Here is a list of (official-sounding, but) non-recognized accrediting bodies...
This was very helpful. I am considering an online MBA in Project Management and have narrowed my choices down to two; Grantham University and Norwich. I did see the accrediting body that Grantham claims on the site, so that is a good thing. One question I have as far as accredidation goes is I was always under the assumption that if a student uses either tuition assistance or VA benefits, the school must be accredited. Is that not the case?
