    B.A. or B.S. in Finance or Business Administration

    Im looking at a couple universities that are tied to B&M to get my B.A. or B.S. in Finance or Business Administration . Ive narrowed it down to 2 that I have a possibility of getting into (and 1 that I already know I am in if I want to attend).

    Im looking at Northeastern University , Troy University, and Saint Leo University . Which 1 of the 3 should I go to if I do get in to all 3? I applied really late, didnt think I would go back to school but new job + finances gave me the possibility of doing so.

    Im so torn right now as it seems like at least 2 of the 3 I am going to be accepted. A little help would be appreciated. Thank you!

    Northeastern probably has the best reputation. It's also probably the most expensive. Why these 3? Numerous B&M schools have online bachelors in business.
    HARVARD UNIV., Ed.M-'12
    HARVARD UNIV., ALM-Gov't (on hold)
    VANDERBILT UNIV., Owen SOM; MBA'08

    Some other B&M require to do proctored testing and it didnt sound like it was possible for me to do. I looked into UMass, Ball State, Old Dominion and Drexel . Because I am so late in applying, some schools are done with taking new students.

    If I missed a college, please let me know where else I could possibly go. I just wish I could have done this sooner.

    There's always another term coming up sooner or later. You're much better off making a careful decision a little more slowly than a rash decision quickly.

    @Steve - Definitely understand that. Unfortunately, most of the schools want proctored testing and where I am at and my time schedule, it would be a pain to even attempt doing that.

    Looks like Northeastern is hands down but I highly doubt that I will get in (applied because I thought I would try). Im 10 years out of high school, 9 years out of college and not a very good GPA.

    Any other college suggestions that may accept me this late for fall?? Looked into Southern New Hampshire University and Champlain College but Southern New Hampshire University is now being investigated and Champlain College sounds exactly like Saint Leo University .

    I agree with Steve - in the meantime you could be pursuing courses (gen ed, statistics, math, etc) that you could transfer in to the school you finally select.

    My suggestion is to take the lowest overall cost degree then use the savings to get a masters degree from a good school.

    And just to add to the list of B&M schools with DL business degrees:
    Colorado State Business Management Bachelor Degree | CSU Global | Colorado State University Online
    Penn State Penn State | Online Associate in Science in Business Administration | Overview
    I do not know if these schools require proctored exams but there is no guarantee that proctored testing will not become a requirement at the schools you listed in your initial posting.

    I really need to thank people on this website. I think I found a better option. Hopefully this will work though. Thinking of attending Central Wyoming Community College to get my AA in Business Administration then transfer credits to University of Wyoming to complete my BA in Business Administration .

    Either that or go to Clovis Community College to get my AA then transfer to a 4 year university for my B.A. or B.S. in Business Administration or Finance.

    Saves me a lot of money and seems like a great idea to me. What do you guys think?

    The Wyoming plan sounds good. It's a state flagship university, is relatively inexpensive and they have a cool mascot (that last one isn't really relevant, but still, that mascot is awesome!). Let us know how it goes for you.

    Yes, it is awesome. Go Pokes!

    Also worth noting if you're going to attend a community college in Wyoming is that you have a couple of options that can result in slightly different paths to a UW degree.

    If you're interested in pursuing an Associate of Applied Science degree, which usually doesn't fully transfer to a four-year school, then you'll be interested in UW's Bachelor of Applied Science program. This is an Organizational Leadership degree that is technically offered through the College of Agriculture, but includes a large number of business courses.

    If you earn an AA or AS in business, you'll be more interested in the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration program. This is an AACSB-accredited BSBA delivered through the College of Business in cooperation with UW's Outreach School. I graduated from this program in 2004 and have been very pleased with how my degree has been received in the marketplace by potential employers and graduate programs.

    UW's Outreach School is one of the oldest distance learning institutions in the US, with almost a century-long track record of delivering college courses via correspondence, audio and video tape, videoconferencing, and online. You'll learn from the same professors that teach UW's on-campus students, and you'll "meet" fellow students from all over the world. Best of luck to you!
