I think you'll find very few good options in the US at that price because most MBAs are two years.

In Europe, some good quality English-languages MBAs under $30,000 include, in more or less declining order of fees:
University of Southampton
University of Glasgow
Kingston University
University of Westminster
University of Surrey
University of Exeter Business School
Newcastle University*
Skema Business School - Sophie Antipolis Campus *
University of Birmingham *
Brunel University
Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore
The University of Wales, Aberystwyth
Alba Graduate Business School
Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers
Pompeu Fabra University
Koc University
CEU Budapest *

PS I have put a * at the end of the ones I especially recommend.

Duncan's list is good. CEU in Budapest is a great value.

For US schools, you are very limited. Even one-year MBAs like the one at Emory Goizueta are over twice your budget.

If you can increase your budget a little bit, you have more options: University at Buffalo offers a 21-month program for just under $40k. CSU Long Beach in California's MBA program is $36k. Also in California, SDSU's MBA costs about $42k.

Portland State is a good school, and cost of living in Portland is pretty low. Cost of that program: $48k

I just believe that money should not be the barrier to aspire to learn.

At around that price there is University of Missouri which host the Crosby MBA
http://business.missouri.edu/Crosby+MBA/default.aspx

The University is a respected one and the programme is decent. It has CFA partnership and is endorsed by Warren Buffet. You cant go wrong with it.

The fees is also very kept at your prime range but they have a lot of scholarship and aid and assitantship which means if you you work hard you can pretty much get a free ride with some stipend as well.

All the best

Else where Brigham Young is pretty cheap at 40-45 grand and you can count on some aid. or Wisconsin Madison MBA which is priced at 50-60 grand with some aid.

A bit cheaper you can look at New York State University such as Albany or New York City University such as CUNY.

Those programmes wont be top-ranked and I doubt they will get you to Wall St or consulting firm but they certainly provide good education and the peace of mind of not having so much debt.

Donho's advice is solid. One thing to consider as well is that the programs he's mentioned have varying levels of acceptance levels for international students (I'm assuming you are an international student.)

BYU accepts far fewer international students than CUNY Zicklin, for example. Missouri sits somewhere in the middle.

I'd also echo the advice from others in this thread that if you can increase your budget, you'll be better off in the long run.

If you do the math, based on average salaries post-graduation, you'll find that taking loans to get into a higher-ranked school will often pay off, even after just a few years. Just something to think about.

This looks like a good value for an AMBA-accredited MBA program. But beyond the low cost, I wonder how this school stacks up against other accredited programs in Europe. I mean, Greece has a 24% unemployment rate at the moment, and I'd imagine it would be difficult for foreign MBA students to land jobs there. Thoughts?

Quite impossible to find a job there paying an MBA salary with a local MBA, I would imagine. And not a happy place to spend a year, with Golden Dawn beating up foreigners while the police stand aside.

PS But if you're a white European planning to leave Greece...

Good point to discuss. I agree but I also would like to point out some remarks.

I agree that It would be definitely difficult for people to land jobs in Greece not only because of the high unemployment levels but also that usually you would need to know Greek in order to get a job. Nevertheless, the program, the networking and the level of Greek Professors is in very good standards. Also, who wouldn't want to live in sunny, cultural and historical Athens for some time? After all, we should not study just for the degree but for the whole experience. :-)
I understand that for some people, going for an MBA will give them the opportunity to find a good job in that region.

However, from my point of view, someone who is pursuing an MBA doesn't have to stay in the same country. He/She can go anywhere he/she wants. I also understand that the MBA will give you some local connections but job opportunities are global and there is no need to stay there. An ambitious businessman/woman doesn't think regionally. For eg. I will start my MBA at the university of Pisa this January but I don't think that I will stay in Italy for a job. It costs 8000 euros, it is not accredited yet but I don't mind. Since MBAs have become a for-profit industry, this MBA is cheaper even than the online MBAs, it is from a good, old (1343) University and you can use it to play internationally. This is the cheapest full time, 12 month MBA that someone can find in Europe from a large and established public University. It's new and runs just for 3-4 years already and I think it will gain reputation rapidly. Especially if it gets accreditation, it will definitely rise its tuition fees. The reason personally I didn't go for the MBA in Athens, is that I didn't want to study again in Greece. I want to get education from different countries for the total experience. Italy now will be the 5th.

However, for an accredited MBA, I think the MBA in Athens is among the best in Europe concerning value for money. If you don't care for accreditation then definitely apply to Pisa. To sum up, I think every choice is a matter of personal targets and your perspective of employability.

PS. Golden Dawn is a problem but this is a very small minority of Greeks and almost everyone in the country is against their behavior. If you are not an illegal immigrant and you don't sell illegal stuff on the streets, then no matter what is your color, you will not have a problem.

There will be a MBA fair in my hometown, Istanbul next week. I was wondering about the UK schools attending the fair.

Cranfield School of Management
Imperial College Business School
Imperial College London
Kent Business School,
University of Kent
University of Surrey Business School
Falmouth College of Arts
University College Falmouth

Which one do you think would be the best fit for someone with four years of job experience in insurance market and is interested making a shift in his career and start working overseas after they graduate?

I think Greek is what it is now for certain reasons.

Being an illegal immigrants mean you deserve thugs beating you up.

Why don't they go and beat up those corrupt official who are living on the flesh of their people, paying back the debt and paying more tax and work more.

No one said that they deserve to be beaten up. The comment was based on true facts from what is happening the last months. It neither agreed with the idea nor promoted the action of beating up anyone and no one said that Greeks agree with that behavior. So before we create impressions and start a political conversation, I want to say that I totally agree with you that they should beat up (also against the human rights here...) those corrupted officials. But from what I see, it might happen very soon. Yes, there were and are corrupted people like in any country and unfortunately they had the power to destroy Greece. Greece's dept in absolute numbers is not causing the financial problem but it is the small part that if it falls, the whole European concept together with its financial interests will fall too. It's a domino case for Italy, Spain etc., that EU and especially Germany want to prevent. There are many issues to discuss here, forced loans with very high interests, bailouts that go back to the banks and not to the people, etc. I think it is not a place to have this discussion but if the moderator doesn't have problem then ok. I just want to point out that It is a pity that the last decades people have become more unethical and the game for money seems the main goal of life for many. To go back to the MBA discussion, I believe that it is not worth to study an MBA that costs many thousands of euros. I believe that education should be free for anyone and promote those who are mentally capable and not those who are financially secure. Most of us study an MBA for a better position or to work in a business related environment but if you think about it a bit more, it's all about the money. But maybe if it wasn't about the power then we would go against nature, would we? ;-) Just thoughts...

Ioannis is mistaken. For most people who take an MBA which costs thousands, or tens of thousands, of euros it is actually the best investment they will ever make. On average, graduates of high quality MBA programmes end up earning over $100,000 a year. That's not the case for the graduates of lower-quality programmes. The outcomes are very different.

On the political question. I don't think it would be helpful for fascists to be free to attack officials in the same way they attack migrants. Greece needs respect and justice, not equal suffering.

Maybe I am mistaken, maybe this is the wrong forum to say that...or maybe things are working different in USA than in Europe, I don't know. I just want to say that people should not have a fake hope that automatically something magical with happen in their professional life if they invest a huge amount of money to study in the top schools. In Europe at least, I don't see that it makes so much difference concerning earnings. Any top MBA like any good tool has no real value if it is not used properly. Good degrees are an advantage but at the end, it mostly depends on us how employable we are, not just on our papers. But that is just my opinion.
JK Duncan very good input with the last sentence. Even if there are moments of frustration, I agree with you that violence of any kind is not the answer. After all, intellect is what is separating us from animals.

Ioannis, the MBA isn't magic. There are risks in any choice. But a top MBA is actually one of the safest investments you can make. If you are good enough to get selected, then it's quite probable that you'll double your salary. That happens to tens of thousands of people, most of whom learn how to use the MBA fairly well.
