Western Michigan University is the only place to compete with online universities.
Returning students. Online students. Career minded adults.
Allow student with life and business experience to obtain credit to the school. I am currently a returning student and a senior. I take online classes. The only degree available is a university studies degree. I would like to see at least a business or management degree available. I have also worked in retail for 20 year in management but can receive no class credit towards graduation for that experience. I feel more people would chose an accredited institution with name recognition value over schools like University of Phoenix type school if these were options. I would be happy to pay for the credit received but the ability to use knowledge acquired over a 20 year career would be a huge help and a draw to future students.
