    I agree that in cases where a rock solid equivalency is necessary, such as for immigration points, one should think twice about these programs.

    But that said, I think we sometimes forget that almost no one thinks about this stuff anywhere near as much as we do.
    Suss and tadj like this.

    I think some do, Steve - I wonder about many job-seekers holding fully accredited North American MBAs they paid a ton of cash for - and did really complex and difficult work for, i.e. no ticky-box tests, How do you think they feel about the true situation, as tadj reported here.

    The difference: the educational establishment has and employs a method for determining the worthiness of such an institution, as well as the sustainment of that standard. It's called "accreditation" in the US. It is not perfect, but it is far from being nothing, too.

    TEKMAN Semper Fi!

    I always wondered why all these DBA and MBA courses are legal. I went through the MBA studies; it was brutal. You cannot master business administration by taking one course. Even with the entire program at Imperial College London, I still think there are more studied materials that need to be comprehended outside of the program.

    (1) Some are set up in low-requirement places - you buy a license and you can legally sell degrees of no standing. Swiss Cantons, Panama. One can probably peddle an Ethereal DBA in sunny, religious-exempt Florida.

    (2) Spanish propios are legal and valid in Spain. They're understood there. The BIG trouble I see with them is that Johnny Eneb, with a $200 ticky-box MBA and the gift of gab, applies for a US job and gets it -- over another applicant with a decent degree from oh - I dunno - Southwest Georgia. THAT's the thing that shouldn't be happening.

    (3) Some countries don't recognize DBAs in their own education system. So wretched outfits sell them to foreigners, but not at home.

    (4) You can call practically anything an MBA and get away with it - e.g. books like The Portable MBA in Finance (I have that one) and others. If you can do it with books I suppose you can do it with videos. Nobody cares much because we ALL know they're not degrees.... don't we?

    You pays yer money and takes yer choice.

    'Way back in the 60's a friend of mine had a British sports car, called an MBA. No, I guess it was an MGA. Close... :)
