    Not unless you're trying to get into a research Master's and the thesis at the previous school was done in close collaboration with a professor.

    They're unlikely to care unless you have the proper degree level for admission. Some exceptions may be made if the work is published and has positive reviews from that subject sector, but that's not the easiest thing to do and trying it could wind up being an elaborate workaround attempt with no guarantee of the outcome you want.

    About your AACSB roadblock: I'm not aware of how stringent schools are about admitting an undergrad without an AACSB degree into an AACSB Master's program, it's not something I've ever heard about, but it would seem rather silly to me if there is a big fuss across the board. After all, people with degrees in non-business disciplines get accepted into these programs all the time.

    Instead of leaving your foreign GPA and evaluation status up to the schools, why not just have a foreign credential evaluator do it? We already have positive results for the ENEB programs. You could try ECE, get the U.S. Regionally accredited Bachelor's degree equivalency, have them convert your grades to a U.S. standard GPA and then you'll be armed with enough to produce better acceptance outcomes.

    @Mac Juli

    Did you also receive a transcript aside of the degree certificate?

    No. Wasn‘t important for me either way.

    Hello!

    I have studied a couple of masters at www.marketcursos.com, specifically the Double Masters in Psychology. I have to say that the training is more than correct (in Spanish), although everything is practically pdf + practice and some video type podcast, the truth is that the quality of the content is excellent, the teachers are PhDs in psychology and are "human".

    I mean this because it is not like in other academies where the same guy responds to everyone no matter the course. The prices are more than good, it is lowcost without underestimating the quality, something to be thankful for nowadays.

    On the other hand, I would like to add that they offer a triple international university accreditation, endorsed by three universities.

    They do not pay me to advertise (I want to clarify that), but my degree of satisfaction is very high compared to other online academies, where you rarely find the kindness and proximity not only of the teachers but of all the staff of the academy.

    I think it is one of those academies, perhaps not so well known that deserve a chance, that work properly and also look for the economy of their students.

    I hope that with time you will get to know them because their Masters are incredible, really.

    Hello!


    I am currently enrolled in the "Máster Universitario en Emprendimiento". As soon I have an informed opinion, I will either confirm this ... or the contrary!


    Best regards,
    Mac Juli

    Those are definitely nice prices. I'm definitely interested to hear Mac Juli's opinion. They also have a 2-for-1 deal where you can get two Masters for 299€ instead of one for 250€.

    Of course, these are titulos propios that do NOT require a Bachelor's degree to access, so utility for American-based students may be more limited than ones where a degree is required.

    Hmm, for $150 Euro and 60 ECTS/1500 Hours, it seems very similarly priced to the ENEB single offering. You need to verify if it's a propio if it matters... otherwise, it seems like a good deal.

    I would be concerned with a diploma carrying three Universities. The schools involved are legit but that doesn't make it any less weird. Those in Spain won't have to worry while living in Spain, but I have reservations about how well an evaluation would go in the United States. I would be interested in what @RFValve has to say about it as I believe he has experience with the credential organization awarding the diplomas, but at the moment I'm skeptical of how it will go.

    Is there such a thing as a Bachelor Propio?
    Or a cheap $500 bachelor's degree

    There are "own degree" Bachelors, yes, but I don't know how common they are. I found one for a theology degree; the link is posted on the forum here somewhere. It didn't look any cheaper than any other Spanish degree but I don't know if the same holds true for other own degrees. I expect the main difference is acceptance criteria. Like the "own degree" doesn't require entrance exams but the Universitario degree does, or something along those lines.

    Well, maybe yes, but if it is accepted is of course a completely other question...

    LOL, Bachelors+Masters Propio = ENEB Masters & MBA combo for $260 USD on Groupon! It's been evaluated as an RA Bachelors+Graduate Certificate, you can always add in this as a secondary measure for 150 Euro and you've got all that for under $500. Easy as - easy peasy!

    May even go a faster route and attempt to be admitted to ENEB based on your CV. According to them they will consider it IF you have enough experience in business. From there you could get the ENEB Master's degree, then get an RA Bachelor's evaluation (ECE) or the RA Graduate Diploma/Certificate evaluation (IEE), or the U.S. non-accredited Master's evaluation (WES) and then apply to American Master's programs or the few Doctoral programs that might accept you based on one of those evaluations (particularly the latter two).

    That's the crazy thing about these variable evaluations. You could find yourself finishing up these programs fast and someone who has atleast two or three years in college could find themselves getting ENEB degrees and having them evaluated up to a Bachelors, Graduate Certificate, and Masters in a very short amount of time. Play your cards right and you could be someone who has effectively earned all of these degrees in less than a year like some do with CLEP exams.

    I wish more competency-based programs and low-cost programs like the ones we've discussed were more well-known when I was studying. Sure would've saved me a ton of money and time. I never got too deep into CLEPing, but I did take a number of challenge exams and some other forms of alternative credit and did save some money and time so I guess I can't complain too much.

    I have a very bad experience with Agencia Universitaria Doctrina Quálitas and their associated school Eudes Universitas.

    I enrolled for their master in LGBT, human rights and gender equality.
    We had to write a small thesis to receive the degree.

    I wrote the thesis but as there was no option to upload it in the portal, I sent it to the teacher via email.
    She told me that I shouldn't send it to her via email but upload it in the portal. I explained that the portal wasn't giving me that option (probably not been set to '' open '') on their side.

    She ignored me.

    Marketcursos ignored my request to grade it via email.

    Now I paid 250 euro and won't be receiving anything because these Spanish people are super stubborn and if you don't do it their way, despite their way not being possible, they just ignore you.

    A true rip off.

    I put in the work, learned all the material, made the capstone and don't receive a grade because their portal isn't giving me the option to upload the task and they don't recognize the problem.

    I'm doing a chargeback.
    Sad, because I would have loved to have received a grade and my degree.

    I believe this is a scam.

    That does sound frustrating. Are they connected in some way to Groupo Tarraco, or was this more of a general note to be wary of propio?

    It is frustrating. I'm so disappointed.
    I made the entire work in Spanish, had it reread by a Spanish native speaker who thought it was really good.
    I submitted it and they just don't care.
    Their portal doesn't allow me to upload the work. It simply doesn't give me that option. So my only option was sending it by email. But they don't want to understand that.
    They keep telling me that I can't send it through email but that my work is good. They don't want to acknowledge that the portal is responsible for the technical difficulty and not me.
    They just ignore it.
    Spanish people can be so stubborn.
    They want it their way and simply don't want to acknowledge that the problem is on their side and not on mine.

    Honestly, even if I got my money back I would still be disappointed.
    I put in all the work and send it to be graded only to be treated this way.

    They offer the same courses as Grupo Tarracao.
    The certificates are the same through agencia universitaria doctrina quálitas
    They belong to the same '' group ''.

    I gave them a warning just now that I want my work to be graded or that I will take recourse via PayPal customer protection.
    Let's see if that helps.

    Wow, that would have been an interesting school to go to and get some research done for another propio as a hobby with a similar cost to ENEB. Sorry for your experience and I hope things get worked out.
