I am looking for some insights into which degree to choose. I am considering: - Doctor of Education in Leadership (Educational & Community Organization track) at the American College of Education (private, for-profit, regionally accredited) and - Doctor of Education in Organizational Leadership (Conflict Resolution track) at the Abilene Christian University (private, non-profit, regionally accredited) I earned my bachelor's degree in criminal justice from a nationally accredited school, an MBA in General Management from an international university (private, non-profit, catholic university, degree has the equivalent of regional accreditation as determined by WES.) The major differences between the two schools are: American College of Education (ACE) is for-profit, while Abilene Christian University (ACU) is not-for-profit). ACE was founded in 2005 while ACU was founded in 1906. ACE total tuition is a few $$ under $24, 000 while ACU total tuition is a few $$ under $40, 000. My career goal is to become a police chief and an adjunct college faculty. Which would you choose if you had a similar career goal? Update: Admissions wise: ACE - 3.0 GPA regionally accredited masters or foreign equivalent, goal statement, CV or resume, interview with chair and $100 application fee. ACU - Bachelor's and master's degrees (no GPA specified), statement of interest, writing sample, 2 completed recommendation forms (online), CV or resume and $50 application fee.
