    Full of degree mills but they seem to have worked for him given his present position with the government. They might blow up on his face at some point but by then he would have casehed a lot of tax payers money, may be enough to pay for the mills plus some extra profits. Rushmore and other mills profit from the ignorance of many people around the world. This reminds me to the few professors that I met in Mexico with doctorates from Pacific Western University, they were ranked at the same level as professors with Mexican doctorates. I wonder how the other professors would feel if they were to find out that these PhDs were "mail order" degrees.

    By the way, I want to thank the British for the terms "dodgy" and "wanker"

    Policy Advisor in Afghanistan with KWU degree

    Is it any wonder that we are having the problems that we do in Afghanistan? Why don't they just hire some fraud with a Knightsbridge University Ph.D. to run the whole show? Maybe "Dr." Neil Hayes or Quinn Taylor Jackson can provide some direction on the counter-insurgency problems Allied forces are having? What about "Dr." Richard Hoyer or the Randcocks? :mad:

    I just read through all that. Wow... you know, if someone were going to put that much work into a page like that, why not put forth some work and get an actual degree?

    This is from Ashworth University

    Kathy McCollister, B.A., Columbus University
    Kathy is a widely recognized educator who has presented more than 800 early childhood workshops throughout the U.S. She has trained early childhood professionals for many years.

    Are they confusing it with the legit Columbus State University?

    Well I email asking from clarification about this person.

    Ashworth apparently doesn't check their applicants too closely. That same page reveals faculty member Tango R. Hill, who claims a Ph.D. from Berne University, an unaccredited, very dubious school to say the least.

    With this in mind, "Dr." Hill has apparently morphed Berne University into "Bernelli University" on her personal website;

    My favorite is Dr Oliver Schwabe, DBA

    Both MBA and DBA from the degree mill known as Fairfax University. Jones International is an RA University and don't understand how they keep him as core faculty. He doesn't list his BS but wonder if even has one so for all we know the guy can be a high school graduate teaching doctoral students at a RA University.

    Isn't there supposed to be a "doctoral glut"? Why on earth are these seemingly legitimate schools hiring these train wrecks as faculty members? :(

    Wonder how DBA students at JIU feel about this, they are paying 40-50K for a DBA being taught by a guy that doesn't seem to have any formal education.

    Other successful Fairfax alumni are:

    WOW:saeek:

    At one point when I started my studies at the undergraduate level, I was thinking of doing the same thing this guy did with the associate degree(get a bunch of them in different areas of specialization), but change my mind went ahead to finish the BBA. :bigeyes2:

    I could not imagine how much he might have in student loans with those Capella certificates and PhD in progress. The positive side - no degree mills! He would look "normal" if it was listed as just something like:

    Capella University - Doctorate of Philosophy (PhD) in Organization and Management (In Progress)
    Regent University - Master of Business Administration (MBA)
    University of Alaska Fairbanks - Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA)
    Fort Hays State University - Bachelor of General Studies (BGS)
    Excelsior College - Bachelor of Science (BS)
    Tyler Junior College - Associate of Arts (AA)/ Associate of Applied Science (AAS)

    So he has more degrees than a thermometer. But does he have more degrees than a circle?

    If you look at his "wish list" he might be working on that!
