Perfect for Me
Project Management - January 28, 2016
I decided to go back to school to get my masters simply because I wanted to learn more. I already have my PMP and I wanted to make sure that I attended a school was accredited in the project management field. I looked around locally for schools in my state and none had graduate degrees in project management. Most do not have undergraduate degrees in project management either. They have classes in project management, but I don't need a class. The other thing that I like about Keller is that my online classes are really online. I have a coworker that attends a state school online but it's not really online. She has to take half day vacation to travel to where her school is located to take a test or spend $70 at a testing center. She has taken one teacher (twice) that doesn't really get the concept of online teaching because he gives long homework assignments after 5:00 that are due the next day - (basically no Syllabus for working adults that need to manage their time wisely). The lectures are set a specific time and not recorded for later use. Her tuition is cheaper, but by the time you add in all of the fees and the promise from the state government that college tuition costs will increase as they have done every single semester since she started, she will be paying the same as I what I pay at a set rate. She is also getting a graduate degree in a field that she really isn't working and doesn't plan to work in. The reason why I am saying this is because I see a lot of people talk about the cost at Keller, but they aren't taking into the account the whims of state governments controlling the costs. As well, I like having teachers that have worked outside of academia because as a working adult I can relate to them. I have learned a lot at Keller because I made an adult choice to go back to school for myself. I work hard on every paper (which there are lot of them due in every class) and presentation. I read my texts constantly and participate in the discussions. I have not been given anything. I work for it.
Keller is a great School!!!
MBA - December 23, 2015
I am of the firm belief - what you get out of an education, is what you put into it. This goes for any college as long as it is regionally accredited which DeVry is. What makes the clock tick is the experience you bring to the table. Bottom line up front, Keller Graduate School of Management offers an awesome MBA program that is perfect for working adults in certain situations. In my situation, I was getting out of the military and was in the process of moving to a different state but wanted to attend most classes in person not exclusively on-line. With DeVry being nationwide for the most part, I was able to move in the middle of my program without losing any credits. To me, not retaking many of my classes was more important than saying I went to a State School- which I don’t condemn by no means but want to encourage those who are attending DeVry to stay in the fight and ignore the wet blankets who continue to bash a regionally accredited institution with a snobbish connotation. This MBA has opened my eyes tremendously as it pertains to business - by the way, it’s the same material used by other universities. Principles that are taught do not change – it’s the same principle coming from a DeVry, Keller Graduate School of Management Professor as it is coming from the professor at University of ???? It’s what you put in it – keep going and achieve your dreams!
MBA - December 19, 2015
I have a healthy question. In you all's opinions, will a person's resume go in the shredder in most cases if they have an MBA for DeVry, Keller Graduate School of Management. As a student, I have learned a lot due to putting in the effort. In my mind, what you learned in theory aligned with a good work ethic is what is important to an employer. Since regional accrediting, which Devry has, is what is given to all top tier schools - I figured DeVry would be seen as a reputable institution. If not, could someone explain why? Just a healthy and honest question..........
Not worth it after all
MBA - October 23, 2015
The company I worked for partnered with Keller in the form of a 10% discount on tuition. After completing my MBA in December of 2012, my position was eliminated in a downsizing in October of 2013 after 23 years of service. As of October 2015 I am still unemployed and I've had only 2 interviews for management positions during this time. Perhaps it is because I'm a 52 year old white male, I'm starting to feel like I don't fit into the diversity demographics that companies are looking for, along with a degree that seems to be of dubious value.
This School Really Sucks!!!!
MBA - September 18, 2015
This school is a joke!!! They charge entirely too much for tuition (in and out of state), financial aid department really likes to screw around with people award packages but I see they make sure they get their money off top first and then loves to turn around to say, "sorry but you will not be getting a refund this semester due to the number of classes you are taking." What? I've been taking the same amount of classes with no issue. When they see you are about to get a large refund of your on freaking money they snatch it and come up with an excuse as to why you can't get. What a joke for a school. I will not be recommending this so called school to anyone that I know. I will actually do the opposite and recommend that they not ever attend followed by my long list of negative experiences.

Good school to attend
MBA - January 20, 2015
I have went to a brick and barter school and had my reservations. I have found Keller Graduate school of Management to be a good experience. During my time there I went to school on Campus and also online. I have found both to be a good experience. I liked the online better. This allowed me the opportunity get up early in then morning and study, and take test. I have found the support to be exceptional, even after graduating they are still reaching out making sure that I am pursuing my field of study.

Great MBA option
MBA - February 28, 2014
I earned my MBA at Keller and found it to be an excellent option for myself. If you travel a lot for business you can earn it while on the road since it is online based. It's great to have class members who are mostly already seasoned professionals from throughout the world. You get different perspectives because the classmates come from a variety of industries.

Top tier online college!!
Network and Communications Management - October 16, 2013
Keller Graduate School is an outstanding college for online students. I have been going to Keller for a little over a year now and I have found that the instructors are very knowledgeable. If you reach out to them in email they will respond with great "real world" advice. I have had nothing short of an amazing experience with this college and DeVry University. There are some teachers who seem to take a class of in the discussions but I have only had one bad experience during my entire time in school. Even then it wasn't that bad. After I brought the issue up to the Professor they corrected the issue immediately. I do mean immediately. After all, they are getting paid and they do get surveys on their performance. Overall great experience and I would not have picked any other school to go to. Yes, I am a real student.... ;p

Master of Human Resource Management - May 8, 2013
I wasn't sure I wanted to keep going after my bachelors degree, but I decided to give it a shot. The registration, financing, and attendance were no trouble at all. All my classes were on line and enabled me to work full time. I was even able to take a vacation and still take my finals and turn in my papers. The professors and staff helped me learn much more than I thought I could and that is how I will become successful. Very pleased with the experience, but I am glad I am done.
