Broadly speaking, graduate degrees do NOT work like undergrad degrees. Schools tend to accept few, if any, transfer credits towards their degrees. There are pretty much no alt-credit ways of getting inexpensive grad credits - at least not toward an MBA. AFAIK, MBAs don't usually have exams anyway. It's mostly papers. Lots and lots of papers.

That said, some schools might accept a completed ENEB MBA as valid transfer credit toward their MBA program. That might be an option for you. https://degreeforum.miraheze.org/wiki/ENEB

I think Google project certificate credits are college level, so they can't transfer to MBA.

I know, sorry for the confusion. I’m on the break of getting my bachelors and Rachel told me about that course for getting my bachelors.

Coopersmith now has two business courses that are NCCRS-recommended as graduate-level if you can find a school that accepts NCCRS credits at the graduate level. The Thunderbird School of Global Management is about to start their free, self-paced graduate certificate program. Those credits will be transferable if you earn a B+ or better on all of them. Here's a thread on the schools that accept the most transfer credits.

I'm attending Amberton University and none of my exams so far have had proctors. They're open book as well. Amberton has a variety of areas to focus your MBA. Tuition is $285 per credit and all MBA courses are 3 credits. The total fees per session are $35. There are 4 10 week sessions a year with at least a 2 week break in between. 

https://www.amberton.edu/programs-and-co...index.html

I have read that there are ACE grad courses out there. I have searched and searched for them but haven't found any. Amberton does accept grad transfer credit of up to 12 credits. You must complete at least 8 courses at Amberton.
Amberton University: 
MBA - Began 2022

University of Maine at Presque Isle (UMPI): 
BLS with Management Information Systems, Project Management, and Management Minors - Graduated 2021
BA Business Administration with Marketing Concentration - Graduated 2022

@OP, Does it have to be an MBA, or can a close/similar degree say in Organizational Leadership do? Are you into competency based degrees where they go through assessments and assignments, or would you rather take the courses through terms? There are a few choices, have you taken a look at any that interest you yet?

HAU no proctored exams.

Plus, most of us have gotten 3 courses worth of credits between undergrad and other courses etc
MBA with Hellenic American University started March 29th, 2021 , finished May 20th 2022, Graduate in June 2022

BSBA at Thomas Edison State University started May 21st 2020 with Sophia and SDC, finished Jan 24th, 2021, Graduated on 12 March of 2021

Total time both degrees 2 years exactly, total cost just a small bit over $10,000

Thanks Degreeforum!

Hmm makes me wonder why are you asking for non-proctored exams... Is there a reason? It is kind of suspicious to ask for a school like that. Not accusing you of anything but sounds like you are looking for a way to do your exams the easy way (possibly using Chegg or other internet sources). If the exams are proctored it prevents cheating or help from others. What good is an MBA if you cant pass exams to prove your knowledge? Now if you are looking for a program that is more paper-driven that's a different story. Just saying...
