Amberton University Reviews:
Amberton University Excellent Choice
MBA - Strategic Leadership - November 2, 2016
Amberton University is an excellent academic institution. The cost to obtain a Masters degree is an amazing value. The course material is equal to other major institutions in the country. I strongly recommend Amberton University for any degree you are seeking.

Was indeed worth it
MBA - Strategic Leadership - October 10, 2015
I earned an MBA from Amberton about six years ago. The curriculum is about the same as other institutions. It is definitely more self-paced than some traditional programs so you MUST have the discipline to dedicate time to your studies without a formal setting. Lot's of reading, lots of writing, but indeed it was well worth the money spent. I have never second guessed the decision to attend this program.

Extremely Poor Experience with Liberty University
BBA - IT - May 16, 2015
I am a current Liberty University online student in a Masters Degree program. I have one last class to complete which is an internship. The individual courses have been informative and helpful. The intensives were definitely a unique experience. The communication within the school is horrible. When I needed to contact a specific department, I was never allowed to speak to anyone. The only people you can speak with are the academic advisors and they do not have the authority to answer questions. When scheduling the intensives (you travel to Virginia to take week long classes) I needed basic information regarding parking for a rental car, obtaining a parking pass, local hotels, etc. The academic advisors did not know how to obtain a simple parking permit and would not provide me a phone number to speak with anyone. I finally found the Liberty University Police Department phone number through an intern search and obtained what I needed. The internship department refuses to speak with anyone on the phone, the advisors are told to tell you they have no phones. However, one advisor let it slip that I can email them and request a phone call. They do have phones, but the advisors are not allowed to give out the phone number. I sent the requests on three separate occasions and never received a phone call. It takes days to get responses via email. Professors do not return phone calls either, despite providing their phone numbers to the students. I have one class left and it looks like they are going to refuse to let me complete it due to an ego issue between their internship staff and a local agency who is willing to let me complete the internship at their agency. I was told if the internship department does not allow me to complete the class, I will lose my tuition money for the class. This is despite my completion of all the student requirements. Liberty does not work with students, despite what they promise you when you enroll. Do not believe them when they tell you what a great experience it is. The advisors call you constantly, until tuition is paid or there is a problem. The only reason I am still with Liberty is because I do not have the funds to start over at another University. Yes, I did contact other Universities to explore my options. Do not attend this school, find another one!

Best Affordable Professional University
MS Family Studies - September 27, 2014
I can not say anything negative about Amberton University. I received my Masters of Science in Family Studies with pride. The school is affordable compared to many other schools, it has professional educators and the experience was just amazing. Like all schools, it was not a walk in the park but it was definitely a walk worth taking. I love the fact that it's a Christian school based. I am very proud to have obtained my MS at Amberton University and will recommend them to everyone I know.

Best Value, no easy ride.
MS Managerial Science - March 3, 2013
I graduated from a top university in Florida, Florida Tech, where I also took some graduate courses, over 10 years ago. I picked Amberton because I was looking for an affordable and fully accredited university that would allow me to get a Masters Degree, while working full-time. This is my third semester at Amberton University, through Distance Learning, and I found it more challenging and time demanding than I ever anticipated. The lack of verbal skills does affect the intensity of the program since extensive and intensive reading and writing assignments are routine. I am very pleased with the program, and I will stay enrolled by taking only one course per semester, in the future. BEWARE, even one class and a full time job would keep you very, very busy. Last semester, I took 2 classes and it was madness; I had time for nothing. Overall, Amberton University is the best value you can get: the best education (very demanding) for the best price (it is the most I can afford without incurring to debt).

Great University, Challenging Workload
Master of Business Administration - Project Management - January 16, 2013
Great university. I am almost done with my MBA in Project Management and it has not been easy. Lots of work and challenging assignments, but at the end it is rewarding.

BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION MANAGEMENT - August 11, 2012
Excellent choice for anyone seeking a school that caters to working adults. Every course was challenging, but was doable for working professionals. The price is great for a regionally accredited school. Excellent education, and excellent pricing...............

Great experience to finish my BS
Bachelor of Science in Applied Studies - July 31, 2012
Great experience at Amberton. This university really has their act together to deliver learning to working adults, and their experience and professionalism shows. I completed my BS in Applied Studies by transferring in 39 hours from a big state school. Took 81 hours at Amberton to finish, and was pretty impressed at how knowlegeable and professional my profs were. As many have mentioned--Amberton is definitely a serious school. You will work, but you really get a great education. Another thing--Amberton *is* a brick and mortar school as well, so it's not just some ephermal "web entity". I have re-enrolled after a 1 year break to finish a Master's degree. That's how much I have enjoyed Amberton and the quality they provide for the investment. Don't hestitate.

The only negative thing I can say about Amberton is that there is NO job placement.
