What are the best universities that offer online bachelor degree?

by on August 15, 2018
A degree in marketing serves really well for people looking to set foot in the financial world. This degree will prepare for you organizational management and also help you in understanding the core concepts related to marketing such as consumer behaviour.

When searching for a good online bachelor’s degree in marketing there are a few things that you should keep in mind:
  • Opt for courses that are well-rounded and will later help you in deciding on your specialization.
  • Make sure that the university offering the online degree in marketing is an accredited one and not a hoax set-up that will drain of your finances.
  • Finally, if you are going to take up a job along with the course, make sure that you put enough hard work into the process of learning.
California Baptist University Online and Professional Studies (CBU Online) is one such university. In fact, CBU Online ranked 23rd in the US in a survey conducted by US News & World Report for best online bachelor’s programs 2015.

Your best bet by far is to stay in the Cal State system. It is easy to research the various campuses and programs, maybe an hour or two worth of work. Transferring from Northridge to DH or another campus should be fairly straightforward. When you transfer outside of the California system, you run the risks of (a) not having all your courses transfer and (b) having to complete more than a year at the new school.
I assume, by the way, that you have already checked and Northridge does not have the program you want online.
Plan B, look at other public systems in the same region as California. Arizona State U. and Governors Western U. come immediately to mind. Both have well respected online programs.

Can I do an MBA without having a bachelor's degree?

by on August 15, 2018
Even though the official admissions policy typically states that a bachelor’s degree is required, the fact is that many top-tier MBA programs can and do make exceptions.  In our 16 years of helping a wide variety of applicants achieve their bschool dreams, The MBA Exchange has been successful with all 5 past clients who lacked undergrad degrees. Collectively, they gained admission to Wharton, Columbia, Chicago, Darden, London Business School, IMD and other leading programs. 

In addition to the stellar essays and glowing recommendations produced by degreed applicants competing for MBA admission, those individuals who lack a college diploma must present the following to make their case:

·       A credible, compelling explanation of why earning an undergraduate degree was not possible.

·       Hard evidence of quantitative competence, primarily demonstrated by a GMAT above the school’s median score.

·       Exceptional personal and professional achievements, attributes and experiences that align with the school’s priorities and promise to add value for classmates and alumni.

·       A deep, evident passion and a well-defined need for immersion in a full-time MBA program (vs. part-time or EMBA).

·       A 1-on-1 rapport with a senior member of the admissions committee, established and maintained before the application is submitted, who can serve as a champion for the applicant.

So, even if you lack an undergrad diploma, the opportunity to earn a top MBA is still very real.  As our clients would attest, thoughtful planning, tireless implementation and sheer determination can overcome this hurdle.  

Master of Business Administration (MBA) is one of the most popular business related courses in the world today. Individuals coming from varied background; Science, Commerce, Arts pursue a degree in MBA who wish to work in a business sector. This course helps in developing knowledge of managerial skills, which allows them to manage all the aspects of business related settings.
Eligibility criteria
As the name suggests, Masters in Business administration is a post graduate program that can be pursued after completing graduation in any field. The minimum eligibility criterion for admission is at least a 3-year bachelor's degree (UGC recognized)with at least 50 per cent marks or equivalent.
The better pathway to pursuing an MBA is to go through the BBA route. Since BBA is a managerial course, it will equip you with better skills and knowledge needed to crack the entrances and pursue an MBA. However, you can pursue this field irrespective of the stream you have. You need to crack entrance examinations like CAT/ MAT/XAT/ SNAP, etc. to pursue MBA for a top notch B-School. 
The first year of MBA is common across all specializations but in the later semesters you can choose your specialization from varied options such as Human Resource, Operations, Marketing, Finance, Entrepreneurship, etc. In order to get through a top B-School you need to score 98 and above percentile

What is the best online computer science Bachelor's degree program?

by on August 15, 2018
Just about everyone you ask will give you a different answer to this question, but the best colleges consistently come up. GradLime used seven of the most widely-used lists of online CS degrees and data from the National Center for Education Statistics to build a more objective list of the top online bachelor in CS degrees. (It’s really easy to compare programs on that list, too.)

Oregon State University ranked high on five of the seven lists we used, and it had the highest average ranking on all of them. (Plus someone else recommended it here using different lists!)
That’d be my recommendation, but it still depends on what “best” means to you. We also highlighted some of the key factors that might make one program more appealing than another.
There are no great (top tier) US colleges or universities that offer completely-online degree programs. It’s very difficult at best to offer these, and to ensure quality… someone recently asked me a question about why online programs at identical schools have lower admissions or degree requirements, and the simple answer is that, while I don’t know, it’s not a good sign.
Here’s a related question I answered: Is Florida Institute of Technology worth the price for an online BS in Computer Information Systems. It’s $510 per credit hour. Is $60k ridiculous?
The answer here is that $60,000 for four years of education is not ridiculous. As an international student, you would be hard-pressed to find a less-expensive option. The best bargains in education (with the exception of the handful of schools that charge no tuition) for middle-income students are public colleges and universities, but these schools charge international students tuition that’s comparable to private colleges and universities.

That’s the real reason to start such a program: cost. As an international student, you will spend a great deal of money on a US education. I’m assuming that you do not already have an undergraduate degree; if so, do NOT pursue another. The safest thing you can do would be to prepare for the degree by working on your writing skills (you will have to take writing-intensive courses and virtually all students need to improve their writing skills), taking math classes (just free Khan Academy stuff), and learning some programming basics. This will ensure that your time in the US is well-spent.
If you feel you must have some coursework completed, you could try for a program like Florida Tech’s, but there are no guarantees that you will be able to transfer the credits to another school. You might decide that’s an ideal program to continue when you come to the US; then it might be a reasonable idea to start.
I cannot speak to the merit of Florida Tech’s program, but they appear to be a solid school, and they are not-for-profit, which is key.

What is the best online university for Bachelor's?

by on August 15, 2018
I started my business in this space based on the troubles i faced doing distance education. Here are my findings.
I would limit my discussions to the Employed person who is seeking a bachelors.
The best online degree is the one which is highly suitable for an employed person should have

  1. Access to live classroom through online medium : The Student should be able to access live sessions or download these lectures at his leisure. The employed person cannot study on his own through books.
  2. Focus on learning and application instead of theory : The courseware should be designed to help him apply the knowledge he has gained.
  3. Accredition : The degree should be recognised by the governing body.
  4. Specialisation : There should be scope to specialise in the subject of his interest. Online degrees have high variety of courses catering to new age businesses. Traditionally college cannot quickly adapt to these since they have legacy issues.

Is it a good idea to pursue an online degree at the Grand Canyon University? Is it a respected university?

by on August 15, 2018

The university is accredited with the HLC (Higher Learning Commission) which is a regional accrediting body. In addition, all other programs that need accreditation have them. The campus is growing by leaps and bounds and has 19,000 students attending the ground campus and 90,000 total with online attendance. They cannot build fast enough. Some say the campus is 100 acres but the school owns more than 400 acres. The academics are rigorous. Most people who attend, I have found enjoy the programs.

The reviews give the school 4 stars on Niche as well out of 7981 reviews by university students. The overall grade for the university is B+ on Niche. I know several people attending and they really like the school. My wife and two daughters attend and I attend the doctoral program and am in the dissertation process. We are all in the online program. I can attest to the rigor and expectations of the school that they demand academic scholarship. Another friend of mine attends the online program and my twin brother just earned his MPA there online and they both like the school. If online degrees are so frowned upon, I wonder why some of the more prestigious universities are offering more online programs such as Columbia, Johns Hopkins, Northwestern, Duke, Penn State, Rutgers, and Purdue who is in the process of buying Kaplan University.
The graduates of the university have had good things to say about the school. I have been to the campus twice for residencies and the campus is big, modern, and beautiful. Instructors there are also on the cutting edge of the things shaping the economy today. One instance would be evening courses taught by professors on the development and use of blockchain technology for business. There are also communications the university put out showcasing the various advances in the school. There is a lot of community involvement and revitalization projects taking place through student volunteerism. I would say that it is a respected school.

If you decide to attend, you will be getting a solid education from a regionally accredited university that has had notable alumni, and PhD, EdD, DBA and etc. professors who are professional in my opinion. The education will be what you put into it. They are also constantly monitoring courses and designing them to meet today’s standards. That is my $.02. I hope it helps.

How do I choose engineering major?

by on July 03, 2018
That’s right. Most students and parents seem to be very focused on  getting in to the “best” branch (Computer Science, Electronics &  Telecommunications, Mechanical, Chemical, Civil, etc.) Everybody wants to get into the “top” branch. Everybody wants to know which branch has the best “scope” in the future.

This is misguided. There are a number of reasons why the branch doesn’t matter all that much:

  • If you study in a good college, all branches have “scope”. There are successful businesses and well-paying jobs in all  disciplines, including civil engineering, and chemical engineering. And  the vast majority of computer science graduates in the country do not  have decent jobs (because there are so many of them!) If you study in a  bad college, a good branch is not going to help you. Also, so called  “good” branches with lots of “scope” tend to be over-crowded, because  everyone is entering that field. And finally, nobody really knows which  branch will have the most “scope” 10 years from now. (When I did my  Engineering, my friends took Computer Science in VJTI because they  couldn’t get into more sought after branches like E&TC and  Mechanical!)
  • Changing of field is very common amongst engineers. Just looking at my batchmates, I know metallurgical engineers who are  in advertising agencies, mechanical engineers who are into banking and  finance, chemical engineers working on Bollywood movies, and computer  scientists in the insurance industry doing non-computer stuff. What  branch you get your degree in is forgotten within 5 years of graduating.
  • What branch the student is interested in, is irrelevant. This is a big one. 12th standard students tell me, “I am more  interested in Computers. I don’t like Mechanical.” Frankly, in 12th  standard, you have no clue what any particular field involves. If for a  field, hundreds of colleges in the country are giving engineering  degrees in that field, then almost by definition, that field has  interesting and cool work going on all over the world. If you find that  field boring, then, the most likely explanation is that you’ve been  taught that subject by a bad teacher. My guess would be this: any  subject that you find very interesting was probably taught to you by a  good teacher, and for every boring subject, there’s probably a bad  teacher of that subject sometime in your past. A good professor in any  branch can make the branch come alive for you.

I am not asking you to ignore the branch entirely. All I’m saying is  that give it a little less importance than you are currently giving it.

College does matter

The original IITs, and BITS Pilani, are clearly better than other  engineering colleges. Most NITs are better than most state engineering  colleges (except the top state colleges). Top state colleges (e.g. COEP, VJTI, PICT) are clearly better than the second-tier engineering  colleges. And so on. (Unfortunately, I don’t really know how good or bad  the new IITs are. You’ll need to make that judgement on your own.)

It’s fashionable to say the college doesn’t matter. And it is very  common to trot out examples of students from terrible colleges who have  succeeded in life. But that’s flawed logic. Students who succeed inspite  of being in a bad college, are probably succeeding in spite of the  college, not because of the college. And probably would have done even  better if they had been in a better college.
Better colleges have better systems of education, better professors,  and better “resume value” (which, whether you like it or not, is a  factor for a long, long time.) Also, in better colleges, you have better  classmates. This matters in the short term (because better classmates  means more influence of friends who are interested in the right things),  and the long term (better “network”).

So, here’s my (controversial) advice: if you are getting a not-so-good branch in a very good college, vs. a good branch in a not-so-good college, you should definitely choose the not-so-good branch in the very good college.  I would definitely pick Metallurgical Engineering in IIT-Bombay, over  Computer Science in Cummins, Pune. If the colleges are sort-of-comparable, then go  for the “better” branch (for whatever definition of “better”). For  example, if you have Mechanical Engineering in COEP, and Computer  Science in VIT, then go for VIT – because althought COEP is better than  VIT, it is not all that much better.

Note: I am not saying that you’re screwed if you get into a bad  college. There are enough examples to prove that good, motivated  students can shine from anywhere. All I’m saying is that if you have a  choice, then choose better college over better branch. If you get into a  bad college, then work hard, ignore your professors, and try to get  guides/mentors/projects from industry (right away, not just in the last  year).

City also matters

To a large extent, success in life is not simply about academic  knowledge. It is also about a whole bunch of other factors – what we  call “exposure”. This involves all kinds of things – like interactions  with industry, various (non-academic) activities that you indulge in in a  city, seeing the various interesting and different things that people  are doing in the city, opportunities of getting involved in various  initiatives, and generally “smartness” (as in “The Bombay exposure has  really made him smart.”)

So, doing a degree in Pune or Bombay, is, in my opinion, clearly better than doing it in a college in Amravati.

Also, please get out of your parents’ house. Stay in a hostel, or a  rented flat with a bunch of your classmates, or something. That will  propel you into the real world, give you some maturity, and the ability  to deal with all kinds of issues that you need to deal with, when you  are no longer staying under a protective cover provided by your parents.  This is an important part of your education at this stage.

Engineering vs other fields of study

Frankly, I am not qualified to give advice on whether you should do  Engineering or something else. If you find that you’re interested in  some “alternate” career (e.g. photography, movies, music, art, design, whatever), here are some thoughts that you might find helpful:
  • Try to find out which are the top institutes in the country where  you can get a degree or certificate or whatever it is that helps with  learn the field that you’re interested in. Then find out what it takes  to get admission to that institute and how much it costs. And then make a  detailed plan as to how you could actually do it. This will  significantly improve the chances that you’ll be allowed to do it, and  also that you’ll succeed in your chosen career. I would love to see more  and more students in India follow this path.
  • If you can’t get into one of the top institutes, maybe you should  listen to your parents? It’s difficult to justify a risky career move on  the basis of a mediocre education in that field.
  • I find that most students who claim to be interested in such  alternate careers are too lazy to actually do the work needed to create  the plan mentioned in the first bullet-point. If you’re one of those  lazy bums, then you don’t really deserve to follow your so-called chosen  career. Give up, and do whatever stupid engineering degree that your  parents want you to do. Alternative career paths are for people who are  really passionate and are willing to put in the hard work it takes to  succeed.
  • If you are not really sure of what alternate career you want to  pursue, but just have a vague notion that you want to do something other  than Engineering, then you’re probably not ready for an alternative  career yet. No point in going for a off-the-beaten-path, risky path  unless you’re really passionate about something and clear about what you  want. You’ll be better off with a conventional degree, until you figure  out your passion.
  • Medical vs. Engineering: Again, I’m not really qualified to  give advice about whether you should go for engineering or Medicine.  However, note: there are many students who avoid the medical side  because they hate 10th or 12th std. biology. In this case, remember that doing a medical degree is not at all like 12th  std. biology. So, this alone is not a good enough reason for rejecting  medicine. Try to talk to, and find out more, from some real doctors what  it is like to study medicine. You should consider medicine as a career,  especially if you like people more than you like machines or software  programs. If you’re not good at maths or logic, engineering is not for  you.

My mom wants me to take and study for a sociology CLEP test. How do I know if I will even need to take a sociology course in college (I’m thinking about engineering)?

by on July 03, 2018
It depends where you plan to attend college.
I assume you plan to get a BS degree at a US university, probably in an ABET-accredited engineering program.
If you attend a state university, it will have “general education” requirements no matter what your major is. BS degrees require more hours of lab sciences; BA degrees require more humanities and/or social sciences, perhaps foreign language proficiency. The math requirements may differ as well: calculus as opposed to statistics.

You won’t need to take a sociology class in college unless you are a sociology major. You will need to take a psychology/sociology/anthropology/other social science class.
The sociology CLEP exam is considered one of the easiest. You can accrue 3 hours of college credit by taking a 90-minute test. Credit cost is about $30 per credit. It won’t affect your GPA.
Contrast that to a semester-long class at about $200 per credit, more with textbook costs and fees. You may well have to do group projects, oral presentations, research papers, midterm and final exams. Plus, if your strong point is in math/science, not English/humanities, your GPA may take a hit and you have to spent a lot of your precious study time preparing for classwork that’s not in your major.
Any credits you accrue before college matriculation will help you graduate in less time, or will free up your schedule to concentrate on your GPA, your networking, your leadership, your co-op/internship/other revenue-generating activities. CLEP tests save you money and time.
The CLEP test can show colleges that you have strengths in areas other than math/science, making you a more well-rounded candidate.

If you bomb the CLEP, you don’t show the score to colleges. You can take it again with no negative effect.
Engineers have to work with people. Taking a sociology or psych or communications class helps you work better with people. It will help your career.
Here’s a real-life example: I took two day’s worth of CLEP exams. I left with 64 hours’ credit, including 14 hours for one exam alone. With two days’ work, I left with junior standing.
