MBA without full undergrad


I'm a 40-year-old in sales and I'm looking to jump-start my career. I currently manage a 250mm region for a major electronics manufacturer. I have completed a fair amount of college coursework many years ago, though I do not have an undergraduate degree. I understand some Canadian and European schools will accept a high Gmat score and excellent work history in lieu of a degree for admissions. Assuming I have a 700+/- Gmat, what are some reasonably priced distance-learning programs I should be considering?

I'd like to stay under $30k for the program, though that's not a hard limit. I'll be self-funding

I think it may be possible for some programs, but you'd probably have to reach out and ask them directly.

I know for example that the Illinois / Coursera iMBA program will admit students with less-than-ideal GPAs into what they call their "Performance-based" admissions track. Once you've completed a certain amount of coursework initially, they'll bump you to the actual MBA.

I'm pretty topped out in my field as it stands. Any equivalent positions will accept my experience in lieu of a bachelors, and any forward progression requires, or highly recommends, a masters. I don't think spending 2 years finishing my undergrad will have any Roi compared to 2 years in an Mba program.

No I wouldn't suggest finishing up the undergrad, but looking at options to as where these requirements can be waived or with the example of the iMBA program, where you can enroll in a different pathway.
