Keller Graduate School of Management Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (47)
I just finished my MBA at Keller Graduate School of management over the course of 8 years part time while having a full time job and 3 kids. I only took a couple classes a year and eventually finished with a MBA with a concentration in project management. Keller isn't perfect, but it is pretty good. it is affordable and flexible for your schedule as a working adult with a job and family. The professors are surprisingly good. The online content could use some improvement but it is expensive to update this type of online curriculum on a constant basis while keeping tuition affordable. I recommend taking classes in person at a local Chicago campus. To vouch for the quality of the professors, all of the project management classes used PMI curriculum. The PMBOK 5th edition was the text book. After finishing 4 elective concentration courses in project management I did additional self study and took the PMP exam and passed on my first attempt without any boot camps or any other supplements. The classes DID teach you what you need to be successful. Now I'm a MBA with a PMP certification from an arguably budget "for profit" school. My conclusion is that it was a good value and got what I wanted out of it.
Keller was a great school and it certainly enhanced my career. I am a IT Program Manager of over 40 personnel and it has increased my ability to lead these technicians with confidence. The school was perfect for what I needed and the instructors were very knowledgeable. I feel like I got the education that I was looking for. There were no surprises. I am a Veteran and going to Keller was perfect for me and my situation. I highly recommend Keller, however if you are looking for someone to hand you a degree then look elsewhere. You will have to work for it at this school.
Devry is a predatory for-profit business looking to steal your money with no regard for the student at all. Below is a snippet from one of the many letters I had to write to them requesting they return the funds they fraudulently obtained. Please note my original complaint began on December 13th, 2016 when I contacted the Tinley Park Campus and voiced my concern with the VA certifying official. I questioned why I was withdrawn from 2016 FIN560 without my knowledge or consent and stated that my participation was constant throughout the entire 2016 FIN560. I explained that I was not made aware of any such requirements or was I contacted by any officials notifying me of my pending automatic drop. I was later referred to Student Central Manager who told me that I was dropped due to lack of participation and that the system automatically drops students after 7 days. Ultimately she referred me to the Keller Catalog as an unsatisfactory resolution to the issue. Ironically, I was automatically enrolled in following courses again without my consent or knowledge however I was made aware of my lack of participation, attendance, etc. for this course which prompted me quickly resolve Devrys mistake. After many failed attempts to resolve this amicably I filled a student complain form on February 13th, 2017 with The Student Central Manager.
Other than the high cost associated with the school, I must say what I learned at Keller was phenomenal! After moving from State to State for years and raising a family of 4, my hope and desire to finish my Masters Degree had almost dwindled. I would enroll for classes only to have my family move away to another state for a new position or appointment. I attended a total of 4 State Universities but I was never able to finish my degree because they lacked the Hybrid (Onsite & online) 24/7 competitive advantage Keller provided me. Not only that, but the quality of learning at those State Schools was no better than Keller; and in some instances, the hands-on-activities approach Keller provided made the programs a lot more superior! They were preparing us for the real life experiences they themselves had experienced or were experiencing since most or all the professors were already professionals in the areas of their expertise. The other component to Keller is that it is mostly tailored towards the mature, responsible student who can study on their own and not expect a professor to do all the work for them. I credit my ability to complete a Master's degree to the way the program is offered and structured. I would suggest though that Keller puts some of the money the students pay into their Career Services to make sure Keller Graduates find jobs after graduating and help remove the stigma of attending a for "Profit School"!
I understand that a good number of people dislike for-profit schools and their model. This is for good reason. However, I have to say that my experience with this school, in particular the on-campus classes has been excellent! The professors all have substantial experience in the fields that they are teaching, and most of them currently work in those fields. I also have to say that this because this school is for-profit, they have the onus of trying put out a good product out there. So, it isn't good business to put out a poor product. In addition, the truth is that many people have been quite successful after attending this school. Finally, no school will continue to have regional accreditation for years if it a scam. I also understand that for most people the school is simply too expensive, and they don't want to be associated with the for-profit stigma. I was blessed to have been able to use my GI bill for this school which I'm very thankful for. If it wasn't for that, I would not have gone either. One other thing to point out is that there are a number of respected corporations that pay their employees to go to these schools over regular universities. There is a reason for that. These types of schools in particular DeVry/Keller is known for specifically provide career-oriented training. Again, each person must do what's best for him or her.
Keller Management School of DeVry University provides great IT programs that meets the real world job requirements in effort to achieve a high paying employment position in todays' market place! If you are looking for a place to learn what you need to be a successful and happy Keller Management or DeVry University is the right place to invest your military educational benefits, hard earn money, and your precious time if you looking to receive double the invest. If I did it so can you.
Thank to DeVry University and Keller School of Management. I am able to complete my degrees in short period of time. I really enjoyed my classmates online and in the classroom. I highly recommend DeVry University and Keller School of Management to anyone looking to further their education
Horrible program. Huge errors with financial aid. I made a complaint, which was taken out of context, and forwarded to academic integrity. I called two years later to get a copy of my diploma and they said I had not graduated. They said I could retake the course if I talked to a conduct panel. I went directly to the office of civil rights with the department of education to complain. Then I notified their accreditation board and Illinois dept of higher education. Illinois has the best website to document your higher education claims. I highly recommend it. The link is at the bottom of the Keller graduate school website page. Email adaofficer@Keller. Edu if they try this with you. File an ocr complaint immediately. They tried to set a hearing of some sort on a day I had a doctor's appt. I did not receive any work, and I still make crappy money.
This school actually is a home for experts. The professors, administrative staff, and the learning environment all work together to ensure the production of new experts. I graduated from this school in 2015 and I witnessed that it is really of very high practical standard. The one thing that I would say should be considered as a negative side is of-course the price.
I graduated in 2004 from Keller Graduate School of Management in Decatur, GA, sucessfully and that's all I can say about that. However I'm now pursuing a 2nd Masters at from a different institution and trying to obtain my transcript from Keller is like pulling teeth or worse. Of course you can only request and pay for the transcript online, which I did and it got both a confirmation# and a receipt. Here we are two weeks later and nothing. So here is the problem, the website offers two options either request from Devry or Keller (I graduated from both schools and have both degrees on hand). I only requested and paid for my Keller transcript to be sent electronically. I must add that in addition to the Masters Degree I also completed a certificate program in Healthcare Administration. Can somebody tell me why Keller chose only to send my Certificate and totally ignored the Masters degree. I have since called and now I'm being told my degree is in REVIEW to make sure all the T's were crossed and I's were dotted...WHAT!!!!! and it's holding up my entire acceptance into the other school. I am soooooo aggravated at this point and need some answers and help ASAP. I worked too hard for this degree to be going through all of this. NO one is able to give me an appropriate response. PLEASE HELP.
