The DBA from the B&M is the better choice. You will less likely to have cognitive dissonance after you enrolled at an online version of a B&M than at a for profit purely virtual university. I agree with many of the members than online learning will become main-stream. However, I differ, in that the need/gap (programs availability and convenience) that virtually schools has filled in education is now being met by B&M. Thus we are likely to see a major shakeup in virtual schools where the main source of competition is not from virtual schools but from B&M. The free market is akin to natural selection, only the fittest will survive. Thus virtual schools will need to offer something more attractive than just program availability and convenience to compete and stay in business. Price. Lowering prices is just delaying the inevitable. We are going to be having less virtual schools. Stay away from virtual universities. Go B&M. I am the prophet of doom.
