I have had the pleasure of reading about this school from many alum who attended; albeit bad or good. First off, I wanted to say that they are and accredited university, but you need to know a little bit about accreditation.
The big one is WASC (Western Association of Schools and College), which is 1 of 5 governing bodies in the USA. If you get a degree from a WASC school, then you can transfer to ANY other accredited school...at City University, they are only accredited locally, which means if you wanted to transfer to say, UW, or University of Oregon, the credits would not be transferable...so before you talk about accreditation, know what you're talking about and prospective students PLEASE be aware of what you're getting yourself in to.
I chose City University because they are the only university with a PM certificate that will earn you graduate degree credits. In addition City University is one of the few to offer a Masters in Project Management.
The teachers are working project managers so they give you real life experience.
I am very happy with my education at City University.
Having completed my MBA just some months ago, I must admit that I'm very satisfied with the quality of this school. Especially, competence and expertise of actually all lecturers reached a high standard. Most of them emphasized strongly on doing lots of research.
From the administrative point of view one can confirm that all requests and questions were answered constructively within a short time period. I'm proud to have gained not only from the docents' knowledge but also from the other students' believes and their life experiences. This degree was in general quite some hard work. However, I can recommend without any restrictions.
I started school several years ago, but dropped out. I was working a lot in a field I was interested in, but not sure where I wanted to go with it. I wondered if I would ever get back to school. Then I found City University of Seattle.
First, they are fully accredited and they accepted transfer of my credits from the junior college I had attended. Second, they actually gave me some credit for my work experience in a related field, and that really made me feel good. I got credit for what I already knew, and I felt like my time working was even more valuable, and I got my degree faster! Third, I still had to work, so I really appreciated City University of Seattle's flexible hours and learning resources. I was able to fit my classes around my work schedule and I made use of their on-line learning program for some of my classes, that helped a lot.
My first contact with the school was really when I talked to my academic advisor the first time. He was so helpful, he made the registration easy, guided me through financial aid paperwork and helped me find my way around the course offerings, to make sure I was getting the classes I needed for my degree. Any time I had questions, I just called him. If he wasn't in, he always called me back right away.
I met a lot of nice people at the University, many of them like me, working and going to school at the same time. I wasn't the only one who had tried college once before, and that made me feel good too, I wasn't alone. Over all my experience with City University of Seattle was very positive, and it got me the job I have today, which is great, so I'm happy.
