Keller Graduate School of Management Reviews - Master's in Accounting
Review of Accounting Masters Degrees
I believe Keller has great programs and the professors are experienced. It was a great school for my busy schedules. Everyone at Devry and Keller are very helpful. I really enjoyed my several years of going there. I worked really hard to earn my degree at Keller.
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 had some exceptional professors at DeVry Keller's Graduate School of Management. The professor had years of experiences in their field, and they brought that experiences and details to the classroom. Information that was given will definitely help me with my career, and opened my mind to other potential careers that I can explore. W.D., R.A., and B.G. are great professor to have if you need to take any accounting or audit related courses.
I recommend the Specialized Master's Degree Program in Accounting & Financial Management (MAFM). I elected the CPA emphasis and graduated in 2012. The Keller coursework and Becker CPA Review helped improve my ability to pass the licensing exams. I appreciated the course flexibility with an online option. All the professors I had during my time at Keller were active CPA's and/or MBA graduates. I was promoted within the first 3 courses completed in 2010 and 3 years later, 2013, accepted a management level position outside the company, increasing my salary by 44%. Obviously, the degree wasn't the only reason for improvement in my career, but I think it's an important piece.
I found Keller Graduate School Of Management in Atlanta(Buckhead), Ga was very hard in the beginning for a student that has been out of school for a while, but once I got back into the grove of things I found it very nice. The classes was very well put together and delivered by instructors that are knowledgeable in their subjects,IE Accountants(CPA,CFA,CMA) taught accounting courses,These instructors held day jobs in these fields and worked at Keller at night. So your learning experience was more practical, with examples of real world situations and current knowledge of the industry or class of interest.
The old saying does not apply at Keller, Doers; do and the rest teach. They are doing every day what they are teaching you. And for Accounting/Financial professionals, the most important factors is how proficient are you? You do not want to be an Accountant that do not understand and can apply your craft or you will be unemployed..With Accounting "theory" will help you pass a class but "application" will help you land and keep a job.
I wanted my masters degree in accounting and found the Keller MAFM program was most affordable. I did my due diligence beforehand and made sure I understood the structure of the program before I began. My employer paid part of my tuition and I had loans for the remainder. Overall I had a great experience, I have stayed in touch with others form the program and having the degree is a help in getting promoted where I work. As I said, overall a good experience.
