    Does anybody have any reviews of the MBA programs at either university?

    MSU-AACSB, 33-36 credit hours, $307 per hour $10-$11k to complete
    ENMU-ACBSP, 30 credit hours, $218 per hour if you take 6 or less credits-$6,500-$7k.

    Since I'm paying for this myself, trying to determine which is the best fit for me. Since I'm in my 40's not sure which is the best choice. Is it worth it to spend the extra money to go with the AACSB certified MSU? Graduation rates? Professor ratings? Online education quality? Rankings? Best fit for full-time working adult, etc... I have not been able to find any rankings or real world reviews to help me with my decision except for the program certifications. Any input would be great. Thank You.

    I don't know anything about MSU but I used to live near the Portales, NM main campus of ENMU. You cannot imagine how different the area is from the usual conception of New Mexico. Flat, dry, agricultural and Baptist. Very Baptist. Very, very mild chile sauce. They even sometimes put TOMATOES in it. No wonder we call the area "Little Texas"!

    But ENMU is a good school and those folks know what they are about. If you do decide to go with them, you will not regret it.

    As a general note, I think they will accept a DETC bachelor's degree.

    The MSU is on my radar as well. I am looking for an AACSB for the lest amount of tuition, as I am coming out of my own pocket.
    U of Louisiana - Monroe has an AACSB MBA program that is 30 credits (with a lot of prereq's which you cant CLEP and DANTES), and will be under 15k. I am CLEPing Principles of Management and Principles of Marketing the first week of January in case I decide on this one, and studying for the GMAT in March.
    The U of Nevada - Reno EMBA program is AACSB, and has a cohort program that has a high grad rate, at 24k. Since I live in NV, it has been on the top of my list as well.
    Also considering U of North Dakota MBA, and could possibly end up in the UNLV EMBA program since it is local.
    I guess I am looking for some sort of name recognition as well, or at least a state one part of a state University system. This is all a tough package to find at a discounted rate. I just do not see the ROI on spending more than 30k for an MBA, with so many of them being turned out by so many schools these days.
    At least I have it more narrowed down than a few months ago...
