Capella University Reviews - Business Masters
Review of Business Masters Degrees
If lack of communication and high levels of incompetence is something you crave to deal with than Capella is the place for you. They overall program was great. The professors were awesome. Unfortunately, the business, financial aid, &a advisor suck!
The flexpath program can be very good since there will be times when you cannot turn in a full assignment during a particular time. During those times be careful with activity/participation. Those submissions, unfortunately may be read with subjective eyes. If they feel things was not explained enough they will not count your weekly participation. In my case I always did my submission the same way and found out later after I was dropped from a course that my previous participation submission was not counted. Because I was using financial aid, I had to pay immediately out of pocket - which I had to borrow - back since the financial aid obligations was not met. Then I had to write and appeal to get back in school/class. This whole process took close to a month before I started back, meanwhile the financial aid clock was still ticking. So I still had to have a certain amount of course/credits completed to keep my financial aid. If you choose to take a chance on them be careful because a mistake on their part could cause you problems that they cannot or will not fix.
I completed my Master's degree in Business Administration from Capella University and support them 100%. I have recommended Capella to my peers and had several of them apply based on my recommendation. I was a single parent while pursuing my degree and received support throughout the process from my instructors, advisors, and administrative team. When I decided to pursue my doctoral degree, I chose another university based on price and it was a terrible decision. I left and came back to Capella and couldn't be happier!!
I completed two degree programs with Capella University. The school was founded with the promise to promote and aid students to excel in their programs. ( Personal opinion) This is an organization that aids the adult learner to research and study to prove competency. Many students are not good with time management/ or being accountable due to procrastination. The programs will help you to succeed in the corporate world. There are two processes to observe. First: the theory aspect. Second: the application process. Capella instructors push the aspect of critical thinking, development of thinking, and utilization of present theories. (Supported by articles written by industry leaders with published work.)These methodologies allow the student to visualize the concepts and place the ideas into their environment. I would recommend the school.
This is the best program I have been a part of and for those who think it's a scam, you're wrong. The level curriculum is very challenging and requires a high level of determination and self-motivation to get through. Do you research before judging. This program has helped me to develop strong analytical and critical thinking skills and I'm able to effectively develop high level corporate strategy that is relevant and consistent with current business standards. I am confident that this degree will greatly enhance my ability to be competitive in the business world. Thank you, Capella!
Capella university is garbage do not go here if you can help it. They are trying to say I owe money for a class that was dropped before it started saying I was not supposed to get full disbursement when clearly I have been getting full disbursement every quarter with one class. I have asked them on numerous occasions to validate the debt in writing they still have not done it. But they state the debt is valid then why can they not validate it. I am beyond furious with their business practices if I could sue them I certainly would as a matter of fact I may look into that as a option. Somebody needs to teach them they can't falsely state you owe debt you do not. So I am unable to finish school because of this "false debt" they claim I owe. I basically wasted over 60,000 with them to still not end up with a degree this school ruined my life. Please do not attend here if you can help it
Capella is a great university to attend. As with all schools, the experience is as good as the effort you put into it. I'm currently in a Management position where I have the need to get an MBA to advance me to senior leadership. Capella is flexible, affordable, and challenging.
Like anything else in life you get out if it what you put into it. I attended a 4 year resident State university for my BA and did very few papers or projects. Did attend a lot of lectures and sat many exams. Capella, Graduate School of America when I started, was more real world experience. Professors had weekly contact with me and provided good feedback on work. Yes the tuition is a bit high but my employer offered tuition reimbursement so I didn't have an issue. Courses were well structured and easy to follow. Only advise I can offer is really research any school you plan to attend and make sure they are regionally accredited accept no other type of accredation and if they don't give you that info up front run.
Let me begin by saying that I am a working professional who unfortunately was not able to attend traditional school. My current employer supports higher education and is in alliance with Capella University. I trust my employer who is an industry giant and therefore decided to give Capella a chance.
The courses were both relevant and challenging. It was not easy by far and I was definitely exhausted. I did feel that my success and/or failure was completely on me. I did not have a professor reminding me to do my work but that was fine. After all...I am an adult.
Now, I do see that Capella gets bad reviews for being a For-Profit organization, but as a business major, I do not see For-Profit as being all that bad as long as the organization complies with regulatory requirements to keep their accreditation as I see Capella doing. Furthermore, I see For-Profit as an advantage as the organization is able to recruit and retain high quality professors who would like to get paid well. After all, we all do. I have met many professors working for a non-profit educational institute who are unhappy and unsatisfied and do not provide support for their students.
So in closing, I am happy with the quality of my education. The on-line environment is fast-paced and challenging. Not for everyone. You have to be committed and self-motivated.
