American InterContinental University Reviews:

Overall a good school

MBA Human Resource Management - June 1, 2015

I completed my MBA- Human Resources degree in April of this year. As far as the professors, I think it is hit or miss...like any school. Some are very interactive and some you rarely hear from. I will say throughout the program, I never had a professor that did not respond to my questions and/or emails. I had two advisors. The first sent emails and called often to make sure that I was on track, I never heard from the second one that I got around two months before the program ended. I do not think the classes were "easy A's", I actually put forth effort and finished with pretty good grades. I feel like the professors clearly stated what was expected of the students. I will say that there were some students that did not like Intellipath but I loved it. I learned a lot more from the classes that included Intellipath than I did from the classes that were strictly research papers and discussion boards. Intellipath gave me an opportunity to continue studying the information to improve my grade, but you do not get that option with research papers. I think whether or not you like this program will depend on your learning style. I do not retain as much from research as others do. I did not like that every class had a group project as the final assignment, but I am not a fan of group assignments because I like to be solely responsible for my own grades. The only other issue I had was with my refund checks. They were all different amounts (by over $1000) and no one could really explain why. The financial department is not the best but overall the advisors and professors were pretty good. I was on the fast track/accelerated program so my classes so I did not have to register for classes. At the end of the program, there was no hassle...everything went smoothly and I received my diploma within the projected time frame. I have not had any trouble from employers by having a degree from AIU. I would recommend this school to others because there were no major issues with the program.

Avoid this school at all costs. The support staff have no idea or knowledge of the workings of online schools. For example, I asked them, "what learning platform does AIU use, Blackboard e-college, or Moodle." The admissions people did not even know. They could not even access there own software to tell me the course for the major that I'm interested in. For basic online school knowledge I give this school a failing grade. Avoid, avoid, avoid.

So, I have been with AIU for a while now. Actually I have done all of my schooling through them and have been working on my MBA with them. I chose AIU because it was prety much the fastest track to a degree as possible. I didn't shoose the degree because of its prestigious reputation. I just wanted to get a college degree just so I could have one...that probably doesn't make sense to most of you but that's how I am. My experiences have been a toss up. I enjoyed the undergrad program. It was interesting. The teachers are hit or miss, some are helpful and others are a complete waste of time. I suppose you will get that from any school. I like the flexibility of the school, I don't have to attend class on any particular day and can do all of my work on the weekend. I graduated with a pretty good GPA, a 3.90. I worked for that GPA, but not everyone does. I notice that a lot of people do not give forth their absolute effort and use their full potential. I only wish that i could find out how the others are being graded. I worked hard for my grades, but I know that this school will pretty much pass anybody if you put your name on a piece of paper. I really do not like the school administration. The school has not been helpful when I have needed them. There have been a few times that I have deployed or moved and I needed time off to take care of things and they gave me a really hard time. The staff is never attentive to your needs and you have to call them back, because they won't call you back. It seems that I have had a different student advisor about every three months for some reason. I'm not too sure why, but I do not like it. Whenever you have a problem you deal with a new stranger. I did have one really good student advisor but that was a while back and she is no longer my advisor. One thing that I really like about the school is that they do your schedule for you. You don't have to worry about registering for schools, and the books have always come in the mail on time. As far as value goes, I don't pay for the program so it doesn't apply to me that much. But, if I had to pay for it out of my own pocket I would definitely not go to school here. It just isn't worth it. You can get better programs from schools that are accredited for less money. When it comes down to it, this is a for-profit school. They are looking to make money off of you....and god do they give it to you with the sticker price.
