    Try the Bible, oops, I mean Dr. Bear's Guide to Earning Degrees by Distance Learning.

    IMO, here are the top 50 online/DL MBAs going:

    1. Duke
    2. Columbia/Berkeley Dual Exec
    3. Emory
    4. Purdue
    5. Indiana
    6. ASU
    7. Florida
    8. UMass (Amherst)
    9. Syracuse
    10. UT-Dallas

    Second Tier (11-20 in alphabetical order)

    Colorado State
    Florida State
    Oklahoma State
    Penn State (not affiliated with Smeal program)
    Thunderbird (Global MBA)
    Worcester Polytechnic

    Third Tier (21-50 in alphabetical order)

    Arkansas-Little Rock
    California State - DH (AACSB anticip)
    Colorado-Colorado Springs
    Georgia University System
    Missouri-St. Louis
    Missouri State University (formerly SWMSU)
    Mississippi State
    Morehead State (AACSB anticip)
    Portland State
    St. Joes
    St. Thomas (MN)
    Texas University System
    Texas A&M-Commerce
    West Texas A&M
    Western New England
    Wisconsin-Eau Claire


    List is totally my subjective opinion, subject to change.

    I tried to confine it to AACSB-only, though there are a couple programs that are not yet there, but on their way.

    List does not include some that were listed by the other poster, miguelestefan (I don't think some of those programs on that overall helpful list have true online or DL MBAs, though some of them, like Notre Dame--which would surely make the top-5 if I considered it "DL"--can be taken remotely if you live in certain regions. I tried to confine my list to those that can be taken from anywhere in the country, albeit some like Emory would require a lot of money spent on residencies, not to mention tuition).

    List does not include programs that require residency in a particular state (such as Ball State) or corporate participation in DL satellite or video conferencing program (such as Carnegie-Mellon).

    List does not include non-US DL MBAs (but there are some very good ones, such as Henley, Manchester, Warwick, U of London-Imperial)

    Some of these (esp. top 4) have some major residency req., but all can be done without major career interruption. Indiana, ASU, UT-Dallas and UMass have fairly light residencies (or none at all in case of UMass), Columbia Berkeley, Emory, Purdue and Syracuse have hefty res req.

    Have to second what Rivers said, especially as I am a student there, lol...Morehead is fully AACSB accredited. I was accepted to UMASS, U of Hawaii, and Morehead and went with Morehead as I could take more hours in the area of accounting which will help prepare me for the CPA exam, besides, I like the name hehe...

    I swear to you, I checked out the Morehead State site recently and found a link to some document that was discussing how "AACSB was anticipated". And yet, I cannot now find that link. Honest. Obviously, I was looking at an out-of-date document on the Morehead State SOM site, as when I checked the main page just now, I found that they'd recently been granted "initial accreditation", whatever that means. I should've just checked the main B-school page, that would've given me the definitive answer.

    I stand corrected on UMass-Lowell.

    LOL, it was just poking at you, nothing more. In fact, your posts are always looked forward to as your insight and opinion is valued.

    Yes, your correction as well as Gregg's correction on the LLB thread have left me reeling, questioning myself, indecisive, full of fear and loathing (of myself and my own ineptitude, not those who gently have pointed out my ignorance).

    It's a difficult time for me, my foundation rocked as it is. But I will survive...I will survive!
