American InterContinental University Reviews
I began my studies at AIU online in November of 2003. I earned my Bachelor's Degree is Business Administration - graduating Magna Cum Laude. I completed my first MBA in Human Resource Management and my 2nd MBA in Strategy. When I graduated with my 2nd MBA - my salary was right under $60,000 in 2006. My salary is now right under $100,000.00 with more room to grow and improve. I loved AIU and the entire program. My Virtual Professors were very encouraging and my advisors were on top of me to make sure that I was successful.
You get out of it - what you put into it. Some people will go to school and expect to be given a degree (not earned) the school is there to learn - yoiu need to put in the time and effort - I see other reviews and I dont get it - I attended AIU from the AA program all the way to Masters and sure there are some bumps on the road but nothing big, Most teachers care - present the material and answer your questions - you have to collaborate - Bottom Line do I earn more ? YES with a Masters Degree I would earn alot less than I do today. Program Manager at HP 12 years
I just started this school on August 24,2015. I have to say I love it. I don't understand why people are complaining about the school itself. If you don't like it please feel free to go to another school of your choosing. I have learned a lot since starting. The tools offered here are essential to my learning. The instructor I have had so far has helped me when I needed it.I love Intellipath as well. I learn so many new things that I had not known already. It's all about Time Management and Planning ahead. If you don't do any of those things of course you will have a hard time. My second session starts on October 5, 2015. I thought I was only going to be getting one class but it turns out I will be getting 2 classes. One is English Composition, the other is Foundations of Criminal Justice. Instead of griping and complaining I took responsibility in planning ahead and applying Time Management skills. I created a calendar list of tasks/assignments that I have to do within each class and included the date those assignments were due by. I also was able to set a specific day and time in which I want to get my assignments started and completed. Doing this you can never go wrong and you will stay a step ahead instead of doing everything at the last minute. Although a challenge, in some regards, I am looking forward to learning more in my second session here at AIU and I would recommend this school to any one who is interested in pursuing a college degree. If you are not the type to read, research or write then this isn't your thing. There will be a lot of reading, writing and researching going on in the classrooms of AIU. All of this works for me as I am a homemaker with 3 children in school. It is time consuming but so what I have a lot of time on my hands and pursuing my college degree is something that I have always wanted to do.As I said before, complaining won't accomplish anything or get you anywhere. If you find that AIU is not up to your standards, go somewhere else but at the end of the day it will still amount to the same thing..WORK...you get back what you put into this. Hard work pays off. Skating by because it's an online campus is cheating yourself and you don't attain and/or retain knowledge that way. Wishing all of you the best. Regards!
My college experience was pretty amazing! From thoughtful professors, to amazing other students. Going to college has been one of the best decision I have ever done, and I would do it again in a heartbeat.
Ok but really NOT worth the money! Cost $30,000 for the MBA program but I can honestly say I walked away with little new information. Professors are knowledgeable but super lenient. And they charge you a "graduation fee" with no actual graduation...Don't waste your money!
Good things: Knowledgeable professors, online courses available, master's degree in 2 - 2.5 years, no grad school admission test. Bad things: not well organized curriculum, slow and inefficient administrative processes.
I loved the program. They were very professional and left nothing in question. The online program was very manageable and interactive and I learned so much and enjoyed attending all of my classes. The professors were great. All of my credits were transferable. I was so happy to walk across the stage during graduation in Atlanta. My overall experience was two thumbs up and I definitely recommend AIU to potential students!!
The online courses were very accommodating to my work schedule. The staff members were all very helpful and easy to contact. AIU also presents the material in multiple formats (visual, written, and auditory) to cater to different types of learners. All-in-all, I very highly recommend it.
Days before graduation they kick me out due to ACGPA not high enough for financial aid. Really, right before graduation. Transfer GPA doesn't count. Cost is $400+ per hour. 4.5 x $400. Save your money and go to a top notch university were someone can explain the assignments thoroughly.
I received my A.A. (business administration), B.F.A. (visual communications), and M.Ed degrees. I would not hesitate to attend this school again if they offered a Ph.D. degree program. Challenging courses and solid education. The degrees have helped me to advance my career.
