So, I'll continue my theme of asking what may be a 'dumb question' from this evening. What is it that you are exactly looking for here? Before worrying about courses -- I'd spend some more time thinking about whether or not you want to pursue an MBA or an MIS. Those are QUITE different.

Let me know if I am missing something.

If you are a non-US citizen seeking fellowship money here you likely won't find it. Student sponsorship comes from donations from alumni and corporations and often are restricted to US citizens only. Plus there is simply far less fellowship funding at the MBA level since most students have been working for 3-5 years and have saved enough money for grad school. Also, MBA students get an internship between years one and two where they make a prorated $100K per year on average plus they typically get a signing bonus which can help pay for school. For all these reasons, scholarships are hard to get at the MBA level and even harder for international students. The MS is indeed cheaper. If you were to go PhD route, you would receive a tuition waiver and an annual stipend to live on of around $30K depending on the program. PhD is about the only way to go to school for free unless you are the top of the top in the applicant pool.
