Bachelor Degree In Business Wanted
Q: I am interested in taking up a bachelor degree
via distance education, but is unsure of the
value and recongisation that most universities
online. Any good universities to recommend ?
preferably accredited !!! Oh, yes, if work
experience is given credits, I would put it at
the top of my list..... I got about 4 years of
working experiences and hope it can be converted
into credits. Thanks all for taking the time to
read and recommend !! =)
A:Thomas Edison State College (http://www.tesc.edu) has no limit on the number of credits you can earn through Portfolio Assessment. By portfolio, you could document knowledge gained while working, playing, ad infinitum. You might still need to take some courses and/or exams to satisfy core requirements or electives. As far as value is concerned, the Thomas Edison will (probably) cost you less than $8000. Bear in mind that a BA/BS can be earned for under $3000 as well... Recognition is dependent upon accreditation, preferably of the regional variety. Thomas Edison is regionally accredited. Therefore, the quality of your degree is not likely to be questioned. Thomas Edison grads have also been admitted to top grad schools. A word of caution before you begin. Translating "work experience" into college credit requires that you have knowledge that is equivalent to what is taught in one or more college classes. These classes must be offered at one of America's regionally-accredited colleges. For a better description of the portfolio process, please read Steve Levicoff's guide at: http://levicoff.tripod.com/tesc/tescport.htm Hello E.., I'll jot down a few of the DL undergrad business degree programs that have caught my eye over the years. Note that these are all regionally accredited programs. It's my opinion that you should restrict your list of prospective U.S. schools to those that bear the stamp of regional accreditation. Accept nothing less, especially at the undergrad level.
