If you want to study online, don't limit yourself to Canadian schools without a compelling reason. There is only one accredited Canadian MBA taught by distance learning (search at http://www.find-mba.com/search ) - at Queen's.

Accreditation matters if
- you want best value for money (accredited programmes are much better), or
- you want to work with firms that recruit MBAs. Those will be the most educated about the MBA market, and they know the huge difference between MBAs.

Thanks Duncan. You are right, if I want to study online then I should not look only in Canada.

On that note, I looked at USD (University of South Dakota) online MBA. It is accredited by AACSB and costs pretty low around 12K.

Does anyone have a feedback about Univ of South Dakota online MBA?

That is an amazing price (of course, only available to thoser who have done the prerequisite courses). It has a traditional design and I am sure it will be good. One week seems to be a block leadership course on campus, and that is a huge advantage.

I'd also look at the Massachuset, Wisconsin and Georgia consortium MBAs

Thanks Duncan. Yes, the $12K does not include the prerequisite courses. I looked at the other ones that you recommended. However, they are priced higher than my budget. I am looking for something less than 20K all together.

There are few AACSB accredited options available for Non-residents in my cost range-
1. University of South Dakota
2. University of North Dakota
3. Jacksonville state University
4. University of Louisiana

Among these four, which one do you think is the best?

Thanks again for your help and time.

I can't really compare their online MBAs, and I strongly suggest that you ask to speak to current students.

In terms of their full-time offer, I would rank them USD > UND and JSU > UoL. http://business-schools.findthebest.com/compare/16-154-164-286/University-of-South-Dakota-SD-vs-University-of-Louisiana-Lafayette-Moody-LA-vs-Jacksonville-State-University-AL-vs-University-of-North-Dakota-ND Personally, I think the week on campus at USD is an excellent requirement.
