John M.

Program: MBA -
Logistics and Supply Chain Management

Year: 2009

I began working for Lockheed Martin as an electronics assembler. I always wanted to go back to school, but I had started a family and believed it would be very difficult to work full time, raise my family, and attend school all at the same time. I earned my Associate of Science degree in 2001, my Bachelor of Science degree in 2007 and then my MBA from CTU in 2009. After 25 years, I am still with Lockheed Martin, although now I am a staff level logistics engineer. Currently, one of my major goals is to encourage my four children, who are all in college, to complete their studies and earn an advanced degree.*

Program: MSM - Business Management

Year: 2008

I served for 11 years in the Navy as a ship's navigator. In the service you're given a path as to what your career field is going to be. But after leaving the service that roadmap was not there. I felt like a lack of knowledge and wanted to do more and I wanted to do it better. I thought going the CTU route would be the best because you had access to go to school anytime you wanted or anytime you could. I earned both my bachelors and my masters at CTU. It opened up a lot of doors for me. So now at this point in my life I'm an independent consultant in project management. Fortunately for me, my education at CTU allowed me to rebuild my roadmap and continue bringing forth great things within my career and my personal life.*

Maurice D.

Program: Doctor of Computer Science - Enterprise Information Systems

Year: 2009

Since completing my doctoral education I have been able to secure a tenured track faculty position at a state university. The doctoral program helped build a solid foundation for me to pursue a career in academia while the masters program allowed me to be an engineering manager, program manager, and systems engineer in the defense & aerospace industry. CTU has and will continue to play a significant role in my professional path as a researcher.*

My educational and professional background is very similar to our student population. I was a nontraditional student who had to work fulltime while attending college. I completed my master's online at CTU. I went on to teach at universities, published articles and books, and held appointments at CTU and other universities as a scholar researcher, professor, program chair, visiting fellow, entrepreneur-in-residence, lecturer, and now university dean at CTU.*

John P.

Program: BSBA - Human Resource Management

Year: 2007

I have aspired for many years to become a top HR professional and leader and because of my education I have definitely achieved many of my personal and professional goals. The best part about the CTU experience for me was the convenience of being able to balance working full-time while pursuing my life long dream of getting a bachelor's degree with a concentration in HR. While the courses were rigorous, they were also very convenient. I could take my classes at night, on the weekends and from just about anywhere I chose.*

Online Learning

Not every student desires or needs a traditional on-campus learning environment. CTU offers online degree programs so that our students can fit education into their life and not the other way around.

Online degree students access education through CTU's Virtual Campus. Our students can log in to the Virtual Campus 24/7 to engage with their education from anywhere that has an internet connection. Students can attend in person lectures or review them in the archives, check grades and complete assignments, or review student accounts and finances. Students can also access the Virtual Commons to interact with classmates and instructors.

Also housed within our Virtual Campus is My Unique Student Experience (M.U.S.E.), our flexible learning platform. M.U.S.E. puts education at the fingertips of our online degree seeking students to help them to have a more real world experience. Whether through watching, listening, reading or practicing, M.U.S.E. offers a system that embraces different learning styles and explores course material in the context of real world situations. It stimulates learners to take control of their education, engage with the material on a deeper level and enjoy the learning experience.

Inside the Classroom

Colorado Technical University takes a whole new approach to education inside the classroom. CTU’s ground campuses, one in Aurora (outside Denver) and one in Colorado Springs, offer modern facilities and learning labs that immerse students in a rich, collaborative educational experience. Degrees at our ground campuses are offered at the associate, bachelor’s and master’s level to meet the needs of students at each stage of the educational journey.

Our campuses exist because we know that many of our students desire an inperson educational experience. Our ground campuses allow us to offer you feature-rich classrooms, advanced technology, career service centers and more. For some students there is no replacement for an in-classroom experience but there is still a need for increased flexibility. For our on-campus students, we offer nights and weekend classes as well as online-hybrid programs, so students can work around their schedule as much as possible without losing the in classroom environment they want. Our invigorating geographical locations help to combine our students' learning experience with a social environment.
