I have read several of the negative reviews and while everyone is entitled to their opinion, I must say that my experience with Baker was great.

I recently completed my BBA in corporate HR-accelerated program, and most of this was done while being full time in the US Army deployed to Iraq, and stationed in South Korea on a hardship duty assignment.

My advisor for the military was excellent always there for me, and went above and beyond to ensure that I stayed on track.

Everyone of my Teachers were proffesional and helpful ( some more than others) but all met or exceeded my expectations.

I completed my degree while deployed and it was very very very challenging to do so, but with the help of the staff at Baker, I graduated a month before I retired from active duty after 21 years of service. great school proud to be an alumni and would highly recommend this school.

Overall I would say Baker is not a bad school for online courses. I have been going online for two years now and some of the teachers are not the best but the classes are six weeks and are a lot of work. For me my schedule at work leaves me pretty worn out and the accelerated courses are just not for me with all the work you must do in one week.

After having completed my BBA (all online) I would highly recommend Baker's Accounting program to any responsible individual. The accounting curriculum is the most purposed and certainly the most extensive I was able to find of all the online schools.

Online courses offer much freedom, but on the same hand require an equal amount of self-discipline. In short, what you put in to the program is exactly what you'll get out of it. Some of the complaints I've read I would certainly take with a grain of salt, although Baker, like ALL online educational institutions, do have some of the typical problems.

My program was filled with a wide variance of instructor personalities, but all were helpful. In general, I did find that those with a Masters degrees were much more involved than those with Doctorates, but all were certainly adequate to outstanding.

The one drawback that I experienced was a complete absence of video lectures, with the exception of the Stats course, which was outstanding.

For reference, I graduated at age 50 in Dec 08 with a 4.0 GPA and currently manage a private CPA firm of ~35 people.

I'm currently attending Baker Online, and have been for the past 3 years working on my Bachelor's of Business Administration in Accounting. I've read some other reviews that bash the school's policies and teachers, but from what I've read, you can run into the same problems at numerous different institutions. Since I started back in 2007, things have gotten better. The system outages are much less frequent and the instructors are more versed in the class topics. Yes, some instructors are not very involved in the learning process or they answer your questions with another question (which is unhelpful), but the majority of them are great and are willing to help you so long as you put the effort in. I've definitely learned a lot (I had no prior experience of any kind in Accounting when I started taking classes) and now have recommendations/references from instructors with Doctorate degrees and real job experience in Accounting. I would absolutely recommend this school - 100% online classes allow me to work full-time and attend classes full-time.

I'm currently a student at Baker College Clinton Township and will transfer to Port Huron nest year. I'm finding that tutoring is impossible to get these days. In the last ten days I have tried to get a appointment in the writing center for help and they have been booked up. Lab is the same way, when i go to study there is one skull and not enough materials for everyone there. I think they might be enrolling a lot of students because everyone is going back to school. But they do not have enough resources for all of us. I enrolled here because the offered flexability. I should not have to compete for a education. I think they are just thinking of all the money there making for each student. but not how there going to accomidate for all of them. I'm starting to get angry. The learning center has become a joke on helping

Currently I enrolled this college, in oder to get my B.S. degree in web development. What makes me disapointed is that I took the web 211 class, an instrctor uses the book which most students don't like that, because each chapter's exercises don't match the examples that the chapter want to teach you, sometimes you need the extra effort to solve these programs(exercises). This makes some students ( alomost new to the Javascript)hard to learn. We suggested the instructor to change the book which is suitable for the beginners, the instructor just ignored this.

Baker online college is not worth the money. Fist of all, some of the teachers don't do anything. I have had a few teachers at Baker that should be working somewhere else. They can't decide what they want as far as course work nor can they respond to emails within a timely manner.

Baker policy is that a teacher must post grades by midnight on monday of the following week. That doesn't happen. I have had grades posted 4 weeks late by teachers. Don't bother calling to complain either because the college will not enforce their own rules on teachers. Secondly, the classes are a joke.

You basically pay the college to give you credit for reading a book and doing most of the work by yourself. My teachers did not interact and teach me anything. I learned it all from the book. I would not reccomend that anyone use this school. It's not worth the money.

Baker is like any other College you make it as hard or as easy as you want. Most of the instructors are great but like any other college you get some that are not. I have attended Baker for one year and so far I would say I have had a good experience. Online learning is not for everyone think about it before you make a choice and go online.

I have had a postive experience with Baker and I have three more classes to finish my MBA. Baker is fully accredited and like any other school you get out, what you put in. I saw one comment about the teaching staff not being good and it was pretty obvious that this person is not familiar with this form of education since most instructors teach at multiple online institutions. My brother is getting his PhD from Cappella and we have some of the same instructors.

The courses are not cake walks and sometimes it is hard to juggle life, work and school. Classes run for six weeks and I am usually locked down away from the wife and kids during that time. I have used all my text books and I keep them in my office so I can reference them for work. Baker offers an affordable and sound education.

Enrolled in the MBA program in the Overland Park campus. The course work was to easy and I didn’t feel like I was learning anything.. I basically felt like I was buying an MBA degree. I asked them once if this was going to be it can I just write you a check and stop wasting my Thursday nights. The program is also not as flexible as they say it is for those who travel a lot for work. The computer they make you use is junk and the IT department is most unhelpful in trying to fix it. The accounting department also has poor service. I would recommend choosing another school for your studies.
