Would appreciate a pro/con breakdown of both schools for a DBA, especially from people who completed their degree programs at either school. If you'd like to share information via PM instead of public posting, please feel free to. Additionally, I am willing to do a paid email/PM consult with current and former students (or someone with a lot of program knowledge, like a current instructor at either school) to get more information. In my mind, as I am looking to spend a good amount of time and money on a DBA program, it's worth paying for a consultation to get a more "unadulterated" feel for either school If anyone has suggestions for other program options, I'd like to hear them. However, these two schools seem to tick the boxes for some of my main concerns, which are (1) regional accreditation, (2) low cost, and (3) quicker than average time to completion. Of the two, I am leaning towards California Southern as they seem to allow more transfer credit (30 vs. 15 hours of a 60 credit program) and I feel that the program overall would be quicker to complete. In any event, both programs seem to have minimal to zero prestige, but of the two, Cumberlands may be the more "prestigious" one as it was founded in the late 1880s and has a physical campus. However, I think if a hiring manager was concerned about prestige, neither school would do well at all. However, California Southern does seem to be seeking ACBSP accreditation, while Cumberlands is not. If California Southern does eventually obtain ACSBP accreditation (like NCU did, which was founded by the current California Southern owner), attending now may end up being a very cost effective way for me to obtain a degree with the potential to have a slightly better market perception down the road. My goal with the DBA is to find more online teaching opportunities (and I am already working in the field). Thanks to this community for any insights!
