Columbia Southern University is really great for Graduate programs, very friendly staff, and the professors are true professionals. I completed my MBA while serving as a 1SG so the work load wasn't too difficult. Also, TA covers course costs enough to complete six courses a year and books are free for Military, good luck.

Battle you the prize for best info yet.  While I did not want to focus on the dollars and cents, it is a factor.  I will be checking them in a few, while I'm in-processing here I have more free time than I've had in years.  You were smart to go ahead and knock it out while still on AD, I plan on getting as much as possible done in the year I have left, but will probably not be done.  Thanks again for the great info.

I currently attend Columbia Southern University. Like 1SG Rink said, they're very user-friendly and the work load isn't too much to bear. They've even worked with me in the past in getting extensions to course deadlines if I had something come up that was going to make it difficult to meet a suspense for them.

1SG,
It really will be driven by what you decide you want/need your degree to be in. That said, UMUC has a wide variety of Master's degrees, as well as an established path for dual Masters of whatever/MBA.

If you JUST want the degree, and don't care what, as a History type, looking into Norwich's Masters in Mil History might be a lot of fun.

1SG,

 

You can not go wrong with a Masters in Project Management or a Masters in Business Administration (Insert focus here). The MBA lists a number of different concentrations to tailor to what you may want to do in post Army life. Another good thing about most MBAs is that the original course line is exactly the same and you don't have to decide until after the 6 basic courses on where you should direct your concentration. Like a lot of those who have commented below, I too am a student of Columbia Southern University. I completed my Bachelors with them and have opted to stick with them for my Masters. Very easy to work with, option for extensions if work ends up interfering with completion date, and a dedicated staff to ensure your success. 

 

Whatever you chose, good luck. I have noticed a drastically different course load across the handful of classes I have taken on the graduate level.
