Student & Graduate Reviews

"The online program for Business Intelligence was complete garbage. There are plenty of mass open online courses (MOOCs), Youtube videos, etc. that would have offered the same, probably better instruction for free. I had professors that had no idea about the content of the courses (we'd report problems they didn't know existed). It was a complete theft of money in my opinion. I just paid $300 for dropping a course in the first 4 days due to giving it one last shot and determining the course was going to be much of the same. Please, do not waste your money!"

Degree: MBA in Finance
Graduation Year: 2017
"As a working professional and parent, Keller was the only choice for me. It offered flexibility and a pace that worked for my busy and demanding schedule. What I learned about Keller is that you will get out of it what you put into it. I was quite impressed with the professors. I learned a lot about Finance and with this knowledge I received a new job with a 30 percent increase in pay. The school is accredited and an MBA after your name is something to be proud of. It is not an easy program and you will be challenged but worth it is worth it in my opinion."

"This degree is not respected and not worth the cost. I omit the degree from my resume because of the disrespect the degree receives in the financial industry. This school should not be accredited and should not allow for federal funding. DeVry was bad Keller of DeVry IS WORSE."
KELLER RIP OFF - 8/3/2017
Graduation Year: 2006
"I would stay as far away from this 'university' as it is possible to be. Unless you are an executive padding your resume, you are essentially paying for resume writing services. Keller has no business connections, the career fairs that they host are an absolute joke, and the 'career services department' and the counselor provide no practical or even theoretical advice. I have gone to career fairs where representatives from companies in attendance were emphatic about the fact that they were not going to hire any of the Keller grads. I inquired as to why they would even show up, if that were the case. Two separate individuals conveyed that Keller solicits the companies with no intention of graduates getting jobs. It's all part of the show. In closing, consider this: 1. MBA completed in 2 years 2. $80,000 in student loans 3. No job in the field, no assistance, and no career services department. Incidentally, Career Services has gotten much more interested in contacting me, since the 100 million Devry settlement. I have gotten several emails pertaining to how to get government jobs and such. Interestingly enough, it's still just resume suggestions. Nothing tangible. How does the federal government (The FTC) punish the undergraduate component (Devry) and ignore the other culprit (Keller) of a university?"

"Got a great job and learned a lot at Keller. I did not take any online classes although they offered them. At that time my company would not pay for on line education. The price I thought was reasonable in nature. This degree did give me the carrier edge I was looking for."

Degree: Marketing - Market Research
Graduation Year: 2000
"I've seen a lot of positive and negative thoughts about Keller Graduate School of Management but I thoroughly enjoyed my time there. I went from 1998 - 2000 and took 1/4 of my classes online so I was able to experience both the in-person setting and the online setting. I didn't go into this assuming I would get a high paying job or any support, and I didn't look at career service offerings at the time, so I can't speak to how helpful they might have been. I found a new job within a month of finishing my M.B.A. with a 40%+ pay increase from the low $30k's to low $50k range and I was more than satisfied with that. I researched other Chicago area grad schools in the area and what I preferred about Keller was the inexpensive price + the fact that they ran 5 terms a year (10 weeks each). Most schools did 2 semesters only, which meant I could take up to 4 years to graduate since I also worked full time and could only take up to 2 classes at a time. Keller allowed me to graduate in 2 years and 1 term, and still take summers off. That flexibility was worth so much. I graduated with $30k in student loans, but that's reasonable given the times and less than if I had gone almost anywhere else."

Degree: Project Management
Graduation Year: 2009
"Devry/Keller is all about money. I did get a good education at Keller, but it is just not a very well respected school because of the for profit deal. Most of my online classes were very demanding and required a lot of effort to get a good grade. Hands on experience lands the job; not a quality education. The Finance Team at Devry really took me to the cleaners with school loans. Bottom Line - Don't go to Devry/Keller. Pick a non-profit universality with a good reputation,."
MBA Grad - 5/31/2017
Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2017
"I just finished my MBA at Keller Graduate School of management over the course of 8 years part time while having a full time job and 3 kids. I only took a couple classes a year and eventually finished with a MBA with a concentration in project management. Keller isn't perfect, but it is pretty good. it is affordable and flexible for your schedule as a working adult with a job and family. The professors are surprisingly good. The online content could use some improvement but it is expensive to update this type of online curriculum on a constant basis while keeping tuition affordable. I recommend taking classes in person at a local Chicago campus. To vouch for the quality of the professors, all of the project management classes used PMI curriculum. The PMBOK 5th edition was the text book. After finishing 4 elective concentration courses in project management I did additional self study and took the PMP exam and passed on my first attempt without any boot camps or any other supplements. The classes DID teach you what you need to be successful. Now I'm a MBA with a PMP certification from an arguably budget "for profit" school. My conclusion is that it was a good value and got what I wanted out of it."

"Keller was a great school and it certainly enhanced my career. I am a IT Program Manager of over 40 personnel and it has increased my ability to lead these technicians with confidence. The school was perfect for what I needed and the instructors were very knowledgeable. I feel like I got the education that I was looking for. There were no surprises. I am a Veteran and going to Keller was perfect for me and my situation. I highly recommend Keller, however if you are looking for someone to hand you a degree then look elsewhere. You will have to work for it at this school."

"Devry is a predatory for-profit business looking to steal your money with no regard for the student at all. Below is a snippet from one of the many letters I had to write to them requesting they return the funds they fraudulently obtained. Please note my original complaint began on December 13th, 2016 when I contacted the Tinley Park Campus and voiced my concern with the VA certifying official. I questioned why I was withdrawn from 2016 FIN560 without my knowledge or consent and stated that my participation was constant throughout the entire 2016 FIN560. I explained that I was not made aware of any such requirements or was I contacted by any officials notifying me of my pending automatic drop. I was later referred to Student Central Manager who told me that I was dropped due to lack of participation and that the system automatically drops students after 7 days. Ultimately she referred me to the Keller Catalog as an unsatisfactory resolution to the issue. Ironically, I was automatically enrolled in following courses again without my consent or knowledge however I was made aware of my lack of participation, attendance, etc. for this course which prompted me quickly resolve Devrys mistake. After many failed attempts to resolve this amicably I filled a student complain form on February 13th, 2017 with The Student Central Manager."
