Major: Economics (This Major's Salary over time)
I have been attending Strayer for 14 months now. When I applied for the Bachelor in Economics I was not expecting much, but I got positively surprised with most of the Faculty. The great majority of the professors know the subjects that they teach. Student interaction is limited, but they try to push interaction by mandatory threaded discussions. I had several asynchronous classes, and a few synchronous classes. Some advanced classes are available synchronous only; it is like an audio conference, but with graphics.

I have a full time job, and I am expected to work overtime on an unpredicted and seasonal basis. That means I would miss many classes on a traditional school. This was the most important factor on my decision to attend Strayer. Their format works perfectly for me, and I am actually learning.

Good things about it: I can manage my time the way I want; I can attend most classes from my home; books are good (but expensive).

The bad things: It is pricey compared to traditional schools with same reputation; there is not much interaction with fellow students.

I would do my MBA there, but they are not accredited by AACSB. They are accredited by the MSCHE, though.
