All, but especially military and prior-service folks, I have a friend who will be finishing his AA in Pre-Business Administration from the local community college this spring. It is his intention to continue on to BSBA, and possibly an MBA. We were chatting this morning about what he hopes to do, and the Navy's HSCP program (http://www.millsaps.edu/_resources/author_files/CareerCenter_NavyHSCP.pdf) in Healthcare Administration came up as a possibility, since it would pay him a decent salary while he was in graduate school, then he would spend three years active duty as a Naval officer gaining practical experience in Healthcare Administration. If you were targeting this program, where would you choose to finish your undergrad degree? Would you target one of the Big 3, so that you could finish quickly and get on with the process of applying to b-school, or would you target a state school (in this particular case, most likely East Carolina University) hoping to get an edge in the applicant pool? My friend works full-time, so he is expecting to finish the undergrad degree through a distance/online program before going on to attend b-school on campus. He has already passed several CLEP exams on the way to the AA degree, so he is comfortable earning credit by exam. Any advice would be appreciated!
