Default Don Bosco online university

Does anyone know or has any degree from Don Bosco online University. I am planning to enroll in MBA program for my career growth and later to apply for EB2 application. In the accreditation it says it is recognized by the UGC. Seems a legit unversity still looking if someone has any experience with it. Its is very cheap and seems the best option.
The website is dbuglobal dot com

Default Try WGU

Try Western Governors University (WGU). its reputed, relatively inexpensive, its run by 19 state governors, regionally accredited and has a stamp of approval from Time Magazine, NBC, LA times etc, and the reviews are great. if you are committed, the program offers flexibility to complete within 1 to 1.5 years.

Depends on the evaluation you get from credential evaluation agency. Try WES (world education services), they equate 3 year degree from certain Indian universities to US bachelors. you can get an evaluation preview for 25$.

I already applied to WGU and gone through everything, but they do not accept 3 years degree for MBA. After having issues with them I started looking at other option.

Also what is wrong with the UGC recognized university and Don Bosco's Degree. Also I get the same MBA for $2000, instead of $14000 from WGU.

I might be completely off but wouldn't a University domain be .edu.. .com domain is usually commercial. Maybe all these Universities have become commercial business centres

Default dont throw away money

Any online degree is dont worth the paper it is printed on. Never go for any completely online degree. If one/two courses are online which are not major course for that degree/program that may be OK.

Join some evening college or weekend program if you dont have time but go to online degree of any university including public university.

If you just want degree you might be able buy from some where in India paying appropriate fee.

If you are hiring manager, please dont hire any one with online education. Please go into depth of education if you are interviewing the candidates . If you find some one educated online degree/program or for profit university you will regret hiring that candidate.

Default unbelievable !!

I myself is a hiring manager.. LOL !! and I don't think you should go beyond making an opinion "DONOT GO TO ONLINE UNIVERSITY" ??? what was that. You can give your opinion but please don't order.

Change yourself with the latest trend forget online colleges there are online schools also. What is wrong with the online university? This is the new world of education embrace it, when I can get the same thing at the comfort of my house and time , why choose on campus courses?

All I was asking was, does anyone has any first hand experience with this university , but its quite apparent no one has. This is a legit university with all the recognition ,and had nothing less than what my university had , where I completed by graduation.

Also higher education is not going to make any difference to the professional who has 14 years of experience nor will anyone look at the credentials while hiring. I want to do it strictly for my GC and may be in the process I may learn something.

Just to add in response to your answer that I am in the field of education since last twenty yrs in India and US. I am have experiences teaching online as well as regular class room courses at public institutions. I am involved with engineering and technology education from day one after graduated with my BS. So I know what are the plus and minus in both types of educations.

I understand as long as you dont want to learn anything/gain anything from your proposed degree online degree or just a degree certificate should be fine. I am sure on intense search you will be able to find for profit accrediated universities which can provide you what you need for your GC purpose.

Still I just want to advise any one who is hiring candidates carefully evaluate the knowledge/skill/experiences of the any one who has online degree or has significant portion of major related courses done online.

All due respect to your experience. You shouldn't generalize upcoming trend in education. Online universities are no longer offered by only diploma mills but Harvard, Stanford and all other Ivy league universities are offering courses online. You are dead wrong if you say you cannot develop new skills with online training. I continuously learn new technologies offered by vendors online which I find as good as in person training and those training offered by renowned industry experts with best seller book in respective areas.

Also if you are so fond of traditional training then please look at "Bill Gates" who dropped college although not a case of online learning but Kevin Systrom is who is Instagram founder have no formal training/degree in programming or coding but he did mostly online. Would you recommend hiring managers to not to consider him?
