Miscommunication.

Think I'm going to just go on read only here and stop posting.

It helps if you reply to the person and include their post so we know what specifically you're responding to. There were some comments between your post and theirs. Go check out the grad section. There's a whole area about grad schools. It's easy to spend hours on there checking things out. 

My post asking the accreditation question was right after he posted the link. There were no comments between mine and his.
Thank you, I'll go to the grad section.

I feel you. Makes for a much more enjoyable experience, imo.

since there is a thread about both degrees here I will ask here, so my wife is planning on transferring to UMPI:
what's the difference between a BLS degree in Management and a Bachelors of Arts in Business Administration?

Why would you pick one after the other one?

Thanks,

Liberal Studies is not going to be as targeted as a business degree. The business degree will cover more business topics.

It depends heavily on exactly what your wife wants to do with her degree but the BLS is probably better for entrepreneurs or people who intend to immediately get either the UMPI Master's or an MBA from somewhere else. A BABA is for someone who needs/wants to work for a few years before continuing on to their Master's at UMPI or elsewhere.

Thank you, My wife is currently working for one of the major financial service corporations, that facilitate processing payments.
So not quite sure if a Business Degree is better for her, she just wants to finish this year so she can get a promotion. she currently has like 92 credits+. All from a University that she's currently attending.

Does anyone know if she can apply and get a degree audit for both?

I think she can ask for a degree audit for both. Personally, I would tend to lean toward the business degree because that's more likely to be viewed as more professional in the business world. But if she intends to go for a Master's degree somewhere, the Master's will be the one that actually matters.

I had the choice of the BA in Business Administration or the BLS with a minor. I picked the BLS because I could complete it faster and with fewer courses. I already have an AAS in Business Administration. I ended up completing 3 minors in my BLS - Management Information Systems, Project Management, and Management. There's 2 other minors available as well - Accounting and Education. The BA in Business Administration has a concentration. There's a few options for the concentration as well.
