The Univ. of Pennsylvania is offering what may well be the fastest RA doctorate anywhere, much less from an Ivy League school, much less in a part-time program where one can remain fully employed. The "executive doctorate" in higher education management is a 20-month program; the dissertation is also written during those 20 months. Two and a half days on campus each month. No GMAT or GRE exams required. The cost is a mere $81,000, which includes room and board on campus, and students loans are available. www.gse.upenn.edu/hem Further evidence, perhaps, for the "Good - Fast - Cheap - choose any two" hypothesis.
