Absolutely. A degree without accreditation from AACSB, AMBA, or EQUIS is not very valuable, no matter where you are. Some cases can be made for regional schools that don't have one of these accreditations, but this is pretty rare.

mr. duncan,

just wanted to know if doing an MBA from a university which doesn't have an accreditation have any value as such?

most of the universities that have an accreditation are pretty expensive....what should people who cant afford it do?

Well, there are a few options. Generally, investing in education is the best investment anyone can make. It's an investment that pays back for your whole life. Most graduates from top MBA programmes more than double their wages.

1] I guess most students have to borrow. Many schools have information about loans.

2] Some schools have partial scholarships. They tend to go to be the students who have the highest ability.

3] If loans, savings and scholarships don't work, then there are some good alternatives: masters degrees which are not MBAs. Here are some good ones: http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolrankings/masters-in-management-2012 four or five of these world-class schools have no fees.

4] Take a course at a good university. For example, http://www.topuniversities.com/university-rankings/world-university-rankings shows the world's top universities.

5] Look for national accreditation. By accreditation, I mean an independent measurement of quality which most universities do not have. For example many of the German business school don't have MBAs with international accreditation, but they do have FIBAA accreditation http://www.fibaa.org/nc/en/programme-accreditation/accredited-programmes.html

6] Try distance learning. Many accredited schools have distance learning programmes which are much cheaper than their regular degrees, such as ESCEM in France or the University of London International Programme. Harvard has an excellent ALM in Management, which is also around $20,000 -- much cheaper than the average MBA - although that would require some time in summer schools in Boston.

7] Try a non-degree programme. The University of London International Programme offers a Diploma for Graduates in Management which is run by the London School of Economics. It's under $2,000 http://www.londoninternational.ac.uk/courses/diploma-graduates/lse/diploma-graduates-management
