I am a 32 year old IT manager looking for a career change. I am not able to quit my job due to my personal situation, so full time MBA is not an option. I live in the US and I am not planning on moving out of the country.

I just completed my GMAT and received 730 49(Q) 41(V). I have a Bachelors in Computer Science from a small public university with around 3.0 GPA. I have around 10 years of IT and managerial experience.

What are the best distance learing MBA programs for me? I am aware of Indiana, UNC, Duke and IE. But I am not sure which is the best for my situation.

First consideration, I need something that will help me with career change and help break the glass ceiling. Second, very distant consideration, I want the most prestigious degree I can get. :-)

All suggestions are welcome! Thank you for your help!
