Online MBA Programs

MBAonline

If you are helping someone find an online MBA program, check out MBAOnline.com. The site offers program rankings and a search by specialty and state. The site offers an online MBA guide, and an Q&A section with information about online MBAs, but what I found most interesting were the interviews with students from different programs. "[The ] interviewees will give you insight, based on personal experience, regarding issues such as the application process, program curriculum and faculty and the job search. These interviews not only cover the basics of pursuing an online MBA, but they also tackle more in depth topics including determining how an online MBA program is legitimate, whether pursuing an online MBA is worth the cost and how employers view online MBAs."

A little research bonus, each of their blog posts includes a great infographic. Check out the recent post on Twinkies.
