Value alternatives to unaccredited MBAs?

Thanks for spotting that. I have updated the post. It's still excellent value for some who wants the core of the MBA in just one year, and with a modern curriculum. However, it does make the UoP MBA a better choice for people who want to study over two years, have more assessment and better feedback, and have a nationall-accredited US degree.  


Yes, it's amazing to think that you can still study a core MBA curriculum with an excellent and respoected US university for the same price as some two day courses.

Other EdX courses have seen large price increases recently. I'm guessing this is due to a global increase in demand for online learning triggered by the COVID pandemic.

Plus, the Maryland Core - and other courses like it - are gaining credibility. This undoubtedly leads to more interest, which increases demand. 

I mean, if you think about it, the Maryland / EDx MBA launched in what - 2018? At that time it was rather untested, but it's three years later now.

Another reason that prices of courses on MOOCs may be going up is the potential crystallisation of financial value in these platforms. Coursera is reportedly looking at a $5bn IPO and I would imagine EdX must be of similar worth.

It's probably a good time for Coursera to do an IPO. That $5bn estimate is probably a bit overvalued and driven by the pandemic. Once things get back to normal I am not at all convinced Coursera will be hugely profitable.

Hello,
I wonder is the MBA from University of East London valuable or not?

The price for UoL (LSE direction) is around £20,000 for BSc (12 full courses) and you might have 8 courses for graduate entry track (which is still around £13k). Am I missing something something? The original post said it is only £3k.

Also, the price for MMU is almost £14k now.

Don't the UoL degrees have different pricing structures for various regions?
