American InterContinental University Reviews - Bachelor's in Business AdministrationSee reviews of all programs at American InterContinental University
When you hear degree mill, you think of this school. It is a little costly but does not require hardly any work to pass the classes. Most classes involve modules which can be clicked through and no academic rigor is not needed to get As. It is offers 5 week classes and great deal of flexibility which is ideal for working parents. However, passing classes for this school is incredibly easy and doesnt encourage in-depth learning. It does touch on the basics of the subject. A degree from this school should not carry a lot of weight in my opinion. I have attended 3 other colleges to compare it to.
For the past 3 years that I have been with American Intercontinental University, I have found their online learning environment to be very supportive with dedicated staff from admissions, student advising, accounts, financial aid, technical support, library, lectures who demonstrate high degree of respect and ethics as they ensure that students have excellent learning experience. Courses offer theoretical and practical real-life experience in the contemporary business/ market world. Students suggestions/inputs are taken regularly and feedback provided promptly and implementation done for improvement. I highly recommend this institution to those who have the desire to start or further their learning. There is a lot of work to be done by students and one must be ready to be disciplined in meeting the deadlines and/or seek help where required. As the University fraternity do their part, let the students take advantage get what the Serious University offers.
First I transferred into AIU, I attended this university from 2005 until 2007 and I graduated. I did a volunteer internship at my local county courthouse and I work in law enforcement at the same time. Excellent professors and I learned a lot. However, I tell most people you have to be self motivated, dedicated to studying alone and being very engaged in the online discussion just beyond getting a grade. I'm currently working in the federal government as a Manager and I have about 3 years with my agency. It's all about what you put into yoru studies and what you get out of the classes that you take. However, I recommend taking class at a brick and mortar school first before going online.
American InterContinental Online was a great online program. The curriculum was great and the classes were pertinent to my career. Online access was very easy and quick response to questions. It greatly prepared me for my career and afforded me an opportunity to move up in my previous position.
As a current student I have to say that to be accredited a school goes through the proper channels. I have been to other online programs. If they are out of state the tuition is utterly ridiculous. I decided on this school after having a great experience with another online degree program from another school. I did some research and began my program here last year. I had to opt. out and after looking at a few other schools decided to return and complete my Bachelors in Business with a Project Management Specialty here. I'm a little past the half way mark in my degree program. My Experience so far has been a good one. I had to decelerate my classes from 2 every 5 weeks to 1 because my schedule is so demanding but my instructors are encouraging. I have not heard much from this advisor not too pleased with her but the one I had prior to exiting the school was wonderful. Overall its a good school. I like the intellipath and the tools they give. You will do as well as you apply yourself to this program. I am doing this because I already have the career I want I'm in it but in order to move upwardly into management this degree will help me get there. Keep focused and if you're in it then you're in it. No one can discount your education unless you allow it.
I was very disappointed in AIU's organization as a whole. When enrolled I still constantly received emails from the admissions department asking to enroll and contact an advisor (even after emailing back letting them know I was currently enrolled.) When I had problems arise the only person that I felt cared or bothered listening was my advisor. I was subjected to a zero on an assignment due to a group member not submitting the assignment like they claimed. This one zero lowered my grade a full letter, I submitted for grade review and I was blamed for not staying up until midnight to make sure the assignment was submitted by my fellow group member who stated they would. Overall I think the organization has a structure issue starting from the top. If you are someone who really cares about getting good grades, I would consider looking at another university.
I made the decision to attend American InterContinental University Online, as I have been out of school for a while at the time, and needed a better job opportunity. Even though all the classes were taken online, my schedule became more flexible, the advisors and instructors were attentive to my needs and goals, and my motivation to complete college increased. This institution is a wonderful opportunity for potential students who are currently preoccupied with their jobs and or families. There is also career advising available and the option to attend a virtual or ground graduation.
