"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."
