    Hello all.

    I have been looking at WGU as an option. Has anyone seen anything else that would measure up? I am doing the research but the only other option Univ. Of Phoenix which has a rep that is not great. I am also investigating the Professional Dev. options listed in a previous post to see if any of those schools are an option.

    Thank you in advance. I will post my progress as I hear back from various schools.

    What kind of Master's? There are several schools that offer online competency-based models. But some of them only offer certain degrees.

    The reputation of the school matters less as your other qualifications--especially experience--grow.

    I think Capella now offers this learning modality.

    It depends which Masters you or your friends are looking into. What type of or which professional development Masters program are you referring to? There are a few providers, but their selections are all very limited. For example, if you're looking at Management/Leadership, then UMPI, UMass Global are options other than WGU's MSML, but I would still suggest WGU over those two for cost, ease, speed to finish. For MBA or MSIT, etc, WGU is also a very good option, vs Purdue Global, Walden, etc.

    If you’re more specific, someone might know of something, but in general? Education, competency based, at the MA level? It’s WGU.

    Are you looking to get a license, or advance a teaching certificate you already hold?
