What Our Students Say...

“AU is a perfect balance of rigor, reputation, and affordability. Even though the program is online, I was able to network with peers and develop relationships with professors.” — Randy Solomon, Online MBA ’20, PhD candidate ’22

“I recommend AU online because the classes are easy to fit in with your work schedule. Advisors are available to help you so you don’t feel lost. The classes are smaller so you’re not just a number—you get to know your professors.” — Annie Brink, Online BBA ’18

“The practical lessons in human resource law and leadership styles helped prepare me for a leadership position in criminal justice. I didn't feel like a number; there was a lot of one-on-one interaction with professors. I highly recommend the Anderson University Criminal Justice program.” — Sheriff Chad McBride, Master of Criminal Justice ’13
