    Hi all,

    I am looking for the cheapest B&M State University for MBA program, hopefully in Finance or Accounting concentration that accept DETC BSc for entry. Anyone can help?

    If it's not State University. It has to be cheap and the B&M University need to be well-known.

    Jacksonville State seems to meet your criteria. It is not a big name, but it is a state school and it is AACSB accredited. For 300/ semester hour and only 30 semester hours required, it comes out to around $9,000 for the entire program. I think the accounting concentration is 36 hours though...

    The only thing I am not sure about is whether they accept DETC undergrad, but I would be surprised if they would not...

    Thanks. I have sent an email to the Graduate Office to ask if they would accept DETC for entry to their MBA program.

    Anymore schools???

    Chadron State is in Nebraska - they are around $210/credit hour....not AACSB accredited though...again, not sure about the DETC undergrad...I strongly considered Chadron before deciding on JSU...

    Do you know how long do we need to take to complete the whole MBA program? As they stated Tuitions plus Fee for 2008-2009 is $6013.50.

    The University of North Alabama is reasonably priced and will definitely accept a DETC accredited undergrad degree. Other schools which will accept a DETC undergrad include TUI University, Bellevue University, Salve Regina University, Upper Iowa University, Southwestern College in Kansas, Northcentral University, Liberty University, Ashford University and St. Joseph's College.

    Salve Regina University is a good school but no one would ever call it inexpensive.

    However kozen is looking for entry with a DETC degree and CSUS specifies that:

    The minimum requirements for admission to Graduate Studies are:
    1. An acceptable baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited institution.
    2. A minimum GPA of 2.5 in the last 60 semester units (or 90 quarter units) of coursework.

    I don't know about business schools, but for my MS in chemistry I never paid any tuition. All tuition was waived as part of my teaching assistantship.

    Most graduate distance programs don't have teaching assistantships or any other forms of stipend/tuition waiver. There are a few business schools that work pretty hard to get their full-time students money, but even most full-time business students are paying full freight for their programs since the MBA degree is so popular.

    You got a master's degree in chemistry but you didn't learn about how teaching assistanceships are funded by scientific grants? What school was this? When my wife was getting her PhD she knew exactly what study that was won by what professor allowed her to be in that position.

    Great. I'd be interested in hearing the responses of the schools you contact.

    I have sent a few emails to few of them and so far only Bellevue University and Nova Southeastern University had replied me with a definite ans.BU will accept DETC degree to their MBA program whereas NSU will accept DETC degree with GMAT score. UCLA and CSU didn't give me an ans as they need me to apply for consideration.
    I'm still waiting for the rest.
