Keller Graduate School of Management Reviews - Master's in Human Resources
Review of Human Resources Masters Degrees
I'm not sure how this school has managed to get 4 or 5 stars from other viewers but this review from me is something you may want to read. if considering going here, DON'T !!. it is not worth it! you will not learn anything and when you try to transfer their credits are not recognized. I decided to go to this school ONLY because my job was paying and even with my job paying for my degree I realized that I was doing myself a disservice by continuing this path. I received A's in the 3 classes I took online but I can honestly tell you I do not know one thing in any of these classes. If you are looking for a school to give you and A then this is the right place for you; however when you step out into the work world with that A you did not earn, you will quickly realize why other schools do NOT accept their credits. you will be at the new job with ZERO knowledge. Just imagine trying to transfer out of keller and to an accredited school, only for you to be informed by the adviser that " we will accept these completed courses from your UNDERGRAD degree but not these from Keller" . My undergrad credits are worth more than this! Lets discuss financial department. My job was paying for me to go here but somehow I ended up owing keller money because their financial aid did not apply the money on time. IMAGINE THAT!! I had to go through 2 weeks of back and forth with them about a $540 balance on my account because of their error! They even threatened to drop me off the next semester if I did not clear the balance - my job had to get involved. Lets discuss professors . You have an issues with a professor? don't bother reaching out to your adviser, or your dean. your best option is the OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT. that is the only way to ever get an issue resolved. Lets discuss classes : I had a class start for an entire week with no professor. No professor for an online class for an entire week. why not you ask? the teacher could not "access the class" however keller could access the corporate checks! I promise you, it may seem cheaper than other school but if you are a grad student who value's their education DO NOT GO HERE! I'm lucky enough to transfer 3 classes in, so I won't be losing out that much as some others who attempt to transfer a year in because other schools will not accept your transfer credits. I'm willing to take a loan to an actual school than go here free of charge. let that sink in!
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
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.
My experience at Keller Graduate School of Management has brought many successes into my life. Both my career and my education have grown since starting. With every class, I try and turn the course project into a related aspect of my current position at work. I was able to formulate new training programs and implement them successfully at work. I was recently recognized by the Director of Talent and development at my company to start a new career path within the field of Human Resources. I have recommended DeVry and Keller to many friends and I have already motivated a close friend of mine to return to school and finish her undergraduate degree. This is a great place to learn and grow both in the classroom and within your career.
Even though it is a for-profit school, my experience at the Federal Way, Washington campus was very challenging and relevant. The professors have advanced degrees and have worked in the actual industry they were teaching. There was a strong willingness to share their knowledge with the students. In one of my classes, I had the opportunity to work on a real project for an actual company. It wasn’t a simulation and involved real funding. The Federal Way campus is small so not all classes were offered on site. I did my Master’s thesis program online. Nonetheless, the expectation was not lowered because of that situation. The thesis was reviewed by and presented to experienced HR professionals. Admission standards are high and the school accepts the GMAT for admission.
I have both positive and negative experiences while attending Keller Graduate School of Management. Keller Graduate School is a business where things are measured by quantitative performance. Like any other school you are just a customer.
Some professors are top notch and others are less than what you would expect. Too many times, I have been the unfortunate member of classes providing the instructors on the job training, instructors who are there for the paycheck, or instructors who are there for their own agenda.
Like the individual stated in other comments. "This is your education!"
