DeVry University Reviews - Bachelor's in Business
I have to agree with the other reviewers. When I first transfer to DeVry, I received a lot of attention and they assured me that there was always going to be help available with questions/concerns. During my first semester, I took two classes. Mind you these are the same two classes I previously took at another College but DeVry said they were not at the level that they wanted so I had to take them again. One of the classes, I thought was very easy. I logged in twice a week since that was the class schedule. The teacher gave me a d for participation. When I asked her why, she says that I'm on there but I am not participating in the discussions. So I started getting involved in the discussions and asking stupid questions since I already knew all this material from a previous class. Then the teacher stated that I should log in everyday to get full participation grade. Both of these classes were a joke. I decided that I was going to change to another school. These two classes added up to over $8,000 to my financial aid school loan. Really? This is not Yale...although I know that one is very expensive, they truly believe that this school's tuition is as great as a top notch College. Oh, & where is the help that they assured me..no where. On top of the over $8,000 bill, the school auto-enrolled me into another course without informing me and I moved from my house. Davey is charging me an additional $500 separately for abandoning the course and they're holding my transcripts until I pay the $500 preventing me from furthering my studies at another school. Yes, beware of this school. Anytime an organization has to lure you and tells you this is the best, it's because it isn't.
DeVry University, is underrated. I feel that this University deserves an around of applause. My personal experience was fabulous! I lived on campus when we had dorms at the Fremont, CA campus for 1 year and I loved it. I started my journey in 2015 and now 2.5 years later, I have my Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. DeVry prepares you for the real world. This school gives you the tools to advance your skills and to practice your skills on the job. I'm currently, going for my MBA with a concentration in Human Resource Management management. To all the future students, don't let someone else's bad experience discourage you from futhering your education. DeVry University is a wonderful school and they really do care about the students here. Don't believe what you read. Come and see for yourself:)
Expensive, but worth every penny. This school is very good in preparing students like myself for a career in business. Especially when trying to balance work, school and children. Also, combined with the technology aspect for advancement in my future.
My degree is a BS in Technical Management. DeVry uses this degree to give course credit based on past experience, military training, and non-transferable classes allowing you to finish your degree quicker. I started with the school at 48 years old because finishing a degree was always important to me. My opinion of DeVry is that they are committed to you completing your degree as long as you are committed to completing your degree. Like traditional schools I've attended courses are not always fun but they are concise and immediately applicable. I especially appreciate the compressed schedule but it's hard work. I'm proud of my degree. It's opened doors that were not previously available and I haven't heard anyone address the education as inferior.
Devry is a great school for engineers or professionals looking to receive your degree from a school that works around your schedule. It doesn't make too much difference where you get your degree, it's the amount of work you put into your career after school.
Derry covers all the same study areas as standard BS universities. The difference is greater practical application verses theoretical study. I finished my BSEET with a 3.85 leading me to a 33 year career with Intel Corp. My experiences during my career are numerous and i wouldn't trade them for anything. While at Intel I worked in manufacturing, product development and 14 years in research with Intel Labs. I'm now retired and my career with Intel has been a great experience. I'm grateful for my education from DeVry.
I attended DeVry from September 2009 thru October 2012 studying Business Management and Human Resources Management. I enjoyed attending the classes onsite, but had to take several online courses in 2011 and 2012 because the onsite classes weren't available. I graduated Suma Cum Laude because I studied very hard, and read everything in the textbooks and associated online information. I prefer the onsite classes because of the knowledge gleamed from discussions with other students and professors. I must say, I did have to take extra classes after I had enrolled at DeVry, because, suddenly, new requirements were added to my chosen programs. I had over $61,000 in student loans -- which forced me to take out a 2nd on my house. It is now 2016, and I still have not been able to secure a permanent position. Now that I have read some of these online reviews, I have learned that some employers do not recognize DeVry as an accredited university. I am very disappointed that I spent so much money on my education, and have not enhanced my career (which is kind of in limbo since I can only find short-term temp work). I would recommend DeVry based on my onsite learning experience; but, I will advise the student to find out if their employer will accept a DeVry education; and for the student to stay on top of their loan balance and how it is paid.
I was in the Business Management Program with a concentration on Technical management The professors and staff here at DeVry University in Westminster Colorado are the best. If you need anything or just need to talk because you are so overwhelmed whether at school or at home there doors are always open 24/7. The Aspire program is the best because I used it and it is a great tool that DeVry has to help the students. Go attend DeVry University it is well worth it.
I am a 45 year old who has recently made a big decision to go to school. I think that if someone wants to take the time to do this then DeVry is the school for you. They have made it very easy to know what you need to do, how you are going to pay for it, what your bills will be at the end of the journey, and they are here to help you suceed to do what you are capabile of doing. I am glad that I took the time to pursue this journey with them. I recommend that each student take COLL148 before any other class. this class helped me to see what my full potential is and it helped me to discover that I am capabile of going back after so many years of being out of school. I look forward to the rest of my journey and am inspired by the staff and students that currently I have interaction with. This was my review after taking just two courses. Since then I have taken many and still feel the same. DeVry is well worth the effort and money. They have wonderful professors, administration, fellow students, and a staff of individuals that are very knowledgable in their areas of work. DeVry staff help you see what you are capable of doing and are there when you need them to answer a question or solve a problem. They are all well worth every penny that I am spending on my adventure to get a degree that I want.
This school is not worth your time or money. There has been several times while in class I have heard people joke that they did not answer the questions on the assignment, however, they still got full credit. One of my continuous issues was trying to get intouch with my advising team. It took them a whole week to get back to me. The teachers do not necessarily grade your work on quality, it is if you turned it in. All Washington campus's are closing. After receiving the call from young gal at the office to make a decision on whether, I intended to become a full online student(I was a half campus/online student), or transfer to another institution. They claimed they would help with the process to attend another college. I choose to go to another college. It was nearly impossible to get a hold of some one at the local campus. They were all getting laid off! Word to the wise, this institution is not looked upon highly by employers. I wasted a year of my life, and hundreds of dollars. Attend this school with caution.
