Online MBA over $1,000 credit hour

Hey all:

 

Was on the Yahoo! finance site and an add popped up for LSU online MBA program.

 

First, I am surprised that traditional "brick & mortar" schools are now starting to offer online degrees.

 

The second shocking thing was that the cost was $1,042 per credit hour!  There was an asterisk that noted prices could rise at any time.

 

I am going to assume that an MBA program would be at least 60 credit hours.

 

Who is thinking this is a good idea? Besides the school of course...  OVER $1,000 PER CREDIT HOUR?

 

I would think a good candidate for an MBA program would gauge the cost of their degree?

 

Of course, maybe I'm just a cheapskate.

 

Any thoughts?

I share the opinion of the american people regarding these on-line degrees

The drive is to bring in dollars, not the quality of the education.
