  • I am active duty military and was looking for that one school to provide me with every opportunity to succeed. CMU was there to assist. Not only did they provide me with an affordable education and a schedule I could handle; they provided me with a degree that was exactly what I was looking for. My graduate degree in Strategic Leadership will boost my career and set me up for success in the civilian sector when I retire. Thank you CMU. - Dec. 13th 2017

  • As a recent Navy veteran, CMU offered a convenient way for me to take advantage of my Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits while attending classes at the San Diego campus. Midway through my studies, I became forward deployed with my company, and I was able to finish my degree through CMU's online MBA program.  The university offers up-to-date curriculum with real-world case studies to help prepare any ambitious student for a successful career as a civilian. - Dec. 11th 2017

  • I found California Miramar University to be a valuable place to use my GI Bill benefits and was able to complete the hybrid MBA program while working full time. The MBA coursework is challenging but manageable. I often find much of the MBA coursework quite useful in both my professional and personal life. California Miramar University has highly qualified professors and staff members. Classes often have students from several different countries all over the world, sometimes making the classroom feel more like a United Nations conference. Excellent experience overall. - Dec. 16th 2017

  • I started my DBA program at CMU because other schools did not offer the classes that matched. It is good to know that I have a program that allows me to interact with my professors. I will recommend others to take the time to research and then chose CMU. - Dec. 15th 2017

  • My academic experience at California Miramar University has been fabulous. I studied and graduated with a Masters degree in Business Administration at CMU from 2018 to 2020. I enjoyed the solid education at CMU, the honest and genuine help from all the professors, and the team spirit among all the students. Studying at CMU is like being part of a big family where all the students, the professors, and all the CMU Staff are all focused on seeing the students achieve their academic goals. I recommend studying at CMU to all students who want to pursue a Bachelors, Masters, or PHD degree from CMU. – April 4th 2020
  • Every week, I spend at least 40 hours on the phone with patients suffering from type1 diabetes troubleshooting technical issues on their glucose monitoring devices (CGM). Today, while explaining to a parent why the speed of data reception on her child's continuous glucose monitoring device slew down dramatically, I suddenly realized that a lot of the logic I use to find solutions to those issues progressively builds on the knowledge I learn in my M.I.S classes such as telecommunication systems, Database management, computer applications, servers, and many more. My Java classes are helping me understand the different programming concepts and terminology when I communicate with the company's software developers during our weekly product development meetings. My CPT classes taught me how communication is vital to succeed at work and how to improve my organizational behavior skills. Because I was able, in a short period of time, to use that modest knowledge and therefore offer the best advice to my patients, I was selected as one of the 10 best employees of the month. I am very grateful to all of who helped me directly or indirectly to become a better student. Thank you very much! Radhouane Derouiche CMU-MSCIS Student – March 7th 2021
  • I recently was recruited away from a contract manufacturing firm where I was the Director of manufacturing, to a pharmaceutical firm where I am now the Head of manufacturing.  This new position is itself a promotion with added responsibilities which include contract negations with vendors, production schedule development; hiring, training, promoting, product cost reduction as well as transfer of technology from R&D into manufacturing.  This promotion would have not been possible had I not pursued and received my MBA from California Miramar University. - Nov. 21st 2017
  • I'm an international student from Egypt and I've been with CMU for 6 years now, first completing my bachelor's degree and now finishing my master's degree. California Miramar University made me feel like I'm home and surrounded with family. I want to thank everyone working in this school professors and staff, they are all great and they always go above and beyond to support. I would recommend this school to anybody that wants to feel like home and get great education. Ali Abdelmoniem Radwan CMU - BSBA Graduate & CMU - MSCIS Student – April 9th 2021
