    Hello Everyone,

    Is anyone here enrolled in the Ashworth College MBA program? Any information on the program would be appreciated.

    I am an Ashworth MBA student. I have done 4 courses, and I am almost done with the 5th. Actually, 5 done and the sixth in progress if you count the no-credit intro course.

    You read the text, you read assigned articles, and you write. Each course has about 6 lessons. Each lesson has two or three assignments. Two are short essays, each 1 to 3 pages. Most lessons also have a larger paper of about 4 to 10 pages. Mind, these are all single spaced papers. There is a course final paper as well, which requires some research. Overall, expect to write 50 to 60 single spaced pages of material.

    Grading, to me, is lenient. Expect to do a lot of work, though.

    Support is minimal; the program requires a motivated person who is willing to do the learning for themselves. I've never needed to ask any questions, so I can't speak to that issue. Grading can be quick or take some time; they say they are allowed up to two weeks to grade.

    There are two proctored exams in the program, and I think they're hefty.

    I was fortunate to sign up when it first started, so the whole thing cost me less than $4000. They are up to $9000 now. At that cost, there are some regionally accredited and better received programs available. Consider for example.

    Overall, it is an okay school. I simply want a credential to go along with the things I already know.

    Can you transfer Ashford MBA credits into the Excelsior MBA?

    Ashford is an RA school, so its highly likely that Excelsior will accept credits from them. Ashworth however, is a DETC school, and the last communication I had with Excelsior regarding this (a month ago); I was told that they are not currently accepting Ashworth credits.
