Keller Graduate School of Management Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (56)
Please Do not attend this school unless you want to be over charged, uncared for, and taken advantage of. Not to mention they Break laws about pertaining to your loan services and do not care to fix mistakes on their part. I have been waiting to have Keller refund my money for months and no one seems to care even call me back when asked. They keep telling me they are working diligently on my issue, but yet it has been a month. Legal a university has to disburse any remaining funds to a student within 10 business days by law. No wonder why the school is getting sued. Beware
As a student in their 40's returning for a Grad degree after working for 20+ years and trying both state, community, and private schools - I can say that the DeVry/Keller structure and tools are the best I have seen. If you want a real life degree that prepares you to go to work the next day and use what you've learned, then this is the place for you. If you want to learn how to be a professional researcher and paper writer, then jump through the hoops and go to a state school or other school with a high price tag so you can become a part of academia. I am kicking myself for spending time and money buying into the prestige of the upper tier schools only to have wasted it. No one prepares you for work like the DeVry/Keller way of teaching.
The courses were very challenging and guided to prepare each student for success. The professors are extremely knowledgeable and provide guidance with the up-to-date business trends The advisors are always ready to provide the best curriculum selection guidance and facilitate the navigation through the completion of the degree.
Keller provide me confidence to go back to school and complete my 1st MBA. In January 2016 I started working on my 2nd MBA in Human Resources. The professors are great with working with the student. All Keller staff members go above and beyond their jobs duties to assist the students.
When I thought higher education was out of my reach, Devry University and it's Keller Graduate school online program made it all possible. Throughout my tenure at these institutions, I've encountered many helpful, insightful and knowledgeable professors who were always wiling to reach out and support the students in their learning. It was a remarkable experience; one that I will treasure as I continue in my professional life. This experience has certainly shaped me into the professional I am today. I am honored to be an alumni of Devry University and Keller Graduate School of Business; and would greatly recommend them to anyone seeking to earn a higher education.
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.
In my opinion the classes were very well thought out and insightful however, trying to get a job fresh out of college has been a very difficult battle. You see when I went in I had no experience and went in on loans and grants while trying to get work which never happened for various reasons all surrounding my lack of experience, so quite naturally when I graduated I felt cheated in a way because I was not ready for the business world. Most jobs require you to have a year of experience but with what I have that was never going to happen and this has been going on since 2012 and still is the case now as I write this in the tail end of 2015 so yeah. To say that college is not worth it would be a lie as I have learned things that I will always remember as they have improved me as a person yet I just wish I could finally take the stage as I was meant to. Keller is a great school were it often feels like a high school versus a traditional college because the size and atmosphere or at least the one in Columbus did. As I said the classes at least the online ones were insightful and engaging just not enough meat if you know what I mean. I am one who would have wanted onsite hands on classes if they were offered but they were not. In hindsight I really should have left the school when I was attending the sister school DeVry University as it was the same way and now I see where DeVry is being sued for various problems dealing with this very matter, so if I were you I would think twice before going to either school as I am still unemployed with no experience outside of my college 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.
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.
Keller's MBA program is ideal for working professionals. I'm a traveling sales director and found the ability to study and take tests online the perfect way to learn MBA Curriculum at a flexible schedule. I loved being able to network with Olympians and professionals working in a variety of industries from all over the world.
