Harris School of Business Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (56)
This place is the biggest joke of a school ever. Out of the 4 teachers I've had so far 2 were a disgrace. You practically have to teach yourself. If you have Ms Woodard RUN!!!!! She only leaves you confused and dazed. It's obvious she has no clue as to what she is teaching or talking about. And regardless of the number of complaints they get on her they won't get rid of her because there are no other teachers out there who want to deal w Harris because of how disorganized the entire administration is. Save yourself.
THIS IS THE WORST IDEA EVER!!!!! PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM THIS INSTITUTION. THEY MAKE YOU BELIEVE THEY ARE SERIOUS ABOUT YOU CAREER.. BUT IN REALITY THE DONT GIVE A DAMN ABOUT YOU. ALL THEY WANT IS YOUR MONEY. TEACHERS ARE OK (SOME)BUT MANAGEMENT IS TERRIBLE. OUR CLASS WAS WITHOUT TEACHER FOR 2 WHOLE WEEKD BC SEH/HE WAS ON VACATIONS AND THE DIRECTOR DIDN'T GIVE A CRAP IN FINDING A REPLACENT. ADDING MORE CRAP TO THIS IS THE FACT THAT SOME OF US DIDN'T PASS THE CLASS (ARE YOU SERIOUS?) PLEASE STAY AWAY
I was so excited about attending Harris and becoming a certified Medical Assistant. The first Mod was good, then it all went down hill. We had a person in the class who had kidnapping charges and other felony's on his/her record, and caused a lot of trouble with the class. Then, the second MOD was a pure nightmare. We did not get the books for our A & P and Medical Terminology classes until the last day of our third week. For most of us it was very difficult to learn, but that was not the biggest problem, the biggest problem was there was so much b@tching about the books, that we did not get anything out of our classes. After, hearing about all of the negative things about the school, (I still tried to keep a positive outlook), I started researching and found that I could attend a community college and receive an associates degree for only $5,000 less than I am paying Harris for a certification. I have meant the most interesting people in while attending Harris and the instructors are great, but they are not trained instructors (and they were not happy and let it be known). So, I would not recommend Harris, just because if you really want to be successful, you need to be able to learn and practice what you are suppose to be learning and not being distracted by all of the negativity.
Have big dreams? Want to advance your career and make more money? Read all of the BAD REVIEWS before you incur almost $14,000 in debt. The cost for this so-called "school" isn't justified. You may get a $5,500 grant & wind up paying back the rest + interest for a career you may never have as the quality of the education you get here (where most of the teachers have admitted to "hating" school and not doing well even in high school).
I'm disclosing the cost of the programs since you won't get anyone to reveal it over the phone. There isn't enough room here to list the MANY COMPLAINTS I have about this place. This Harris is located in upscale Cherry Hill, yet you'll feel you're in the GHETTO whenever you enter the halls or classrooms. Oh and watch that you don't trip over all of the STUDENTS SITTING ON THE FLOOR IN THE HALLS!
I went here expecting a quality education, instead this school is very unorganized and does not prepare you well for the work force. I am left with this huge college loan I have to pay back when I could have gone somewhere cheaper. Not to mention medical assistants do not get paid well.
I am very happy with my job that I got but the school did not at all help me find my job. When I needed help with my resume because I had an interview coming up, they did not respond for 3 days, by then I had already had the interview. I could go on and on but I will just say that the school is completely unorganized, the education is not at all challenging, and I would not recommend anybody going here.
Go to a community college if you want to be a medical assistant, or better yet, go to a community college with a major that will pay you well when you're done.
I Just finished SChool There love the teachers the courses arent really hard but I would love to go back In time and choose a different option.
I Planned to finish Harris and Find a Great Job But Harris Have bad reviews from the extern sites and not many doctor office wanna deal with Harris nor there students.. so I suggest whom ever read this think twice before settling this school paying 13,000 is not worth just a diploma and Offices that dont wanna hire you.
i Believe Your best option is to RETHINK im not trying to down talk Harris im just trying to help I just wish Someone would have told me ahead of time.
IM SMARTER THAN THEM I CAN TEACH THE CLASS THEY DONT HAVE YOUR BACK BUT IM TO EDUCATED FOR THIS PROGRAM I NEED A CHALLENGE IM ACADEMICALLY GIFTED
Please don't waste your money on this school do your research first before considering attending this school. I attended some years back and I regret it.
While the staff and all the instructors were really nice, I have to be honest for the money they charged you could have received a college degree. You are better off attending CCC or BCC and earn real credits that can be transferred. BCC offers many of the same programs that this school offers but much cheaper. I learned the hard way and went back to school and now I'm working on my masters in chemical engineering.
I took the time out to write this review because I was contacted by them to do a "where are they now" review. By no means did I want them to think they had been instrumental in success but that was the purpose of me being contacted. So I decided to do my own review. The purpose of this review is not to say they are a bad school but is to say that there are many other cheaper options out there. That goes for pretty much all technical schools including the ridiculously over priced prism.
The faculty were terrific. They helped me through some classes that were very hard. They care about their students. I have read some reviews and it is obvious that after attendiong myself, the negative comments are ridiculous. Good school-
