Attending Physician

I am an already seasoned (6yr post fellowship) attending in genetics in a large academic center, and am seriously considering pursuing an online MBA with focus in healthcare management, to land a bigger Chief title and/or go into hospital administration, or the biotech arena (which I already work as consultant for at the moment as well).

I would love advice on any online MBA that is considered at least decent, and possibly under 15k (under 10 even better!!!).

Thank you :)
