MMU or LSBF or Amity or ESLSCA


Hello everyone

LSBF and ESLSCA are absolutely *NOT* accredited by AACSB.

Trent is the best of these, but the Maryland Micromasters might be better still.

Thanks Duncan for your comment
I’m quite sure that LSBF is accredited with AACSB based on their brochure and ESLSCA as well

You are being misled. They are members of AACSB. Anyone can join it, even you. They are not accredited by it. Membership is not accreditation. Search for them on the AACSB website or look for an AACSB logo that says Accredited. LSBF is over a McDonald's and got raided by the immigration police. I am amazed it's open. Surely the Russians who own it are moving everyone over to their new De Broc school?

It seems the Amity programme leads to the full MBA of the Open University here in the UK. That is a good qualification: https://amityonline.com/executive/google-s/mbaagv/

Manchester Metropolitan is also an above average choice.

With three triple crown choices, there is no need to consider low quality options like EBS, which lack International accreditation.

OU and MMU are the only triple crown schools on the list. That list has many of the accreditations wrong, and probably the prices as well.

OU pricing should be in the £20000 range. Nottingham Trent is around £16000. At those prices, you should probably consider the illinois or Boston MBAs. There is a reason these are suggested all the time.

I was suprised to see Manchester Metropolitan has triple accreditation and costs only £11000. One of the cheapest accredited options out there it seems.

The posting person perhaps have favourable pricing. If they can get the OU degree for £9k it's great value.

On the OU website amity is listed as official international partner (http://business-school.open.ac.uk/reputation)

Following the link form OU, it seems the cost of the MBA is 600.000 INR (£6400) http://amityglobalvarsity.com/Home/program_mba

This seems to be the price for everyone. It still is a bit strange to offer an OU degree for £6400. I would contact Open University to make sure they are the ones giving the degree, just to be sure.

But it does looks like a great value indeed! Maybe too good to be true.

I don't think it's too odd, assuming that all the delivery is by Amity and it's just the validation which comes from the OU. It's like an LSE diploma in economics. That also costs more in the UK than in India.

Hmm true that. I always liked that UoL policy to charge poor countries less.
But I think Amity is charging everyone the same. That would mean anyone could just choose to do the (much)cheaper version.
If it is available to everyone for that price, it may deserve a spot in the cheap alternatives thread

Given the choice I would still pay more to get academic delivery from the OU: access to UK academics, face to face sessions with a global cohort, better feedback on assessments, maybe a wider range of options.
