Degree: MBA in Information Systems

Obtaining my NBA from American Military University opened new opportunities to network with nation executive leadership and learn from those who have mastered their field. Providing an outlet for me to flourish and successfully enter mid level management upon graduation.

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2017

AMU provided outstanding customer support through their academic advisors. The process to enroll and transcript review was easy and fast and the response was always quick. Upon enrolling and getting started, all the courses were easy to access and the course work was challenging. Being someone who is halfway through their career, the ability to learn and see the applications on a daily basis was outstanding. The professors were knowledgeable, flexible, and always ready to answer questions.

Degree: Homeland Security
Graduation Year: 2020

This institution is very well adapted to those who are both former military or students coming straight from high school. The instructors are very aware of the diversity that their classes contain in this matter and embrace with both sides on the best way to collaborate and the results is some very great discussions and enhanced learning experiences that even are not always obtainable in the traditional brick and mortar institutions. The aspect of continuous involvement and required interaction reinforces the need to be active and that one cannot just cruise through a course to get a grade for simply doing the bare minimum. Some still are not fond of online educational practices, however there are many advantages over that of in class settings as you can complete the course learning objectives in an environment to which you can best process and intake the educational opportunity but also make sense of the information and then attempt to apply it to real situations to which you are exposed.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2020

This institution is very well able to adapt and provides value education to both Active, and veterans of the armed forces as well as those not in the military. The professors are extremely well rounded and have the guidance and direction to allow each student to get from the course what they put in. The institution is not one that can be just done on the side. A person must focus and be willing to dedicate their time to achieving educational greatness as this is what is expected.

Degree: Electronics
Graduation Year: 2018

American Military University has been a excellent experience for me so Far. The professors are willing to help anytime you ask, they promptly respond to all your emails and calls, and grade work with a timly manner. I am currently active duty, serving in the United States Navy. This school has made it easy for me to be stationed overseas while being able to obtain my Masters. They have plenty of financial options and resources to help you be able to afford to further My higher education. I highly recommend American Military University to anyone trying to futher their education.

Degree: Project Management
Graduation Year: 2018

I'm currently enrolled and pursuing an MS in Information Technology with a major in Project management. American Military University (AMU) has been very resourceful and encouraging in helping me achieve my goal. I'm currently active duty military with rigorous working hours, but the flexibility of this school has made it possible for me to remain in school. For students currently working and thinking of how they could cope with both aspect of life (working and going to school), search no more because AMU will support you through your program.

Degree: Military Science
Graduation Year: 2017

I am an active-duty military member, working on my professional credentials (I graduate this summer). APUS/American Military University has been a lifesaver for working on my masters while managing a challenging full-time career. I have enjoyed access to a diverse set of peers, from other nationalities and other careers. The exposure to law enforcement and political science students has helped me to think outside the box on serious issues, such as the legality of drone killings. Additionally, creative methods for online learning have helped to keep me engaged. One example was a team-based project analyzing a film, which required a different level of engagement and leadership than is typical of online courses. To balance this review, I would like to say that the education that i am getting at APUS/AMU is heavily dependent on what I devote to it. The academic rigor exists, but occasionally students display less than graduate-level performance in forums and papers. This is likely due to the lack of a live interactive venue for instruction and correction, and the lack of a GRE/GMAT requirement. Overall, the school has been productive for my career, making me competitive and knowledgable. In particular, the education has provided deeper context and background to my thoughts and actions, setting me apart from others in decision making and analysis. Thank you for this opportunity!

Degree: Military Science
Graduation Year: 2017

American Military University has a plethora of great programs. I am active duty military and I was able to complete courses even with multiple deployments to the Middle East and Africa. All of the instructors are very knowledgeable and flexible with my schedule. This is a great University for Active Duty Military and any other career professionals. I would absolutely recommend this school to everyone interested in pursuing a Graduate Degree.

Degree: Military Science
Graduation Year: 2018

American Military University is great for people in the military with a full time job. It is a challenging course but accomplishable course. I work from 0600-1800 every day, have a wife and a kid and still find time to complete my degree. The course material is a little out of date but it is still relevant today. I plan to take what I have learned and apply it to a Ph.D.

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2017

American Military University renewed my faith that I could do a master's, after my alma mater failed to provide me with the support I needed. It is not easy being a military spouse who might get uprooted on short notice, but AMU understands the needs of the military and their spouses. The process to apply was so easy, the staff has been helpful and involved the whole way. Teachers are experts in their fields and my fellow students are there for all the right reasons. I'm truly grateful to be a student at a university that wants me to succeed.
