I saw some talk about this in another thread and found it very interesting so I feel it deserves a dedicated thread. I'd like to use it to post all schools that offer this (except for mills of course) and then debate the functionality of this as well. My personal opinion is that if you are in the same career for 15 years (which seems to be the requirement) and you can demonstrate your abilities in that field then why not? I can also see the argument raised about it hurting the cause of distance learning because it surely throws some doubt into the stringency of DL programs. Couldn't the argument be that the knowledge, expertise, and experience gained in staying in the same career for 15 years surpass any knowledge gained in 4 years of school? Surely no one would argue that hands on training prepares you better for the actual job than school does. To me it doesn't matter because by the time I hit the 15 year mark (in 2 years) I will be on my way to a master's anyway. Still it is a very interesting argument to say the least. So let's post schools that allow this and post your opinions about why this is a good or bad idea. Here is a thread on Hariot Watt http://forums.degreeinfo.com/showthread.php?t=28321&highlight=master%27s+undergraduate Oh and I am curious as to how U.S. Schools and employers view this and how it is received although I am curious about other regions of the world as well.
