"Does anyone here has experience or advice on the programs or online MBA in general ?"
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Yes, I am attending Univ. of Florida's Internet MBA. I would recommend visiting their website and attending an information session. I did both.
Their Internet program is top notch. The staff is highly professional and has been working diligently to make a name for UF's MBA program.
UF's MBA program has been climbing consistently in their rankings (in all categories). They've even opened a brand new state-of-the-art building a couple years ago.
The Internet program is among the top in the world with many #1 rankings.

UF's Internet MBA program does require visits to campus every 4 months roughly. The main purpose is for networking because you get to see everyone in your class and mix with other MBA cohorts. Don't worry about missing out on networking. There are additional events, if you want to make the journey, or are local. The Internet MBA students can also participate in the international program which takes you overseas for almost two weeks, but it's not mandatory. Additionally, you do get to work in small groups throughout the entire program. These groups gives you direct interaction which has been awesome for getting to know people.

I can also compare the Internet program to the Professional program. I actually have a friend who is doing the professional program at Univ of Florida, which requires a monthly visit. From general discussion, the main difference between the programs seems to be the way lectures are delivered (in-person vs online). The workload seems to be the same, approximately 15-20 hrs. Both programs are traditional in the sense that you stick with the same ~60 people for 2 years. And in both programs, you do get know many people on a deep level. Plus, the UF network is pretty large.

By the way, this Internet program is no "degree mill." I know some people at work doing the "Keller's and Phoenix's" of the world. They mix & match courses and hardly ever see the same people across courses. I talk to them about accounting or economics and their depth of knowledge is just not the same (and they are 4 semesters ahead!?!?).

So, check out the website. I would certainly recommend the program, if you can't tell already. Go Gators!

I received a laptop and an iPad 2. I suppose "free" is relative. :)
But for what you pay, UF's Internet MBA is a great value.
