Technically this isn’t news about Kazakhstan, but it’s making big noise here where a Western education can land you a very good job and a high salary. Apparently the London School of Business and Finance is offering free MBAs online via Facebook. OK, not really. They are, however, putting up materials online including readings and lectures. To actually get the degree, you still need to enroll and take the examinations. The idea is to let potential students “try before you buy”. If you search for LSBF on Facebook, it should come right up.
Other ways of getting an MBA from a Western university include an online business degree from accredited schools and someday perhaps, attending our very own Nazarbayev University. Of course some who go the online business degree route, forget to make sure that the school is accredited and reputable and not just a diploma mill. Not that international students going to bricks and mortar universities aren’t also taken in by schools like Oxford Brooks, not quite as reputable as Oxford University.
