This morning I received a reply after providing more identifying information in regards to Sir David.
Hi Ms. Staley,
Thelbert D. Morgan is a graduate of Webster University. He received his Master of Arts degree in Business Administration on 3/9/1979. He completed his coursework at our McConnell Air Force Base campus. The MBA program did not start at Webster University until 1982. Have a good day.

While this does not completely answer the question of what type of degree. A Master’s of Arts in Business Administration is different than the Master’s of Business Administration. A Master’s of Arts is essentially a humanities liberal arts/humanties degree that has an emphasis on management. A Master’s of Business Administration is honed in towards 30 hours of contemporary business specialties like marketing, economics and corporate law. These degrees are night and day apart.
As he represented himself in a half-truth as to when (1980 vs 1979), where (“Webster’s University” vs Webster College) and what degree he obtained (MBA vs Master’s of Art in Business Admin), I am not sure what he was attempting to lead people to believe is true. That is the “Thelbert Experience” in a nutshell. He does not market himself as he truly is. Would those differences have mattered much to the public? Probably not, but the fact, he broadened every aspect of that degree is indicative of how he expands the truth and how nothing he says can be taken at face value. There is always a con to one degree or another.
I concede…there was a degree but it was not as he represented it, which led to the confusion in confirming his education.
No worries, the military record will be enough.
