    If money is no issue, which RA MBA programs would, you choose?
    The reason I am asking is that I have a friend in Dubai that wants to do pursue a MBA degree. Believe it or not she almost signed up with UoP (Dubai campus). I told her for the money she was going to spend; maybe she should look into the Harvard or other programs. She wants a school with a great reputation.
    I am not in the business area, so any suggestion is welcomed.

    How about Duke University's Executive MBA ?

    Money is NO object? Distance learning? US programs?

    Duke, Indiana, Syracuse, Arizona State, Penn State, Thunderbird and UMASS come to mind. Thunderbird is the #1 international business school. All but UMASS require some residency.

    These programs range from around $25,000 and up (much higher). I think UMASS is a good option because it is the lowest cost program, but still reputable and is 100% online.

    Rather than posting several links, the links can be found here.

    There are hundreds of MBA programs out there. As far as the most prestigious online programs, these are the ones that come to mind.

    The program looks great, but is geared towards professionals with experience. I am afraid that she does not qualify.
    But thanks for the reply.

    Good call, for some reason UF slipped my mind. They have a 1 year (16-month) MBA program. They are very well respected and have a proposed DL DBA in the works.

    Agreed. And I'd add Warwick and Henley (tcmak already got to Imperial).

    I appreciate everyone's feedback.
  14. I have been very satisfied with Indiana's program. I'm taking it at half speed so I'm in year 3 of a 2 year degree plan...but the end is in sight. There is no grade inflation so you need to work at it (unlike many MBA-lite programs), and it's AACSB. There are 2 residencies but it's very flexible otherwise and the Kelley Direct staff have been fantastic.

    You know, I've decided that I answered this question the wrong way. Not that I'm retracting my opinion about Duke. They're a great school, and very prestigious, too. What I did wrong was that I spoon-fed you by telling you which is the best school. Instead, I've decided to pass on some info on DL MBA programs and let you, the reader(s) decide which is the best school for you.
