    Read the Beginners Guide sticky a second time. I have updated it with spreadsheets on the final page in my dropbox.
    It'll show you all the required courses for a Bachelors of Science in Business Administration from TESU.

    Hi there thank you for that. I haven't had chance to look at the spreadsheets. Is the business administration degree at TESU similar to the business in accounting at Excelsior?
    Many thanks

    Both degrees are virtually identical, and both of them have Accounting as one of the concentrations. It won't matter who you go with, you transfer almost all the courses into their degree except the final course - the capstone. Take your pick, you have 4 options, TESU, EC, COSC and WGU ...

    Excelsior, TESU, and COSC have differences you need to pay attention to. There is no difference in marketability between a business degree from Excelsior and one from TESU other than that TESU's ACBSP accreditation might be more handy than Excelsior's IACBE accreditation. Additionally, I believe Excelsior has a special program meant to meet New York's CPA requirements, and TESU has a special program to meet New Jersey's CPA requirements.

    You need to choose which school you want to go with before you start testing out and completing courses because the degree requirements are different. You can't follow a TESU degree plan to finish a degree at Excelsior. If you want to attend Excelsior, then those spreadsheets will not help you.

    This is not my thing but I'm guessing that the people at Excelsior might help. Have you been in touch with them?

    Excelsior will not help you unless you're enrolled, and it costs to enroll. If you're trying to test out of a degree, you don't want to enroll at Excelsior until you're almost finished because they charge annual fees. Someone at degreeforum.net might be able to help you, but people tend to have more info on TESU because it's often the better option for business.

    Yes I have been in touch with them although haven't enrolled there. Would I be better enrolling at TESU instead if I am doing a business degree I take it? Would it also be easier doing it with them with regards to say the suggested free exams in the beginners guide sticky?
