When looking at MBA programs, I noticed that SCSU's program has been accredited for much longer than MSUMs. To me, I am more attracted to a school that has been accredited since the 1970s than one since a few years ago.

I do agree with this, though either would probably be fine.

Well to my point, I am a Husky alum so I have a bias.

Also, to play devil's advocate, St. Thomas' MBA program became accredited last year, I wouldn't say that UST is less of a school than SCSU, I'd say the opposite...

But accrediation is something must consider when applying for schools, especially graduate schools. Accredited schools require their instructors to produce publications once every few years, and require them to constantly be researching and studying. This brings credibility to a program and a school, as a student is only as good as his/her professor.

Yup, and this makes a good deal of sense to me. Not that I know anything about business degrees.

kazoopilot Im from the upper pennisula of michigan which is by the border of wisconsin and I thinking more of the lines of Minnesota State Mankato because the size is pretty good for me not too big like I would consider St. Cloud St to be somewhat big for me and mankato just seems to be the right size

I'm from southwest lower Michigan - lol. You're 12 hours away from where I'm from.

Mankato is awesome. One of the best cities in Minnesota, and a great school to attend. Plus, the climate will seem mild coming from the U.P., more sunshine and warmer temperatures.

Mankato is my favorite city in Minnesota outside of the Twin Cities.

Default Dorms

I have questions about McElroy I figure out today I got a dorm there. My question is community bathrooms/showers. Does these showers have curtains or something that covers it. Im just wonder and Im guessing community bathroom is just like a normal public bathroom

Thanks for the help

Why is that a concern? Are you hiding an elephant penis or something?

P.S. you shoudn't!
