Dog Earns MBA Online

Dog Earns M.B.A. Online – from The Chronicle of Higher Education

Just goes to show:

GetEducated.com, an online-learning consumer group, managed to purchase an online M.B.A. for its mascot, a dog named Chester Ludlow. The Vermont pug earned his tassles by pawing over $499 to Rochville University, which offers “distance learning degrees based on life and career experience,” according to a news release from GetEducated. He got back a package from a post-office box in Dubai that contained a diploma and transcripts, plus a certificate of distinction in finance and another purporting to show membership in the student council.

Cue a whole series of dreadful puns about hounding the diploma mills and a promo video about the stunt: “Dog Earns Online MBA: A Cautionary Tail.”
