"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."

"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."

"The instructors were very professional and expected a great deal from their students. I was able to work on my degrees while working, which was beneficial. Financial services could be improved, but overall if you work hard enough you will graduate. Maintaining a B average can be trying for some, but what's the point of going to graduate school unless you can put your best into your studies?"

"The master's program is very intense and you need to have strong discipline to succeed in this fast paced 8 week course environment. The students range from a broad spectrum of the extremely intelligent and engaged to the not very interested type. Many students that I have heard that have dropped out have done so because they can not keep up with the work. I do agree with the other reviews that say "you get out of it what you put into it." The professors that I have had are amazing. They have real on the job experience and they have amazing credentials. They demand excellence from their students and have been there for me every step of the way. I did not mark the satisfaction with the degree program at excellent overall because I have had some challenges with the administration staff but it was nothing that we could not resolve. It is a great school for flexibility if you can only afford to go to school only one night a week. As a working professional with children this was the only program in the Sacramento area that catered to my needs. UC Davis and Drexel both require 2 nights per week."

"I just recently graduated, but I'm sure my degree will help me advance on my job. My major was Public Administration and my concentration is Government Management and I have so far 14 years with the State government in Indiana. My experience for the most part was very positive. I will always remember the valuable information I obtained that will be usable in my career as well as my personal life. I will also remember the friends I have gained from this experience."

"Everyone at the school is very helpful...that is if you're just enrolling or thinking about enrolling here. Once you're enrolled no one seems to ever want to help you. Keller and Devry are merging and the Dept of Education is not making distributions. With that being said I would look for another school where the government isn't being hesitant on merging these two schools. You can not get your credit or anytime of loan advancement.The teachers are a joke. You're better off going somewhere locally. Don't waste your time or money."

"This is my third Masters' degree from Keller so obviously I think the school has a worthwile product to offer students. I've been associated with Keller either as an alumni or a student for 13 years. What I'm providing is an honest assesment. The school has positives and negatives. The negatives include the office staff and the caliber of students. If you encounter any type of problem such as scheduling, a billing issue, transcript request, expect a hassle. The office/professional staff are totally incompetent. My tuition was 100% paid for by my company and I still had issues with the finance office. I would receive letters stating my financial aid was revoked and I never even received financial aid. As previous posters suggested, some students simply don't care. Since most of the degree programs are collaborative in nature, this impacts those students who are serious about their education. The positves include the curriculum. I work in technology and I'm able to take course material immediately from the classroom to the workplace. The concept of terminal course objectives easily defines the skills students will obtain after completing the course. During my 13 years of being associated with the school, I only had one professor that didn't have sufficient relevent experience in the subject matter he was teaching. I have three Masters degrees so I easily have had over 30 classes. Despite the few challenged individuals that managed to get a degree, the majority of the student learners are bright and bring valuable insight to classroom discussions. Many of the inviduals I matriculated with are still in my network. All and all, this is a school for people with clearly defined goals. It provides students with fundanmental skills to become business and technology professionals. This is not a research university, it is a school that helps students excel in their place of employment. I have benefited from the practical nature of this education."

"What you get out an any MBA is up to the student, if you put the time, effort and concentration in, you will gain tools, knowledge and insight into the career you are choosing. However I would WARN any student who is considering enrolling in Keller, instead of here look to spend you thousands of hard earned $$ somewhere else. During my program I found that professors will not/can not fail students. I guess this is great for this individual's who don't care about their time, money or quality of educational experience. But for the rest of us that value these things GO SOMEWHERE ELSE. This school is a for-profit business and it is run as such. While the administrative staff and some teachers care and are involved with and care about students, not all do and with Keller closing locations I can not imagine that all their staff is as invested as the individual's that I worked with. Because of Keller's business practices the quality of their degree will be decreasing in the following years, so research all your options before settling on Keller."

"Every instructor I had in technology, information security, and systems management were highly accredited professionals with prestigious organizations that would provide mentorship if asked. The curriculum hobbles the instructors, who must teach from the prescribed materials, but all in all the material really provides the framework for the first class scholarly discussions -- the real source of learning in the masters programs. I am in the military, and the instructors were extremely flexible if I had lenghthy patrols scheduled that would require short absences. Administration, however, needs a lot of work at this school. At campus locations, most employees work without supervision and are student workers that have only a very basic understanding of their duties. The same people that support some technical services are different than other technical services, sometimes resulting in trouble tickets being answered with comments like "not my job, contact your school again so they can tell you whose job it is." Student finance was unhelpful in working through financial aid requirements, saying they only process it, not assist in helping us prepare required documents. My job placement advisor would send me announcements advertising for a dentist or a warehouse stock person, even though my degree was in information systems security. Job placement services were so distracting, I had to make several attempts to get them to stop sending me spam job announcements. For education, Keller is top notch, and the online professors I found even more competent than some of the brick-and-mortar institutions I attended. Have an administrative problem though, and expect some consternation. This university is for a go getter student, if you are lazy and can't overcome minor set backs, Keller is not for you."

"I attend Keller at the Philadelphia campus and I've had a mix of experiences. Financial aid at the campus is awful. My "conusltant" doesn't consult. He e-mails me days, sometimes weeks, after I ask a question and never answers his phone. I leave messages but they never get returned. I won't use his name because that's mean but he's terrible.The "coach" there is really nice. She helps answer all of my questions and in a very timely manner. When I have issues with getting in touch with financial aid guy she helps me quickly and always gets the answers I need. She is my consultant and my coach.Keller has some good instructors but not all so I urge you to be careful. Online options are okay but some classes should be taken at the school. Overall, I'd recommend the school at Philadelphia. I can't wait to graduate this year!"

"Keller seems to pick up their online instructors wherever they can find them. I have been enrolled in ten classes, and eight of them had very lazy and/or incompetent instructors who did the bare minimum. I get the distinct impression that these instructors are using their Keller jobs as a source of supplemental income. They simply have not contributed to the learning process. My current instructor is very condescending, arrogant, and lazy. Only after grading assignments does he provide the grading criteria. He marks up the papers indicating what he was looking for. He is very subjective. He is also intransigent and refuses to reconsider any grades that he has already assigned.Another unfortunate fact with Keller-online is that there is no single point of contact assigned as your personal student adviser. Instead, when you call student resources, you get whoever is on duty, and they type up your questions / concerns. If a follow-up is involved, you won't get the same person contacting you. Translated: runaround. No one seems to care."

"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."
