That is a credential problem that is going to be solved in the next 5 years.
If I was hiring and someone just passed a 'respected' qualification for an MBA equivalent and he interviewed just as well and had job experience equal to a traditional MBA then I would hire the guy who tested out. I would trust a CPA or CFA exam score much more than the grade inflation and cheating that is acceptable at universities. I would also trust the education toward a standardized 'body of knowledge' instead of a 'professor bias' of classes today. There is no 'quality standard' at the university, it is a body of old farts who gained tenure and stopped working.
Companies know that this degree fixation has got to end, there simply is no alternative to screening candidates today. Soon there will be. Stanford in the AI class had over 100,000 students take the class. They did not issue a transcript but then did send a letter saying that "you placed 520 out of 100,000" instead of an A, B, C, or D. The highest score any Stanford student placed was 441 out of 100,000. I want to hire the 'top 1000' of the graduates of this class. I would know that they are at least as good as a Stanford student taking the same class.
Times are changing, first content moves online, then credentials.
