end) + books.
The univ is accredited by DTE but not sure about its market value.

I am thinking about low cost MBA and the options (apart from newly discovered super low cost Aspen) are --
University of South Dakota (USD) (18 K)
&
University of Massachusetts (UMass) (30 K)

Does any one know if USD has a decent market value ?
