Texas A & M University-Commerce Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (13)
I am an international student came here to study masters in technology management program. Firstly the program " Masters in Technology Management" doesn't have anything tech in the course. Most of the syllabus revolves around drones, project management and leadership. The program doesn't have any internship or CPT which is a huge disadvantage. There are no scholarships available for this course. This is more like a mini PHD where in you have to do so much research on several topics which are absolutely waste and have no relevance in the practical world. Neither is this degree valued for getting a job. The professors are only bothered about having research in APA format and doing coursework like a research with no relevance to the practical corporate world. As an international student, i took this course with a hope to get some practical exposure like internship and getting placed in a technology company. But i have wasted all my TIME, MONEY and EFFORT on this useless course. The professors are very much involved in their research work and least interested in teaching or helping students be prepared for corporate world.
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!!
Texas A & M University Commerce is an excellent campus if you are looking for lots of options. There are several courses that you can choose to take online or in the classroom. The campus diversity is widespread with students of all origins, ages, and religions. I meet colleagues all the time that went to school here and it is great for networking with other businesses as well.
Excellent faculty and very good combination of online and face to face courses. I was able to work full time as well as have a full time course load with the types of programs offered. Use of different learning styles were used by faculty for my online courses.
The university is smaller than most, but it has its perks. Due to the smaller class size of about 30-40 students, you wont be seen as just a number. It is very easy to get involved with a professor's research, and the science curriculum is challenging. The only major negative quality is the lack of nightlife due to the size of the city, but if you have a good group of friends it wont be a major issue. The faculty and security are very polite and helpful. If you need to jump start your vehicle or unlock your car due to leaving the keys in the car, they will help you out should you need it.
I chose to complete my Bachelor's degree in Business Administration and Finance. While the courses were tough, you get a lot of information and education out of them and really apply that skill set to the jobs you work. I currently am going back to complete my Master's degree in Accounting. I plan to sit for the CPA exam as well. The decision to return for my Master's degree is solely to earn enough to start a family. Currently I do not.
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.
Had a great, challenging time with my MBA. I went to TAMUC to LEARN and I did just that. Most people would complain about the difficulty, but the purpose was to get educated. TAMUC have some of the best professors who came from years of experience at the executive level. Awesome university!
