Like some one said Iowa University seems to be the best considering both USCIS and career purpose as well ..
I will stay away from ASPEN. I would rather suggest WGU (I believe $8,000 fees) and it's both Regionally and Nationally accredited University. However, ASPEN is not Regionally accredited.

In the same boat. Doing my MS-MIS from Bellevue University which offers purely online or class room type. It is regionally accredited and I checked with my Immigration lawyer and he got his blessing before enrolling. They are also listed in SEVIS Database of the schools who can take foreign students. As far I know regional accredation is superior than National only accredation.

Why don't you guys, in the spirit of REALLY enhancing your knowledge, get a Master's from a reputed school. I have all the confidence that you are successful in your jobs right now, but a good education from a US school will open up even more opportunities with large companies. More than technical things, it will teach interpersonal, attitude and communication skills, which are equally important to be successful.

I did MS from a large well reputed school, and have only good things to say about that path.

Follow the spirit of the EB2 requirement, not just the letter for a change!

Couldn't have said it better. Perhaps we should start lobbying to have the USCIS only approve Master's degrees from top tier schools.

I appreciate the spirit of what you say, and actually do apply this to myself to some extent. But, I would decide against lecturing anyone on this, because academic knowledge is not everything, and a person could have learned a lot more in the areas that are important to succeed in the profession than what most schools teach..

gk - I agree with you, and mentioned that one could be successful without master's from a good school in my first reply above.

The tone of this thread (cheapest and fastest way to do MS) is what ticked me into making this comment. A short cut is not always the best one.

The nature of this site is to advise, and most of the posters are giving their opinion. So did I. Merely the fact that you read and replied means that others think like me, they just don't mention it in fear of being called a "lecturer" :-)

I take it that by "means that others think like me" you really mean "means that [there are] others think like me"

And that probably means we are sensible guys who know what is good for them... to each, his own!

Default MS may not be the final solution

As discussed in another thread, MS may not after all guarantee one a EB2 PERM labor approval. The job requirements also should justify the need for a Masters.

Guys,

I am half way through Aspen on MBA, and in a fix now as neither WGU or IOWA transfers credits from Aspen while IOWA said they do only from regionally accredited colleges where as WGU don't do inbound transfers at all for MBA

I am in a fix.. should i continue what i am doing in ASPEN , start a new one or keep searching for the collage which takes transfers from ASPEN..

my final goal is to get ported over to EB2..

What if the job requirement does not require MS, is there a way to port GC process from EB3 to Eb2 ?

Please advice...

Just find a job that requires MS. I am sure there are plenty of high-paying jobs out there right now..
