Look over here for some other suggestions on the Online MBA: online-mba-rankings-121641.html

one that jumps out is the UNC@MBA - the latest addition to the online mba industry and is actually a top 20 school with a name that will be recognized (at least in the US).

P.S. I never heard about any of the other schools you mentioned.

Sure... there is always the question of ROI and cost.
It is hard to estimate really but you also have to ask yourself about the ROI of \$30K MBA. Is there a a reason it is 30% of the cost of another program?

Definitely something to do research on and evaluate how it fits into your career goals.

Oklahoma State and Colorado State don't even require a GMAT. They are garbage programs to be totally honest, might as well attend University of Phoenix. Sure there are brick and mortar schools that go along with the online program but the MBAs, especially online MBAs, at these schools are just diploma printing factories. I live in Colorado so that is how I know that program and being in the military I see lots of people taking online MBAs and OSU is a popular one because it is so easy. Pay your tuition, get a diploma. You probably won't learn anything and it will be meaningless on your resume. Now if your current employer doesn't care that the degree is a joke and all they care about is you check the box "Has an MBA" for promotion then the programs you listed are probably the path of least resistance.

Honestly though, the only online MBA I would consider is the UNC program. As bb said, you have to wonder about quality when you go for the cheapest option available. Just because you aren't planning a career change doesn't guarantee you will always be working for your current employer. You only get 1 chance at an MBA, if you get a crappy one and then for whatever reason need to find a new job you've lost that possible network and it won't mean anything on your resume.

Online MBAs aren't usually worth it. They get you nothing other than a worthless rubber stamp. If you want that knowledge, then better to do the coursework yourself and just gain the knowledge and use it. If you want a diploma for what a diploma is worth (i.e. the network, experience, career center that comes from a brick and mortar school), then it will likely only be worth it from a "real" MBA (even if you were to do part-time.

It may seem expensive to pay 60-100K for two years, but when the payback is doubling your salary, and the payback for a 30K online MBA is nothing at all, then, well...

In general, I'm not too excited about online MBAs. It will be much easier to get into the online mba. The standards for admission will be lower and your Gmat will not matter as much. However, before going this route, be sure the online mba is what you need in your career. Figure out how it will help you versus a traditional mba.
