"Overall, I found this to be a quality school at a reasonable price. I graduated in 2009 from their MBA program and was very satisfied with the quality of instruction and the relevance of the course material. I have an engineering undergrad from a tier 1 school and selected CityU due to the flexibility of the online instruction and the relatively low cost. I was employed full time while taking two classes per quarter which was sporty! Between the readings and assignments, the program was very time consuming; however, this is to be expected in any decent graduate program. I have since earned another graduate degree from a more well known school and honestly did not note any significant difference in the quality of instruction or difficulty of course material. As far as the instructors are concerned, I can recall only two who failed to meet my expectations. One instructor from a project management course was simply atrocious and consistently failed to provide constructive feedback to students in a timely manner. His supervisor was informed and took appropriate action. Another instructor, from a business law class, was simply mediocre: He provided good feedback but it wasn't always timely. The rest of my instructors met or exceeded my expectations. As far as accreditation is concerned, this is a regionally accredited school (the most critical accreditation for all colleges in the U.S.). The business school; however, is not AACSB accredited (it does have candidacy for ACBSP accreditation). The difference? AACSB is associated with larger top tier business schools at larger universities while ACBSP typically encompasses the smaller non-research institutions. This affects the marketability of your CityU MBA; however, it doesn't affect the quality of what you will learn. Additionally, the negative influence of not having an AACSB MBA can be diminished by having a "brand name" undergrad and/or by relevant work experience. Bottom line. If you go to CityU, you are buying an education, not a degree. The programs here will provide you the tools you need to succeed but it will still be up to you to actively seek opportunities and apply what you have learned. You are not going to get a foot in the door simply by having a degree from this school. You will; however, graduate with the knowledge required to succeed on your own merit."

"It is a small school. I think that academic program is sometimes too easy and has to be developed better. I wish we go more in depth with material. We need more career center help."

"The graduate program is very competitive and is taught by outstanding instructors. The workload is thorough and manageable. One needs to be focused, proactive, and hardworking to keep in line with the degree requirements or quarterly expectations. You need enough money to meet the quarterly tuition fee or credit fees."
