That's weird they keep on changing tracks. I've previously converted my MBA two years to MBA 3.5 years that in current semester is ending. The plan behind conversion was to get a degree that's equal to MS. Wonder where exactly am I standing now. Well, let's see what HEC has to say about it once I get the degree from VU and apply for an equalance certificate.
