    Thanks for the replies so far - one problem with CSU...

    seems to be that they are not accredited by the regional association of colleges and schools. This is important, right? I ultimately want to teach at the university level, so I need to make the right decisions now pertaining to proper accreditation.

    Thanks in advance for setting me straight. :)

    You will not be able to get a job teaching at the university level with a NA doctorate.

    One of the more affordable Ph.D/DBA programs I've seen is through the University of Strathclyde in the UK. It has triple crown accreditation (AACSB, EQUIS, AMBA). Very few universities have all three business accreditation. I'm not aware of anyone of this board who has applied to do a Strathclyde doctorate, but the university does advertise that their doctorates may be done at a distance.

    CSU ... meaning Columbia Southern University? They are accredited by the Distance Education & Training Council, which is national accreditation, which is legitimate accreditation but less prestigious than regional accreditation. Note: Andrew Jackson University and California Intercontinental University are also DETC, not by their respective RAs.

    NA = National Accredited
    RA = Regional Accredited

    Also, Kennesaw State University offers DBA via distance learning.

    You should note that if you're planning on teaching at the uni level it may also be useful to complete a program that is aacsb accredited . Suffice to say, the detc programs are not aacsb. For that matter, neither were the RA schools mentioned this far (excepting strath and case western I believe)

    Ignore my last sentence above...I hadn't read through all of the schools/programs listed herein.

    Long and short: if you're looking to teach, you should look for regional accreditation as well as AACSB accreditation. Academia is a bit ....silo'd....with their accreditation lens.

    They do tell this "We do not offer a distance-learning programme." on their website.

    Yes, but you missed the sentence right before that. It reads:

    "Part time students are required to be present in the Department for at least 10 days per year."

    Strathclyde used to openly advertise that part-time students did not need to be present on campus to complete their doctoral programs. With the exception of the limited residency, this still seems to be the case. The only thing that has changed is the wording.

    If you're looking to teach at the university level, I would recommend a doctorate that is AACSB accredited . There are a few programs like this in Europe that offer external research options.

    The University of Florida is AACSB www.aacsb.edu. Does anyone know what happened to their proposed short-residency DBA?
    Nova Southeastern University www.nova.edu is in candidacy for AACSB.
    Grenoble www.grenoble-em.com is AACSB.
