    It’s all about rather or not you are a good fit for the employer and as long as you make a good impression, you are fine if you meet the qualifications of the job. The degrees don’t matter as much as the relationships you’ve built throughout your career.

    Most of the activity of Canadian community colleges is certificates, diplomas, and continuing education that often don't articulate to degree credit, although some do, and Canadian community colleges increasingly offer a few degrees.

    The instructor tadj mentions teaches in a Supply Chain and Operations Management diploma program. Looking at a recent hiring posting for SCOM faculty at Conestoga, no degree is required. "Bachelors degree or MBA with a focus on Supply Chain or Operations would be an asset."

    I respect the man's accomplishment. At the same time, I don't want consumers to draw the wrong conclusion from an international category mistake. He teaches in a non-degree vocational program and his teaching position appears to require no degree.

    Thanks for the clarification. I know all about these differences, but the info may be helpful to non-Canadians.

    Another thing I like here. This accomplished person, with Isabel 1 degrees from Spain actually speaks Spanish, Portuguese and English, all with native proficiency. That's unlike most ENEB grads I've heard about. Felicidades, señor. ¡Usted es un campeon! (Congratulations sir. You the man!)

    That begets the interesting question of how many people earn a degree through ENEB in a language other than English. Do they offer similar programs in Spanish and/or Catalan?

    As a point of interest, one can graduate from Keiser University, a regionally accredited school in Florida, without speaking a lick of English, and I would be awfully surprised if there weren't other US schools where that's the case.

    I'd be dismayed, if there aren't. 42.5 million people in the US have Spanish as their native tongue. I'm sure there are many more who have developed proficiency and might like the thought of earning a degree in Spanish. Looks like there's room for way more than one school, here. Might be a smart move for some schools struggling financially because of dwindling enrolment.

    They must. Their complete site, with all program descriptions etc. is available in Spanish. I just looked at it and they say 32% of their grads are South American, 10% North American and 52% are European. That tells me they must be offering degrees in Spanish. After all, the degrees are from Spanish Universities. It's not like they're targeting 100% Anglo North Americans.

    And didn't some people report that they were doing these degrees in Spanish, using Google, Deepl etc. because they were not very familiar with the language? I thought for some reason that ALL ENEB sourced degrees were taught and tested in Spanish. No?

    Catalan? Didn't see a word, although this is Catalan country. You want Catalan, Google "Universitats" not "Universidades."
    You'll find 'em.:)

    I worry about that having attended a foreign university: worried about coming across like a fraud. But it was a British school, so as long as people don't seeing me eat good food or see my straight teeth, I should be okay.

    I tease.

    I made 7 trips to Leicester. It is a charming place and I would love to retire there. Of course, you would always be able to find me at the Walkabout Pub just off Granby Street. (Because, you know, an Aussie pub in the UK, right?)

    I was tempted, but never actually did, purchase their MBA program in Spanish when it was cheap on Amazon:

    For a time, it was cheaper than Groupon. And you get some sort of physical documentation!

    Kind of sad I didn't get it when it was available.

    Still available on the site. "Nuevo," they say. -- But it's 349 euro now. Not as cheap as before, no doubt - but still doable for a whole lot of people.

    What site? ENEB? I specifically wanted the physical stuff. I don't think you get that directly on the ENEB site, even if purchasing at full price. :D

    The Amazon link you gave in your post. Click on buying options. "Ver todas las opciones de compra." it opens the 349 euro offer. It says "entrega" (delivery) 11.24 euro. So there must be something physical. Wasn't this link where you learned it was a physical content option?

    You're right, you can still buy it on Amazon! I missed that. It used to be a direct add-to-basket thing.

    I see. In this case, I think it would be wise to see if the "Physical" option is still part of the package. I read the blurb on Amazon (Spain) and it was all "learn on our Metaverse" stuff. No mention of any other method. It also seems they can advertise in ways they can't in US. For instance "1500 jobs available now - our grads are 90% employed." That doesn't go over well, in N. America.

    You don't want to pay 11.24 euro for delivery and find your package is just a bunch of enrolment forms.
