Student & Graduate Reviews

"I did not find Columbia Southern University's M.B.A. program to be as easy/breezy as some have stated- there was constant reading, research and writing throughout the year-and-a-half I completed my online M.B.A. degree. The classes are set up for students to pass and I wondered if some students were being granted A's without making as strong an attempt as the more serious pupils, but if you make an effort you will definitely believe you truly earned the degree when you finish- I know I have a lot more free time now that it's over, and I do feel a sense of accomplishment now. I enjoyed some of the coursework and being able to do assignments at home, but I had a big problem with the lack of communication and what seemed to be arbitrary grading practices by some of the instructors, to the point I wondered how much time and effort they were putting in to read and grade the assignments- for example, I might get 100% on an assignment I made a good effort on, but then have my score drop to a low-90's/high 80's range (sometimes with no explanation) for a project wherein I clearly made a substantial effort. I suppose this situation is more apt to occur with online degree programs, but improvements could be made to ensure everyone (both students and professors) are taking their responsibilities seriously. Overall, Columbia's courses are well-organized and provide a solid overview of the subject matter. It worked well for me, but I was relieved when the classes and this type of grading were over."

"This is a decent school for continuing your upper level education as a working professional. The course work is solid and the schedule is pretty easily to follow and maintain. The professors are helpful. The only thing is with online be education you choose how much you get out of the program so it's not IV league by any means but if you want to gain the knowledge you need to further your career this is a good school to achieve it with."

"It was tremendous learning experience ever with CSU. Great professors and staff. They provided support indeed and contributed lots of their working and living experience to the contents that helped understanding easily new concepts and definitions. Our professional career and understanding enriched with many updated business cases and sharp analysis from professors. The MBA changed my life at all!"
