Major: Accounting (This Major's Salary over time)
I took the Bachelor of Science at one of the satellite schools CMU has and am a bit dismayed at the result. Most of the business courses are taught by MBA's who know nothing about the classes they teach (ex: Auditing by an MBA was in Advertising his whole career)

That is primarily a school issue though, as the teachers they had were quite personable, talked with everyone they could and would help where possible. Several teachers in Sociology and Psych classes were very professional and approachable. The school has major problems finding qualified people to teach their undergraduate programs at satellite schools because at this location, they are inside a small community college. On several occasions, the head of this satellite school had to teach classes because he couldnt find anyone qualified in the short amount of time he had available.

Most of the classes, teachers just use the pre-made Powerpoint slide shows that came with the book, give you pre-made study guides and handouts and then give you pre-made tests that come off the textbook website.

But I will say this, the Accounting cirriculum had several teachers that were PHENOMINAL, they should have been teaching at Wash U in STL or a major b-school players instead of here! They were hard, comprehensive and you either flat out did 110% the entire time or you failed miserably. In fact, some of the intermedate accounting courses were so great, that those

fly by losers who expected to get a degree in business and take easy accounting courses b/c they thought that was how it worked
quickly got filtered out. It was a disturbing shock to them, to say the least.

Unfortunately, CMU degrees are not well known either, and STL doesnt particularly have a hankering for them either, they prefer UMSL, SLU or WashU. This can certainly be overcome by getting a few years of professional experience under your belt to prove to them otherwise, but starting out, it will certainly not help you in the job market.
