I am getting ready to publish my dissertation and have found my doctoral journey with Baker College to be a very good experience. The Dean is excellent, my chair and committee members outstanding, and the instructor staff very knowledgeable. Technical support was excellent as well. My online doctoral journey with Baker was challenging and very rewarding. I strongly recommend Baker's DBA program!

If you take the time to read the poor reviews you'll find people saying they had to do work and they didn't like it, or maybe you'll even see the guy who left a bad review because he got a bad grade because he liked to turn his assignments in late. It's sad people who want to degrade the school because they didn't want to do the work. College isn't easy. I'm sorry for those that think no child left behind should apply to college. In the military I've attended several colleges and combined them together with Embry-Riddle for my B.S. I did like Embry-Riddle. However, not one of the colleges/universities I attended held a candle to my experience at Baker College Center for Graduate Studies. Every dollar I spent I got two dollars back in education. The work was challenging, but great! My MBA has helped me with every facet of my life. When I took my B.S. I felt like I was getting maybe 40% value for my money. With Baker I felt like I was getting closer to 95%. Yes they are accredited. Embry-Riddle holds its own prestige in its own right, and my ERAU counselor even pushed me to Baker for my MBA for more breadth. People can say what they want, but I definitely graduated feeling like I left with a true graduate education. All I can say is thank you to my great professors, and I'm sorry for the "children left behind."

I have just completed the first year of the MBA program and am very happy with their program. I have read all the complaints here about how it is such an inconvenience to have to participate 5 out of 7 days as well as how intense the workload is. Well it is not meant to be a free ride, this is college and no one said it would be easy. For people who think this program is too hard, I would recommend that you look into on-ground classes instead of trying to work online. Online classes require dedication and committment far beyond that of on-ground classes. That being said, if you have the dedication and committment required to be successful in an online environment, Baker is the college you will want to attend.

While I have nor problem with the intensity or the quantity of work for their online classes. When I first looked for information on this school there was not a lot out there to go on. I wish there was. It would have saved me a lot of grief. But I didn't like that there was no interaction whatsoever between the professors and students when it came to discussion questions. There is no meaningful exchange of ideas, there is no way to know if you are on track until after everything has been graded. Their administration is a joke - particularly financial aid. Beware if you are in the grad program that your first class is not covered by aid [it is not even considered a full class and yet it is mandatory] and they will send all monies back to the originator forcing you to carry a balance that you are personally responsible for. This will also cause any other loans in deferment to come due during the class and they won't be placed in deferment until you are in the second "full time" class. Their platforms are supposed to be compatible with a variety of computers, but beware - professors will require software for certain classes that are only compatible with PC's. So if you are on a MAC or Linux you are out of luck. If you need assistance. Good luck. You will get passed around 4-5 times to people who are clueless and have no problem saying that they are clueless and can't help you. Not only that, but you get the privilege of having people be mean, rude, and disrespectful when you are in need of help. So think twice, three times, before thinking of going to this school. They are even being sued: http://dockets.justia.com/docket/court-miedce/case_no-5:2008cv13061/case_id-231972/ I don't know the particulars, but research before you get involved with any school. Truly better safe than sorry. And I am sorry I ever dealt with these people.
