I have come across the Masters of Science in Operations Management from the Univ of Arkansas at an eye popping $9k! I am considering some MBA programs (basically looking for the best under $20k), however I am already fairly established in my field and do not know how much an MBA would benefit my situation. Given my desire to be in upper level management in my field, rather than finance, it seems like an appealing option. Anyone have any thoughts on this situation? I have read my threads pertaining to this sort of topic. Now I find a quality MS program from a well known university, I am swaying away from the MBA idea.... Thanks!
