    I can't find any information since this school seems to be recent.

    MCA business and postgraduate school is a partner school of ENEB and of Humboldt university.

    If you graduate with ENEB you can apply for a validation from MCA.

    I have looked on their website and they seem to be non-regionally and non-nationally accredited. I think they are state-authorized only.

    They have partnerships with Italian universities from what I can see.

    Can someone from the US have a look at it and tell me their opinion about it?

    mcabschool[dot]com is their website

    It's probably more useful than an ENEB degree but not nearly as useful as ENEB's other partner degree, only because ENEB conjures images of groupon coupons, lol

    I haven't seen anything about the validation scheme, but I might apply just for giggles so I can have another 4-6 qualifications lying around, useful or not.

    Hmm, I looked at it, didn't think much of the website, it doesn't show pricing for the programs. I see their pricing for some individual courses though. With Universidad Isabel I/ENEB partnership, it is sufficient enough for me. I don't think I would bother with this program unless you have something you want from Humboldt International University, like move onto their PhD programs that they have, otherwise, I'd basically skip this as Humboldt seems just an extension of MCABschool, their website looks pretty much the same... BTW, HIU shows they're Pending Accreditation from DEAC!

    Hi Bryan,
    Do you mean MCA is under consideration for DEAC accreditation or Humboldt?
    What annoys me is that the websites are in Spanish. This is an American school. So why the Spanish you would think...

    You should close the book on this one. I would stay away from both, far away. Here are the reasons why.
    1) False advertising on both sites. MCA tries to trick you into thinking they have a US partner in HIU.
    2) HIU has a phrase they're Pending Accreditation from DEAC, but I don't even see it in the DEAC site application list.
    3) HIU shows they're internationally accredited by CIAC - Confederation of International Accreditation Commission - That's a fake one from India with a registration address in Delaware!
    4) Last but not least, they're using a dot com website for both, you can see they're just a commercial school that's registered and wanting to get your cash, nothing more than that. Verdict, they're worthless.

    UPDATE from ENEB concerning MCA Business School. MCA Business School's form on the ENEB website is giving a VBS script error when submitted and the price is not displayed. I contacted ENEB and this is their response.

    Dear Carlton,

    Thank you for your email. We have temporarily stopped our partnership with MCA Business School due to internal reasons. We are however looking to either resolve those problems with their institution, and we are also looking for new partners in the United States that our students may validate their degrees with.

    We remain at your disposal for any further information.

    Kind regards,

    Finally. It was a terrible move. I guess enough people complained to make them understand what danger they were putting themselves in. They can find a real partner. No reason to hook up with a school with no real standing in the United States.

    Crazy thing is according to ENEB students and graduates on, they recently started offering this deal again. It's still worthless unless they have state-authorization to award degrees and issue their own transcripts that translate to American grades.

    That's pretty odd. Especially considering the MCA website (mcabschool[dot]com) is ... I'm pleased to report ... GONE!

    Yep. GONE like a goniff* in the night. Hasta la vista, baby! :)

    It looks like they moved. A quick Google shows a URL that, IMO, is trying to trick students into thinking they're legit. mcaschool-edu dot com.

    At least some of their Masters claim to offer a triple degree in a similar way as the ENEB degrees themselves. Which makes an ENEB/MCA "partnership" even more bizarre.

    I just can't wait - they'll probably make it a five-bagger - a home run plus, by hooking up with that well-known Mexicostaraguan duo of Unive?sities.

    I looked at the site - appears to have been conceived furtively and in frantic haste. All English headings, over Spanish blurbs. Just who are they aiming to enrol? .... me? :) No, gracias.

    (Yawn).... Wake me up if this school ever offers a Doctorado en Placer Sexual para Todos. Otherwise, buenas noches, Grouponistas y otros "Frugaleros." zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz :)

    ENEB made the wrong decision to partner with MCA again. However, I can understand them doing it for a little extra cash and this could still be beneficial for those outside the USA in third world countries to get the validation for the small fee as many foreign employers would be thrilled to see a graduate from any USA school regardless of standing. MCA certainly is trying to trick potential students into thinking they are a legit school with the edu in their URL.

    This is not my observation.

    In some countries, it does apply. It's part of why UoPeople was so popular even before it became NA.

    That was a long time ago. My experience is that people in lower income countries are a lot more sophisticated about US accreditation than they used to be (although not to the extent of differentiating among the different ED/CHEA approved accreditors).

    I was surprised to see that the new MCA site mentions triple degrees from MCA, HIU, and now ... UCAM:

    "Los estudiantes de Máster de MCA SCHOOL, recibirán al culminar sus estudios, la titulación propia universitaria de la UCAM, Universidad Católica de Murcia."

    If true, that doesn't say much for the value of UCAM degrees.

    As recently as April 23rd, they were still advertising this partnership:

    I just did my own research and noticed that. Here is what I think is happening. The MCA Business School validation serves not only to have a document that would be signed for legal use by the Florida Department of Education in the USA but since UCAM is a validation partner, you could potentially have UCAM issue their on diploma and transcript because of their partnership with MCA which makes ENEB equivalent to a fully accredited Masters for NACES evaluators awarded through UCAM.

    This is a very strange arrangement but the setup of how this is done puts some layers between the schools and partnerships to make a few more bucks with some anonymity as well as prevent themselves from being blacklisted.
