    College selection advice

    Hi all,

    I have a 2 year degree and I'm looking to finish it with an online 4 yr degree program. Really looking for a flexible/easy credited college-not a Walden type, more like ASU or University of Illinois type.

    I have a lot of experience as a director and VP in business. My current company pays for undergraduate and graduate degrees and I want to take full advantage of both.

    I travel for work about 3 days a week but I have full access to internet. I know this information is somewhat limited but I'll take all options and any follow up questions too.

    My apologies for any grammatical errors since I'm typing on my phone on a plane.

    Frank

    What field(s) of study interest you, or would be most appropriate to your career goals?

    Also, what aspects are important for you; ease of credit transfer, credit by exam, cost, speed, etc.?

    Hi Bruce,

    Great questions.
    Ease of course and course work is number 1, with speed being second. credit of exam?

    I'm looking to get my MBA so my undergraduate can just be a liberal arts degree if it's faster.

    MBA 's don't require a business degree, but most if not all require at least some business classes. It may benefit you to find out where you want to attend for your MBA and see what their requirements are beyond the gpa and Gmat scores. If they require specific courses, you could earn them while working on a degree in general studies.

    Hey Catlin,

    I'll play it safe and just finish with a business degree.

    Any suggestions on a college?

    The Bachelors degree in Business is quite likely the most common distance learning degree in the world. Literally every state university system in the USA has at least one such program. Asking which one is easiest seems to me a bit insulting. Which is fastest (potentially) is a clearer question as some programs have accelerated courses. If you want to test out in a manner supported by the Big 3 you may be able to finish up the fastest. In that case you should read through out CLEP/Testing forum. Here's my suggestion

    Look around and see if you can find an online program from a school that is AACSB accreditation. It's the best business accreditation in the states. If you're looking for something might as well try to get what's better. There are many state and some private schools with this accreditation, with more than a few online I think. Some of these schools which also have the MBA offered will allow you to use a ladder program, letting you to fo directly into the MBA without the GMAT so long as you meet the GPA requirement. Not all do this, so I would look into it. I think Missouri State university has the accreditation and the ladder program. I'm sure there are others that may fit better for you.
