Hi everybody, my name is Roberto, i am a graduate student (Exercise Science, University of Milan) from Italy, currently working in the retail/sales field for a sports goods group.
I would like to boost my career and get professional education in Business, but my work does not allow me to attend lessons, so i was looking for an Online degree taught in English.
I don't have a Business Undergraduate degree and i have few years of work experience, so maybe a MSc would be better than an MBA, what's your opinion?
Also, i looked at the Penn State's online MScFinance and i find it very interesting: anyone has feedbacks on this program/school or has any advice on other ones to give me
Thank you in advance!

So you basically have three options. UI Kelly, Penn State and Georgetown. I am fairly certain that PSU and UI-Kelly both use the same online provider to deliver the courses. Georgetown is unique in this aspect as their provider works with them to provide a very "real classroom" experience. The goal is to replicate being in the classroom as much as possible. I think it is the best online delivery and brand, but you pay for it. The program isn't cheap.

You'll have to decide what the return on investment is worth for you.

Thank you for your suggestion, i looked at the program but couldn't find any mention on costs...
To be true, i am not searching for finance exclusively. Since my background isn't related to Economics and i would like to switch my career to that, i am looking forward to some general business degrees.
What i am looking for is:
-accredited and good ranked schools
-chance to have an experience on taking few courses on campus
-30k or less costs

It is just a overlooking, as i have to focus on GMAT study atm, but i cut the list to some interesting programs, USA and UK too.

- PennState, Master of Finance
- Boston University, MSc in International Marketing Management
- Boston University, MSc in Applied Business Analytics Management
- Purdue University, MSc in Economics
- University of Birmingham, MSc in International Business

The Harvard Extension School offers MLA with concentration in Finance or Management, but even though the school is maybe top 3 worldwide, i'm a little concerned about how much extension school is related to main campus in terms of faculty and credentials
