Keller Graduate School of Management Reviews
Browse Reviews by Popular Programs:
Keller is a JOKE. I recently decided to go back to school after a long hiatus to complete my MBA that I had started with them in 2007 and never finished. Lo and behold I find out after one semester back in school that I was actually on academic probation and to be removed from probation I had to get a certain G.P.A. which was IMPOSSIBLE to achieve since the one class they let me take was a pass/fail course.
After explaining my story to the "counselor" I was told to document why I didn't finish the first time, turn in supporting documentation and I'd be fine. Not such a huge thing but the reason I didn't finish the first time was because I was busy at life and small children etc. How the heck do you document life?
So I write the memo, turn it in and get told that it was disapproved because I didn't raise my GPA enough ... we go back to the first part of it was a PASS/FAIL class and they wouldn't let me take anything else. Keller will take your money then dismiss you or expect you to meet impossible standards.
My degree with DeVry, Keller Graduate has been an administrative nightmare. Getting basic questions answered by administration is like jumping through hoops and dealing with ignorant temporary workers.
As well, the curriculum does not match its price tag. The professors in many cases were half witted lazy inefficient check collectors. I can name 6 classes that I have taken where the Professors did nothing but read from a PowerPoint.
Also, follow up of graded assignments was extremely difficult. You expect that if your paying $2280 per class that you would get USC, UCLA, or an ivy league school education. Well that is a fallacy.
I am not sure how other campuses are ran but I would definitely not suggest you attending Pomona, CA Keller Graduate program.
I have taken a number of classes online from Keller and I can say that like any school you only get out of it what you put in. I would recommend Keller for someone like me that needs to take online classes due to the amount of international travel that I do. I also have 20 years of working experience and I am not looking for a job. I really went back to school to get my MBA as more of an insurance policy and to learn more. I think Keller provides the right tools and instructors to learn. I have also enjoyed the classmates in each course, each from different industries and backgrounds.
Ended up quitting. This place was the bane of my existence. Tried transferring after 1 year, and a real university would only take 2-3 of those courses I took. Student services is a joke. I never got a call back from my "student success coach", my first one quit, and the dean was kind of a dink. They will rob you blind at this school. I suggest you stay away.
Stay away from this school. Their admin is pathetic. Their instructors are non-responsive. The only people who respond are the survey folks, and they won't leave you alone.
I have had multiple issues. I've been registered for classes I didn't ask for. I've been billed directly when there was student aid. I've been sent bills when the bill has already been paid. I was in a course where the instru...ctor didn't say anything for 3 weeks (in an 8 week course.)
I've had instructors take 4 weeks to grade homework or respond to questions (again, an 8 week course.) Most recently I was told I would have an e-book for a class, but lo-and-behold, when class started only hard-copies are available. Thus I have to wait for the bookstore to ship the books (I'm an online student). I get to start the class a week behind because these people don't know what they are doing.
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.
At first, my experience at DeVry was pleasant. The recruiter was honest, and she worked very hard for me, to ensure my issues were resolved quickly. The fact that I had so many issues should have been a red flag for me. They continued throughout my entire program.
I took all of my classes online, which was very good for me, with a busy work and life schedule; however the resources available to online students are not up to University standards. I had many problems with my transferred credits, and I was hassled for payment, even though I was paying on time, and more than the minimum (out of pocket).
The biggest problem occurred when I was placed in a course for which I had not taken the prerequisite course - this resulted in much frustration on my part, not being able to understand the material. Eventually, DeVry dropped me from the course, in the seventh week (courses run 8 weeks), just before the Final exam was due. One good note for DeVry would be that they did apply the money paid for the course, so I didn't have to pay to take it twice, since it was their mistake placing me in the first place.
If you are looking for a school which will support your needs, and cause you little stress, avoid DeVry University.
Keller is the graduate school of DeVry University. I have been enrolled in Keller's Masters in Information Systems Management program for six months now, and couldn't be more pleased with the education I am recieving.
I am a veteran of the US Navy and online learning (My BBA was achieved online), and I can say that Keller not only brings quality professors to the table (65% are terminal degree holders - higher percentage than most online schools), but innovate with the latest methods of online delivery of content.
The class shell can be abit confusing at times, but it devivers chat, online librarys, document exchange systems, even free software from Microsoft! They use the MyScribe system for delivering digital textbooks. What a hassle free environment that is! No more shopping for textbook ISBNs or waiting for delivery. I just enroll in a class, and the digital textbooks are downloaded to my PC! I can also say that I find myself challenged in every class.
I also love the fact that Keller has brick & mortar campuses which allow me to enroll in blended learning classes as well as online only. I use my GI Bill benefit and Keller's student services bills the VA directly, all I have to do is bring home the good grades. My experience with Keller graduate school has been an excellent one and I recommend them.
Totally disappointed. I completed two Masters in Keller, the MBA and the MFAM. Just at the beginning was worth it for the customer service and the teacher but as the time passed its been one of the most terrible experiences.
Customer Service is terrible, actually no service at all. They change a lot the people working with them in the Miami campus, reason why is extremely difficult to be able to provide continuity to a case.
The Dean in Miami is the most irresponsible person in the world, does not respond emails, don’t care about anything and just keep voiding all situations.
In order to take my CPA Becker Classes with them was a mission because they did not want to recognize the credits at the beginning and a group of students had to contacted by email almost the president to be able to enter in the program and receive the credits. I also requested a revision in my grades in one class, almost 2 years ago, when I started, and I am still waiting for a response after tons of emails to the Dean.
Finally the college made a mistake and did not include a class that I took on my current loans at the time and after almost a year fighting and trying to find out what happened they admitted the mistake, just release my transcripts to be able to sit for the CPA exam BUT are holding my second Diploma because "I have a balance" that I need to pay.
It’s just ridiculous.... I’m transferring to another college just to complete the 6 credits that I am still missing for my CPA exam. It’s just a nightmare.
This school was acceptable at first. The instructors will helpful and informative. After my first semester studying for my M.S. Project Mgmt, I recieved and A and a B+. That then calculated my GPA to 1.65! THat is not a 1.65 at all. This pissed me off and they still haven ot fixed it since June 2010. Here it is Ocotber 2010 and they still have not fixed it. They are horrible. I am a military vet and I am upset.
