What are your thoughts on an online MBA? How much is it worth paying for an online MBA and is it likely I would see a significant return if I’m making over $100k a few years out of undergrad?

Worthless. No brand equity and no network. The actual content is all free online

May have some value in non-professional non-corporate settings but otherwise worthless.

I wouldn’t say worthless, in some settings an mba is a prereq for a promotion. Maybe try exec a bit later on vs online now.

negative value when you consider the fact that it will prevent you from getting a FT MBA or EMBA later on
