    I'm a student of this program and I love it. The most important aspect I would say is that I'm still able to work full time since everything is online and I can study/test around my work schedule.

    I'm getting my MBA in Management Information Systems (there's no direct page to it, just the general MBA page for info). Anyone with questions, feel free to fire away and I'll do my best to answer them!

    I’m new as a poster, but have followed the forum for several years. I’m currently working on a second MBA at Tarleton State University (online).
    Tarleton State University offers an online MBA, MS in Management and Leadership (MSML), MS in Human Resource Management, MS in Information Systems, MS in Agriculture and Consumer Resources, Master of Criminal Justice, and a MS in Educational Psychology-Experimental. Tarleton is part of the Texas A&M University system; SACS accredited. The MBA, MSHRM and MSML degrees are also accredited by ACBSP (they're working toward AACSB). They're also pretty sensibly priced.

    M.B.A. Tarleton State University (current)
    M.Ed. Prairie View A&M University
    M.B.A. Taylor University
    CGSOC U.S. Army Command & General Staff College (Diploma)
    B.B.A. Sam Houston State University

    Dear Sagar

    Regarding your posting on the site today . . .

    As the author of a popular book on MBA programs*, I am always interested in learning more about offerings in this field.

    My initial research raises these issues:

    UBI is not mentioned in the 2010 edition of Europa World of Learning, a 3,000-page compendium of the colleges and universities and institutes of the world, published by Routledge, which includes a 20-page section describing dozens of institutions in Belgium, but not UBI.

    A relationship is claimed with Clark University in the US. The administrator I have spoken to at the Clark School of Business is not familiar with UBI, and has no knowledge of a relationship.

    You cite a ranking showing UBI as one of the top 10 programs in Europe . . . but it is not mentioned among the 100+ European business schools described in the Financial Times business school rankings (

    Nor does it appear in the 100+ MBA programs listed in The Economist's "Which MBA" book? (

    The #9 ranking you cite is from 2003. Has that list been updated?

    Thank you for clarifying these matters.

    Cordially, John Bear, Ph.D. ([email protected])

    I think Dr. Bear might have scared someone away...

    Online MBA Program

    North Greenville University (Greer, SC) offers a good and affordable online MBA.
    The tuition is about a grand per class (3 Credit Hours). It is served up in executive format with each class lasting 10 weeks. It is a Christian University that is accredited and accepts Government Tuition and GI-Bill.

    An excellent look for those desiring an MBA in less than 2 years (16-18 months).

    An extensive thread indeed. I hope that my experience might be useful...

    Even though you say that money is not a question i think the best option is a mix of respected and at the same time affordable degree. I'm an online MBA student. And to be honest, i'm totally satisfied with both price and quality.

    Look through the FT rankings. I think it's the most independent source and recommendations of schools given here are subjective I think.
    Personally I have chosen online MBA program because it's cheaper and more flexible.

    I don't see any "vote" by the Financial Times for the "Best Online MBA". Only a LISTING by size of enrollment.

    Online MBA Option

    Has your friend looked into American Public University?

    Here's a link to their MBA program page: APU Degree Program: Master of Business Administration

    You mentioned that your friend almost enrolled at UoP, and I saw another post about Western International University --- APU's pricing is much more affordable, at only $300/credit, for a total of $11,700. Also, it's accredited so that will make the degree worth more.

    I hope this helps!

    another ranking of MBAs

    There is a new ranking for full-time MBAs at The Economist

    Which MBA | The Economist

    Free registration is required.

    The Economist is probably the world's leading business/ economics/ government magazine, so some people at least will take these rankings seriously.
