Highly recommend - Challenging cirrculium well worth it.
February 24, 2016
This is my second graduate level degree with Ashford University. I graduated with my MAOM in 2013 and returned for my MBA. The MBA program was challenging and at often times really hard. Online programs have this stigma that they are somehow easier. Technology has made it easier to ACCESS learning opportunities. The cirrculium is just as challenging as a traditional in- classroom learning institution. You must be self motivated and be prepared to show ...

Financial Aid
October 19, 2015
I really like this school, but I do not like the way they handle student's financial aid & disbursements. It seems like every time I have a stipend due, I go through these same issues. They want to ensure we turn our work in on time and ensure we have no outstanding financial holds, yet you take your time with issuing refunds when they are due. My thing is, if I don't owe you any ...

They add an extra class when you get ready to graduate
October 17, 2012
This school is definitely operating to make a profit. They make the most of student loan money. I do not have a problem with that as long as in turn I receive the education I agreed upon. I have received my B.A. and decided to continue on with my MBA. I enjoyed the classes, felt like I learned alot and the program worked well with my schedule since I work full time. As I approached ...

Ashford University is great!
September 26, 2012
Ashford University is a great school! I've been at this institution for three years and had no problems with the teachers, students and staff. I would recommend this school for those that are serious and ready for committment in their academics. I already obtain my Bachelors degree in Organizational management and now i'm currently working on my MBA!

Great School for Military
May 28, 2012
I agree that communication can be bad between the financial aid department and the student, however it doesn't really matter if you are military or getting your schooling paid for from your employment. If you need money to live on or pay bills then it might not be the place for you. The teachers are great, they are knowledgeable and don't give away free grades. I agree that the discussion board can be kinda a ...

Great School
February 6, 2012
I am a current graduate student at Ashford (Online studies) and I must say it has been a challenge. For the most part, my instructors are very educated and trained in the courses they teach. There have been some instructors who have pushed my level of learning to a higher degree of expectation. It is difficult for me to believe that some state they did not have to work hard to earn their degree. I ...

BEWARE!! Go somewhere else for your advanced degree
January 9, 2012
If you are thinking about getting a Project Management M.B.A. from Ashford University then STOP NOW! and go somewhere else. Ashford University FAILS to review the Project Management Body of Knowledge, which is REQUIRED for both the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) AND the Project Management Professional (PMP) certifications. Ashford's Project Management Specialization is not really an M.B.A. either since they do not discuss business plans. Be warned, don't waste your time or money ...

I have been taking courses from Ashford University online program for ten months. I think the courses are challenging but the lack of interaction from a online course is limited. Meaning I would think the instructor should be more proactive with the subject instead of reactive. The instructor don't give any guidance; They just grade what you have posted.  I am not sure if I made  the right choice just yet. I had two interviews so far and both had a way of saying"You taking online courses" as if it was a waste or second rate. I'll see after I graduate in August how the job hunt goes....

I am currently attending Ashford University and have very little negative to say about them. I listen to people complain that they didn't receive phone calls back for weeks and I will say to that, go to a Campus, stand on line and see how fast you get things done. The University try's to say it is inexpensive but it's not!! I guess that would be my only gripe with them but I look at it this way, If I buy something cheep that is normally what I get, CHEEP. I won't settle for a cheep education. If you are looking to attend Ashford University, be ready to EARN your degree, it's no B/S it's hard and they expect a lot out of you. This is no on line degree, it is a fully accredited Private University that's been around since 1918....GREAT SCHOOL !

The person who stated the MBA program is unaccredited is completely, totally incorrect. In fact Ashford is both accredited by the HLC and has also been nominated to the President's Higher Education Council for the last three years. Ashford is also a sponsor of Quality Matters, a program specifically designed by accredited schools for developing quality educational standards. I am looking forward to a prestigious MBA from a great school.

I graduated with my MBA from Ashford, June 2009.  I am hearing a lot of negative feedback about this school. However, I can not say I had the same bad experience. I have learned a lot, and the course work schedule worked around my work schedule. Before deciding to attend Ashford, I looked at many other schools like University of Phoenix, AIU, etc and they all had aggressive counselors who worked for them, not just Ashford. I think if you do the coursework, read the materials, you will get a good education. It doesn't matter where you go, its what you make of it, and knowing how to sell yourself when that great job opportunity comes knocking. 

God Bless...

Ashford University's MBA program has provided me with an excellent educational experience. I would highly recommend it to any professional who is looking to pursue an MBA or any advance degree that they offer. All of my professors are PhD’s who have excellent educational backgrounds and challenge their students. I am a much better business leader today, because of Ashford University.

The school is what you make it.  I earned my undergrad through Ashford and I have finished half of my MBA studies with them.  Every class I've ever taken through Ashford uses a full-length college text (500-700 pages) and you are assigned to cover the materials on every page of that text book.  So anyone who says the curriculum is a joke has to be cutting corners.  They cut corners by skimming the extensive readings and getting to the meat of the topic, but they're only selling themselves short.  If you do the program the way it's set up, you should expect to spend 4-6 hours a week covering the readings and completing your research.  From there, you will spend about 2 hours putting together your well-thought-out threads (online postings) and answering feedback from others.  If you're an undergrad student, you will have a weekly objective exam and if you're a graduate student you will have a weekly written assignment that demonstrates your understanding of the topic.  Don't be mislead, Ashford University is a great school.  All of my professors have earned terminal degrees (Ph.D., D.B.A, ect.) and expect quality in your work.  Those individuals who cut corners or present poor postings with serious grammatical errors pay in the end with their GPA.  I attended two years of public college here in Florida before I transfered to Ashford.  I transferred with a 4.00 and graduated with a 3.71 (If that says anything).  Ashford's program is much more difficult and required twice the amount of my personal time to keep up (Sorry UF..Go Gators!).

I am currently attending Ashford University and i have nothing but positive things to say and can't say other wise. My Enrollment Advisor was Jose Beltran and I love the amount of help he has given me and nothing was excluded I knew fully what I was getting into and my advisor still calls from time to time to check on me better than most school. is not affiliated with Ashford University in any way.
