MBA Costs at U Mass Amherst Isenberg
As a member of the University of Massachusetts Amherst alumni association, I'd like to let people know about the Isenberg School of Business at UMass Amherst. They offer an flexible part-time MBA that is 100% online and is also endorsed by the American College of Physician Executives (ACPE). The Isenberg Part-Time MBA Program ranked 5th in the Northeast and 29th in the Nation by BusinessWeek. It is accredited by the AACSB and students even have the option of taking live courses on select UMass campus locations.
This is a 37-credit program that can be done over 4 years, but most students complete this program in 2 - 2.5 years while working full-time. If you've a physician and you've been thinking about pursuing an online MBA, this is one you should seriously consider. Each class will cost roughly $2,000 so that puts the entire program at roughly $25,000. At some universities, you'll easily pay over twice that amount to get an MBA.
So what are you waiting for? You can even take 1-2 classes as a non-degree student and then transfer those credits towards your MBA degree.
