    Lansbridge University, located in New Brunswick, Canada, offers MBA and eMBA degrees via distance education. The tuition seems rather high for a DETC-approved institution. The institution is authorized as a degree-granting school by the Province of New Brunswick. The course schedule is term/semester-based.

    Overpriced and with little utility in Canada. You are paying so much for a degree that is hard to validate as most employers check the aucc.ca web site for school verification and lansbridge is not there.

    Yes, legal in Canada but not worth it given their price and unknown name in the market. An Aspen degree might be equivalent at a fraction of its cost.

    RFValve, I concur with our opinion. Aspen University would save almost USD11,000.00 based on the tuition for foreign students at Lansbridge University.

    What -- if anything -- was the connection between the Lansbridge University in New Brunswick, and the Lansbridge University in British Columbia?

    The latter was recently shut down by the BC Minister of Advanced Education.

    Apparently both Lansbridge Universities are parts of an organization known as the "Kingston Education Group", and owned by a Mr. and Mrs. Lo. Another school owned by this group was Kingston College in BC.

    The former Kingston College has been heavily criticized as a scam, and was also shut down recently. It currently appears to be the target of a class-action lawsuit.

    The former Lansbridge University in BC has been accused, among other things, of unconventional student records policies:
    Of course, things may be different at the New Brunswick Lansbridge.

    The reason for my original posting was to solicit information about the credibility of this institution. I thought the name sounded familiar, although the location was unfamiliar.
