I've been researching a lot of schools concerning online MBA programs. Since cost is a huge factor for me, I've found several nationally accredited schools that I'm considering. I've read that regionally accredited schools are typically a bit more reputable and the credits are more easily transferred and recognized by other schools. However, since this is my Masters and I'm not planning on going on to get a Ph.D, is it worth it to pay extra for a regional accreditation?
Do employers care at all about where the degree came from?
I'll most likely be choosing a smaller school that is not well known so I don't think anyone would know the accreditation unless they took the time to research.

While it's true that many nationally accredited MBA programs can be cheaper than regionally accredited, there are MANY affordable regionally accredited MBAs (that may even be cheaper than some of the nationally accredited ones you are looking at).
