Student & Graduate Reviews (3)

5 out of 5
Degree: Human Resources Management and Services, Other
Graduation Year: 2012

I graduated from Ottawa University with a BA in Management in the summer of '09. I was a transfer student previously attending Capella University. Ottawa has a very generous credit transfer policy. All of my credits from Capella as well as from my military service were transferred, including some credits from previously earned industry standard certifications. For my learning experience and because of my work schedule I prefer a combination of online learning and traditional. Ottawa provided both. Some of my courses were completed at either the Phoenix or Chandler AZ campus, as well as a few online. Both experiences were wonderful, however, I must say that I preferred working directly with the instructors in the live classes. The instructors were great in either format but I prefer live real time interaction from faculty and students. The lessons were very challenging and did not come across as busy work. They were directly related to real world issues and up to date. The faculty members are very experienced in their fields as well as very approachable with a desire for you to succeed. I appreciated the flexibility of the schedules as the courses here in Phoenix are geared towards working adults and are 8 week courses at both the undergrad and grad levels. Average costs for tuition were on par for most private institutions, but I feel the high quality of the education here is what separates Ottawa from the rest. Ottawa is a Baptist based university that emphasizes Christian values. However, the values do not overshadow the core concepts of courses taught. It's wonderful however, since I am a Christian, to include my Christian perspectives in discussions and written assignments without being insulted as the case with many liberal colleges. It's a very welcomed part of the learning experience. I happened to work at a local university as well at the time and although my education would have been a free benefit for me where I worked, I still preferred to study at Ottawa because of the high quality of the education. Sorry to disappoint some folks, but this is not a diploma mill; you will work hard for the degree! After graduation I was accepted in their Masters in HR program and graduated from that as well 2 years later. Worth the money and time for a great education.

Degree: Business Administration and Management, General
Graduation Year: 2014

Quality education and professors. Currently working on my Master's Degree now with Ottawa. Courses do require hard work, time and research. But you will learn from these courses and be able to apply what you learn to your career, especially with the Management major.

Degree: Human Services, General

Good teachers/professors. Fair amount of hard work required, but worth the money in quality education.
