Here is where I am now with my graduate school decision..
#31
I agree as well going for the MBA would be the better move rather than a second bachelors in business administration. To be honest the MBA program is very manageable and for $3000 I think it's the best value for someone who just wants to learn about business administration from a regionally accredited school. It is a small school and the classes are very very small. I am currently taking one course and in my class, we started with three students but one dropped out now it only two of us but the professors and course content are awesome. We use assigned textbooks and Harvard Business Review articles to complete assignments that are submitted on blackboard.

I have heard from other students that courses have more students but no more than 5-7 students. I guess the first course they signed me up for didn't have many students. Only three students to start and now we are down to two but hey I'm not complaining I just read the material and do the assigned work. To be honest some courses will have a weekly zoom meeting/class (usually three hours long at night like from 6pm-9pm eastern standard time) and some courses won't. In the courses that do not have zoom meetings, your interaction will be through email with the professor if you have any questions or concerns. You will be doing a lot of self-learning overall but I believe most online programs are like that.

Most of the cheaper programs are going to be self-learning with very little classmate and Professor interaction. My MBA at SOSU was a lot of self-learning. My MS at Duke University is very high-touch interaction between my classmates and professors. Almost to the point you’d think it was an in-person program being delivered remotely.

I reckon this means I can stop working on the BSBA from TESU as getting an MBA for $3,000 versus the BSBA for the $5,000 or so in remaining costs kind of makes TESU a moot point now.

A bachelor's degree is lowering ranking than a master's so the BSBA would do nothing for you if you have an MBA. Might as well spend the time, energy, and money on the MBA.

Every online program I have been a part of you really are learning on your own. You're given assignments. You complete them. They're graded and sent back to you. Some programs have discussions but they're not live. To some degree in person programs are the same way unless you have one of those awfully boring professors who spends your 50 minute class reading the textbook to you. Not all professors/instructors are engaging.

Yes I have done two online degrees, One at excelsior college MPA (all online self-learning no zoom classes) and right now finishing a doctorate in healthcare administration at Virginia University of Lynchburg (has a zoom meeting 1 hour every two weeks for each class these conversations are life and allow the student to speak and build on topics we learned, most work is self-learning and discussion is done through discussion posts with students).

My experience so far with HAU is that as much interaction with the profs that you want, you will get. Seriously. A question gets a quick email back, a request for a call and the phone rings. I am very happy with HAU. It is much, much more interactive than say the TESU BSBA capstone.. if you want it to be.
TESU BSBA started May 21st 2020 with Sophia and SDC, finished Jan 24th, 2021, Graduated on 12 March of 2021

Starting MBA with Hellenic American University March 29th, 2021

Just turned in my FIRST paper. Good grief. This might be a moment of truth. I really have to get two more or maybe three more done by August 1st. Hopefully I can do those a little faster with what I finally figured out so far. My current assignment is a PowerPoint about followers.

Gannon University - Certificate, Paralegal Studies (2001)
University of South Florida - Certificate, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in the Workplace (2021)

Other coursework done on Sophia, Saylor Academy and ENEB.

I've always been a big fan of WGU. I'm a fan of pretty much any legit self-paced/independent study/competency-based program. But I am a little concerned about WGU's rising prices as I remember reading that they are about to go up by over $400 on August 1st. Seems like an odd time to do this, and I could've sworn they already had a price increase last year, albeit a smaller one.

I also agree, you should do MBA over underground. When you complete your MBA, you can transfer some courses for your PhD.
