Need help choosing between 3 great universities.?
Topic: Mba papers online
July 20, 2019 / By Hellen Question:
I'm interested in 3 universities but am having a difficult time choosing which one will be most beneficial to me.
Degree: MBA and considering M.S. in Management/Leadership
First choice Pepperdine- There is a campus very close to me and offers both programs.
2nd choice: Columbia- Offers an online MBA
3rd choice: University of La Verne- There is also a campus close to me and offers both programs.
As I understand, Pepperdine is a great school and gives me the "brick and mortar" experience,but isn't ranked as high as Columbia.
Columbia- Ivy league, but is an online degree.
La Verne- Great school, I can physically attend classes, but isn't in the same ranking as the 2 above.
Should I go for the Ivy League online, or for a lesser known school just for the sake of physically attending class? Which degree will hold more weight with employers?
For anyone who has attended any of these programs, what is your assessment of the experience?

I'd go with Pepperdine. Columbia is an Ivy League, and the reason why they have such great a reputation is because of the professors there. They physically are there in person, giving lectures, grading your papers, available during office hours and after class for you to ask questions.... everything that makes an Ivy League an Ivy League is literally NOT EVEN THERE with an online degree. On top of that, it only offers one of the things you're interested in, not both. Just one. So, don't let the fact that it's an Ivy League influence your decision AT ALL. Oh, also, with an online degree you don't meet people at the school and that whole NETWORKING aspect that Ivy Leagues also have a reputation for is gone. Completely. Networking in any sense is just... not present. The only thing you should be considering right now is - do you want an online degree, or do you not? Personally I think it sounds like a terrible deal compared to the other two.
Either of the other two schools would be better than the online degree, I'd say. Since you don't seem to express any preference of La Verne over Pepperdine, I'd say go with Pepperdine. It's a great school, as you said it offers BOTH programs you are interested in. It's also right on the beach, practically. In Malibu! This is literally the antitheses of getting an online degree.
Pepperdine gets my vote for sure.

EDIT: The problem with your interpretation of abiogenesis is that it assumes that the first organism was a single-celled organism similar to the ones we are familiar with today. It could easily have been a far simpler form of reproducing "life" that we would be entirely unfamiliar with but long ago went extinct. I would recommend looking up Darwin's "warm little pond" hypothesis- while the part of it concerning the origin of life itself has been thought incorrect by the scientific community of late, his thought that the earliest forms of life would be devoured by more advanced ones still retains value. It offers an explanation as to why we would not today see or even recognize the most primal forms of life were they to be available for study today.
The truth is, nobody knows for sure what went on that long ago. The assumption is that some natural process was responsible for starting life. It could be anything, truthfully, but given the lack of evidence for the supernatural, reasonable people should limit their consideration to the natural explanation.
Science doesn't support the Genesis creation account.
taking online classes really wont give you the college experience. pepperdine is a great school, and the fact that it is your first choice shows you really like it. i would choose there so you get a more hands on experience with your program, which will be better in the future.

Flip a coin. Seriously. (Although you would have to narrow it down to two or figure out some other way of doing it.) The point is not to leave it up to fate, but because for that split second that the coin is in the air you realize exactly which side you're hoping it will land on.
On a related note, I flipped a coin to make the decision for my own college a few years ago. I couldn't possibly be happier.

I recognize your ambition, in the best sense of term, but the best answer is none of the above.
The only MBAs that usually eventually return to the student the tuition fee and the earnings that are lost while studying are those on the top thirty lists (classroom programs) of US News and Business Week.
An exception is if the MBA leads to a sufficient promotion at the student's present place of employment.

Ones that stood out for me on that list in relation to what you want to do, were:
Plant Sciences - Environmental Architecture and eco housing often uses plants as part of structural devices - knowing how to manipulate plants would be useful.
Anthropology - A lot of what eco housing is about is connecting buildings to the people that live in them, and the earth they stand on - knowing about the natural elements of human housing needs would be great.
Earth Science - These sub-terranean (sp.?) houses are becoming very popular - knowing about how underground earth thermodynamics works would be useful in designing heating systems in underground eco homes.
Hope this helps and gives you something to think about!
