What is your opinion of their MBA program? Many of my friends from China study there, and it's very close to where we live. Fair tuition too.
University of LaVerne
I just read the external examiners report for La Verne. He said there was just one Caucasian student in the class, and the rest all Asian. I guess business is good there. I don't see how the tuition can be fair. It doesn't have AASCB accredition. If you want a WASC only accreditation, then the Amity MBA is around $4000.
I think the only reason to be at La Verne is to spend a year in the US but not have to deal with Americans.
I got my MBA from ULV and am very glad I did. I feel I got an excellent education and I'm not sure what any AACSB accredited program would give you that ULV does not. I spoke to the head of the ULV business college about it and he said that it costs a lot of money to get AACSB accreditation plus they are required to have over 80 professors on their business faculty. That was 10 years ago, so I'm not sure if they have reached that number or not.
There are a lot of Chinese students that get their MBA from ULV, though I'm not sure why. I just remember being at graduation and hearing all the Chinese names and being impressed that the announcers could pronounce every name without stumbling at all.
AACSB accredition gives students, faculty members and employers a better than average outcome. AACSB accredition is expensive the way that winning a Michelin star is expensive: you don't buy the award, but you need to have high-quality staff, facilities and attract customers who are prepared to pay for it.
You are mistaken in your idea that schools are required to have over 80 professors. AACSB has several schools with under 35 faculty.
OK, the department head told me they have to have a certain number of faculty to qualify for accreditation. This conversation was more than 10 years ago, so I don't remember the exact number.
As far as I know, in terms of faculty they only look at their qualifications, and not the number.
