    They state:

    With the entire curriculum online, you can take courses on your own schedule, satisfying your degree requirements as quickly as you choose.

    If this were RA I would enroll in a heartbeat.

    Is there a particular reason the MBA should be regionally accredited? Are you planning to teach? Does your employer only recognize regionally accredited degrees? Are you planning on pursuing a doctorate degree? As far as truly self-paced RA MBAs only WGU seems to be close but foreign students are not eligible to apply for some reason.

    Amberton University (RA) offers an MBA via distance education at an accelerated rate though not completely self-paced. Completion time is estimated to be 15-24 months.

    Another forum member, not longer active, earned a DETC MBA from Aspen University and was eligible for CPA training in Canada if memory serves. This degree is self-paced within the expected course duration of 10 weeks.

    Northcentral University is close....... Classes are self paced with an expectation that you complete the course within 12 weeks. You can finish the course sooner if you want. They are RA.

    If a foreign RA-equivalent degree will meet your needs, and you are a glutton for punishment, there are rumors of people doing the entire Heriot-Watt EBS MBA in a single exam diet. I'm too lazy to look up the threads here, but I know it's been talked about.

    That being said, I'm going to also give you the advice that earning your MBA is as much about the process as it is about the degree. Rush through the process, and you may find that you have shortchanged yourself in the long run. You only get one crack at this, so do it right.

    Best of luck to you!

    How do you know they won't? I didn't know my employer would until I asked.

    I took a full time MBA and a few modules of EBS MBA, I must say that the EBS MBA is far more rigorous than even my full time MBA, taking all in one exam is super hectic, nearly impossible to be having good grades.
