Ok. Well that is not exactly true as my employer does accept the degree. And I do understand the accreditation differences. However, I gather that your understanding may be US-centric. Accreditation has many different meanings and value depending on where you are in the world. In the UK accreditation isn't valuable but a quality assurance check is. Where I live, only about 12 percent of Universities are accredited. Most people don't even consider it when choosing a school. The US is clearly different. It may come as a shock to some, but not everyone emulates or even cares how the US does things.
