    Great thread, appreciate the initial info and the insights from others. Has anyone come across a similar doctoral program with similar characteristics (cost, accreditation, online) in other than in Healthcare Administration?
    Wondering if there are any others related to Healthcare (e.g. Life Sciences), or alternatively Technology, Business or Education.

    Aspen's DSc in Computer Science is $27K, their EdD is similar. (
    Taft's EdD is $20K (

    I'm going to guess that most NA doctorates are going to be in a similar price range (20-30K), and many/all of them online, but the time commitment will be longer - 3-5 years to complete.

    Edit: I might look on here and see which schools offer doctorates: if you're insistent on an NA doctorate.

    For $27K one could earn a regionally accredited doctorate in education from the University of the Cumberlands. But it would take a lot longer than a year, which I expect is the other attraction here.

    Many thanks for the super prompt response!! Not necessarily NA, so open.

    Does anyone know of a similar program but in the UK (online, etc.)?

    Yes, but Cumberlands doctorate is in leadership and Aspens Doctorates are in Education and Computer Science that tend to have better salaries than PhDs in leadership. A Doctor in CS even from an NA school can be worth more than 100K as any computer science job pays that much after few years of experience.
    Leadership degrees can have good value for administrators, executive coaches, etc too but return of investment might be lower than CS.

    Hello! Just curious to see how everyone in the VUL program is doing; I believe those who signed up for Spring should be finishing up the first half of the term. How is the program so far? How is the course material? The accreditation is perfectly fine with my employer, so I'm very interested in hearing how other students are faring in it. If any of you have feedback, please share! Thanks!
