Silly question. When these programs are looking for a Master's degree, would an MBA count? Or does it have to be a Master's in Education? I wouldn't mind looking into a Ph.D or even Ed.D in Higher Education, but I would also like to find a similar way to do a DL doctorate for a Ph. D in Business, IT, etc that isn't from a for-profit institution (Capella, Univ. of Phoenix, etc.) If it's a Ph.D, I won't mind residencies during the summer, but that whole every month thing would be difficult depending on the school.
