Nova Southeastern University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (22)
I am very pleased with my five years attending NSU's EdD program. Not only are the faculty superb professionals, they truly cared about each doctoral learner as a person! My current Chair is a wonderful educator who provides sound guidance blended with lots of enthusiasm for me to complete my dissertation's last two chapters. I have helped three friends matriculate into the EdD program and yes they still speak to me. :-) My only challenge is with certain members of traditional academia with PhD's who admit to a bias against hiring EdD degree holders. Go check out NSU and their terrific campus in Fort Lauderdale.
I have had no issues with Nova. My academic advisor was the best from day 1. She followed up in a timely manner to all calls and emails. Professors were professional. All of their contact information including office , home, and cell numbers. Only one professor posed a problem but for the most part, everything was good.
Nova Southeastern University does a wonderful for working adults. The school prides itself in seeing everyone complete what they started. Assistance from financial Aid Office, Student Services, Advisors, and your assigned chairperson for you doctoral degree have all been exceptional.
I love Nova Southeastern University. First of all the campus is just so beautiful. I also believe that students receive a quality education for at this institution. The student-to-faculty ratio is low and the staff and administration are very helpful with the students. I feel a strong sense of community there and would recommend this university to anyone. The only downside about the university may be expensive tuition.
For all the hype that this school gets, it doesn't live up to it's name. Nova is very overpriced and the curriculum that it offers is ridiculous. Professors were never available and they always had an attitude when I tried to reach out to them. Will be transferring for next semester. Don't waste your money and risk going into debt, in order to attend this university. There are other universities that are even more qualified and less expensive than this one to attend, and can provide you with a better education.
I had a great experience at NOVA. The coursework was challenging! Everything ran smooth and I completed my Masters in a Year. The professors were very helpful and approachable. My interactions with them were very professional and informative. Also, the admissions process was very smooth. That was one of the reasons I chose this university.
I liked it. Smaller classrooms than my previous university so I felt there was more involvement with other students and teachers.
I have been working on my degree for 7 years. Although the courses were challenging, I found the faculty to be unapproachable and lacking in their ability to support student success. The dissertation process has been a nightmare for me. No support from my chair or members. Also they change the program completion requirements every year!! The price per credit is extremely high and it is increased yearly. I am in the process of evaluating my options since I cannot transfer my credits to other PhD programs but cannot afford to keep giving them my money with no end in sight. I would not recommend this program.
Online program has a lot of technical issues with people being knocked out of the virtual classrooms with no other review materials Classes do not have recorded lectures and teachers forget to record lectures there is no way to review. I feel I wasted money here and transferred to new university after two semesters of bad technical issues very expensive school to have so many problems
There is no problem with the College of Business Education. The professors are qualified and maybe more qualified than faculty at some other universities. In the doctoral program the quality of fellow students for the most part is really quite high. Many students in the doctoral program are older than average doctoral students and have already reached a level of professional success that other university doctoral graduates may never obtain. The issue at Nova Southeastern University has a very poor reputation with older academicians. I can't tell you the number of people in academia who think Nova Southeastern COB is an online program. It is not the case, though I have to deal with the perception all the time. The Nova Southeastern University College of Business needs to beef up the doctoral student instruction and requirements for publishing before you finish the program. Many top tier University PhD programs possess an advantage in the academic job market because they have more work published by the time they graduate. At the time I graduated, the COB does practically nothing to place its graduates in academia (or anywhere else).
