First off, DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL!Quite BrightOther
First off, DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL! If you are interested in the game design program, do not waste your breath. The best professor just left to go to Art Institute. He was the only professor that was connected to the gaming industry.

The school is merging with the Dunwoody campus which means you'll will be going back and forth between the Buckhead campus and the Dunwoody campus (which is 13 minutes for those who drive and probably longer for those that have to ride MARTA).

The school store does not contain all of the supplies that teachers require for class. I spent over a $100 on art supplies for ONE class! The gaming computer lab is down 10 computers out of 24 computer. Our school doesn't even have wireless internet for students.

A lot of student advisers, student accounts, and financial aid people do not know what is going on. Expect a lot of conflicting views on policies and where you are suppose to go to get things done.Please, spend an extra $20,000 to go to a better school. Do research. Visit the school more than one or two days.

Question
Master programs at AIU are designed for studentsBusiness - Management and Administration
Master programs at AIU are designed for students who are practing in their current field. These degrees are not for individuals who want to change careers.

This was a big mistake. I consider the education I received at AIU as a crash course in management.Unfortunately, the company I am employed by does not recognize this program or school as a valid education. People who are not holding position in management should not be admitted to the MBA program at AIU.

The rewards I got from AIU is a $30,000 debt. My salary or position have not changed, therefore I am left with a student loan I cannot afford. My view on AIU education is added responsibility on an already strapped for cash budget and added stress. Basically, I have dropped the title of MBA on resumes hoping I can get a higher paying position using my undergraduate degree.

I am in the process of studying for a Master Degree at Northwestern University hoping this will enhance my efforts in obtaining a job that will pay for AIU and Northwestern education.

The bottom line is I will be in debt for a long time.
High school and college students should be very careful in chosing what school to attend. First, accleration programs are extremely high and job prospect are slim if you are not currently practing in the field. I would recommend choosing a school that offer internships and job placement to better one chances of finding employment in their chosen field of study.

Question
I signed on forFinance
I signed on for AIU Online's MBA program to enhance my credentials. Since graduating My degree has not enhanced my prospects for better employment. The AIU career office does not have any contacts with hiring managers. All they can do is send you links to job ads on Hotjobs-type websites.
