Too many people with online DBAs and PhDs?

    Just plain degree mills. Don't read too much into that in all honesty.

    Define PhD mill. You could not mean degree mill in general because that would not help with tenure.

    The thing is, my Argosy degree wasn't completed online though--so perhaps some-how, in some-way, this needs to be remedied. I drove back and forth to Tampa, Florida more times in each term than I care to recount [smile]. This information is distressing to me, nevertheless. This may be the reason why I can't seem to find work. In any event, perhaps a remedy for me would be to consider Rollins College's Executive DBA program. It may be worth it.

    You might be interested in my thread below that shows how to convert a non AACSB accredited PhD or DBA into AACSB accredited doctorate in two years and a half.

    You are not alone, I have a friend with a DBA from Argosy that couldn't find a teaching job but he was able to find something as an insurance broker. His DBA is not online also but the perception is that was online because Argosy is mainly a DL institution.

    I'm trying not to read into it by asking you directly what you meant. Please, just a couple of examples of degree mills as you see them fitting your paradigm. Please?

    It looks like the program was phased out as it is not included in the new catalog:

    Study Programmes - University of Surrey - Guildford

    This is too bad as it was a good option for those wanted to convert from a non AACSB to an AACSB doctorate.

    Bottom line is that when you find a good program, you should jump on it as programs close all the time due to changes in objectives, low enrollments, etc.
