A Dog is awarded an MBA. Seriously!


dog degree

It usually takes years of hard work, time, energy and money to get an MBA. Unless you’re a dog. The American University of London apparently has a practice of awarding people degrees simply based on their past experience. Well that, and a little money. So a BBC news program decided to test it by applying for an MBA for a dog named Pete. A fake resume was submitted to the school, along with the application which listed 15 years of job experience. No background check was ever performed to make sure that resume was legitimate and after paying the fee of $7,300, Pete the dog was awarded the degree just four days later. After being called out for the dog MBA, AUOL maintained that what it does is legitimate, while acknowledging that it is not an accredited university. Just FYI — the school is currently blacklisted in five U.S. states and you can actually get arrested in Texas if you try to use them as a qualification to get a job. Meanwhile, anyone looking to hire a dog? (BBC)
