"California Miramar University offers a quality education, with a great tuition rate. CMU specializes in Business Management and Leadership Degree's, which allows the staff, faculty and students to really focus on these "in demand" fields in the workplace. With courses like Conflict Resolution, Entrepreneurship, Negotiation, Change Management, and several leadership courses; I feel as though I'm ready to handle just about anything that comes my way in the workforce. Sure, I could study at Harvard, Yale, Purdue,or SDSU, and walk away with a mountain of debt...but why would I? CMU offers a quality education at an affordable price, was ranked in the top ten business schools by the San Diego Business Journal and sure gets my vote!"

1) Once you start with this school you must complete with them. You do have the option of transferring out but none of their credits will count. 2) The university is not even qualified to give out half of the grants the other schools are (no Cal Grants). You will sign documents that state that once you are enrolled in courses, you should receive your living expenses. However, you will only receive your money when the university "feels" that you are a safe candidate and will not harm their retention rate. They do not trust their students. By the way, work study is not available. 3) If you look up this university on Wikipedia you will learn that it is the same school as Pacific Western. Pacific Western is notorious for giving away diplomas to students who never found a job. The staff and management is the same people. Specifically the president of the University is the same person. He still receives letters from students of the past. They question why he promised that their degrees will be accredited and have lied to them. 4) They have one classroom in their entire "campus" which the staff also uses as a conference room and a lunchroom. Because of their low number of students, there are only very few courses that are available at a time so you are stuck with what is available.

I heard a lot about the top online MBA programs in the San Diego area, and being from Oceanside I knew I had to choose one of the MBA programs in order to cut down on commute time because the worst thing about Southern California is the traffic. I opted for an online MBA and am SO happy I did. Right after graduating I had five, yes 5 job offers at prominent companies in San Diego. My career has exploded and currently hold a top executive position at a Fortune 500 company (which will remain nameless). California Miramar University has played an integral role in my development and I cannot express in words how much I appreciate my professors, the CalMU staff and all of my classmates for helping me along the educational journey. What an amazing experience with amazing results! I highly recommend California Miramar University for everything MBA related

I graduated with an MBA degree from California Miramar University 2 years ago and to be honest, I was also pretty weary of online MBA programs. However after I dug deeper and did some more research, I found out that, if both accredited and reputed, online MBA programs are seen in the same light by employers as tradtional on-campus programs. But going for an online MBA went so much farther. I was able to study at my own pace, the tuition was a LOT more affordable, and my professors were absolutely amazing. My degree at CalMU has played an integral role in both my development and my career and I know that I would not be where I am today career wise without Califonria Miramar University.

Amazing school that knows how to put education in the hands of the students. I was able to keep my schedule and study for my online MBA degree at my own pace, which compelled me to enroll in the program in the first place. Highly recommend looking into California Miramar University for online MBA and online management degrees

I graduated from California Miramar University last year through one of their online MBA programs and have to say that it was a very rewarding experience. The faculty is first class, seemingly knowing everything there is to know about their specialties but not rubbing it in. They were very encouraging, especially when it came to asking questions, either from at home (online MBA program) or in class (hybrid MBA program). Their patience and willingness to go off topic so that everyone could understand the material being presented really speaks volumes of CMU's ethos. Although I completed a distance MBA degree, I met a lot of great people from all around the globe and have formed some really great connections (perfect for international business). CMU is definitely a smaller school but I know that will change - people are starting to catch on to what is one of the top online MBA programs in the nation.
