I'm looking at Pfeiffer University and Campbell University MBA prgorams. Anyone have thoughts, opinions or know where I can see rankings for each? Thanks.

The true purpose of a MBA program has less to do with the educational training and more to do with the "internship/real-world" exposure. What this means is that a MBA degree is supposed to give you the chance to NETWORK. This is something a lot of people don't seem to recognize as MBA programs and online MBA programs becomes more and more readily available everywhere. A good MBA program should have many opportunities for on-the-job training at local and non-local businesses and firms with many alumnus willing to partake in the network process. Nowadays, anyone can get a MBA degree (Strayer, Univ Phoenix, etc.), but those degrees are worthless if you can't get a job. This is why MBA programs at all the big name schools (Harvard, Columbia, etc.) are so competitive because the students there KNOW for a fact that they will be able to network with alumnus and actual companies. Anyway, I would suggest you take a good long look at what outside the classroom opportunities are available at the programs you're interested in and see if they can provide you with a list of alumnus (then contact them to see where they're at in their careers, how that MBA program has helped them, and where they're working, etc.).
