low cost mba (online)

Hi I've been researching for a few days now as to the options for an MBA.

I have a good Masters from a good London Uni, but feel I wish to do a qualification to boost my management / business knowledge. My problem is that I have little savings to put to this. I have a masters already so I can't apply for another UK student loan.



I have an interest in international business and technology. (I'll probably continue to work in IT)

But I thought to keep my course broad so it is widely applicable.



My thoughts were to apply as for as many scholarships as possible but I am not a 'stellar' student academically apart from my existing masters. So I doubt I'll get something?



I have looked a lot at the mini masters or the core masters that are on coursera / edex.org this is a good option.



I'd need to do this online and part time. Apologies I know this is a long list of points to consider but I'm looking for suggestions in terms of making the most out of things.



thanks Zoe

>> edit,  I should add I have I think enough project management experience for reasonable business experience (20yrs)

If your goal is knowledge, then you don't need a full MBA. Coursera and EdX are exactly the right place to look. The Maryland Micromasters is astonishing value, for example.

thank you I agree.  I'm also in a competitive area and I'm trying to show a competitive advantage.  I think the Maryland example is great and I think this is at the very least I'd be happy to do.  perhaps a few of these carefully chosen micromasters from reputable unis are better than a cheap mba?

I concerned after reading a few comments on the board that the world and his wife has these coursera certificates and they aren't valued as much.

I can't post a link here but there is a post by Duncan "Value alternatives to unaccredited MBAs". There are at least two accredited low cost MBAs on that list, Missouri and Manchester Metropolitan.
