MBA and MA at ENEB for just under $300
Well, sent in the online admissions form for JFKu and shortly after missed a call from an advisor. Called back and it said it was for Northcentral University .He tried to sell me on the Northcentral MBA program for $33,000 and when unspecified I was interested in the JFKu program, he (wrongly) said that was an undergrad program only. I mentioned that it's a master's degree and he said that program no longer exists. I felt like he has no idea what he was talking about and was more interested in aggressive pitching the uninteresting Northcentral program. I emailed the JFKu admissions email address directly to confirm what he said. If they are no longer offering the program, I will go forward with WGU, but the idea of a competency based program offered by a school that also has a brick and mort campus is certainly appealing.

i would be pretty shocked if that's the case. they have been aggressively advertising their flex MBA.

I emailed their admissions box on the 22nd asking for a confirmation, and again this morning and have not received any replies. I called several times and was sent to a voicemail, which I have left 2 since the 22nd. That pretty much seals the deal for me to divert my attention to WGU for the MBA. I did on the other hand hear back from ENEB who said that I can change over to the Master in International trade curriculum for a $35 fee, and I just might go through that curriculum after finishing at WGU, because why not? Worst case scenario, I learn something, best case scenario, it compliments the MBA, which is the only degree the employer will care about anyways.

That's disappointing. I was excited to learn more about JFKu. It's been pretty un explored around here. we know a lot about the WGU process, but almost nothing since Patten went under.

Maybe they still have some Patten baggage Tongue

I finally got a response to the second email, actually not long after I made that post. The person apologized for the confusion that the advisor gave me, and told me they will have an advisor familiar with the MBA program contact me. I will keep you updated. The biggest thing that I need to research, is how the acreditacion will affect the degree. jfku is regionally accredited, but their business school is not specifically accredited. WGU does have acbsp accreditation. That is one check box for WGU. The biggest thing I would like to see before deciding would be a video/slideshow/ amature sketch of what their platform looks like now. And an idea of how they assess the material learned vs the old Patten program.

WGU's business program did fairly recently pick up programmatic accreditation, but honestly unless you want to go into teaching in the field at the college level, not many people know or care about programmatic business accreditation.

Finally spoke to a JFKU advisor. She still wasn't very knowledgeable about the program, but did state that you can complete the individual courses as quickly as you want, but that you cannot start the next set of courses until the next term. She said the MBA cannot be completed in less than 1.5 years due to that. It still didn't seem to match what they are advertising. I think unfortunately nobody is on the same page with JFKu flexcourse. I will probably go with WGU for that reason, unfortunately.

Weird, JFKu doesn't seem to have their resources together, reminds me of a gong show like TESU's advisors saying one thing and then their details are different than what you would expect. Anyways, if you've decided on WGU, they are a good choice as they've got the ACBSP and also a large alumni base to network with - I haven't read many people have completed the JFKu degrees. Either way, good luck on your studies Popestt.
