    Not to be confused with their self-paced MS in Data Science that is the same price, Eastern is now offering an MBA: https://www.eastern.edu/academics/graduate-programs/mba-management

    It uses a similar program design as their MS in Data Science: 7 week accelerated terms. Finish in a year if you take two courses at a time. The major difference is that while a lot of learning material is free online for data science, in the MBA program you will have to buy print textbooks.

    And they have ACBSP accreditation.

    Very nice!

    A lot has been said about the affordability of the Georgia Southwestern MBA on this forum lately, but it turns out that with all fees calculated, this new MBA from Eastern is less expensive by a hair.

    @TeacherBelgium - here's another one to consider if Illinois doesn't work out. Although, if you needed AACSB, this one doesn't meet that criteria.

    Ah shoot, you're right. I didn't read close enough. ACBSP is not AACSB, and isn't one of the Triple Crown.

    TEKMAN Semper Fi!

    I reached out to Eastern and asked a few questions. They responded the same day, and I learned a few things about them.

    - They have six terms per year. Courses are self-paced so you can complete courses before the scheduled end of term. You can also take multiple classes per term.

    - This MBA isn't entirely new. Most of the courses are the same as their previously existing MBA program, with some updates. This may lessen the amount of hiccups and rough edges that we'd expect to see from a brand new program.

    - They will accept transfer credit from regionally accredited schools, even if the school is not also ACBSP accredited.

    - Eastern is a Christian institution, and faith is one of their core values. However, they are very welcoming to people of all backgrounds. The topic of faith may come up at times, but not so frequently nor heavyhandedly that unbelievers should feel out of place. They do not force their beliefs onto students. They allow for open discussions and disagreements whenever matters of ideology come into play.
