    Hello all,

    To everyone that participates in this forum, thank you, it's because of this forum that I was able to educate myself with regards to the intricacies of DL. With me being in the military, it makes it difficult to obtain a degree at a regular campus setting. On to my point, I applied and was accepted into FIU's online MBA program: Online MBA Program - Distance Learning by Florida International University I will be staring in the fall and for anyone that might be curious about FIU, I will post my progress here in this forum. I chose FIU for several reasons:
    1: AACSB accredited.
    2. 100% Online
    3. 18 months
    4. FIU's reputation in S. Florida, and in Latin America.
    I'm originally from Miami, and will like to move back there, once I'm done with the military, and one of my goals is to work with a multinational company, therefore, allowing me to use my Spanish language skills as well as my international experience.

    Cost is a bit pricey, the program itself is $42,000. However, I will be receiving a $20,000 scholarship for being in the military, on top of that the Army will pay another $9,000 in tuition assistance, that leaves me with approx $13,000 or so, not bad IMO.

    Like I said before, I will be posting my progress here, and will be glad to answer any questions with regards to the program, again, thank you.

    How are you doing?

    Hello, I am starting the CMBA program next week. I was wondering how you are doing so far in the program and if you had any advice for me?

    If it is possible to speak with you over the phone for 10 minutes that would be great, but regardless, a response here on the forum is fine as well.

    This is what I have been scouring the internet for! I am interested in FIU's online CMBA program. How do you find that it has helped you in terms of career aspirations? In terms of difficulty, would you say an individual would be able to keep working and complete coursework while maintaining good grades? How did you like the program? Any other details you could offer would be great! Thanks so much and thank you for your service.

    Hi Jaysicka,

    I ended up dropping out of the program due to a change of heart and career change. Right around the time I started the program I began working for myself and also became a freelance writer and an MBA was not necessary. I also wanted to concentrate more on my writing thus I took time off to write and to pursuit other interests as well. I do, however, have great things to say about the program. The program was well put together and the mix of student was great. I have had a couple of friends complete their MBA's at FIU and have positive things to say as well. Having said that, what are you career goals? Where are you located? FIU is located in Miami and has great reputation in South Florida. Outside of its geographic sphere almost no one knows about FIU. FIU does not have the same brand recognition as the University of Miami, University of Florida or even Florida State. These universities are known nationwide. I hope this helps, good luck to you.
