Covid19 and accelerated degree
#1
Hi everyone. 

Does anyone think that the potential of quarantine might be a boon for the accelerated degree programs ?  I already hold a BA from a University in Canada, and it just occurred to me that in the event I have to self quarantine, rather than Netflix and Chill it might be useful to work thru some study.com and straighter-line courses and get all the leg work for a BSBA out of the way.

The one problem for me is that the Canadian dollar vs. the US dollar makes this a non-trivial amount of money.  I wish onlinedegree was available outside of the United States.

Have anyone tried Saylor Academy ?  I took a look at one of their courses once and I did not enjoy the format.

BSBA Eh? You're getting a BSBA for much cheaper than any BSBA in Canada - so, don't worry about the cost, the BSBA will pay for itself after a few months of working when you get that raise. What's your BA in and which school is it from? I recall you're in Hamilton/London area, southwest Ontario - you should have at least 66+ credits waived for your BSBA already.

If you have a test center nearby, you can get about 5+ CLEP (all their business related ones) tests out of the way for some of the BSBA requirements and then work on several Saylor.org courses, those are pretty cheap at $25/3 credits. I assume this is for the BSBA General Management or another concentration? You can get all the UL from Davar and/or Study.com

Many people have. I took one course for credit and used three others as study material for a CLEP, a DSST, and a TECEP.. Some courses are better than others, and I say it's worth trying before dismissing them out of hand, since it costs nothing to do so. However, there are other cheap and free choices these days, so many don't.
