    I’m interested in what difference, if any, there is between EIU and the Bangkok School of Management and in the fact that BSM degrees are awarded by the European Global School.

    I didn't get a chance to see whether the Bangkok School of Management actually cares about responding to student inquiries. I know from first-hand experience that their French degree partner (EGS) couldn't care less about such things. Is there a real difference between EIU and EGS? It's really hard to tell without comparing the course content of both schools. You can only rely on the various website clues. EIU's MBA curriculum looks fine on the surface (I am not sure about the reality). But there is also a large difference in the tuition that you would need to pay in order to experiment with the courses of each school. At this point in time, I prefer to stay neutral concerning EIU. The relatively low tuition may provide enough of an incentive to give it a try under some circumstances. But is it worthwhile? Not clear at this point. I think that the choice of attendance could be defended, as the license enables them to grant an MBA. I am just not sure how much you would really get out of the program. Keep in mind that the European Global School curriculum is also a mystery to me. I was particularly turned off by the complete lack of communication and frequent student complaints about the moving target of their school address in Paris. Your description of the faculty adds another layer of potential problems. The same goes for the myriad of partnerships. I think it's advantageous for a school to have a real office location. In this sense, EIU's arrangement looks more appealing in terms of student protection. That does not mean that it could not be a nice mirage. We've seen that before with all kinds of institutions.

    The Philippines? I'm sure the entire State of Kentucky is mourning his departure. Rev. Dr. Academician Hill is well-known to old-timers following unaccredited schools. IIRC on Frank Bozeman's site (probably the Accreditor one) , there were pictures of RR Hill and Stephen Barnhart, who both had some significant role in the organization.

    Professor Hill? Isn't that the guy from "The Music Man"?

    Not the same guy. You may remember Rev. Dr. Academician (now Bishop) Hill from the now-dead forum. I think he posted there as TruePatriot. He was formerly known as RayRay12 but I forget which board(s) - possibly "Degreebeard" before the site was bought by Sheila Danzig, who closed the forum part down. I also remember some posts, on DD -I think - by "LatinEducation" touting a school in Panama - that may have been Hill or a friend of his who owns/owned the school. He was once US VP of WIDU -
    World Information Distributed University - a Belgian creation I'm sure you've read about, Nosborne.

    Before his ordination in the Philippines, he was widely known as the sage of Erlanger, Kentucky.

    Well, registered in Belgium, but more Russian, actually. Professor Eduard Evreinov, winner of the 2nd Lenin Prize for Science in 1957, see http://www.iia.ca/cii/

    As you say, mbwa. Yes, the beast was likely fathered by Russians. However, not only is it registered in Belgium, but this monster's procreators managed to persuade the King of Belgium to sign the proclamation or order that brought it into official existence. That, to me, makes it as Belgian as a stale, unfilled waffle. No matter. Either way, I believe some monsters and other evil beings - including the one under discussion - transcend nationality. Babayaga is Ukrainian, sure, but I'm sure she is being used here in Canada - and elsewhere - to scare little kids of Ukrainian descent into desired behavior. The Wendigo? Nah, probably strictly Canadian.

    Agreed, Prof. Evreinov is a formidable scientist and academic. I believe he was quite elderly at the time he agreed to do whatever he did for WIDU. I've always suspected there might have been a degree of blandishments and pestering - along with whatever material reward. No matter. Dr. Evreinov is not to be blamed. I do not think less of any elderly person who resigned himself, possibly under strong urging, to doing what he was told was an innocuous thing. At 76, I could do the same, except that nobody wants me to. A nonentity can hardly add value to an academic enterprise - even a so-called one.

    Well, your guess is as good as mine, but Dr Edward Roy Krishnan holds positions at all three schools, see http://www.egs.education/?page=deans-faculty
