    What? And not get to see the clash of pretenses about unaccredited schools?!

    "It's fantastic!"

    "It's terrible!"

    Columbia Southern University www.columbiasouthern.edu offers the 61-hr. DBA online. At $295/hr. for the doctoral courses (60 hrs.) and $195/hr. for the Orientation course (1 hr.), tuition for the program totals $17,895($17,700 + $195). They are accredited by the Distance Education and Training Council.

    There was a report on another channel www.degreeboard.com/forums/Distance-Educational-Discussions-f42/andrew-jackson-university-dba-t41015 by some guy named JohnDoe that Andrew Jackson University had a proposed DBA set to be rolled out in late 2009 or early 2010. And the tuition will be sponsored. Five months later, I see no further word of this ate the AJU website www.aju.edu. Maybe some investigative sleuth can find out more.

    Hi Ted,

    Can you tell me more about this school? Are they legit? That's a low cost DBA anyway you look at it. From what I have read on their Website, you can obtain 9 credit hours towards the completion of 60 hrs. That's like getting a further 15% off!

    Can anyone speak to the quality of the school please?

    Is it legit? They are accredited by the Distance Education and Training Council. The Distance Education and Training Council is recognized as an accreditor by the United States Department of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation. That said, DETC is national accreditation and national accreditation tends to be less widely accepted than regional accreditation and hence may have less utility. But it's legit. I leave it to each reader to determine whether NA will suit his/her present and future needs.

    A minor point of clarification (for what’s its worth): I don’t believe the Indiana State University PhD in Technology Management can be considered AACSB accredited. The PhD in Technology Management falls under the College of Technology. ISU's College of Business is accredited by AACSB.

    Regardless, still a good school and good program.

    Capella University www.capella.edu offers the PhD Accounting, PhD General Business, PhD Information Technology/General Information Technology, PhD Information Technology/Information Assurance & Security, PhD Information Technology/Information Technology Education, PhD Information Technology/Project Management, PD Organization & Management/General Organization & Management, PhD Organization & Management/Human Resource Management, PhD Organization & Management/Information Technology Management, PhD Organization & Management/Leadership, PhD Organization & Management/Management Education, and the PhD Organization & Management/Project Management via short residency programs. Tuition is $4,485/quarter for the coursework phase and $3,945/quarter for the dissertation phase. The program outline seems to indicate that the dissertation phase would be 4 to 6 quarters. Since these 120-hr. programs require 20 hrs. of dissertation and 100 hrs. of coursework (25 4-hr. courses), I'm going to assume that one would likely take 2 4-hr. courses per quarter, thus taking 12-13 quarters for the coursework phase. Thus, the coursework phase, at $4,485/quarter for 12-13 quarters, would cost $53,830-$58,305 and the dissertation phase, at $3,945/quarter for 4-6 quarters, would cost $15,780-$23,760, for a total program tuition of $64,085-$81,975. They are accredited by the North Central Association.

At $740/hr. for 60 hrs., the DBA programs cost $44,400 in tuition plus $890 per 4-day residency ($1,780 for two residencies) for a total of $46,180. Tuition for the 134-hr. PhD in Applied Management & Decision Sciences is $4,280/quarter for a minimum of 8 quarters ($34,240) plus $890 per 4-day residency ($1,780 for two residencies) plus $1,325 per 6-day residency ($2,650 for two residencies) for a total of $38,670.
