The guy is doing two doctorates from similar schools. 9 credits out 18 were transferred from his DBA. In any case, I would finish the CalUniversity one and cut my losses with Aspen. I don't see the point of getting two doctorates from schools with similar reputations. If the gentleman in question wanted to boost his resume, I would put the 7K that he is spending now with Aspen and get a graduate certificate from Stanford (it might cost a bit more than 7K). At least this way, he can call himself both a Dr and a graduate of Stanford and this together might be enough to give credibility to his resume.
