Getting fast degree to being able to do Master in USA
#1
Hello to everyone

For those strange things in my life I never achieve my academic degree but I am an expert in my area. I can easily obtain a scholarship to do my master's degree in the USA and they have offered it to me several times; but this is only possible if I get my degree. So I'm looking for a quick way to solve this online.

Im looking for SMC University for online Bachelor in Marketing, this is a pretty dark institution, some discussions can be found in this forum about this "University" and its confusing accreditations. Some people say that its validity in the USA of this institution certificates depends of the state; im not familiar with the USA system, so i dont know if this applies to do a master later...

My main question is: I am enabled to do a master's degree in the USA if I have SMC University online Bachelor in Marketing??

My secondary question: Do any of you know another easy way to solve the situation of my degree?



Thank you in advance for all your feedback

Edit just to say: I'm not in US, im not US citizen

Am I correct that you are not currently in the US, and that you currently do not have a bachelor degree? Also, your first goal is to obtain an accredited US bachelor degree quickly so that you can take advantage of an opportunity that would allow you to attend/complete a US master degree program?

Thank you for your reply Allvia

I regret not having clarified that correctly; you are right, im not in US, im not US citizen (i will edit the original post to add this information).

You are also right about my first goal.

I've never heard of SMC University, and when I looked it up, it's not Regionally Accredited, which is probably what you want from a US school.

So, I would instead consider one of the "Big 3" schools we discuss on here: Charter Oak State College (COSC), Thomas Edison State Unviersity (TESU) or Excelsior College (EC). They are all RA schools, which is the gold standard in the US (like, Harvard, Yale, Stanford, Berkeley, are all RA schools).

None of the Big 3 has a BS in Marketing, but TESU does have a BSBA with a concentration in Marketing, and you can probably get it for less than $10,000.

It's not regionally accredited at the least. I would personally rather use the I'm smart and have made it so far without a college degree angle than put that school on my resume.  Go with the big 3 at a minimum.

Also, what is your targeted master program here in the US? Are you looking at a particular school? A particular degree?

Here is the link to the Wiki for the Big3 we talk about here for more detailed information: https://degreeforum.miraheze.org/wiki/Degree_Forum_Wiki

cecilgambe007, I guess you read this thread and thought SMC is very affordable: https://www.degreeforum.net/mybb/Thread-...Very-Cheap
As recommended earlier, you may want to take a look at the Big 3, but I also recommend the competency degree providers such as Brandman, etc.

TLDR - DO NOT take anything from SMC or Charisma, SMC lost their ACBSP and is only nationally recognized at the lower tiered.
TLDR - For Charisma, they had ASIC (UK) and changed to BAC (UK), then they lost Candidacy for ACBSP, and lastly, lost BAC (UK).

Now, let's get to know you a bit more.  Which country are you from?  What degree are you looking for?  Do you need a degree from a Nationally or Regionally accredited program? 
From the looks of things, you're looking for cheap/easy/fast.   I would suggest reading my threads on the sister forum.  I answered them pretty clear and concise.  Here are the links...

Thank you all of you for your replies, im spanish and im looking for Sports Sciences Master, but my friends in USA told me i can be able to do a Sports Sciences Master with any other degree...

After reading all your comments I realize that I am not familiar at all with the North American educational system.

I will keep researching it
