  • Org Beh 307 Organization Behavior 
  • Org Beh 311 Conflict Resolution
  • Comm 205 Theories of Persuasion

If you are in the US and a US Citizen/PR, I second the notion of going for the WGU degree, especially when you mentioned you would like to get the Udacity Nanodegree as that is one thing I also recommend people to take as well. If you're overseas or in Canada, then I suggest going for the TESU BS Data one instead, as WGU doesn't accept international students (they recently stopped accepting Canadians, I think since Aug 2018).
Done: TESU ASNSM Biology, ASBA/BSBA (ACBSP Accredited in 2017)
Working on: TESU BA Biology & Computer Science
Deferred: **Deciding on several Masters/PHD programs**

Thank you for pointing that out. I printed materials today and saw that it was included. Nice surprise to see that.

I already submitted a request for my transcripts to be sent to WGU for evaluation.

Now I am just going down the WGU course list and trying to match the equivalent online courses (CLEP, Saylor, etc.) I can take.

Thanks again.
