After obtaining an online degree, I believe that you get out of it what you put in. There were people in my program who clearly did not want to get an education, but still passed the classes. If you turn something in, you will pass. This is not Harvard. But you can get a quality education if you seek it. The knowledge is available if you want it and all the support in the world is available for those who need it. I worked very hard and graduated with a degree in a very short time because I was able to double up classes.

They only hire online instructors who have little to no experience, and then wonder why their turnover rate is so high. They're always "hiring" new online faculty once every two - three months. For instance, I, literally, did the redesign for English 101 for the City Colleges of Chicago, and I train future teachers, and this school actually told me that I was not "qualified" to teach for them. What a joke.

    I really don't like to write bad reviews about anything or anyone, however, this school warrants. Wanting to pursue and further my education, I chose AIU. Like many schools the admissions department was aggressive and persistent. My experience during my undergrad was mixed. I am usually an "C" student @ best, however, I graduated from this school with an "A"...Magna Cum Laude and a hand full of honor societies. The curriculum was weak and not up to date. Although I had some good professors, others lacked a sense of care and responsibility, this includes the admin department when trying to communicate issues. I am at the tail end of two careers, so this degree means little to me and is basically worthless when applying for a real job! Vet your schools carefully, and initiate the "buyer beware" mentality. There are better schools out there!

    I have been attending AIU for the past 6 months. The program is very good. The faculty is very caring. The time commitment is very reasonable if you are willing to keep up with the work. I would highly recommend AIU to anyone that would be interested in advancing their education and career.

    I made the choice of enrolling into the Bachelor's Degree Program at American Intercontinental University and it was by far one of the best decisions I have made! I am roughly 60% completed with my degree and so far the course work is manageable with a full time job and raising a child. I will admit managing a four year degree into two and a half years seemed a little scary in the beginning. I have made it through with a 4.0 GPA, making President's list every term and was also invited to join an International Honor Society for business students.

    Normally I say that I don't really use much of what I learned in school throughout my work, but lately, I'm seeing more and more of what I'm learning at AIU in my work-life as well as my personal life. AIU has been a blessing for me and my career and I look forward to getting my Bachelor's Degree this coming December. If you're looking for an online college that makes work-life and personal-life manageable, consider AIU!

    Hello I am putting a rating of one on this college because I didn't even get my degree yet I have paid out over $14,000 and they're still trying to say I owe money even though I'm not attending anymore. Unless you are rich do not attend here because they will take advantage of you. I should have been fully paid off as of March this year and then I get some stuff on my credit report saying I owe more money all of a sudden. As you can imagine I was severely frustrated and they did not want to work with me on any of this, they said it is what I owe. They said what is owed to the school is different from grants and loans.... I'm disheartened and confused on how I owe anything else and still don't have a degree. I had to do due to inclined work hours. I will NEVER recommend this school strictly because of them being a money pit, the teachers in my opinion were great so I won't discredit them.

    I joined AIU MBA in Human Resource Management through Talentedge in June. It’s the best thing that I have done for my development to date. I was recently introduced to my mentor who is an extremely experienced HR professional. My mentor has taken a keen interest in my development and I feel so lucky to have received this opportunity to be guided by such a professional. I love how American Intercontinental University personalizes the experience for me as I wish it to be!

    I never studied online before and due to COVID19, I had to opt for an online MBA since I didn’t want to waste the downtime. Luckily I joined American Intercontinental University through the selection process by Talentedge. My experience has been very good indeed. Online learning is different from on-campus learning and I do miss the classroom setting but AIU faculty does its best to create a nice and easy online learning environment. I think where AIU shines is the self-paced platform which allows me to pace myself in my own way. Besides this, I feel that Talentedge offers a low tuition fee and still brings highly experienced professors from everywhere in the world to teach which I have not seen before. All in all, I feel happy to choose an MBA in Human Resource Management.

    Hello all, I would like to say that American Intercontinental University has been a great choice for me. I am from India and I wanted to study at a US Business School so that one day I can look for jobs in the USA. Since I am working full time as an engineer, I can only study in my evening times and during weekends. It has been quite easy for me to balance my work and studies. The curriculum of Technology Management is really good. I am constantly learning new things and also applying some of them at my current job, experience so far has been great. #AIU #Talentedge

    I was checking out schools to add some skills or certificate to my new business. This school contacted me, and when I mean Contacted me. They harassed me calling every day! I was being rushed and pushed even though I had not completed my FAFSA. I told the woman I will not name out of respect. I was unsure of what I would like to take on.

    Mind you I'm 40 years old and have attended 3 colleges before this only for certification programs. I would not advise anyone to go. She told me I would have to drive over 8 hours in order to graduate with my class. I was thinking that finding a school near me would make more sense. No matter how many times I told this woman she continued to get me to finish enrollment. Asked me to watch videos. And when I did not complete them she called again. STALKER I almost had in mind to report them. Very frustrating this was supposed to be exciting it just made me step back. I'm currently pursuing my options again 2 weeks later. Thank God I did not sign with them.
