Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Northcentral University PhD (Should I do a Master's first)? UNISA has a lot of graduates working as full time faculty around the world. A PhD from UNISA is respected. NCU is a small for-profit school that has been in business for little time. There is no indication that NCU has a bad reputation. However, there is little evidence of full time faculty using a NCU degree compared with UNISA. I posted once a list of UNISA PhDs working in the US. There was a case of a UNISA PhD working as full time faculty at Wharton business school.
