    Any non-US universities for me, knowledge is limited; especially those are in the non-English speaking countries. According Wikipedia.com, the institute is accredited any recorganized by the Country of Mexico.

    "Universidad Azteca is located in Chalco, a community in Mexico State in the greater Mexico City area.

    Universidad Azteca de Chalco is affiliated to Centro de Estudios Superiores Azteca. The private university was established in 1994 and recognized by the federal Secretary of Public Education (SEP) of the United States of Mexico first in 1997.

    The university offers classroom on-campus as well as distance education and e-learning programs and awards degrees in a variety of specialisations in the above mentioned study areas.

    The University is listed with the official Mexican government cultural and scientific information exchange network http://www.nl.gob.mx/?P=scoe_op_nac_mexico as a recognized and accredited university.

    Universidad Azteca de Chalco is also listed with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), International Association of Universities under the list of universities of Mexico and the International Handbook of official directory Universities of accredited universities published by the United Nations

    Any comment on as to the value?

    cheers

    What do you think?

    Can you make a case for this thing? Does it have any cool features, academic strengths or scholarly accomplishments that you can point to?

    Could you defend Universidad Azteca to a prospective employer if he or she expressed skepticism?

    I'm not impressed by the fact that despite boasting 150 faculty, it seems to boast more off-shore franchises than publications. Nor am I convinced that whatever Mexican approvals Universidad Azteca has received extend to foreign franchises in places like India. The Mexican parent does appear to be in the UNESCO Handbook though.

    My initial reaction is that this is the second coming of MIGS. Maybe I'm wrong, but somebody needs to present that argument.

    Getting an online diploma from a school in one of these 3rd world countries can only be a liability and not an asset on your CV.

    That's a very US centric opinion. I'd imagine if you live in Mexico or India, getting a diploma from one of those third world countries wouldn't be that much of a liability. If was born in Mexico, lived in Mexico and worked in Mexico, what is the issue with getting a diploma in Mexico?

    One thing is for certain. Sounds like you have an "imagination"!

    Oh, yeah. Our universities are just filled to their brims with Latinos who snuck across the border. Please.

    BTW, I thought I sniffed a bit of MIGS II, but I'm not sure yet.

    If you people want to go to an online diploma mill from Mexico or India.. go for it! You can debate the merits of University of Azteca until you are blue in the face. I am simply stating that this will be a liability in the USA, not an asset!

    Perhaps this type of nonsense school works in Mexico or India but I don't buy into it.

    I'm not commenting on the diploma mill, I'm commenting on your comments that "no one will take a diploma from Mexico or India seriously including corporations from Mexico and India" and that all Mexicans and Indians wanting a higher education sneak into the US.

    Basically what you are saying is that all Mexican and Indian schools are worthless, even to those companies that solely exist in those countries.

    Maybe you meant no one will take THIS diploma seriously even in those countries but that's not how it came across.

    Okay, I'm getting more sure:

    "Today, Universidad Azteca is a multi-campus university system with academic centers in different regions of the country and Branch Campuses and representatives in other countries."

    "Other countries"? "Representatives"? Sounds like either MIGS or Empresarial. But the price (4,400 Euro) is really low.

    I disagree with that pretty emphatically.

    My own interests these days run towards aspects of Indian religious history , philosophy and practice. As one would expect, Indian universities are among the world leaders in studying their own massive tradition. They are very productive in terms of publications and the country has entire academic publishers devoted to Indology.

    As one example (of many) here's the Rare Buddhist Texts Research Unit at India's Central University of Tibetan Studies at Sarnath. It offers doctoral degrees and has a five-star rating from the UGC's NAAC, the Indian national university accreditor. There's really nothing like this in the United States.

    Turning to Mexico, several Mexican universities are American regionally-accredited. UNAM in Mexico City might be a bit iffy on the undergraduate level on account of its tremendous size (hundreds of thousands of students) and reports of uneven standards, but it's certainly research productive on the graduate level. It is probably among the best places in the world to study Mexico's pre-Columbian cultures, for example.

    That's not to say that every program originating in India or Mexico is credible either. That's obviously not the case. People have to be discerning.

    That's right! Even if they are legitimate schools, in my opinion, most USA corporations would laugh! Now recognize that these are opinions and opinons are like a$$ holes and everyone has got one and they all stink!
