"I recently graduated Amberton University’s with a MBA in Strategic Leadership, and a graduate certificate in Change Management, that I took entirely online. I believe that it is a fantastic school to consider if you are willing to do the work required, have a real desire to learn, are a working adult that cannot quit working to go to school full time, and are looking for a quality education without being saddled with crushing debt. Many years ago I worked for a big company headquartered in the Dallas, TX area. Amberton was the “go to” college of choice for those looking for tuition reimbursement. It is a brick and mortar school that caters to working adults who want to go back and complete a bachelors or earn a masters degree. This is not a school for those looking for IM sports, social fraternities, campus activities, and the trapping of those colleges catering to the 18-22 year old crown. Typical students are working full time, attending at night. I myself completed my BS from a large state university in Michigan. I started taking classes for a MS, but dropped out after completing four courses for work reasons. Several years passed. I saw I was passed-over for advancement while those with a masters were picked. Talking to a HR person at work it was suggested that I focus on a MBA versus a MS. I looked at a number of university choices in MI, and was shocked at the cost. Since I would be paying out of pocket, I needed to look at my most economical options. I was already in the middle of my career. Harvard was not going to be in my future, so I focused on colleges that were budget priced while regionally accredited, and ranked in reviews reasonably well. I also looked at graduation rates. After talking to several admission people I realized I was being steered into their online programs, due to my work-life that required occasional business travel. It was then I realized that if I took classes online I did not need to limit my choice to a school near my home. Scouring the Internet, I came across a US News college ranking for online schools that has Amberton on their top ten for value and top ten for quality. (they no longer do that ranking, but others do). I thought - "Hey - Amberton! They now offer degrees online?" Taking classes online is a lot different than traditional classes, and they have pointed that out for you. Syllabuses there are great, clearly defining what it takes to get good grades. Most profs provide good rubrics for assignments as well. I had one prof that was less than great. Make sure you check one of the "Rate the Prof" websites. You will work, and work hard. Be prepared to write, because there is not a lecture hall to amaze your prof with your wisdom. Most classes have a recorded lecture by the prof. You will read your textbook assignments and write responses either on a posted forum or turned-in as homework for grading. If the assignment is “write 500 words on. . .” that is likely for a C. Did I mention you will write? Prepare for more research and writing if you want the A grade. Anyone suggesting this school is "easy" apparently does not think 15 – 18 hours of work time per class, per week, is a big deal. I typically took two classes a term. To graduate on time I took one term with three classes, and along with working a full time job that was nuts. Hint - you can buy your textbooks from the school, but I never did. I found them far cheaper online. Many I rented. A couple I got in Kindle. When you graduate you will be proud. Celebrate by taking a nice vacation with your family, like I did, rather than just going out for a modest dinner like the people with crushing student loan debt after going to a more prestigious school. MBA 101 – It’s all about the return on your investment. Don’t go broke going to school."
