. I have enjoyed attending Ashford in the past and I am sure my time here earning my Master’s will be no different. I look forward in starting and completing my educational goals. Although this adventure was challenging I am and always will be up for the challenge. The only con to the program is that each instructor have their own take on how and what the APA format should be.

Pros was the convenient of doing class work at any time of the day or night. How knowledgeable the instructors were. Accessibility to technical support and instructors. Cons were the high cost of the school and not having a Doctoral program.

If you are pro corporations and live and die by the cube then yes this degree is amazing ;), but in all honesty I'm a undergrad psyc major and was drawn to the MA in Organizational Mgt as it was another side of psychology in the workforce :)

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2014

I have attended both 4-year on campus schools and online. I've been attending Ashford online since 2008. I thrive in the online environment because Ashford has such an excellent learning platform. The faculty are very supportive and are quick to respond to any questions or concern. I have recommended Ashford to many of my friends and family! The only con I have found is that there is no career placement or assistance with finding employment. They do have a career and professional development center that allows you to post your resume and search for jobs, however, they do not offer career placement. This is the only addition I would like for Ashford to make for their students. Other than this, I am 100% satisfied with my education! Thank you Ashford for providing me a platform that enabled me to make my dreams come true :)

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2014

The graduate program at this school is just ok. I feel like it did not match my first degree although I was told it would co-inside. Also, I stressed a lot over finances during this program. I feel like I should have done my research first before deciding to take my masters here. I feel like I would have been more satisfied with taking something that matched my Bachelors degree.

The Graduated program on Business Administration with specialization In Human resources is an advantage for me been online. It help me advance my studies before getting out of the military by giving me a better education and understanding of the business.
