    I will be attending a graduate school in 2010, however I have not chosen a school yet. I am having a hard time figuring out what is the best choice for an MBA/management. I live in California and money is an obstacle. I have a great job but what to further my education to allow myself to succeed. I have gone crazy with the web search engine manipulations. I read the same thing over and over again. Can anyone inform me of a respected, affordable accredited graduate program for DL?

    hi j - you're going to need to say something REALLY specific about what you mean when you use the term "affordable." what i can afford is not necessarily what you can afford. use hard dollars as markers. there are a million dl mba programs (really only about 200). here's the best list you'll find anywhere.

    if you can let us know what you can actually afford then we can probably help you to pare down the list.

    Here is our official MBA Sticky thread. It is a state-by-state list of (hopefully) all business-related distance master's programs showing school name, web site, degree titles, majors/concentrations, tuition, and accreditations. Sorry it only goes through Tennessee. I'll get on it and see when I can post Texas (and Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming).

    I make $50,000 a year. I have looked at two colleges in particular Un of Phx and Grand Canyon University, I am not certain if they are cosidered"degree mills" or not.

    I currently make $50,000 a year. I aim to progress my education to hold a higher position. What I fear is investing the time and money into an MBA and then have it discredited because its from a "degree mill."

    I don't think you need to fear anyone on this site selling you on a degree mill.

    I'm sorry J but knowing how much you make per year doesn't mean much unless I know your debt structure as well. It doesn't matter, I'm thinking that you're a lot like me, cheaper is better. We have a lot of threads on mba degrees. plus, Jonnie just revamped his dl pages

    There's nothing wrong with U of P but they're not even close to being the cheapest alternative. Spend some time looking through the listings on Jonnies site. There's not an unaccredited school on the (MBA) list.
