    Ed.D. in Organization Change

    The OC program focuses on the world’s changing external environments through research, understanding, and practicing the change within, between, and across organizations. Students follow a sequence-oriented curriculum through a series of 12, eight-day,seminar-style sessions held at conference facilities. These sessions are scheduled quarterly over a three-year period and are supported with online segments.

    Note that I described the EdD Educational Technology only as having some DL components.

    Thanks. I noted that. And I suggested that Pepperdine doesn't offer a DL doctorate, as we would understand it here.

    Therefore, it is NOT an online program and should NOT be promoted as such. It's great to know, however, that they are somewhat able to move beyond the narrow type of seat-in-the-butt-physical-classroom-only type of education.

    I accept with information: There are no so many online DBA or PhD programs in the US. From the ones available, Northcentral is one of the most affordable. It is RA and although you might not want to teach now, it will keep the door open for future academic employment at least as adjunct.

    It is important to note that this degree is NOT a business degree, nor is it even close. It is about four areas: research methods, sociology, macroeconomics, and human resource development. It takes a social scientist's approach to all four.

    In general potential applicants should:

    Hold a master's degree or equivalent from an accredited college or university with a GPA of 3.3 or higher
    Have taken the GMAT within the last five years (for GMAT review course information click here)
    Have at least five years of professional work experience at the managerial level
    Provide three professional letters of recommendation
    Provide a written statement (500 words or less) indicating the applicant's chief academic interests, strengths and limitations, reasons for selecting the DM Program and for choosing Walsh College
    Provide a professional resume
    Provide copies of academic transcripts
    Complete an interview (candidate evaluation) with the DM Program Director and/or the DM Program Committee member(s).

    COST Total program cost for 3 years - $52,500 (includes dissertations and registration fees) Add travel exp.

    My vote: Others are better!

    I posted this on another site:

    Nice price, assuming you can accept (a) the limitations of its accreditation, (b) its utter non-presence in academia, and (c) its former reputation (under a different name).

    At that price, however, one might wonder what they're not doing/providing?

    Not a lot of faculty information. Names and positions of a great number of their administration, but it seems they did not choose to publish bios, vitas, or even sources of degrees.

    Glad they finally made it to Atlanta, though. Throught they'd have to adopt the interim name "Interstate 85 University" or something.

    Hi, Rich! I merely seek to provide information on all legitimately accredited options for doctoral study in business administration by distance learning. I'm sure most denizens of this board are well aware of the limits of national accreditation. I'm also sure that most denizens of this board are aware of the previous activities of this school under a different name and ownership. Your objections are duly noted, sir.

    My comments were not intended to imply the esteemed Mr. Heiks somehow left things out. Rather, let's note that many readers are not yet "denizens" and may not be weighing these other factors.

    Thank you! Duly noted.

    A good option would be Lancaster University. It is AACSB, allows distance-ed, and very affordable at (20K GBP, roughly $32K for a 4 year programme). Check it out at http://www.lums.lancs.ac.uk/phd/PhDP...s/PartTimePhD/
    and don't forget to treat me to lunch or dinner if you like it :)
