I am an IT professional from Texas. I’ve been working with a local IT firm for about 3 years, after graduating from a community college here in Texas. It was great for me to have a job in my home town. Everything was going well for me. The only thing I wasn’t completely satisfied with in my life was my career growth.
I was nominated for the position of an Assistant Manager twice in a year but, for some reason, I couldn’t get that promotion. When I asked my managers why I wasn’t chosen for that position, they said I lacked managerial qualifications. I was upset for a while because I knew it wasn’t possible for me to go for higher education with this full-time job. Then I came across MUST University and its online graduate diploma program in Management seemed perfect for me. I immediately enrolled in MUST University and it took me less than 6 months to complete my diploma.
I wasn’t very certain if this online diploma would help but it was definitely worth a shot. The day I submitted my diploma certificate at my workplace, I was called in for a meeting. My managers appreciated my effort to uplift my career progression chart. And in about a month’s time, I was promoted to my desired position of Assistant Manager.
You should also enroll in MUST University, if you want to do away with the stagnation in your career growth and move ahead in life.

I never knew it was that easy to give a brand a new direction to my career. Form being a simple high school graduate working at a grocery store to a marketing executive at a well-reputed organization, was an interesting journey for me.
After a couple of years at my first job, I started having second thoughts about my career choice. I was certain that if I didn’t set some serious career goals for myself, I would be selling groceries for the rest of my life. When I contacted some local universities and went through their fee structure, it wasn’t hard for me to guess that I couldn’t afford a professional degree. Then somebody from my workplace told me about MUST University and the number of courses they were offering for highly affordable fees. I liked their Undergraduate Diploma program in marketing and enrolled immediately.
Not only was it inexpensive, I had the liberty to plan my coursework and schedule my assessment at my convenience. Only after 8 months of my enrollment on the program, I had a very nice job offer. The placement department of MUST University helped me land a job in my own city.
I would recommend MUST University to anyone who is unhappy with their choice of career and want to give it a new direction!
I never used to think highly about online education before. However, once I applied for a Bachelor’s degree at MUST University, I soon realized that there is no compromise on the quality of education provided. In fact, it’s far better than traditional education as you are allowed to study at your own pace.
This is the most excellent program as it offered me a most convenient self- study online program which met my needs to attain a flexible, affordable and high value education. MUST University even provides students with financial aid in the form of flexible fee payments, scholarships and credit transfers. This helped me pay for the admission fee, thus enabling to not miss out on the opportunity of a lifetime.
I am happy to receive quality education at my affordability. All the course materials were easy to comprehend and the faculty was always there to answer my queries. I managed to complete my program earlier than I expected in just less than a year. You do not have to finish that quickly but I was determined. I recommend MUST University for everyone seeking a higher education as it is worth the time, effort and knowledge.
If you ask me to define MUST in few words that would be: affordable, self-paced, and effective. I can’t think of a better way to learn. I came across MUST University when I was looking for an online university to pursue my bachelor’s in nursing. Enrolling at this University is the best thing I have ever done. The online capability that MUST University offer is simply superb. It offered me the flexibility that I needed as a full-time worker. Read the rest of this entry »

As someone with no knowledge of online classroom structure, I am able to say that MUST University program gave me everything I needed to achieve my goal of graduation. At first, I was hesitant to pursue an online bachelor’s degree because I thought it would be too technical for me to understand and study using online classrooms. I didn’t understand that the online format offered by MUST University was completely different than I thought it to be. It has adapted to the needs of working adults making it tremendously easy to use and understand. MUST University has specially designed an interactive and a personalized student’s area where I could easily study and manage my complete program. Read the rest of this entry »
After graduating from high school I didn’t go to a college. By the time I realized a higher education degree would help me progress in my career, I was a mom of one daughter -then 8 and working full time. Deciding that on campus learning would be too challenging logistically, I opted to pursue a degree online. I frantically started my search for the right online university and finally came across MUST University—a highly affordable and flexible online university offering a range of programs in diverse fields.

Hi. I am Kathy Silver. I am a student of MUST University and my major is nursing. I enrolled at the University sometime back and, although it offered many services and features, it still lacked the loan facility.
However, I was ecstatic when MUST University recently offered 100 % interest-free loan facility, which means that I can pursue my education without any financial burden. Read the rest of this entry »
The rise of online education:
In the year 2007, the second highest enrollment in a degree granting college and university campus in the U.S stood at 54,094. The enrollment rate at the first highest stood at 4.1 times that of the former. One is left bewildered wondering the reason for such a vast difference between the two, the answer is simple the former used the traditional method of imparting education, while its closest competitor did not.
Today the online education industry is seeing a 17 percent growth rate for online enrollments which far exceeds the 1.2 percent growth of the overall higher education student population in the United States. Professional qualifications such as Degrees, Diplomas, and Certificate courses could only be completed through a physical presence in the past, while completion of university credits online may have seemed a farfetched idea. Evolution of technology has brought fantasies to reality; in the case of online education the numbers are doing the rest to keep suspicions about the efficacy of the new-born concept at bay.
The statistics are in the favor of online education, but one wonders whether the online classroom is the only faucet of online learning. Is formalized online learning environment the only avenue available to students studying online, for interacting with peers and enhancing their learning? Compared to traditional education where students often enjoy face to face interaction, online education may have faced an interactivity gap albeit only in the past.
The re-emergence of personal learning networks (PLN) on the internet in the form of online groups, wikis, etc. is far more beneficial to the online learner then a physical PLN could be. Why? PLNs provide individuals with learning and access to leaders and experts around the world bringing together communities, resources and information impossible to access solely from within university walls. Social media is the gateway being used to ride the new wave of interactivity and learning freedom that PLN’s have brought to students.
Social Media and how it affects you:
Today, we live in the time of the social web; a more interactive, engaging, and democratizing space. The social aspect of today’s Internet is expressed through the popularity of social media and content creation websites. As the Internet has developed and expanded to reach more segments of the population, it has brought people together. A common misconception though remains when speaking about social networking website’s use, “waste of time” is what many of us may categorize it as. It is nonetheless an important vehicle for self expression and freedom of thought.
We believe that social media and online education are here to stay and will co-exist to aid each other. Evidence discovered by Heiberger & Harper (2008) and the Higher Education Research Institute (2007) has found that time spent on social networking websites was correlated with indices of enhanced student engagement in the real world. Additionally, Ellison, Steinfield and Lampe (2007) discovered that students who used Facebook were known to have an increased engagement when it came to their supportive social ties. The take-home message is that the online social web mimics the real space social web, if you are more engaged online; you’ll be more engaged in the real world.
Using Social Media to your advantage:
We believe in interaction on the social media landscape and to show our commitment we are offering you a chance to qualify for a free online course at MUST University and to top it off you are free to choose your preferred course from a choice of 1,300 courses offered. How? Simply log onto facebook.com/mustuniversity and ‘Like’ us to get a certified course of your liking absolutely free of cost. Who said social networking was a waste of time?
I am a Sales representative. I completed my high school and started my career with a Sales job at a Bank. My job is extremely tough and I am mostly travelling-in fact, my meal times are essentially the time spent in tube. I wanted to change my profession but it’s easier said than done. With increasing competitiveness, even entry level jobs now require at least bachelor’s degree. A colleague was pursuing his degree via an online university, so I casually inquired one day and not a million year could have I guessed that my life would change that day. He told me he is earning his degree from MUST University. They are an online university, which is internationally accredited and accepted universally. They have 24/7 support system, so I can call them at any hour to resolve any issues I might have before I enroll or while studying. Other than that, they have mobile classrooms whereby a student can study anytime that they want. Furthermore, it is self-paced, offers financial assistance and so much more. I went through the admission process with a dedicated student advisor by my side. He facilitated me in all ways possible, suggested ways I can study without upsetting my schedule, helped me a choose a major, etc. Now that I am done with my bachelor’s degree and in pursuit of masters, I can’t thank MUST and my advisor enough.
Life has been good to me. After my father died, he left his garage to me when I had just graduated from high school. Young and devout, I made it my passion, and my mother resumed her job as a school teacher, so the two of us helped each other make ends meet, until recession hit America and the garage went out of business. I got a job at a more established car repair shop as I struggled to prove myself to my boss - something I found really difficult because I was not used to working for anyone else. My boss mentioned opening another garage as his operations increased and how he wanted someone with formal education to help him run his business. I believed I had the aptitude for the job but lacked ‘formal education’. Depressed at my fate, I went home and searched online for a university I could attend while I continued to work. I found MUST and enrolled myself in the B.E. program for a bachelor’s degree in engineering. During this time my boss hired someone to help him run the second garage but he was all talk and no action. In the end, my boss had to let him go despite his credentials.
One evening, I was sitting with my boss when he was exhausted from working double jobs and I mentioned how I was about to complete my degree, he stared at me in disbelief. I shared some details of the courses I was being taught and the things I was learning – many of which didn’t even apply at work – but it was enough for him to assign me the role of an acting manager. Now I was exhausted, as I was trying to prove myself at work and complete my degree at the same time, but I managed to pass the tests, and my role was made permanent. Now I am chasing the American dream and planning to reopen the garage my father had left me with the same name, only bigger and better. What’s more, I even encouraged my mother to go for a masters degree in Education so that she can improve her job quality, and earn some much-needed computer/Internet skills.
