Great program at a great price. The student services and support were lacking, but if you’re getting an MBA you are probably the type of person who doesn’t need a lot of guidance on classes and scheduling. If you are not a good academic writer and researcher, struggle with grammar, and generally struggle to put solid ideas into writing, you will struggle. As a working professional managing a nursing home during a pandemic, it took a lot of work to finish but finishing was definitely possible. The... Read More

I attended GCU from 2016 to 2018 for my first Masters and will graduate with my 2nd master in 2019 with a MSL. I found the coursework challenging and educational. I have found that like most things in life, you get what you put into it. The support from instructors is minimal, so I spent hours in 3rd party tutoring to keep on pace. For myself , the MBA required 10 to 30 hours of work per week on top of working and family life. I feel that I received a quality education and use most of the knowledge... Read More

After starting my education with GCU I found out after the fact that this college hires mostly adjunct professors to teach their online classes. These are people who have no experience teaching. Some times you will get a great teacher but the majority of the time it will be other full-time working professionals who are part-time adjunct professors teaching to make extra money. They are not full time faculty nor are they set up for tenure. I wish I had know what this meant prior to enrolling online... Read More

Grand Canyon University is a great option for those seeing a lot of flexibility with pursuing an MBA. The online program, while structured, makes it possible to manage a busy work and learning schedule. For graduate students, please expect to do your learning all on your own. There are no instructor led lectures, though professors do include lecture notes for some courses. A significant amount of reading and research is required for success. Each course is compartmentalized into one week study and... Read More

I just graduated in December with an MBA. A lot of students struggled primarily because the business school does NOT require the GMAT therefore many student do not have the requisite math or English skills to succeed nor did thy have any real world work experience. I had several classmates that had no business being enrolled in a graduate level business program (no pun intended lol). The most successful students have either financial (accounting, finance, etc), engineering, or healthcare background... Read More

So far this program has been great for me. The pace of the online MBA program is manageable and the course content appropriate. Group projects are a little challenging for the online classes, but can still be successful. My professors have been very responsive and take the time to provide specific feedback regarding my assignments and posts. In cannot speak for the students having trouble with financial aid and loans as I am not using those services. However, my student services councilor has been... Read More

This review is regarding the Colangelo College of Business MBA program as of 2017. I attended both the ASU and UA MBA programs, but had to transfer for different reasons. After taking a break, I decided to attend the GCU MBA program and it was the cheapest. The fact is that no MBA program in Arizona is competitive, especially the ones claiming to be (I'm talking to you ASU). The W.P. Carey MBA from ASU is currently the most expensive and the most over-rated; many of the other students in my cohort... Read More

The MBA program is excellent. After being accepted to the MBA programs at ASU, UA, and GCU I chose to go to GCU because it was cheapest and probably the best quality of the three. ASUs' W.P. Carey MBA is way overpriced (55k) for its low ranking (57th according to US News and 47th to Forbes, 2016) and UAs' Eller MBA is 52k and is ranked in the mid-sixties by several major business journals. GCUs' Collangelo MBA is accredited, costs 30k, and offers emphasis. I've seen all three programs and unless... Read More

My graduate program is an eye-opener. The knowledge gained so far is unmeasurable. The mode of instruction is superb and well cut for the program.

The overall experience with GCU was a positive one. I'd say 9 out of 10 of my teachers were all great, you get a "meh" one here or there. Only had one that I couldn't stand and was super rude. My original counselor was AWESOME but he went to work somewhere else so I spent the last 6 months of my program dealing with a new counselor who I had no relationship with at all..... it was a bummer. The courses were challenging but manageable. The final two courses of the program were super time consuming!... Read More

This school while great on the outside is far behind on quality education. Everyone is getting a cookie-cutter curriculum written program that doesn't allow for professors of knowledge to use there real-world experience. I gained hardly anything that I hadn't already learnt in my undergraduate program. Grad school (atleast at GCU) was a complete let down, I thought I was going to get real-world experience, but more times that not I was being taught by people my own age who had barely graduated from...
