    It was much more than an additional 6 units(54-60 units). They are making me re-take MBA courses such as business ethics, added more stats courses, and other dissertation credits. That's why I might as well search around for a new program. Over the past 4 years there might be something else out there that is more appealing or interesting. New programs seem to pop up all the time.

    This might be normal. Many schools ask you to retake MBA courses if the ones you took are old or if you did not get a good grade.
    As for stats, this is a doctorate degree, what kind of credible doctorate you can find that has no stats?
    I think NCU might just be trying to get credibility by asking the same as other schools.

    They used to require one stats course (which is what I had to take) but now require 3:
    Advanced Business Statistics Course
    Qualitative Methods
    Quantitative Methods

    Wow, how long were you gone, only 2 months? They are treating you like it was 2 years. The program was quite good there so you would end up learning quite a lot, but it is the most uncaring school I have ever attended.

    It looks like you were put on a specific program and then switched you to a new one for some reason. Perhaps you took longer than normal to complete the program and they had to do the switch. I would think that the student should know in advance that he or she needs to show specific progress before the switch is done. It happened to me also, the DBA program at USQ changed and I was infomed that I needed to finish certain units before certain date or would need to take more units as the program changed.

    Sorry, I was not clear. I only took the one class and did not need to take anymore. My program never changed in the 6 years I have been enrolled. For incoming students, 3 stats classes are required.

    No. Same program. I have only been in the doctorate program 4 years. So, I never came close to the maximum time.
