Degree: Information Technology

I would think that most reputable companies would use the products they produce. Not the case with WGU. I received both a Bachelor's and Master's degree from WGU. Really my goals were simple. I wanted to be a program mentor and help other students along the way. I have applied to over 5 mentor and instructor positions and got one face to face interview. Most of the time I got a rejection letter within 1 minute of applying. I've come to the realization that WGU is not the pot at the end of the rainbow... Read More

Withdrawal is a pain in the A to say. I would never recommend a school that you can not withdraw due to circumstances. Good luck. Classes were hard and good, but a pain to withdraw. You have to constantly talk with the "mentor" for what ever reason. The proctored test and having to pass certification within the timeframe is pointless unless you have had prior knowledge in that cert. I would not recommend going this way as well. Im still trying to withdraw and they will not let me after I already... Read More

I earned my MBA/ITM iat WGU in 2015. I found their education model to be exceptional. As a self paced program, you must be driven and dedicated. It is very cost effective, and worth every penny. Within in one year of earning my degree, I was able to land a new job, with a $40k increase in salary.

I completed my MBA in IT Management at WGU in 18 months. I had previously gotten my BBA in MIS at Michigan. I found the MBA program at WGU to be exceptional. Sure, it was difficult and a lot of work, but that is what you expect in a masters program. As I was already working in senior management, all my work was done at night and on weekends. Without fail, during each course, I learned a major thing that I was able to put to immediate use as an IT executive. It was really hard to believe. I found... Read More

Evaluators do not have a background in what they are evaluating. They have routinely rejected submissions for not including information that wasn’t in the requirements. They add their own interpretation to the instructions and will fail your assessment until it complies with their new requirements. The course mentors (professor like figures) will not evaluate your work and have no power to address mistakes by the evaluators. It’s discouraging to focus on expanding your technical knowledge in a graduate... Read More

I completed my BS and MS degrees at WGU while working full time. What I discovered was that students can do just enough to pass or actually do all the recommended work and learn much more. Currently, I am in the process of enrolling in a Doctoral Degree Program, D.B.A at a regionally accredited school and their business programs in the School of Business and Technology Management have received programmatic accreditation from the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP.
