enrolled in the online MBA program. I have about 8
months left in the program. A lot of success in
the program will depend how much you put into it.
I will say about 20% of my professors have
been excellent while the other 80% have been terrible.
The ones that are terrible will not respond to emails,
help you understand a difficult concept and even at times
will disappear from the class 2-3 weeks at a time.
I have called the school twice about 2 different professors
who went missing for multiple weeks. The school was quick
to respond but it was disappointing the school doesn't audit
their faculty more closely.
For the faculty who were good
I can't say enough about them. They participated in our
discussions regularly. When I encountered difficulty with an assignment, they
were quick to respond via email or discussion board.
school underestimates the amount of time required for classes. Most
advisors will indicated 15 hours per week, however if you
want to do well such as maintaining a 3.5 -
4.0 GPA then book on 25-30 hours a week. If
you are in accounting, finance, or business statistics plan on
35 hours a week. These classes are the hardest in
the MBA program. Please make sure you allocated enough time
for study or assignments or you will flunk out.
As for the technology the school uses for online learning,
they use Blackboard. This is excellent software. I have used
it in undergrad and it is great for those who
are not tech savvy. Also their online library is great
for MBA research papers and is easy to navigate.
the online MBA program is well developed and I have
learned a lot so far. Just be warned as in
all online programs, you are responsible for reading all material
and doing the homework on time. There will be no
one there to make sure you do your homework and
no one should have to. After all this is a
One positive note before I end. Indiana
Wesleyan University is not a for-profit school or a diploma
mill. It is regionally accredited and is not looked down
as University of Phoenix.
