I graduated MBA in Finance 2010. This was a very good experience, all my professors were very knowledgeable. One thing that I would recommend the school, they should make a tougher admission to business. I felt it was too easy for me to get admission to this school. And stop advertising online, good school it should advertise from words of mouth.

I thought City U provided and excellent education. The instructors we outstanding in a majority of cases. The best part about it, I was able to attend at night which was a huge plus considering I was also working full time. The school I attended was in Tacoma.

Apparently, they did not teach you how to spell or check your grammar.

This was a frustrating and underwhelming experience. Were City U not the only Bachelors education program in Seattle, I would not have gone here. Even now I regret it. The teachers, administrators, and school is extremely disorganized and lacks any student support. Even while in the program, I actively discouraged others from going here.

I have lots of people I once knew studying at City University Seattle, one of them I particularly want to mention is a student who is studying language course at the university. It is very unusual to me that, she has no abilities to communicate whatsoever, but passed the exams again and again, even though she was catched once because of cheating, but not been punished nor warned. I had asked her to quit such kind of irresponsible school but she thinks it is easy for her to gain degrees because of City U is so "easy". And I knew lots of people have no abilities nor efforts in studying at this university, there are some of them just graduated from this university, it is so weird to me. In addition, some teachers are only part-time. I think this university is a waste of money if you want to study the real knowledge and earn Valuable degrees. Because once the institution becomes irresponsible for what they are teaching, this information could be spreaded out to relatives, friends, or even on Media, it may soon damage your own benefits. THINK AGAIN ON WHY YOU NEED A DEGREE! But I would recommende you to go there if you just want a easy degree.

So far this school has been a great experience. I love the instructors and their quality education. They are well educated and have many real-world experiences about them. The financial aid has been interesting. I am using 40% of my Post 9/11 GI Bill and the Veteran's Rep at the school is very helpful and knows her stuff! In addition, working with the regular financial aid team, they were full of knowledge and got back to me very quickly. Since this program is newer and still developing, there are some kinks. But, so far they have been fixed by the staff. Overall, great education so far and the tuition isn't that bad.

When ever an issue arose, you were reminded it was a 'self directed program,' and you were encouraged to either figure out your problem or bear the burden of the negative consequences alone.

I am a current student and have had quite the opposite experience. Whenever I had an issue and called, the issue was fixed that same day. An example is a unique quarter I am taking, where I am taking 4 classes. I needed to register for 4, but the system had an error because I am only slotted 3. I contacted my adviser and the issue was fixed in 2 hours of receiving the email, and she also emailed all students informing them she fixed the issue for each and every one of us. I am not sure if you attempted to properly contact the correct person, but I have had nothing but good luck with them.

This was a great school and program. It was tough but the teachers are always available to assist. The curriculum was very prevalent to my career and easy to apply in my daily job. I could literally learn it the night before and I apply it the next day. I highly recommend this school for anyone looking to grow and develop their management skills.

The English program in this school is very very poor. Most of teachers are not native speakers, and students cannot learn anything at all. Although many complaint to CityU through the survey by end of the course, CityU have never taken it seriously and changed, those teachers still there, the program does not change. The tuition fee for English classes are very expensive and non-worthy. The Head of English program, C. K, who are trying to hide the problems of the program.

I did my MBA emphasizing in Project Management at City University of Seattle. Overall studying experience was wonderful. Staffs and professors are very nice and helpful!! I did learn a lot of things while I was taking classes in campus. I could finish my two years MBA degree in one year since the classes schedules are very flexible. I can take online or on campus. I could do my internships at the same time as well. Overall it is a great school! I am happy that I went there!

I started an MBA with the Edinburgh Business School in 2001, but was drafted early on into a PhD in Europe, so I dropped the MBA. I recently taught 41 courses psychology in CityU's Canada program (the Vancouver-based program was in need of experienced PhD's at the time), and I ended up with earned tuition waivers for 33 credits. So I put the waivers to work and started the MBA in fall of 2012. I found that the MBA courses stretched me and were very practical. The instructors were very professional, responsive and support was there when I needed it. I struggled with Economics but ended up with a 3.9 for that course. I developed skills I did not have previously. I met a lot of great peers in the program, many working for Boeing and Microsoft, and I learned a lot from the students. I'm generally a top-tier student and was in the MBA program as well. This program allows you to bring what you know into the program, especially in the weekly discussion board portion, and that is where a lot of learning takes place as you mix with other students. Some of the students are high performers in industry and one can learn a lot from them. While there I further developed my own leadership style; each course has a team project component and that's where one can experiment with leadership development. Team projects are always challenging due to times zones and individual work schedules. I teach MBA's and Commerce students (OB, psychology, sociology) for another institution, so my review is both subjective and objective. CityU's MBA program now has good business accreditation. For the economics and finance courses I'd recommend taking just one at a time unless you can make the time or you are good at math/algebra and formulas. I found that a tutor really helped me. This year CityU also started an internship program.
