    Does anyone know about Smartly's Free MBA and Executive MBA? The site indicates,

    " The World’s First Elite Online MBA. If You're Accepted, It’s Free."

    But what school issues the MBA, or just from a start-up Smartly MOOC? According to their summary, it seems to be really competitive.

    From their FAQ:
    Is the MBA degree accredited? - Smartly Help Docs

    Odd. So after you put on your resume that you have a Harvard BA and a "Smartly" MBA? These people must be doing it for the knowledge because it totally waters down their undergrad prestige.

    I'm not knocking the school itself. Free is free - enough said. But that name! What's next, "The Rapidly Institute," where you can complete your degree at warp speed? Or perhaps "Cheaply College," for those of us willing to pay something, but not much. I think "Smartly" has earned a place in the Worst School Names thread, here: http://www.degreeinfo.com/off-topic-discussions/32698-worst-university-name.html

    I have a choice to come back where I left off within 10 years (2022); however, it more like I am not able to because of heavily residencies and I a full-time single dad with two little kids. I am thinking about applying for Dakota State University's for Doctor of Science in Cyber Security, but what is the ROI? I just hope one day my company offers me a full funded tuition one of the top MBA program. As of for now, I just focus on the kids, my job, and my starting up consulting business.
