I actually like the school because I am learning a new field, and their is no pressure perfom. Also, the textbooks are usually the latest editions, and that's nice.

Examples include graduate students in the ?Economics and Financial Analysis for Technology Managers? who are incapable of using Microsoft Excel?s formulas to solve simple financial problems; graduate student unable to install software on their own computers; graduate students who refuse to participate in groups; and, regurgitated material throughout the class conferences. I have known for some period of time that the REAL value of the UMUC MSIT program is dubious at best but, unfortunately, a MS ? any MS ? seems to be a necessity these days. Knowing this, prior to the start of the spring 2011 semester I made the decision to reduce my efforts. Despite this, I still managed to pull a 3.5 over two courses. I suspect my ?B? this past semester had more to do with my decision not to respond to a professor?s request for an evaluation of a product associated with his company than it did my course work. (Yes. I have kept the emails, course assignments, and course work.)A lot of people will rate UMUC high - they are protecting their diploma.

I was an on-line student that used the WebTycho proprietary online learning platform. The platform was functional as long as electrical power was available.
I did experience some problems reaching my academic advisor but reaching someone 100% of the time is a problem in most organizational settings. Overall I thought the learning experience in this graduate program was very valuable and worthwhile.

I would suggest looking at the source of those comments, and realize that there are plenty of scam schools receiving great ratings, whereas UMUC is getting the shaft by people who probably didn't actually attend this university in the first place.
Top rate education and great experiences during research projects as well as exams. This school has added greatly to my ability in providing accurate research information, and has enhanced my overall education.Great school.

I too have had instances wherein I had to deal with the Bursar's office and in at least one case they weren't too receptive; however, overall I have been very satisfied with this university.
During my undergraduate education, I found that there were times wherein courses may have been offered, but not taught, and that was due mainly to lack of student sign-ups. I have found the quality of online education is equivalent, or even better, than the in-class instruction. I say that because you have to exercise more discipline in your studies, read a lot more, and focus on interacting with the rest of the class.
