    So... Who else applied for this? Are we all starting at the same time? (Rhetorical question)

    Forgot to ask, do we do the courses in specific order? If so, we're all classmates for the courses!

    I am out. I want to do it, but synchronous meeting times would take me away from my family and we will be moving next summer. I can't wait to hear about the program.

    I may have to see if they still have any slots left under the scholarship/deal or whatever they call it...and if they accept transfer credits. I'd like to never, ever have to take Accounting again.

    Update: I received the syllabus for my first class at my university email address.

    Great! Is the synchronous part required? I want to start on June 7th but having a schedule for online classes makes it more difficult to commit. The 6 hours meetings each week is too much for me.

    6 hour meetings?

    On the Remote MBA Program page, it mentions 6 hours of remote meetings every week:

    "Students take the required courses one at a time, but in an intensive fashion: the class meets 6 hours every week remotely. Upon completing one course, they continue with the next one in the series. In this way, students will take a total of three required courses during the 7-week term."

    Yes, they are required. There are 2 scheduled 3-hour classes each week, although the Dean did tell me that professors will often cancel the second weekly meeting in favor of giving students more time for independent work.

    So, the only difference between these online courses and in person courses is that you don't have to travel to get to class. :) I'm happy about it. One thing I was always hesitant about with online/distance learning is that I enjoy the experience of being part of a class. Otherwise, I feel like I can learn any of this stuff by reading the books ony own. For my BA which was mostly tested out, I did enjoy a lot of the reading but the lack of variety of activity made it monotonous.

    I can't believe this is actually happening! It's been 7 years since I finished my BA, which was quite the saga in and of itself. Now onto phase 2 of my master plan to conquer the universe :emoji_sunglasses:

    I'm fine with that as well just have to see what time they want us to attend class to shift my work schedule. 3 hour classes do not bother me as I have done them for my other graduate degrees that were brick and mortar masters programs that required us to attend classes in person. The good thing about remote learning is I can be anywhere or doing anything and still attend , participate, and listen to the lecture.

    Well, I was planning to start on June 7th but I had to withdraw my application because of the 6 hours of videoconference each week. My schedule is very irregular and I cannot commit to that many hours a week. Good luck to the ones continuing!

    California Coast University offers an MBA for $230 a credit. If you are military, law enforcement , or work for the government you can get 10% off. Might be an alternative option. Accredited by CHEA and it is self paced. Might be a good alternative?

    Okay, kiddies, plant your butts and repeat after me . . . California Coast is not accredited by CHEA. CHEA does not accredit schools. Ever.

    Notwithstanding that I have historically considered Cal Coast a degree mill (which is an opinion I Have held for 30 years, whether y'all like it or not), they are accredited by DEAC. Much as I consider Hellenic American to be mickey mouse (which is an opinion I have held for months, whether y'all like it or not), at least they are regionally accredited.

    To compare Cal Coast with Hellenic American is not like comparing apples and oranges. As Dennis Huber used to say, it's like comparing apples and moon rocks.

    They are accredited DEAC.

    Steve is saying (in his typical unecessarily snarky and cynical way) that CHEA is not an accreditor.
