I am going use the points made by Anonymous because the comments are exactly mine as well: It's a 13 month accelerated program and I completed it easily, with very little effort. Granted, I have been in the IT field for 10 years, but I expected to actually learn something new. There were quite a few students in my class that really had no business being there. They all graduated, however, which means they had to have gotten at least a B in all classes. Basically, if you're already in the field and you want to pay $30k to have a master's very quickly, it might be worth it. If you actually want to learn something, go somewhere else. This program will not even prepare you for an entry level help desk job Only 14 more years on my loan and I have nowhere near the skills of other IT security folks. Skip school find on the job training in the real world is my advice.

This school is VERY expensive and the instructors are a joke. Not one instructor fallows the schools procedures or processes. Example I copied a paper form the internet and the schools GREAT similarity score software “software is junk” gave me a 100% similarity score and I got an “A”. Then I have submitted a paper that I did and the similarity score was 40% and the instructor gave me an “F” and said it was being submitted to the school for submitting another student’s paper. I have talked to other schools and students and they don’t have this similarity software. If you are paying big money for a degree that you want to learn about I would not go to this school…..

AIU nonetheless a good and resourceful university who runs its program both on-campus and off-campus. I love its program and offerings. Interestingly MS IA is only offered online by a limited set of universities which makes this degree valuable !

I just completed the Master's in Information Technology. It's a 13 month accelerated program and I completed it easily, with very little effort. Granted, I have been in the IT field for 10 years, but I expected to actually learn something new. I can safely say that the only thing I learned was the way DES works, and for that I paid $30k. Even worse, there were quite a few students in my class that really had no business being there. They got almost every discussion question wrong and by the last class one of them still did not understand what a Trojan Horse was. They all graduated, however, which means they had to have gotten at least a B in all classes. Basically, if you're already in the field and you want to pay $30k to have a master's very quickly, it might be worth it. If you actually want to learn something, go somewhere else. This program will not even prepare you for an entry level help desk job. Also, they are accredited, but on probation for the 2nd year. The probation expires in December. If they do not pass, they lose accreditation.
