Default Want a Distance degree from Costa Rica? Try here instead.

Hi

Universidad Empresarial has a (quite) long and (very) checkered history. Consensus a while ago was that yes, its Bachelor's and Master's degrees might be OK but the Doctorates definitely weren't.

Curious (and accurate) target-marketing. A favoured "Mailbox university" for Germans for some time. There was also a period when all the bachelor's and master's grads had Hispanic names but almost all the doctoral degrees were awarded to Asians. Nearly all Empresarial's new Doctors (Ph.D.) had names of Chinese origin.

Here's one of quite a few threads at DD. This one outlines some serious trouble Universidad Empresarial got itself into a while back. Much of it involved deception - using pictures of other medical schools and hospitals as if they were part of its own Med. school. Bad stuff indeed!

Advice from others:

If you want to earn a distance degree from Costa Rica go to the following site. It's a known good school. http://www.uned.ac.cr/ (Universidad Estatal a Distancia).

You do not have the real information about Empresarial University of Costa Rica with the new leadership of Dr. William Zamora.

THIS ACCREDITATION IS FOR COSTA RICA ONLY. Bachelors and Masters only.

Don't be so condescending! I understand it fully and have read your propaganda on Dr. Zamora's behalf in this and other fora. It does NOT alter Empresarial's controversial and quite disreputable past one bit. Time will tell. The jury is still out.

To prove I've read and understood your blurb, pardon me for viewing with suspicion Empresarial's authority to grant all the doctorates it wants to foreigners, but none at all to Costa Ricans. Double standard? Education costs a lot of money. Why should people take risks with supposedly-reformed shady schools when there are perfectly good ones without a murky past?

Default Furthermore...

Murky past = murky present, at least in this case.

It appears that Universidad Empresarial is NOT a member of the current accrediting authority, SINAES, in Costa Rica. That means it can only confer three specific degree types within Costa Rica, having in-country program approval for those through CONESUP. Without SINAES, its degrees awarded to foreigners mean ZIP-NADA-BUPKIS!

Again, see here. (My, how this thread has grown - like Pinocchio's nose!)


http://www.degreediscussion.com/foru...arial #p57231

I quote from the last posting:

"You might as well print your own diploma; you have as much legal authority to do so as Universidad Empresarial de Costa Rica has to issue a degree that isn’t a B.A. in Business, a B.A. in Accounting, or a M.B.A.."

Good luck with your Empresarial degree, Mr. Strazzeri!

Johann
