Whoa there, pardner. Let's get something clear. That degree isn't being offered by the University of Maryland. It's being offered by the University of Maryland University College. This is a school within the UofM system, but separate from the UofM. The UofM and the UofM Eastern Shore are AACSB-accredited, for example. But this ain't that. UMUC isn't the UofM, which is why their DBA isn't AACSB. The UMUC isn't a "big name public school." If you take a degree from UC Davis, you didn't graduate from Cal.
