Amber University (texas): Mba
Q: Can anyone provide information with regard to this school and program? It seems that the school has a good local reputation. The program seems to be challenging. Input would be appreciated, as I'm starting to narrow my options. At this point, AU is high on my list because of both regional accreditation and affordable cost.
A: I read quite a few of the messages, but I didn't find specific comments from persons familiar with the school and the program. The comments were based primarily on opinion based on price, former affiliation with another Christian university, and lack of negative comments within this newsgroup. I haven't uncovered anything negative by running a few searches on the Internet, but I'd feel more confident in making a final decision if someone who knows about Amber's MBA could chime in. Basically, to be more specific, I'm like to know whether the courses are as challenging as they appear to be (in other words, not a piece of cake for the average person), how difficult the exams might be, how the Amber MBA is regarded in general, and the like. When I was first looking for a MBA program, I thought hard about Amber. They're cheap and regionally acreditted. However, when I actually contacted the university to get some more information and some clarifaction on things from their website, I got some pretty rude responses! Their actual program might be very good, but their admissions people are not. I know of a couple of other people who got the same treatment. Have you signed up for the Amber University MBA program? If you have, or are planning to, please share your experience of the program with the group. I have never met anyone who has actually taken classes from there via distance learning. I'm sorry that I did not respond earlier. The original message is pretty old by now and I only just saw it when I organized the threads in alphabetical order. In any event, no, I have not signed up for the Amber program. I am looking for a program to start in the Fall, but I am not in a hurry to choose one. I tend to mull things over...and over. But, of course, as soon as I select the program, assuming that it is distance ed, I will share my findings with the group. By the way, do you know anyone who has taken classes from Amber on-site?
