    Does anyone have experience with these programs?

    I am puzzled because, apparently, New York Institute of Technology, a well established, not-for-profit, private B & M institution has arranged with (bought from?) Cardean a turnkey online program.

    Any thoughts?

    I can only tell you that I am currently a student at Ellis and think that the online interface is great.

    My guess is that it was cheaper to purchase a turnkey solution than try and develop their own.

    My only complaint so far is the cost, it is quite expensive compared to som of the other distance programs I have researched.

    Ellis College is a joint venture of NYIT and Cardean. It has the accreditation of the former, and the resources of the latter. Pretty smart.

    And NYIT is very good name to put in your resume.

    I just wish the tuition was more affordable. If that was the case, I wouldn´t think twice about enrolling.

    I will be finishing my M.B.A. in two weeks from Ellis/NYiT. I can honestly say the coursework was great, challenging at times, and I feel that there was a great deal of learning on my part. There are also some negatives to the school which you can probably pick up if you register for a guest pass on their homepage... There are many discussion postings with students voicing their concerns. One positive thing I will say is that they actively work to correct issues that students bring up on that medium. Expensive yes, well worth it? Definitly.
