Business PhD, not usuable throughout my career
May 14, 2010
I received my business admin PhD in 1995 but have yet to find any acceptance for it in the workplace, whether in the higher ed field or in private employment. My current employer does not recognize it or incent me for it, nor am I allowed to use it on any work stationery or communication. [Read more]

Fake Degree, KW Eagle Poop
May 31, 2012
What a total rip off this degree was. They gave me a 50% coursework reduction for life experience (that should have been my first clue it was a fake). After 6 classes and long paper that nobody even read I had my worthless KW degree in my hands! After getting turned down by a potential employer I threw it in the trash where it belongs. I went back to school got a real degree and ... [Read more]

NON-Accredited Schools are FAKE
January 27, 2012
They sent me all kinds of certification including what appeared to be a genuine accreditation certificate. It turns out they lied to me. I didnt find this out until they had all my money and I finished my courses with them. I applied for a job as a probation officer, and found out that this school was just a diploma mill that no one recognized when you want a job that requires a college degree. ... [Read more]

Unaccredited, hokey, but OK self-study CPE
February 8, 2007
Yes, I've read the fake degree testimony, yes, I know it is an unaccredited "university" and is generally ridiculed. But... for an individual course, the text wasn't too bad as a self-study continuing education item. If you leave it at that, I think you can find some value here. try finding a Doctoral Level Healthcare Admin course, the field is pretty limited. [Read more]

Got what I put into it... NOT MUCH
July 14, 2011
Received 40% "life experience" towards my DBA. Took some fairly simple repeatable exams for coursework. Wrote a long dissertation that I found very rewarding and interesting, but nobody at the University ever read it that I could tell. So an interesting experience in limited self-study, but certainly not an academic acheivement of any sort. [Read more]

I was told it was accredited
February 8, 2013
I was told when I enrolled in the school that it was accredited. I received my MBA in 2006 and am just finding out that it was not accredited. Was anyone else out there told the same thing? [Read more]

Unrecognized, Useless, & Out of Business
August 7, 2012
An unusable degree issued by an unrecognized business (should never have been called a University) that is now thankfully out of business. The only saving grace is that I was granted enough free credits for life experience that the cost wasn't too bad. Easy courses, take an exam (with or without studying) and get credit. [Read more]
