Re: Re: NCU How can a school guarantee 100% doctorate completion rate upfront? I haven't talked to any that have said anything about this but then again I have not asked for this type of info. Likely I don't plan to teach anymore than I have been in my lifetime(only taught two classes thus far). I taught an MBA class and a programming class. Both were at solid brick and mortar schools. The MBA class only required a master's. The other class had no such requirement but it was mainly geared for entry level first year computer technology students. They didn't pay much either. The programming class was fairly fun but the MBA class was tougher to teach because the students taxed me with their lax attitudes and endless excuses. I have few misconceptions regarding external degrees. They just are not as chocked full of utility in the teaching profession. I'm OK with that because I don't plan to be a professor. If all goes well I'll retire from my company and live a happy life just growing tomatoes, harvesting knowledge, watching the Cubs, and being a grandpa.
