AIU has an accelerated MBA program that woreMay 27 2013Business - Management and Administration
AIU has an accelerated MBA program that wore me out. I am an online student who is quite bright. I didn't have time for anything for over a year. I worked 24 hours a week and did research and writing when I was not working. Who ever thinks this is an easy school should try it. The one only negative thing I have to say is that online courses are more difficult. The research and writing is extremely demanding.
I think every personOct 26 2011School of Information
I think every person is different! And opnion for AIU from my side would be +ve since it has given me chance to get a higher-degree in life , giving my experience the coat and cream i was looking for. I will advice others to pursue such online (accredited) programs!
I graduated from University of Phoenix for myJul 02 2011Computer Science
I graduated from University of Phoenix for my undergrad, and went to Colorado Tech University to start my Masters. I decided to complete my Maters in AIU. I got lucky to get in such a descent school. Of course you can't compare its reputation to traditional universities like all other online schools, but I have had nothing but great experiences with this school. It's got the proper accreditation, and it really is true that this school is what you make of it. If you're truly interested in the program-you will go far, not only in academics but career wise.
I found this toApr 26 2010Business - Management and Administration
I found this to be a great fit for my full time work schedule and it allowed me to us real life examples for research and assignments. The textbooks were relivant to the subject matter.
I think that AIU does a relatively goodMay 05 2009Business - Management and Administration
I think that AIU does a relatively good job of educating people for real world applications. Unlike many college students, I gained most of my knowledge through practical application, but I need a degree to certify my level of education. The course work is challenging and accelerated, so don't expect to have very many free weekends to party, especially if you have a full-time job with a family. The course is designed for working adults and those are the people I would recommend apply to AIU. I have seen some subpar work from my classmates and I don't know what their grades are, so it is hard to say how the school's grading policies are. However, the worst submissions have come from people with Bachelor's degrees from major traditional universities. Therefore, what defines a good school? I would say that it depends on the student and their dedication to learning, especially in a graduate program. Afterall, anybody can get a Harvard level education at your local library. I would recommend people to AIU, but only if they are dedicated self-starters that do not need a lot of direction. That goes for any masters program though.

I am completing my first class, and IFeb 25 2008Business - Management and Administration
I am completing my first class, and I have to say that if you are not already in the business field, you might want to study up before starting this MBA program. It appears to be geared towards seasoned business professionals. The program is not easy and there is a LOT of research. Because you graduate in 10 months, you should expect to spend at least 4 hours or more EVERYDAY on the curriculum. There are no tests but you do real world proposals and business processes from real companies e.g. A famous produce company needs a new organizational structure, and you have a week to get the first part of the research design done. It is a challenge that I am utterly excited to take on, but I wish that I had a little warning:)
i am a graduateMar 07 2006Computer Science
i am a graduate in the information technology field. The school needs more equipment for on hand learning so it may provide real life scenarios and a better learninig experience
The accelerated program is fantasticDec 21 2005Business - Management and Administration
The accelerated program is fantastic. While it is heavy on research, there have been no surprises and the school is what it advertises. The program is for extremely focused and dedicated persons though. If you have any troubles with self-discipline, then I suggest a different school. The people who do have negative comments are those who could not pass the courses and are merely disgruntled with themselves. Overall, a great experience.
If you are concerned with flexibility, an onlineNov 28 2005Business - Management and Administration
If you are concerned with flexibility, an online education is great. It is self-paced and the online environment is a bit daunting at first. The financial aid department downright stinks and my MBA advisor practically hounded me. Just set solid boundaries about when and how the advisor may contact you.Overall, a positive experience.
This is my 2nd class at AIUMar 13 2005Business - Management and Administration
This is my 2nd class at AIU. I'm attending the MBA program and will finish by the end of 2005. I had lots of doubts about the degree which this Univerisity offers, especially about the accreditation: is it valid; is it accepted by other schools if I want to tranfer my classes; is it recognizable by Co. and accepted; does anybody know about this school??? To my surprise, my fellow classmates (in both classes) have the same doubts that I do. We invited the vice president, the director of the career service to come to our class. Their answers were vague and they tended to go with safe answers. Some anwers were straight forward but "sensitive issues" were not. It wasn't helpful at all.

So far, both classes were very easy, an easy "A" I would say. I wish that the Professors would work our ass off, lectures would be more intellectually challenging. I know that it's hard to implement since each class is only 5 weeks long but at least make us feel that we have earn our grades, please. Most importantly, I wish the University would focus on the QUALITY of each class that makes up the degree. If they don't notice the importance of quality and just focus on "something else" in order to lure more students in the school (e.g. high job placement rates as they claimed), they will go bankrupt sooner or later. I don't wish AIU that because it'll f... up my life too.

AIU...PLEASE TAKE SOME ACTIONS. THANK YOU.PS: i don't remember if my email is at or else. Sorry. Never used it.
