"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)."

"I completed all course work in the program. When I went to write my dissertation. When he did finally reply to my second request for communication, he basically told me to go away. I was not supported by the Dean, who took 9 weeks and two messages to reply, or by the Vice President of Student Affairs, who promised to get back to me after his investigation, but never did. The faculty member did not follow the rules as they were described in the Dissertation Guide or the Graduate Catalog and no one at Nova seemed to mind that."

"My experience at Nova South Eastern has been excellent. The Professors are approachable, consistent, they follow-up with student concerns and questions. Generally all staff at Nova South Eastern, displayed good customer service practice. During my academic studies at Nova South Eastern I took ill with Cancer, and was not able to find any resources available to assist with the financial aide aspect, after taking a leave of absence. My studies were placed on hold due to an outstanding debt of 5,000 for classes I did not attend. I inherited a debt, which was acrued due to a mis communication with class withdrawals. Although my overall experience with NMova was great, I see a need for the school to provide better directions for those students that take ill with terminal illness."
