Grrat post. I was checking continuously thiss blg and I'm impressed! Extremely helpful info particularly the last part :) I care for such information a lot. I was looking for this particular information for a very long time. Thank you and good luck.

This is the perfect website for everyone who really wants to understand this topic. You understand so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I actually would want to…HaHa). You certainly put a brand new spin on a topic which has been written about for years. Excellent stuff, just great!

Internet has its negative and positive aspects for all of us but It will still depend on how we use the internet.

There is less hassle having online classes. First, it is convenient for an individual because he has to stay at home but aside from that, it's unreliable for my own opinion to have it because we cannot really tell if it's accredited or not.

online education is kinda scary to be honest. the accreditation is spotty and there is much confusion as to where the best courses are

Online Education is really good way of Education. It saves our time to go at institute, schools or college.

I also think so that with the help of online education they can do studies along with their jobs at lower rates.

Online class is a big help if taken seriously. There are things you will discover what you don't learned from the lecture class. I'd rather have myself doing online class than pay somebody else. I can focus more and I can get what I want to learn.

thanks nice post

Great update i am obliged to know that people who cant afford full time studies have an option to complete their studies through these online courses. Thanks for the update.

great article ! nice. thank you so much for this valuable information

Nice site! thank for the information sir.

Jonathan Blaine,

Western Governor's University is not currently a member of AACSB (see the member list at http://www.aacsb.edu/membership/MemberListings/educational.asp), which is required before undergoing the rigorous accreditation process, which can take anywhere from 3-7 years to accomplish.

AACSB does have non-accredited members that operate solely on-line, such as U21 Global in Singapore, or Walden University in the United States. You are correct when you say that there are no accredited on-line only schools (yet), but that is not to say that there never will be. And in the interim, as I pointed out in my last post, there are AACSB-accredited schools that offer exclusively on-line degree programs.

Joseph, you are absolutely right. personally i was observed the education values since 2001 to 2010 and finally reached out the same results as you mentioned. thanks

It's interesting tha AACSB would publish such an article, since it has not even one online-only school in its ranks, such as nonprofit Western Governors University, my alma mater. Even without the nod from AACSB, US News and World Reports ranks its nursing MBA as one of the best, along with its undergrad business degrees. No doubt, with AACSB accreditation, WGU's robust and extremely challenging curriculum would vault all of its MBA degrees into the mid to top echelons.

Hopefully, that omission of nonprofit online-only schools (and I'm specifically not including the for-profits in this argument) will soon change due to the utter stampede of adult learners to business graduate school online education. WGU, for example, has received awards and kudos from business, governments and academia; the only thing missing is the AACSB seal of approval.

It's definitely true that you can find quality business education programs that are wholly or partly online. For example, AACSB's student website maintains a list of accredited schools with such programs: http://www.bestbizschools.com/masters/onlineMBAs.asp.

If you are about to look for for ways how to learn the English language there are several corners online that can offer you stuffs old references can't offer.
