#1
Someone posted an interesting alternative on the sister forum, University of Texas-Permian Basin offer an MBA, coming from the BSBA:

* Business Undergraduate, fees are $7,830
* Business Undergraduate get waived 6 credits hours, meaning 30 credits are required
* Accelerated 8 weeks format
* RA and AACSB

That's a great price.

A bit of a correction though: if you didn't get your BA/BS in Business, you pay $9,722.52 because you have to take 2 additional prereq courses (36cr total). If you got your BA/BS in Business, then it's 30cr for $7,830.

Yeah, That's what I was implying by saying, coming from the BSBA, but maybe that wasn't clear.

At first, I thought this would be possible to do under a year, but considering you need to take simultaneously 2 accelerated courses multiple times to get it under a year, it's too big of a risk for me.

AACSB accreditation is almost meaningless to students. There are three exceptions. First, it tends to correlate with school rankings--most (but not all) highly regarded B-schools are also accredited by AACSB.

Second, having a bachelor's from an AACSB-accredited school can make admission to an AACSB-accredited MBA easier. You might avoid some pre-requisite work and the admissions process will look upon you more favorably.

Finally, if one wished to pursue an academic career in this subject, getting one's doctorate from an AACSB-accredited program is the way to go. You'll be hard-pressed to teach at one with a degree from one.

Of course, with all such thing your personal experience might differ. And there are exceptions to just about every norm.

In many cases, ACBSP-accreditation can make admission to an AACSB MBA easier too. For illustration, I found a fairly inexpensive (yet moderately-ranked) AACSB MBA (on-campus only, unfortunately) that would waive the same pre-reqs as long as your school had programmatic business school accreditation.
