    Hi everyone,

    I ran across this school for the first time, and since I've never heard of it before felt compelled to throw it on here for the wolves ;)

    They seem to have all levels of higher education relating to business, it's distance Ed, their tuition is really low, and it's even accredited by NEASC... so it seems interesting that I've never seen people discuss it's programs on degreeinfo.

    National Graduate School of Quality Management

    Any experience?

    $662.50 per credit for a doctorate seems low to me... especially since my MA was in the $700 range per credit. I guess that I don't know how that compares to most DBA programs.

    I can't remember if there are any cheaper DBA programs, but I've seen several other doctoral programs that are in the $300-500 range. Valdosta State University's DPA is $285 per credit hour.

    Here are a few other online DBA tuition rates that I could find on the first page of Google.

    Washington Univ. in St. Louis - $1,450 per credit hour - DBA in Finance Tuition and Financial Aid | Olin Business School

    University of Wisconsin-Whitewater - $1,200 per credit hour - DBA Tuition - University of Wisconsin - Whitewater | Online MBA - Graduate Programs - Business School - Wisconsin, USA | University of Wisconsin-Whitewater

    NCU - $2,487 per course (assuming $829 per credit hour for a 3 credit course) - Online University Tuition | Northcentral University

    Saint Leo University - $850 per credit hour -

    Walden University - $880 per credit hour - Doctoral Degree | Online DBA Degree | Walden University

    Anyway... $662 per credit hour for a DBA seems pretty low to me. Then again, I'm not a business person.

    I think the tuition is very reasonable, but I wouldn't call it cheap. Wilmington University's DBA is about $9000 less.

    I never said that it is "cheap"... I just said that it is "low."

    $9000... that's cheap.

    I stand corrected.

    The Wilmington University DBA currently clocks in at $30,240. The NGS DBA is just under $39,750, so it's a big difference if the schools otherwise meets one's needs the same, but it's still on the low end specifically for DBA programs at regionally accredited schools.

    I really like their program. I also like Tennessee Temple's PhD. They're NA, but the program seems more interesting and it is less expensve. However, the OP was interested in a DBA.

    Their BS is interesting - a 30 unit base over one year. Looks like this would make a great second bachelor degree. People with a quality background or education are always needed, both by technical and by service organizations.

    The DBA would have suited me fine a decade ago but I have no need these days.
