"The school is out right unethical and dishonest. When I enrolled, we agreed on what courses I would need to complete the program. Once I sent them in my application fee, I was informed I had to take additional course work.... typical bait an switch tactic... so unethical and illegal. When I challenged them, there response was we can break and change the rules at any time, and we do not have to honor our word or agreements- even written ones. Stay away....they do not want to educate you...they just want to rob you."

"The faculty are nice and mean well, but are underpaid and so I can't really blame them for not always being available when you need them. The admin staff or 'academic advisors' as they are called, in the school of business are under-qualified and will get back to you when they feel like it. Jovan Zamorano was always great example of the level of incompetence I grew to expect when dealing with the staff."

"CSU is no joke, that is why the university is regionally accredited. The weekly course work is highly structured to expose learners to the 21st century business environment. As 100% online university, mentors present those required guide and explanation for your success. Some mentors went extra length to arrange WebEx meeting with learners which provided networking opportunity, and better understanding of the course content. i will recommend the CSU DBA to those that want to have the knowledge plus the Dr. behind their names. For those seeking for the later, CSU is not the place,"

"The DBA at Calsouthern is No Joke, if you want an easy Doctorate, then this program is not for you. The University is regionally accredited with the WASC and currently a candidate for accreditation with the ACBSP. The faculty and staff are very helpful and they are always available to help the students. Some professors are far too hard, its not even funny. I specifically remember my MIS professor who is a Texas A&M Alumni, getting an A in his assignments is as hard as winning a Grammy for some artists... The tuition is not as cheap as listed on the website, if you add the books and hidden fees, the DBA would cost you around 30 to 32,000 $, which is still very good compared to regionally accredited universities. Finally, I would recommend this university to everyone who is looking to earn his degree while working, it will take time and effort, but is worth it."
