Hello Duncan,
thanks for the feedback, another question i ask my self is what do i need with an MBA.
currently i have 14 years experience, i have an engineering degree, and worked around 7-8 years in managerial positions. the reason i do want to get an post graduate degree is that most of upper positions do require that. So my purse is not really for an education, because you can get that anywhere these days. 
my pursue here is for it to be on my CV and for me applying to upper jobs. 
I am also considering a MSC instead of MBA, which is cheaper. However, i still cannot understand the difference. if you can help me understand that too..
Thanks!

I mean that the article is not a perfect fit with your situation but it does make the point that an MSc from a much better school is often better than an MBA from a much worse school. However, I can't think of any online MSc programmes that are cheaper and better than the MMU MBA.

This really depends on your goals and the brand equity of those schools and degrees with your target employers.

Thanks Duncan
my goal is to have a post grad degree. With cheapest price that is from a good school.
i can go for IMSM UIUC
or MSM Aston
or MBA MMU.
mmu is an OK school, buts its an MBA, although has a dissertation. 

so does Aston.

I would suggest refining your goals. You can get a post-grad degree, for practically free, if that's you goal.

However, simply having a post-grad degree doesn't really do much other than those words on your CV. Instead, think about what industry you want to work in (or are working in), or the functional area ("I want to transition into accounting"), or the specific firms you want to work at. Knowing that can help you figure out which degree would be a better fit for you.
