Went to AMU for one semester, changed schoolsBusiness - Management and Administration
Went to AMU for one semester, changed schools as soon as possible. AMU is a diploma mill; canned education that is cobbled together in a sloppy way. Based on spelling and grammar, the instructors appear to be 3rd graders. AMU offers a truly worthless education.I graduated from a different school this year.

Question
Canned education.BrightComputer Science
Canned education. Professors slow to grade and when they do finally grade your assignments the feedback is subjective and unhelpful. Each department is now being told ow to teach by the department head. there is no creativity in the education. The e-books are outdated and there is no such thing as a lecture. Professors copy and paste previous professors assignments, add their "requirements" which almost always have conflicting requirements from what they copied from the previous professor. I will be leaving this school at the end of this semester. Oh, and now you don't get the option to choose your professors. You get stuck with whoever they assign you to. Stay away it is just a GI Bill Money Mill.

Question
I already had a Masters Degree in Public Administration fQuite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
I already had a Masters Degree in Public Administration from Golden Gate University before entering a Masters Program in HR Mangagement at AMU so I can easily relate my on-line experience with AMU to the brick and mortar school environment and quality of education.

I found the level of difficulty to be exactly the same at both institutions. You do have to be more self-motivated to take an on-line program, but you already knew that going in, didn't you?

All classes were relevant, and feedback was generally quick and on the mark. I took exception to one instructor's methods and appealed to higher leadership. A thorough investigation resulted in a grade change, so it is difficult to fault the system. The system worked, it was just one instructor that did not (in my opinion). I graduated this month with a 3.93 GPA. If you can't pull yourself away from the couch to focus on studying don't enter an on-line program. If you are dedicated and focused, can write in APA format, and realize you will get out of the courses what you put into them then please sign up right away. No regrets here.
