Is it a good idea to pursue an online degree at the Grand Canyon University? Is it a respected university?

by on June 27, 2018
This is a tricky question. Respected by whom?
Grand Canyon is growing, so it appears to be respected by students. Living in Phoenix, I know many teachers and nurses that are graduates of the campus programs.
The president at Arizona State is not fond of them, which may mean he respects the competition.


They do not have a bad reputation (deserved or not) that many online schools have.
My standard advice is to attend a school with a ground campus because someone who is bothered by online schools won’t know. They pass that test. (See Rick’s comment as an example of what I am talking about.)
The people I know who teach there are pretty happy with it.
The US News Rankings are largely based on reputation of the school among other academics and things like admissions standards. I would not (and do not) put much weight in those.
Beyond schools with winning athletics programs, most schools have a regional reputation. People outside of Phoenix probably have not heard of Grand Canyon, but they probably have not heard of many other colleges either. Unless you are going to a top school(and they generally do not offer online programs), the key is to get a degree from a regionally accredited school.
Accreditation doesn’t necessarily mean respect. University of Phoenix is accredited and carries some stigma, and in my opinion, Grand Canyon has the same.
The issue I have is that everybody knows that these are new, unproven schools. There’s a reputation of money seeking, accepting anybody, pushing people through, not helping struggling students, and generally being a last resort.

My suggestion for online programs is to find a well-established school that’s starting to offer online programs. Take University of North Dakota, for example. Established for 130 years, good enough students/graduates.
The difference is what it says on your resume. GCU is met with uncertainty - Someone went through a new, unproven, online program and learned who knows what. UND on the other hand, shows someone got a normal Bachelors degree at a run of the mill, good quality state school. This is just as good as any other school (Oregon State, Washington State, Indiana State, etc.) and we’ll lump them into that group that has a good, solid degree, but of course below MIT and Stanford.

Is it a good idea to pursue an online degree at the Grand Canyon University? Is it a respected university?

by on June 27, 2018
The university is accredited with the HLC (Higher Learning Commission) which is a regional accrediting body. In addition, all other programs that need accreditation have them. The campus is growing by leaps and bounds and has 19,000 students attending the ground campus and 90,000 total with online attendance. They cannot build fast enough. Some say the campus is 100 acres but the school owns more than 400 acres. The academics are rigorous. Most people who attend, I have found enjoy the programs.


The reviews give the school 4 stars on Niche as well out of 7981 reviews by university students. The overall grade for the university is B+ on Niche. I know several people attending and they really like the school. My wife and two daughters attend and I attend the doctoral program and am in the dissertation process. We are all in the online program. I can attest to the rigor and expectations of the school that they demand academic scholarship. Another friend of mine attends the online program and my twin brother just earned his MPA there online and they both like the school. If online degrees are so frowned upon, I wonder why some of the more prestigious universities are offering more online programs such as Columbia, Johns Hopkins, Northwestern, Duke, Penn State, Rutgers, and Purdue who is in the process of buying Kaplan University.

The graduates of the university have had good things to say about the school. I have been to the campus twice for residencies and the campus is big, modern, and beautiful. Instructors there are also on the cutting edge of the things shaping the economy today. One instance would be evening courses taught by professors on the development and use of blockchain technology for business. There are also communications the university put out showcasing the various advances in the school. There is a lot of community involvement and revitalization projects taking place through student volunteerism. I would say that it is a respected school.
If you decide to attend, you will be getting a solid education from a regionally accredited university that has had notable alumni, and PhD, EdD, DBA and etc. professors who are professional in my opinion. The education will be what you put into it. They are also constantly monitoring courses and designing them to meet today’s standards. That is my $.02. I hope it helps.

What are some tips and hacks for incoming freshmen at Franklin University?

by on June 27, 2018
Hehe. Not really hacks but tips include working hard, being nice, and respecting that people really are there to learn and do well at that school. Biggest lesson to learn is time management. Budget your time for parking, getting to class, books, studying, and have everything with you ready to go.


There are many great resources to take advantage of in the library including getting familiar with all the research databases and Safari tech books is pretty awesome.
Ask for help! when you need it. Never be shy asking questions, that is what you are there for. Take advantage of seminars or help including the tutoring. If you are taking computer science classes, they can get difficult so use the tutoring lab.

Parking is free so get a pass and get there early to secure a spot in time for class. Get used to the layout of campus prior to your class so that you won’t be late.
The student lounges are nice, like the one in the tutoring lab with a full kitchen and cable TV is nice to chill at on occasion.
Buy your books on Amazon or get them ahead of time used to save $$$.

What are the best universities that offer online bachelor degree?

by on June 27, 2018
A degree in marketing serves really well for people looking to set foot in the financial world. This degree will prepare for you organizational management and also help you in understanding the core concepts related to marketing such as consumer behaviour.


When searching for a good online bachelor’s degree in marketing there are a few things that you should keep in mind:
  • Opt for courses that are well-rounded and will later help you in deciding on your specialization.
  • Make sure that the university offering the online degree in marketing is an accredited one and not a hoax set-up that will drain of your finances.
  • Finally, if you are going to take up a job along with the course, make sure that you put enough hard work into the process of learning.
California Baptist University Online and Professional Studies (CBU Online) is one such university. In fact, CBU Online ranked 23rd in the US in a survey conducted by US News & World Report for best online bachelor’s programs 2015.

As a general rule, the best universities that offer online bachelor’s degrees are the same universities that have traditional brick-and-mortar programs. Many traditional universities offer online degrees. Some of these include:
  • Ohio State University
  • Temple University
  • Arizona State University
  • Utah State University
  • Oregon State University
  • Pennsylvania State University
  • University of North Carolina
  • Colorado State University
  • University of Oklahoma
  • University of Florida
When you earn an online degree from an accredited university that offers traditional degrees, you usually earn the exact same degree that a traditional student would get.

Why should I study an MBA abroad?

by on June 25, 2018
The MNCs based in India, find an MBA from International Universities better also because of the Multinational Faculty exposure given to the student. Another factor that might win you a great job is the worldwide recognition. A UK/USA MBA sounds better than an Indian MBA and this reflects well on your resume. An international degree definitely gives you the weightage over an MBA from an average institute from India.


Another factor favoring your abroad MBA is the international exposure that you receive while you are in abroad. None of the MBA institutes in India offer such exposure, let alone even the top colleges.
There is definitely a difference in the quality of education offered between India’s premier educational institutions and international institutions of repute. With the various funding and scholarship opportunities available; it is definitely a better option to go abroad for higher studies.
There are so many advantages if you pursue your MBA degree from abroad. You will get a worldwide knowledge of cultures and values.
There are some sorts of benefits you will get if you study MBA abroad.
  1. You will emerge from other occupation applicants with the abilities that must be increased through universal experience, for example, solid diverse correspondences and nature with global benchmarks, laws, and controls. Furthermore, on the off chance that you think about in a nation with a rising economy, you will have the capacity to react rapidly to an advancing business sector or industry.
  2. Your introduction to another culture will enable you to pick up an expansive and advanced perspective and expand your considerations and qualities. Therefore, it'll be less demanding for you to frame organizations and work adequately to handle worldwide or multinational difficulties.
  3. You can create scholarly interests and enhance your remote dialect and English relational abilities. You can even increase global entry level position or volunteer understanding while at the same time examining in a MBA school.
  4. you will figure out how to get your work done by others and pick up a superior comprehension of various authority and business styles. On the off chance that you oversee others, you'll increase significant experience working with a various group.


There are so many of advantages if you prefer abroad for pursuing your MBA. Here are some top business schools for pursuing MBA. You can choose any of them according to your score in entrance exam.

Is it worth studying an MBA for an Indian in the USA? Can one find a job after an MBA from an average university?

by on June 25, 2018
For anyone who is from a middle class family(like myself) and does not have a lot of disposable income, I would strongly recommend against going for an MBA in United States.
My decision to go to United States was solely based on the frustration regarding the quota system to get into the IIMs. In hindsight, I should have just written CAT one more time and I could have cracked into a good school in India.


As someone has already pointed out in a previous posts, there are a lot of factors which stack the cards against getting a job and eventually having a peaceful life.
  1. School Rankings/On Campus Recruitment: Unless you are getting an MBA from one of the top 10–15 MBA universities (check Forbes List), very few recruiters would visit the campus. I joined UC Davis Graduate School of Management(ranked ~35–40) in 2014 and over a period of 2 years, I hardly saw 3–4 companies that actually came to the campus and hired someone from our class.
  2. Cost: People highly miscalculate the cost of living and other fringe expenses related to living in US. It always tend to be more expensive than you initially planned. There a lot of random fees that come up and conferences that your university will ask you to attend which you would not have accounted for. So if you are a student like me who was going to United States thinking your savings are going to be enough, you are in for a surprise
  3. Internships: I had straight As in all the classes that I took and I was one of the smarter kids in my class but securing an internship as an international student is a herculean task. As an international student, you tend to get picked last even though you ace every interview/exams/test. I had applied to approximately 1500 positions to get about 30 interviews. People might say my resume could have sucked but “Career Development Team” at UC Davis had carefully vetted my resume multiple times. I got an internship a month into Summer Quarter in June 2015. Atleast 3 of my international classmates either didn’t get an internship or decided not to look for internships because of bad job market.
  4. Sponsorship: I have been rejected for a position countless times only due to the fact that I need sponsorship. US Employers often tend to only hire American graduates for management positions. Even larger companies like Intel, HP, Cisco, Visa do not sponsor H1B visas for MBA candidates. It is difficult for the companies to justify hiring an international employee when they can find a local candidate easily to fill the role. To avoid this complexity and legal issues, companies completely avoid hiring international students
  5. Job Search: If Internship was a pain, the job search post graduation is even worse. I would have easily applied to over 2000 job positions to finally secure my dream job at Boomtown where I currently work. Career Development Teams pretend to help you but they give up as well. Since majority of the class already has offers by the time you graduate, they don’t care about a few people left. As long as the school’s numbers are 90%+ the CD Team thinks they did a good job.
  6. H1 B: Even after you do all the hard work and finally secure a job at a company who is ready to sponsor your H1B visa, your fate is decided by the H1B Visa lottery. For MBAs there is only one chance to apply for the H1B as compared to graduates from MS programs who fall under STEM that get 3 chances. Out of 5 Indian Students in my batch, 1 didn’t get a job, 2 didn’t get picked in H1B lottery and had to return to India and the remaining 2 of us got an RFE on our H1B.
  7. RFE (Request for Evidence): Make sure you hire the lawyer who submits the documents on time. I got my RFE on 23rd August 2017 and my lawyer didnt submit my documents till 7th November which was a week before the due date. Even after constant reminders and making all documents available 2 months in advance, things may go south if your lawyer just completely sucks.
  8. Visa Interview: My RFE got cleared on November 19th 2017 and I flew back to India to get my H1B visa stamped. Today was my Visa Interview and I received a white slip which will take anytime from about 1 week - 2 months to get cleared. In the new administration RFE and White Slips are handed off like candies adding to the frustration of the already complicated process.


Over the last 3 years, I have lost a lot of brain cells thinking if I made the right decision to go to US. Even after doing everything right you might just waste a bunch of money in fees and not make it through simply because you were unlucky.
I would urge everyone who are considering not just MBA but any other programs in US to research every aspect before you take than huge loan to pay for your fees. Anyone who is telling you otherwise, has either graduated before 2013 when pretty much everyone who applied for an H1B visa got one or has a bank balance that doesn’t get affected by fees.
India is currently developing pretty fast and I am sure there are better opportunities available right here rather than wasting a few years of your life, sleep, hair, health and peace of mind.

Is Shiv Nadar B.Tech computer science better than Amity or IP University?

by on June 25, 2018
I am a student of engineering in Shiv Nadar University, and due to my experience I can give you a brief idea about it’s CS engineering program.
SNU has very mediocre fees depends on the band of scholarship you have got through SNU-SAT which is A, B or C
A - 5 lacs
B - 7 lacs
C - 9 lacs


The above fees is of 4 years and includes hostel, academics mess and laundary charges. SNU is a residential university and its necessary for every student to stay in the campus hostel.
The faculty for CS program is average although some professors have more than 10–15 years of teaching experience in IITs. The labs are descent and there is IOT and Big Data Analytics lab setup and used by DELL. The ACM society of SNU is very active and conduct workshops on web designing , python programming language etc.
The disadvantage of the university is its location but gradually the UP roads are getting improved keeping fingers crossed : ) .
It’s more or less same, there is nothing which can make one rank higher than others, though Amity & SNU have better infrastructure but they charge a hefty fee for their upgraded infrastructure.
What is more important is the profile of the admitted students. Top colleges in IP, the admission process is bit competitive. Amity for mass intake aggressively market to attract students and only 20–30 percent students are fit for engineering and the same is reflected in their placements where most of the placements are in IT services companies and the numbers are reducing each year. Also, their fee is quite high as compared to Top IP university colleges. Students from top 2–3 IP university colleges can have more or less same or even better career prospects by spending 4–5 lakh as compared to 18–20 lakh spend by someone in Amity.

SNU has low intake but they also have admission problems because of their location, fee and inability to attract students with decent JEE scores. They talk about so many aspects like faculty from Global universities, various clubs and labs for robotics, AI, Big data,research but there also 70 percent placements are in same IT services companies. The talk about research & hard core technologies are not for everyone, they require deep aptitude & competence for engineering learning and SNU could not attract that class of students. Here also fee is very high and same career prospects as in Top 3–4 IP colleges. It’s more to brag but low in value for a student whose 12th percentage is high but mediocre to average score in JEE.
Hiring is done from these colleges based on a student’s aptitude & reasoning skills far more than core engineering knowledge.

My mom wants me to take and study for a sociology CLEP test. How do I know if I will even need to take a sociology course in college (I’m thinking about engineering)?

by on June 25, 2018
I assume you plan to get a BS degree at a US university, probably in an ABET-accredited engineering program.


If you attend a state university, it will have “general education” requirements no matter what your major is. BS degrees require more hours of lab sciences; BA degrees require more humanities and/or social sciences, perhaps foreign language proficiency. The math requirements may differ as well: calculus as opposed to statistics.
You won’t need to take a sociology class in college unless you are a sociology major. You will need to take a psychology/sociology/anthropology/other social science class.
The sociology CLEP exam is considered one of the easiest. You can accrue 3 hours of college credit by taking a 90-minute test. Credit cost is about $30 per credit. It won’t affect your GPA.
Contrast that to a semester-long class at about $200 per credit, more with textbook costs and fees. You may well have to do group projects, oral presentations, research papers, midterm and final exams. Plus, if your strong point is in math/science, not English/humanities, your GPA may take a hit and you have to spent a lot of your precious study time preparing for classwork that’s not in your major.
Any credits you accrue before college matriculation will help you graduate in less time, or will free up your schedule to concentrate on your GPA, your networking, your leadership, your co-op/internship/other revenue-generating activities. CLEP tests save you money and time.

The CLEP test can show colleges that you have strengths in areas other than math/science, making you a more well-rounded candidate.
If you bomb the CLEP, you don’t show the score to colleges. You can take it again with no negative effect.
Engineers have to work with people. Taking a sociology or psych or communications class helps you work better with people. It will help your career.
Here’s a real-life example: I took two day’s worth of CLEP exams. I left with 64 hours’ credit, including 14 hours for one exam alone. With two days’ work, I left with junior standing.

So I want to take law but which A level subject should I take?

by on June 25, 2018
I use to be a student advisor at a University in the US. We were told to advise undergrads to major in English or Political Science for their B.S.
That was about 25 years ago…


I would think it is similar still, in that Law school usually requires a lot of writing and many lawyers due go in to politics (at least in the US, just look at our Congress….or HRC, Bernie…
If you plan on combining Law with an MD(work for Pharma) or Engineering(Patent Attorney) or other field/area, to become a highly specialized lawyer maybe you would want to double major
Traditional A level subjects - and not A level Law (universities like to teach it themselves from scratch, and not to have to un-teach anything first). English(Lang or Lit, doesn't matter) is good, and so is History; Maths or a science or language (modern is fine, ancient would be wonderful), any of these are also guaranteed to go down well. 
Basically they want to see the kind of old-fashioned student who would have got into a decent university at any time, and will have the kind of academic background to allow him or her to be sure of coping with both a Law degree and the legal profession.

Three good academic subjects, particularly ones that teach good reading, writing, and thinking skills. For example, I’m applying for law at uni this year, and I did history, geography, and law A-levels. I’d also recommend doing the Extended Project Qualification (if your school does it) - it’ll teach you a lot of useful academic skills, like how to manage time, do proper research and reference properly (you’d be surprised how many people struggle with this).
Contrary to what some believe, I don’t think many unis particularly care whether or not you’ve done A-level law. None of the ones with which I’ve enquired (about ten total, including Cambridge) care either way - they see it as neither an advantage nor a disadvantage.

What could I do with an IT degree?

by on June 04, 2018
With an IT degree, you can work in a range of jobs. Anything from help desk or technical support for entry-level jobs, network and systems engineering, or management. While you earn the degree, you'll learn how to operate, repair, manage, and improve computer systems and networks.
What are your goals for a degree? What has led you to possibly pursuing an IT degree? Are you driven by a desire to work with computers, earn a good living, achieve work-life balance, or some other factor? In five years, I've been an intern, a computer technician, tech support administrator, systems administrator, and IT director. The range of possibilities that are open to you are expansive.

Perhaps even more importantly, the job that you want after earning a degree in IT may not even exist yet. IT is constantly changing, be prepared to continue learning new things long after you finish your degree: it's one of the things I enjoy most about IT.
I’ll be talking about what you can expect from an IT degree based from curriculum guidelines proposed by the international organization, the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM): https://www.acm.org/education/cu...
Aside from the typical fundamentals of developing systems, managing information and data communications and learning about computer architecture, algorithms and operating systems, graduates of an IT degree program are expected to be capable of administrating and maintaining an organization’s technological infrastructure. This entails managing the network in which organization runs on and the database which the organization gives and receives information from. An IT graduate should also be able to setup an infrastructure from scratch whenever the need arises.
Another important competency expected of an IT graduate is the ability to integrate systems into infrastructures in order to improve certain workflow processes within the organization. Planning of system implementation and how it will replace the current system or method of doing a certain procedure will be taken into consideration, alongside system requirements and training and technical support needed for end users.

An IT degree should also ideally teach you to specialize in the development of systems in at least the web, desktop and mobile platforms as these tend to interconnect and exchange data in an increasing frequency that organizations can take advantage of in their workplace. Special consideration to the nature of the platform on which the system is being built must be extensive as well as the resulting system’s ability to share its data whether to other systems or platforms.

Is it a good idea to pursue an online degree at the Grand Canyon University? Is it a respected university?

California Baptist University Online and Professional Studies (CBU Online) is one such university. In fact, CBU Online ranked 23rd in the US in a survey conducted by US News & World Report for best online bachelor’s programs 2015.
Your best bet by far is to stay in the Cal State system. It is easy to research the various campuses and programs, maybe an hour or two worth of work. Transferring from Northridge to DH or another campus should be fairly straightforward. When you transfer outside of the California system, you run the risks of (a) not having all your courses transfer and (b) having to complete more than a year at the new school.

I assume, by the way, that you have already checked and Northridge does not have the program you want online.
Plan B, look at other public systems in the same region as California. Arizona State U. and Governors Western U. come immediately to mind. Both have well respected online programs.
“Best” is pretty subjective, but after combining the average rankings from several trusted lists of the best online universities in the U.S., Oregon State University is clearly the most highly rated online college.
They have a good selection of degree programs, the same faculty teaches the classes, and they work with interactive developers and multimedia designers to create compelling online courses.
Here are some other schools to consider from the list:
Most affordable:
University of Central Florida’s tuition is about $12,000 for your whole degree program. (They’re #9 on our list.)
Best graduation rate:
At the University of Florida, 87% of students graduate within six years. (They’re #8 on our list.)
Most online degree options:
Arizona State University (#2) and Liberty University (#23) both offer more than 100 online degree programs.
Best job placement rate:
Fort Hays State University (#4) has a 95% job placement rate.

What is the best online university for Bachelor's?

by on June 04, 2018
I started my business in this space based on the troubles i faced doing distance education. Here are my findings.
I would limit my discussions to the Employed person who is seeking a bachelors.
The best online degree is the one which is highly suitable for an employed person should have


  1. Access to live classroom through online medium : The Student should be able to access live sessions or download these lectures at his leisure. The employed person cannot study on his own through books.
  2. Focus on learning and application instead of theory : The courseware should be designed to help him apply the knowledge he has gained.
  3. Accredition : The degree should be recognised by the governing body.
  4. Specialisation : There should be scope to specialise in the subject of his interest. Online degrees have high variety of courses catering to new age businesses. Traditionally college cannot quickly adapt to these since they have legacy issues.
Contact Time Savers Group, Abid- 7887 4499 42 for complete consultation on Degrees from UGC, AICTE and DEC recognised degrees from Indian Universities.

I normally ignore questions that could have been answered by a simple Google search. However, since the answer is my alma mater, I’ll make an exception.

Bonus answer:
What online university is the cheapest?
I’m not 100% sure, but….
Oregon State University was charging $200/credit hour and Western Governors University was charging $3000/semester—the last time I checked.

The university is accredited with the HLC (Higher Learning Commission) which is a regional accrediting body. In addition, all other programs that need accreditation have them. The campus is growing by leaps and bounds and has 19,000 students attending the ground campus and 90,000 total with online attendance. They cannot build fast enough. Some say the campus is 100 acres but the school owns more than 400 acres. The academics are rigorous. Most people who attend, I have found enjoy the programs.


The reviews give the school 4 stars on Niche as well out of 7981 reviews by university students. The overall grade for the university is B+ on Niche. I know several people attending and they really like the school. My wife and two daughters attend and I attend the doctoral program and am in the dissertation process. We are all in the online program. I can attest to the rigor and expectations of the school that they demand academic scholarship. Another friend of mine attends the online program and my twin brother just earned his MPA there online and they both like the school. If online degrees are so frowned upon, I wonder why some of the more prestigious universities are offering more online programs such as Columbia, Johns Hopkins, Northwestern, Duke, Penn State, Rutgers, and Purdue who is in the process of buying Kaplan University.
The graduates of the university have had good things to say about the school. I have been to the campus twice for residencies and the campus is big, modern, and beautiful. Instructors there are also on the cutting edge of the things shaping the economy today. One instance would be evening courses taught by professors on the development and use of blockchain technology for business. There are also communications the university put out showcasing the various advances in the school. There is a lot of community involvement and revitalization projects taking place through student volunteerism. I would say that it is a respected school.

If you decide to attend, you will be getting a solid education from a regionally accredited university that has had notable alumni, and PhD, EdD, DBA and etc. professors who are professional in my opinion. The education will be what you put into it. They are also constantly monitoring courses and designing them to meet today’s standards. That is my $.02. I hope it helps.
