As I now live in Utah I can not go to UT to get my MBA, but my work is paying for me to get one. So I ask you has anyone gotten an online degree from a reputable school? I am not wanting a Phoenix degree or anything like that no offense to anyone that has one. Looked at Arizona State University online MBA and it looks pretty good. I am also thinking of applying locally to Utah here. I know I would not get into BYU ie honor code. Any help would be appreciated TIA

ASU is a good one. UNC has one, Liberty(one of the pioneers in online education and well respected), King University which is a smaller Christian school in Bristol, UAB, Pepperdine, Northeastern...you can find a ton of schools. I am finishing up my Bachelor's at King and love their online program. Very user friendly and the cost is hard to beat. Liberty is also a good choice and one that will not cost nearly as much as a place like UAB. I think their rate is like $425 a credit hour and UAB is over $1000. Another thing is I know that for King or Liberty you do not have to take the GMAT which is kind of nice.

Does UT not offer MBA online?
If your work is paying for it, I would go thru a major University.
No. UT does very little online.
I have an undergrad degree from Liberty and wouldn't recommend their online MBA. Earned MBA from West Virginia University. The new Dean there (Zito Sartarelli) is doing a fantastic job. He now has their online EMBA (Which does require a few residencies of a couple days each) ranked in the top 30. Before he took the helm there was a scandal involving Senator Manchin's daughter which caused several high ranking administrators from the university to resign. Don't discount the residency requirements, those are great networking opportunities. If you're interested, PM me and I'll put you in touch with one of the administrators. She's a great lady and a friend of mine. I would highly recommend that program. It's only about $35k which is a far cry from some of the others.

Penn State now has an online MBA program.
Thanks everyone! +1 for all of the responses.
Be careful. There are a lot of cheap degrees out there, and many online MBAs fall into that category. They are big moneymakers for schools whether they are good or not. Make sure the ones you consider have a track record and some kind of selectivity. If only a pulse and a checkbook are required for admission, then stay away.
Some may not want to hear this but Florida's online MBA is ranked pretty highly. I actually did the UF professional weekend MBA since I felt the need to sit in class and my job helped pay for it. In my recent job search most companies, even those on the west coast, looked at it very highly.
UT does have an online MBA. I've called and talked about it a year ago.
Strayer University is becoming better thought of for their MBA as well. They are accredited through the agency as all the Ivy league schools, so that is helping their reputation greatly.
You might check out the US News rankings for online MBA programs. This could help. See link below.
See the list of the top ranked online MBA programs at US News.
UT-Martin at number 10. Arky State at 11. Damn.
I knew one of the UT system schools had one but couldn't remember which one. I just knew it was not THE UT.
Late to the party, but TN Tech has a great MBA online that has the top accreditation and doesn't cost that much.
