Texas A & M University-Commerce Reviews
You will not find another AACSB (gold standard) accredited college for this price. Some of that is reflected in the quality of the online portal, and the classes are quite full so it can be a little tough to get instructor interaction. However, it has not been a problem for me. The level of rigor is a good blend since I continue to be a working professional as well as having a busy personal and family life. I think that's the critical piece, you can take these classes, and learn everything that you need to know about business decision-making without enormous sacrifices. If you are dependent on an MBA to radically change the course of your life, then you should probably aim a little upwards; but if you are simply looking to learn about business decision-making (particularly if, like me, you are in the military with no expsosure to fundamentals of accounting, finance, and marketing) then this is right up your alley. Highly recommend!
1. Very low cost degree, 2. Self Taught, feedback is 48-72 hours, and is only as quality as the question you ask. It Professor thinks it part of the syllabus, they will direct you to the syllabus or student discussion chats prior to contacting them.
This school is awesome! Top notch education that prepared me for life during and after 20 years of military service. I was most impressed by the involvement of the professors in student success. Most of the classes were very engaging, and the immediate feedback from professors and peers enhanced the quality of study. Even while completing rigorous work, the amount of support I received was very encouraging and made the toughest assignments enjoyable to experience. The team projects placed students in a situation to, not only hold themselves accountable, but hold their peers accountable which is not an easy thing to do sometimes. However, great relationships formed and a sense of accomplishment shared by others who assisted in meeting goals can not be matched. I have definitely come away from my program with a positive view of my career, which is just getting started (again).
Texas A&M University - Commerce made my online time earning my Bachelors degree accessible and achievable. Yes there were many rigorous days where I wish I could sit down with my professor face to face, but if you have resources of your own outside of class that helps too. As a working single mother of a a little boy, I really enjoyed that I was given the freedom to be as creative as possible in my class. I loved my online time at TAMUC. I felt so welcome on the campus when I finally got to visit it during graduation weekend. TAMUC is home, GO LIONS!!
Getting a degree is nice but it doesn't guarantee you a job. Don't "pick something that interests you"" or "do what you like to do", those are hobbies, pick something that's always in demand and can pay the bills. Then do your hobbies when you clock out.
First of all, I am an active duty member of the Navy and I did a lot of research when I decided to get an MBA. Being a Texas resident but having to rely on tuition assistance from the military I chose TAMUC because of price, AACSB accreditation, and reputation. Also, this was one of the few schools in Texas that had an entirely online MBA option. I started the program in the Fall of 2012 and completed my degree in Fall 2015. This program is no "walk in the park" especially for someone like me working full time and having family obligations but it is very attainable. There is a lot of work involved and I have learned so much from some very talented and dedicated professors. Although the program is online, most of the instructors require live interaction via ClassLive or even web camera conferences so TAMUC really utilizes the latest technology to bring the student into the classroom. I really just can't say enough positive things about their MBA program. Don't get all wrapped up in MBA rankings. I mean sure if you can afford the time and money to attend HBC, Stern, or Wharton, do it. But if you're like me, wanted a sound education to complement an established technical and professional background, this is an excellent program. Take my word for it- TAMUC's MBA program is GROSSLY under-ranked.
My school was very conservative and not at all diverse. I felt a bit out of place being the only hispanic in the room sometimes.
I would not choose a different degree. I enjoy Accounting very much.
Pick something that will get you a job.
