    I am trying to decide between these two programs and I was wondering if anybody here had an oppinion or experience with either. Also, Texas A&M is at Commerce, which I do not know if my degree will simply say Texas A&M or Texas A&M Commerce. Anybody know? I live in Georgia and do not plan on living outside of the south, so both schools should be well recognized.

    Go to MSU. The A&M degree won't be from the highly regarded Mays Business School and the degree will specify Commerce.
    Have you looked into Auburn's or Ole Miss' distance MBA programs? They are both relatively inexpensive with good business schools.

    I agree with AUTiger00, Mississippi State would categorically trump TAMU-Commerce in name recognition. Both (MSU and TAMU-Commerce) can be completed in as little as 30-credit hours and are AACSB accredited, so go with MSU; not even close …

    And yes, a degree from TAMU-Commerce will read just that; and why wouldn’t it?

    That's what I was thinking. Maybe if the degree just said Texas A&M it would be on close terms, but knowing that it will not is a HUGE deal.

    It's not what is on the degree that matters, it's what is written on the transcript. Would you not be forth coming about where the degree came from if you attended TAMU-Commerce? I've gotten into heated discussions on this board about this topic before. Simply claiming TAMU and not clarifying is more than a bit misleading, especially when you consider that the MBA program through the Mays School of Business at TAMU-College Station is a top-50 program at a Tier 1 university and TAMU-Commerce is neither a tier 1 school or a ranked MBA program.
