    Interesting find, Mac Juli.

    Now that we've thoroughly researched the ins and outs of degree legalities in Spain, it looks like we have a new project: Portugal.

    It'll be fun for all of us here at DI to figure out what it means for the Ministry of Labor, Solidarity and Social Security of Portugal, the Educational and Training Offer Information and Management System Department, and the Directorate-General for Education and Science Statistics to collectively approve a "Government professional level certificate".

    I was going to go to the WTF Institute, but they turned me down.

    They're misusing the term "MBA" in a way that could cause even more confusion by people communicating their involvement inaccurately.

    Doesn't stand "MBA" for "More Bucks Achieved"?! Oh...

    I decided to take one for the team and to enroll so you don't have to. I might report on my experience later. If I didn't, I might have been nicked for violating §132a of the German Penal Law. They are a little strict here.

    Best regards,

    How so? I don't see any reference to a relationship with a recognized university, which is ENEB's signature feature.

    Not even a relationship with an unrecognized University. Not a degree of any kind - real or fake. You can get "MBA-ish" online courses galore, elsewhere on Udemy, for as low as $13. No 55-page thread for these guys. (Please?)

    Well, I thought there were some common features! Similar price, a "recognized" certificate, also on the Iberian Peninsula; a provider that tries to offer a lot of goodies to keep students happy....

    Recognized as what? Continuing education, right? There seems to be a tendency for some European education providers to use 'MBA' as a rather casual term for general business education - at any level, rather than its English meaning - a Master's degree in Business Administration. That's because English-speaking countries do it, too. We have books etc. with titles of 'MBA' in this-or-that. Some of them are very good, too, but again, not degrees. We do this because we are BAD. Don't follow our example! :)

    Not another degree -- so not another ENEB.

    @Mac Juli - So far (80 years) I have never travelled to Germany with - or without - the intent to commit crimes. In case I decide to visit, please tell me what section 132a of the Penal Code covers. Then I'll know whether or not I'm tempted... :)

    Isso acontece. :) (That happens.)

    Interesting. You go to the school site - click "learn more" under the 'Executive MBA" and you're
    immediately transferred to the Udemy site. "Thou shalt have no Executive MBA before thy Udemy."

    Não, obrigado. Não é divertido para mim. Você precisa de alguém que fale português fluentemente.
    Talvez o Sr. Rodrigues da Silva o ajude.

    It's about the misuse of a lot of fancy things ... including academic degrees. You can get up to one year in jail. But the law is used very liberally here; many politicians ought to be nicked if applied with all force, so, blyat...

    Merry Christmas! What a thoughtful gift! I'd say I don't deserve it - but I probably do. Thanks, Santa Mac! :)

    What's up with people selling MBA courses on Udemy? Next, I am going to sell DBA courses on these platforms. I will have a great future; see below! :D

    That "M" it maybe upside down?

    They renamed it; the thing is called "Executive MBA Essentials Certificate of Professional Education with concentration in Management & Business Administration" now. - Well.
