    I'm looking at East Carolina (because I'm in NC, it's the cheapest option for me, and my previous manager did his masters online there and had positive things to say about it), and UNCG (I'm familiar with the school since I did my undergrad there years ago, and it's within driving distance if I think I'd be better taking a course in the traditional setting for the harder courses).

    I also like Illinois-Springfield; they were one of the very first b&m's to offer this type of thing. They used to offer in-state tuition to all online students (I assume they still do). I was actually enrolled 7 years ago and dropped the first day because I had recently found out I had kid on the way and other stuff in life happening at the time... figured I'd have more time to work on it later. Boy was I wrong!

    Thanks. I'm not totally discounting online options from other B&Ms throughout the country, including Illinois-Springfield, University of Maryland, UMass-Lowell (for the Masters), etc.

    I plan on checking out the in-state/near state [NYC] options I have first as well as other logistics. My in-state/near state options I can do off-line, as I'm relatively close from my job/home. Online, I have to consider price and other criteria. It's a decision I can't make lightly, because unlike my BS endeavor, this one will be start-to-finish. Can't afford to waste time/money this time...

    Thank you once again.

    I also wish for this thread to be a sticky.

    Default You might also want to look into the National Centers of Academic Excellence

    "NSA and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) jointly sponsor the National Centers of Academic Excellence in IA Education (CAE/IAE) and CAE-Research (CAE-R) programs. The goal of these programs is to reduce vulnerability in our national information infrastructure by promoting higher education and research in IA and producing a growing number of professionals with IA expertise in various disciplines."

    National Centers of Academic Excellence - NSA/CSS

    The School I am getting my MA through (Capitol College) was one of the original members. There are now over 100 and many offer distance as well as B&M options. There are even some two year schools that offer an AA degree in Information Assurance, none of which are online only (that I could find).

    This post is GOLDEN, and should be a sticky! Thank you!
    I've been doing some research with Illinois and they require a 3.2 GPA from your undergrad. I am waiting for them to get back to me on how WGU would work for them.

    Thank's to jtoast's post from the Capella thread:

    Highly impressed with Capella University.

    I was able to find even more schools that are not only Brick and Mortar, but AACSB-accredited where one can get an MBA online. Some have been mentioned, some others weren't. The last school, Central Michigan U, even has an SAP concentration!

    GetEducated.com's online degree rankings are based on a Fall 2009 survey of AACSB accredited masters degrees in business administration (Distance MBA). Costs were valid at the time of collection (Fall 2009).

    Online MBA Rankings AACSB - Top Affordable Best Distance MBA | Ratings & Rankings | GetEducated.com


    There's a LOT of schools on that list that haven't even made the thread........you could spend hours going through that list in your pursuit of a good school that's online that offers a MBA online (I'm sure there would be other Masters programs as well.)

    Thank you jtoast! Wouldn't have seen this without clicking on your Oklahoma State U. post.

    quick question.

    lets say i do obtain an online masters from a distinguished state university, for example UoColorado or UoTexas, UofMichigan etc etc.
    say a potential employer views your resume and knows that you haven't stepped foot there once. How do you explain it? do you just mention that it was online even though its the same diploma as if you sat there? Obviously its no university of pheonix but ive been wondering. What would HR think?

    Since a good number of TEers love bullets so much (for resumes, me too....)
    • You can offer to have sent the official transcript from the B&M school upon request from the employer (be it HR or the hiring manager that is interviewing you).
    • You can also offer to show writing samples for some of your classes. Personally, I plan on keeping all of my coursework on my thumbdrive.
    • Do some homework to help bolster your argument that the online education model is becoming an accepted model for a working adult who wished to further his/her education. One such point would be if it was not a viable model of granting a degree, univerisities such as Penn State, Drexel, U. of Colo, or U. of Texas wouldn't offer them.
    • Make some valid points that the online model of receiving an education is actually much harder than the traditional model of receiving an education.
    After about another decade, or two......a lot of degree programs are either going to be entirely online OR have some sort of blended/hybrid program, like what Harvard Extension School offers (their degree programs can't be done entirely online). The online model is not going away...

    James Madison University also has an Information Security MBA that is mostly online. Courses are eight weeks long, and I believe you meet at the beginning and end of each course, but the rest is online. Every course, be it economics, accounting, management, finance, etc has an emphasis on information security.

    I recently took the time to make a spreadsheet from my own research.
    This spreadsheet is for Master Degree programs relating to LAN-WAN Administration, Networking and Telecommunications.

    This is a short list and doesnt cover other IT areas such as Security or Project Management nor does it include regular Computer Science, CIS or general IT Degrees.
    (I can imagine that list being huge)

    Maybe someone can add on to this with those types so we can truly have a nice collection.

    I included such things as rank, cost and total credits.

    please let me know what you guys think

    In response to what OP was looking for initially: If you’re interested in online MBA degrees, you should definitely give Stevens-Henager College a go; it’s accredited by the ACCSC (Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges), is really well rated, offers online and on-campus programs, and has an online MBA degree program that can be completed in 15 months.

    I would add Davenport's MSIA program to the list.
    The program can be completed completely in class or online and it is program has been certified as a CAE by the NSA.

    The program is also very reasonable. I believe it's $6,000 a year.

    I'm actually liking it, unlike in WGU you need to follow the class sylabis and curriculum but its pretty simple. A typical week consist of a lecture (really just a written lesson), a reading assignment, 1-2 DQ (discussion questions) and usually reply to atleast 2 posts atleast 5 times a week. On top of that some courses have term projects which could be a team project.
