Western Governors University Reviews - MBA in Technology ManagementSee reviews of all programs at Western Governors University
Excellent school. The mentor's really help you move along and ensure you pass each course. I just graduated (2017) with a degree in MBA IT. I also used my Post 911 GI Bill and had no issues in payments (one of the reasons I chose this school; had good financial aid reviews).
If you are self motivated, driven, and can hold yourself accountable to the work that needs to be done, this university is amazing! You get one on one contact with your mentor who can help keep you motivated and moving forward, the course materials, etc. are all electronic and available online 24/7, their support forums and IT support are amazing. I did my bachelor's with them and just finished my MBA with them and my wife just started her bachelor's with them as well. GREAT SCHOOL.
Having earned my Undergraduate and Graduate Degrees from WGU, I admit that at times I felt that the material was limited. However, the fact was that there was a plethora of information and guidance available. It was I, who was expecting the program to be like a Brick and Mortar program, which offer a great deal more hand holding. I think that a previous review summed it up best "It is a GREAT program for the mature student". Another review nailed it by stating "you should expect out of it, what you put into it". I consider myself highly motivated and reworded by self excellence, to that end WGU far and above delivered!
I transferred out to pay higher tuition due to the lack of support and clarification received from Course Mentors, Student Mentors, and management. You will be fine as long as you keep your head down, and avoid noticing any of their many inconsistencies in modules.
I want to first thank WGU for providing a wonderful opportunity for me to get my MBA! To tell about me, I already have a Bachelors and a Masters but always wanted to get my MBA. Working full time and having a family is not easy when you try to study. So, I was researching to see which online university is good and I found WGU after good research. First its tag line makes lots of sense AFFORDABLE ONLINE ACCREDITED, Nailed it! I want to add one more thing to the tag line FLEXIBLE i.e study at your own pace and time. Now this university is not for everyone, it is for people who are highly motivated and have a goal on what they want from this MBA. I really learned some good lessons from my MBA and will use it in my future. I rarely used my course mentors but for sure got some help when needed, and my student mentor is awesome and is always available when I need her. I completed my MBA in 1.5 years with lot of personal life challenges and I was able to do it just because of flexibility and hard work. It was really affordable and you will have no debt at the end of your graduation.
The program structure and course content is very good and it covers all aspects of the degree program. The mentors help and encouragement is very helpful! With little discipline and time management, everyone can earn the degree.
