    I'm trying to find out about short residency MBA programs. I already know about Duke, but I'm having a hard time finding others. I am looking for the residency to be something one can do from a distance. Every weekend is too much, but once a term for a weekend is acceptable. I don't care about cost, I'm just looking for the most prestigious program.

    Since you're in California I'd recommend Pepperdine University since I believe you have to attend only one weekend for the whole program. It costs almost $80,000. MBA Online Pepperdine

    Also ASU MBA online seems like a good program too with a short residency. This one costs right below $60,000.

    UCLA has a flex MBA program but I believe you have to attend campus quite a bit.

    I am a doctoral student at Bakke Graduate University. They have an M.B.A. program that as I understand it is done online, with regional mentors and a 10 day residency program. I have taken two of the MBA classes, they really were awesome. I took Asset Based Community Development and Appreciative Inquiry, mostly with MBA students. it was pretty cool. Cost of the whole program will be about 15K

    For what the OP is looking for I'd recommend Booth, Fuqua and Kenan-Flagler in that order unless he is interested in marketing then I'd go Fuqua, Booth, Kelly and Kenan-Flagler.. If he lives around San Francisco, Wharton has an EMBA available in that city. The Carey school at Johns Hopkins isn't AACSB accredited so I wouldn't really consider it.

    I might consider Johns Hopkins (Carey) as a viable option in contrast to a number of AACSB accredited B-schools even though Carey is a new program and it will take time to build a reputation and large applicant pool. Add this —among neighboring schools (Maryland), Frostburg State, Morgan State, Salisbury University is AACSB accredited. Which would likely appear as the better brand name on a resume: Johns Hopkins or the other three?

    Would you as well not consider the (non-AACSB) McGill-Desautels MBA?
