college credits. Can someone explain the logic and academic standards behind
this? Is there a precedence to this? What is the position of the BCG on

There's no relationship whatever between certification and college credits,
and there's no reason I can see why BCG should have a position on the matter.

However, I can foresee problems of the sort faced by a friend of mine some
years ago. He took and passed the CPA examination before completing his
bachelor's degree in accounting. His faculty adviser, who had taken and failed the
test, made the rest of his senior year extremely difficult, but he weathered
it and went on to a successful CPA career and partnership in a firm.
