Degree: Business Administration

I’m 25% done earning my bachelors degree in Business Management and I’m happy with the school so far. You have to remember that this is an online school with an independent learning model, meaning you basically teach yourself. They give you all the resources you need to be successful but it is 100% your responsibility to use them effectively. I have weekly phone calls with my academic advisor who helps keep me on track and lets me know how I’m doing. It is true that trying to get an appointment with... Read More

First off, I would like to start by saying that many reviews contain false or dramatized information created by students who could not handle the independent, flexible type of education WGU offers. Most of these people should have considered their own schedule, intelligence, and desires before seeking out an online, flexible university. Secondly, I would like to say that I highly recommend WGU to anyone who is looking to advance their education and is willing to put the time and effort into doing... Read More

I am currently enrolled in WGU in my 2nd term. I am a working professional as a Manager in Healthcare. I have not had a good experience with this school, and I would never recommend it. The classes have simply too much information. There are modules within units, and lessons within modules. It is impossible to learn all the information grossly overdone in each unit. The assessments often do not align with the main points and periodic quizzes. I now feel like I am suck because the pass/ fail grading... Read More

I began WGU in 2017 after withdrawing from a nursing program at a university in IL. I felt stuck at that point in my life and knew that I needed to go back to school in order to make a living/comfortable wages in the competitive Seattle metro area. I originally began with Business Healthcare Admin, after completing quite a few courses, I wanted to broaden my scope and settled on Business Management. The transition was smooth, my course mentor was able to instruct me with the steps that I needed to... Read More

Modern approach to education that is truly flexible in design and relevant to today's working world. This is what I expect college should be, or will become over the next 20 years. Flexible, independent learning based and rigorous. Maybe less people would coast through a degree if all colleges were setup this way.

Learn the history of this non-profit university founded by state governors. The WGU Business degrees are both regionally and ACBSP accredited, the course of study is rigorous, and the core exams that comprise the degree can be more difficult than at a traditional college. The mentors are helpful, and most of the course instructors are only an email or call away. Of course there are a few who should not be there, but you can say that about any school. In my opinion, most of the people who complain... Read More

It is really easy to be admitted to WGU. However, the financial aid department is ridiculous. They waste youre time and ask for paperwork other schools dont. They have no idea what the actual FASA requirements are, thus they make their rules more strict to counter their ignorance. Seems like most financial aid advisors dont have a clue! Moreover, it seems they seek to deny or delay financial aid for no apparent reason. This was my experience as well as my wifes. When my wife complained about this... Read More

WGU gets it! It was designed for working adults who are serious about obtaining a college degree. The program is set up so that you can focus on learning and advancing through the courses. Everyone is assigned a mentor to assist throughout your program. The ease of having one person who can answer questions and help you through any problems saves a lot of frustration. The courses are well structured and you have numerous tools available to best suit your learning needs. They have text books, labs,... Read More

Do not, under any circumstances, change your major when going to this school. I started out as an Elementary Education major and spent four semesters working towards it. During the middle of the fourth year, I started to like working in a bank and decided to switch my major from Education to Business. This is where my mistake started. I work through the first year, no problem. This current year is when I am told that I can no longer receive financial aid due to me reaching their maximum time limit... Read More

First of all, I did not graduate from WGU. I began their program to earn a Bachelor's in Business Administration but ended up dropping out after one successful term. I was very excited and motivated to finish a BA degree (I have an AA in General Studies, almost all of my credits transferred) at my own pace-- which was NOT an aggressive one. My employer reimburses employees up to a certain dollar amount a year for educational purposes. Meaning I would pay WGU's fees up front and be reimbursed 100%... Read More

WGU is a great school so long as you are a self-starter, motivated and can learn without an instructor spelling out every topic for you. You are required to have weekly meetings with a course mentor (academic advisor) but these normally take 10-20 minutes and are at the same set time every week. Each course you take has mentors that are specific to that course that will assist you if you need it. The school has countless webinars and cohorts to assist you through each course. Some of these are live... Read More

As a working professional, this course of study fit well into my work/life schedule. The course material is broad and, like anything, you will get out of it whatever you put into it. That being said, the courses are well structured and offer a good deal of insight into business. Though I had a wealth of business experience prior to participating in this degree program, this program offered knowledge beyond what I experienced as a working professional. I love this school and highly recommend the degree... Read More

Awesome. Learn way more than at a traditional university school. I have been to both. Learning approach is a lot more focused on what I will carry into my professional career. Flexible and affordable. Thankful to have come across this college. Will continue to go for my masters here.

This is a great school for mature people that have good communication and computer skills. The competency-based model saved me countless hours of classroom time. If you are the type of person that doesn't require someone to force you to do your work, and you want to learn content vs. just getting a diploma, this is a great school for you. I have already applied much of the content I learned to real-world situations.

Horrible school. Rude staff. IT idiots. Computer systems never work. Save yourself the time and money and stick with a regular school. The admissions is a joke, with no follow up and nothing but excuses. You would think with all the competition they would care more.
