I have attended different schools and universities whichQuite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
I have attended different schools and universities which allow me to truly compare the quality of a school. And what I found was the worse school ever!!! They randomly place you in classes that have no affiliation to your degree requirements despite numerous emails, phone calls and complaints. The course work is awful; do not expect to actually learn anything in the class room that can be used in the real world. Half of the teachers are instructing classes they have no idea about; I had one class on contract modification and options that had a book assigned to it that never mentioned contract modification, options or anything to that regard. When you question things like this you get tossed in a circle from teacher to teacher because the supervisor of the teachers is another teacher. There are no checks and balances. It is absolutely absurd. I have been enrolled in international classes 6 times which would be great if I worked abroad but my degree is business administration with a concentration in government contracts. This is the kind of things they pull all the time; it is a constant battle with the faculty and if you do not pay attention you will be assigned classes that do not pertain to your degree and will be stuck in school for the next 9 years. The course work is a joke you have to simply comment twice a week on some mindless question that every other person in the class is also answering so the only difficult is attempting to regurgitate the exact same answer in different verbiage. I would never suggest any one go to this school EVER. I got stuck as a transfer student and only had a few classes remaining so I painfully worked through it. STAY AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I got my degree and I was evenBusiness - Management and Administration
I got my degree and I was even able to land interviews at the World Bank for the Program Assistant position. This degree definitely opened many doors for me, and it prepared me well for my graduate degree program (MBA) that I am about to finish. If you like small classes, and almost "family" feel when you get to school, look no further. Also, transfer of credits is very generous, and the school will do everything to get you on the right path.

I finished my degreeAverageBusiness - Management and Administration
I finished my degree program in 1998 and have had success due to the degree. No regrets there, however, I wish I had attended a better known college.
