exams and perhaps TECEP exams, by arrangement - you provide evidence of a
suitable venue and proctor. GRE subject - shouldn't be a problem for you,
local site should be available. CLEP - available at various test sites in
Asia and perhaps on or near the Sub-Continent. DANTES (DSST) - may prove to
be more of a problem for you.
I provide links
to the test site lists of the various exam providers in the Critical
Resources section. Look to use these. I've also discussed the issue in
greater depth in this Lawrie's Q&A, and you should be able to access
those musings in the Knowledge Base via a site search of bain4weeks.com.
how you go about constructing your degree plan, you may be able to meet all
requirements by testing out, without leaving home. If not, well, consider
augmenting local testing with a traditional course or two, and/or, a quick
trip out of the country to test at the nearest foreign site accessible to
I have encountered a distance learning school that allows 100%
testing and distance learning for MBA and PhD.
Have you heard of this School? Do you have and opinion of it?
I first encountered this from a personal account of a student going
through the MBA program.
I thought it looked interesting and the school looks very legit.
They offer many programs and I am tempted to try them out.
Yes, I’m aware of Heriot Watt
University and the EBS MBA DL program. I first visited the Heriot Watt
campus in 1976 - 1977, and bought a DL “course” for evaluation of the EBS
MBA program in 1995. I’ve offered my two cents in various fora. See
H-W is a
mid-ranking UK, Royal Chartered school - equivalent to US regionally
Hi Lawrie, I have taken the Human Resources Management and
Organizational Behaviour Dantes Tests a long time ago.
COSC is giving only intermediate credit for both. Can I take the ECE
tests in both subjects and get Upper Division credits on top?
Does excelsior accept tecep exams?
Thanks for the tecep answer. I have tried to email tesc, but I have
not heard back. I don't know how many lower and upper credits are accepted
in the BA requirement. I have a AA so I have the general out of the way. I
know you need 33 credits for your area of study and 27 free electives. Of
these how many are upper and how many can be lower. Do you have a clue? I
can't find it anywhere.
frustrating, isn't it? Requirements restrict the number of 101 courses in
the concentration/major-area-of-study, to two. The remainder can comprise
200, 300, 400 level "courses". However, the designated
"course" requirements of individual concentration disciplines,
effectively restricts the number of 200 level courses that may be applied.
So, ballpark, total four/five courses at levels 100 (2), 200 (2+).
I provide a

section of bain4weeks.com, accessible from the main menu on the home page.
Go here, click the link to the TESC catalog, and "turn to" page
27. Begin reading forward from there.
