Upgrad/SSBM Geneva - Global DBA - 36 months, $11K USD
#1
Alas, they've added their first Upgrad Doctorate through a partnership with SSBM Geneva. If you can handle the "upgrad" parts/phases of the program, then this is a very inexpensive GDBA that can be completed in 3 years!

Upgrad Link: https://www.upgrad.com/ca/doctor-of-busi...ation-ssbm
SSBM Geneva site: https://www.ssbm.ch/ , check out their online accreditation/tuition
They have apparently applied for ACBSP already, I wouldn't go for them just yet, until they get it...

A bit harsh, but this degree might be useless unless for personal development, and even for personal development there are better choices

I created this post as a "place holder" or something along those lines, as this institution may follow what Charisma University has done - seek ACBSP programmatic or secondary accreditation and then seek country specific -"RA equivalent"- accreditation. Anyways, as I mentioned in my post, this is something I won't be getting even after they've received ACBSP, until they get that "RA equivalency", it's just here for me to check up on when or IF that time comes...

Interestingly SSBM has an "... Executive DBA is delivered in cooperation with the Faculty of Economics & Business, University of Zagreb, Croatia that is a publicly recognized and accredited university with a double world-known accreditations AACSB and EPAS.

https://www.ssbm.ch/executive-dba/

The cost is Eu15k.

Anyway, what is the difference between a DBA and an Executive DBA?

Further check on some SSBM diploma posted on the internet, the degree is actually issued by SSBM. U of Zagreb is just mentioned as a co-op partner.
See the image here attached.

Hence, the DBA degree is not from the U of Zagreb and is not AACSB accredited per see.

Based on the misleading marketing info. SSBM should be avoided. Just too shady.

Yeah. If it was awarded by University of Zagreb which is AACSB accreditied I would've done it. I went to the University of Zagreb website, they don't even offer online classes.

SSBM has a page on ACBSP : https://acbsp.org/members/?id=64671995& but it is a "profile page"  (different but not legit)

Zagreb doesn't list Upgrad or SSBM as a partner: https://zsem.hr/en/international-partner...ion=europe

At least 4 of SSBM’s faculty members teach (or at least claim to teach) at Zagreb. http://tondesignserver.com.br/ssbm/our-faculty/

The meaning is pretty clear to me: professors from Zagreb are also associated with SSBM. Nothing less and certainly nothing more. 

In the same way, when I took a community college math class, the math program was taught in cooperation with Yale University. My instructor was getting a PhD at Yale. Doesn’t mean I earned a Yale degree, Yale credit, etc. same for SSBM.

I asked for more information about the executive one. It appears their other DBAs do transfer through WES, so that is significant.
