    Singapore Business School offers MBA for $490.00. Their accreditation list seems to be bogus as well. Does anybody know anything about this school?

    "
    SBS gives 83% scholarship until May 22, 2020.

    MBA degree for 490 USD (instead of 2,990 USD)."

    This is an old trick - they are members of this business education society - but they are calling membership accreditation. It is certainly not accreditation, especially in the sense that we use the word here - and I think they probably know that.

    They are members of the Asian society, and calling membership accreditation. They also show an accreditation certificate from the American Association of Business Education. I got one hit on Google - from the SBS site itself. Outside of this school, I could find no record of the um.. accreditor. Are we done here? I think so.

    Then again, any school with a testimonial from the late musical celebrity JAMES BROWN could be this papa's brand-new bag, any day! Oops, wrong James Brown!
    $490, no bachelor's required, four months and you graduate, fictitious accreditor and above all, the wrong James Brown! Kill me now! "Please, Please, Please," as the "hardest-working man in show business" might have said.

    "Unh!"

    Why - I don't know, but I finished up by checking the two accreditation certs from The International Association of Business Schools and The Asian Business education Certification Body. Both were one-hit wonders on Google - don't appear to exist outside of this school. (Lots of places described as international associations of B-schools, e.g. AACSB - but none with that name.)

    Can I log off, now?

    Interesting finds...I looked at their sample course, it seems a bunch of ex-pat traveling to Asia and decided to open an Internet business college. All the instructors look like they are all in the 20's. This reminds me of all the FAKE GURU out there on Social media and YouTube.

    I dunno. The English on the site was decidedly Asian-flavoured, peppered with a couple of Americanisms that were inappropriate in that place - e.g. "wanna enrol now," or similar. Singapore is -in general- a good place for business education - a lot of sharp, success-oriented people, most of whom speak English properly..
    The Westerners shown were probably all models doing stock photo work , likely from US or UK.

    And I'm sure most of those Western models have never been to Asia in their lives. Photos shot in London, NY or Spider Breath, Montana and bought from a stock agency by locals running this place in a back room in Singapore.

    Having traveled to and within Montana for the past 25 years, I truly hoped I would learn more about this Spider Breath. But alas....

    There's always Eight Mile Saddle, Free Deal, and our local haunt up there, Happy's Inn. (Really, Happy's Inn is a place, not just a convenience store with some cabins.)

    Sorry to disappoint, Rich. As you no doubt realize, Spider Breath is fictional. Perhaps my imagination was spurred by the semi-delirium of the current lockdown- which is a little easier to endure now. For the first time in 27 years online, I have internet at home - and a Linux laptop, the best computer I've ever had.

    Anyway, I'm glad you have happy memories of Montana. Great place, from all I've heard and read. Years ago, I had friends from Alberta. Like most Canadians, they lived less than 75 miles from the US border and Montana was their favourite destination.

    My wife grew up there, born in Kalispell and raised in Libby. It's two states, really. There's the mountainous western section that contains the Continental Divide. Then there's the prairies on the west, which look more like the Dakotas they border. My experience is exclusively in the former. We own a small house on a lake up there, but we're selling it. We just can't get up there enough to use it properly. It's in escrow and closes in a few weeks. We're going up there one more time before closing to say goodbye to it.
