I am sick of people criticizing Warren National/Kennedy Western University. Especially people with very little experience or understanding of the real issues. I completed their DBA program. I have four degrees from accredited schools like the University of OK, Savannah State University, etc. And attended Kent State University, University of Cincinnatti, Charles Sturt University, Georgia Tech. A good student is a good student. The University of Phoenix and Walden University chase students as much as Warren National ever did. How long will it take people to understand that this is a matter of money. Do you think it really costs the University of Phoenix $40,000 for an on line DBA? 20 years ago, most brick and mortar schools laughed at on line education. Now 60% of all the brick and mortar schools in the US have them. It is a financial necessity. You can't fill the classes in a college or university with enough people to pay all the bills. They have to have on line education. Now they say it is ok. Today they crucify Warren National. What will happen tomorrow?
I am not saying that Warren National was perfect. They have disappointed even me in many ways but there were bright spots. There were hard working people, good students, and bad, and people were being educated. What I am saying is that it wouldn't surprise me if there were more politics behind this thing than truth. One interesting point. A DBA program in the UK is almost entirely based on the dissertation. In the US it is different. You may be asked, depending on the school, to do everything from take modern dance to submit a blood sample, then, finally a dissertation. Do we think any less of a foreign doctorate? We need to look at content in a program and avoid the political, perceptual bull . We, as a population, have been duped, controlled, mass marketed to and lied to for hundreds of years. Lets ask a question or two. Lets read between the lines. One final thing. The US Government and the Department of Education, what their opinion really means. Lets see. This is the same government that has brought you bail outs, Vietnam, Iraq, and maybe a hell of a lot more. I am sure they are right this time.
