Impressive WGU MBA Grad.
#1
This guy finished the entire WGU MBA (excluding the capstone project) in 22 days. And on top of that, he finished the degree before we was even 20 years old and he was working a full-time job while doing it too. Impressive.

It's unfortunate that the article is mainly an advertisement for his book on how to accelerate an MBA. It doesn't look like his approach is any different than what other accelerators have described here, or on the WGU Reddit or Facebook forums; though it's hard to tell since the article only hints at his specific actions.

Isn't 22 days even fast for the this site? I know a lot of people here do it one term (or at least try to) but isn't 22 days extremely fast? That's like one course every two days!

Hmm, haha, that is one course every two days. I haven't tried WGU yet, but I wonder how their competency based assignments or courses work... I keep reading it's "assessments", do some "work" and exam, onto the next competency and repeat the process until you finish all of them.

Just a guess, but figuring out "how" isn't the barrier to completing an MBA in 22 days.

Yes, that's extremely fast. I have never heard of someone going that fast.

Some people have done theirs in about 10-12 weeks, which is already fast, and said that the group project took 3 weeks by itself.

Oh, I just looked at his link. He did not finish his degree in 22 days. He did everything except the capstone in 22 days.
Working on TESU BA CompSci/English, but may not graduate until Sept, Dec, or later.
TESU BSBA (with ASNSM) in March 2018.
First Masters complete. Slowly working on a second Masters but may start a different program.

ohhhhh wow. <eyeroll> Ya know... some people just don't have a clue.

Say it takes 700 days for the average MBA at WGU (I'm totally guessing) and he's advertising for the purpose of selling his book that he did it in 3% of the time. Then, behind the curtain, someone discovers it really takes him 6% of the time (or whatever) and calls him out as a lier because he is misrepresenting the truth. Really? Was the honest truth not "impressive enough?"
I love peer review.

One of the guys in the WGU IT Slack chat is writing all the papers for the MSCSIA while waiting for his bachelors term to end. With the ability to "pregame" like this, I can definitely see this as being doable.

This is exactly what I suspect he did, as it looks like all of his PAs were graded on about the same day. I was conisdering doing the same when I thought I would be continuing on with WGU.
