First I wanted to say this site has been a wealth of information and has really helped. I am almost in my thirties and a successful business owner. I was fortunate I was at the right time and place along with my knowledge to start my business my senior year in high school. Because of that I decided that I had the tools I needed to be successful. I haven't left much to accomplish from a professional standpoint besides a degree. I am around very affluent business men and women in which I at most times am the only one without a degree. With that being said I am considering going to get my BS or BA in some type of business, preferably international business. My ultimate goal in the end would be to get my Masters from a local University. I have read on the forums and done research that I should enroll in a RA school. Since I travel out of the country every 5-6 weeks I am unable to attend classes. I read a thread about TESC and that they allow you to test out of several classes in order to speed up your degree. This really intrigued me as I am able and willing to do any type of written exam or prove that I am knowledgeable enough to earn credits in a particular field. With that all being said my question(s) are as follows: The below degree interest me as its an international study. Thomas Edison State College: International Studies How many of these credits could I earn with taking an exam? Could I earn other credits with a portfolio (Sorry if I am not using the right term, I am new)? If I tested out of the credits from the above questions, how long would this degree take? Since TESC is RA would this BA be accepted by most Universities for a Masters? I really hope I did not lose your attention. All advice is greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.
