    Hello, and welcome!

    What is your education background, location, and are you active military or a veteran? By accreditation, do you mean NA, RA, or programmatic (AACSB, ACBSP, etc.)?

    The answers to those questions will be a good starting point for suggestions.

    Thanks Bruce

    Education background

    I did my education from India “Bachelor of arts” (subject: Sociology n Hindi (language)
    Master of Arts (subject: Hindi Language) n 1 year computer diploma and then moved to Canada. I worked for 5 years for a small IT Company as IT admin/ SharePoint support . Now moved to New Jersey to stay with family.

    For me accreditation mean to recognize by uscis / U.S. Department of Education ( get a TN visa) I had a job offer as SharePoint administration here in New Jersey but visa thing didn’t work out . So I decided to go for future education.


    Still Learning all this new term NA, RA, or programmatic (AACSB, ACBSP, etc.)?


    Thanks

    I completed my MBA at WGU, it was relatively quick very cost effective and did result in promotion at work ( not by itself of course).
    Any specific questions?

    I have done Bachelor in Sociology and have 5 years IT experience. Thinking MBA will boost my career.
    I have no experience of self-paced courses study , and no background of business studies, so little worry.
    Do u think 15-20 hours is enough for study? How long u took to finish it .

    Over in the Business and MBA Degrees sub-forum, there is a sticky thread called the Best MBA, which is a state by state listing of some 420 online MBA degrees withh school name, website, degree titkles, majors/concentrations, hourly tuitiion, hours to degree, total program tuition, and accreditations. The MBA Stick was created in 2008, so the tuition info is a bit dated, but the least expensive in 2008 will probablyt also be the least expensive in 2016 and the most expensive in 2008 will probably be the most expensive in 2016.
