I wish they did. Reducing the stigma of non-traditional college would go a long way towards making education more affordable and attainable for everyone.

.... a graduate of creative circus doesn’t sound much better. We live in a bubble of what’s “acceptable” for some people and working parents an online university or community college is all they can afford, money and time wise. Totally agree with SDS1

It's a joke. It will never be the equivalent of a traditional degree, nor should it. It's the equivalent of having a significant other via only online communication/never meeting them vs having a real relationship where you see them every day. There are valuable experiences, social interactions, etc. that you don't get by staring at a screen. Employers don't just want booksmarts they want socially intelligent human beings. Online degrees have some value, but it doesn't come close to being on par with a real university experience.

I don’t think they compete with traditional universities. They are more of chance for lower income people to get a degree so they have some sort of differential when applying for jobs. For-profit colleges get a bad rep in the US, but even health care is for-profit here so 🤷🏻‍♂️

Not convinced there's a strong correlation between a traditional university degree and social skills.

I have a few questions for people in consulting roles (both external/internal).

My partner is in corporate banking, but he wants to switch to a consulting/strategy-based role. I noticed people with those jobs typically have an MBA, and also majority of the job ads in similar roles has MBA as either a requirement or preferred qualification. So:

1) does MBA actually improve someone's chance in getting those roles?
2) are there any good Canadian MBA programs you'd recommend?

Thank you all!
