"It is a great school for adults. The Professors take their time to make sure that you understand the work that they are teaching. The students are the backbone in pushing you to your maximum. Their was times that I wanted to give up but my peers wouldn't let me. Now I made many of friendship. I really hope that this would help you make the right decision to come to Strayer University."

"Strayer has definitely developed my career opportunities at a more advanced level. The master's degree program has been challenging but with outstanding professors and awesome staff, the journey was very pleasant and pain free. I have and will continue to recommend strayer to others."

"I went to Strayer University hoping to get a MBA in business in Downers Grove Illinois. A couple of my professors were pretty cool. The Law Professor was really good. One fellow answered most of the questions, there was like 5 students in the class. One clas we had was almost like grade school, the professor did not prepare for the class, and went around the room calling on every student to answer the question. The Librarian wasnt too nice, if u asked too many questions isnt was like you were bothering her space. Not too friendly place, okay. I wasted close 49,000 dollars which I am not doing anything with that knowledge whatsoever. Yes it would be nice to have my 40,000 back and spend it on something worth while."

"I am an online MBA student and feel that the technology has been very helpful and easy to follow. The books, lectures etc. are relevant and there should be no reason an individual cannot attain a 3.0 or better. I say this having transferred from another online school where the technology and instruction were essentially self-study courses and antiquated systems. On the negative side, I am a bit disappointed at the quality, I hope the school becomes a little discerning at acceptance rates so that the degree has a little more credibility in the business world."
My experience @ Strayer University - 3/8/2017
Graduation Year: 2006
"What I enjoyed most about the school was the fact that many of the teachers were industry professionals. So, I received official lessons *and* the unofficial lessons. I also enjoyed the flexibility. Like anything in life - what you get out of an educational experience will be directly related to what you put into it."

"Strayer University offers an affordable, convenient, quality education. I have seen that people often erroneously state that Strayer University is not accredited. Strayer University is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education. This is the same accrediting body that Georgetown, Johns Hopkins, Columbia and Temple use. *For more info, see the bottom of this post. I started at NVCC, transferred to Strayer, completed by Bachelors degree in Business, and then went on to an MBA. I am very satisfied with my education. I liked the fact that most of my professors actually worked in the filed they were teaching in, and most of the students were already well placed in their fields. This meant the opportunity to get a "real" education in addition to the academics, the chance to mingle with the right people, and the chance to make meaningful industry connections. (In the DC Metro area and in my field, who you know can make a difference.) Like anything else, you get out if it what you put into it. There were some students who skated by & did the minimum, and then there were the hard workers. I was in the second category. I earned my credentials. Financial Aid: I used the GI Bill for my Bachelors degree & student loans for part of my MBA. There may have been a few administrative hiccups, but nothing serious. The financial aid folks @ Strayer were helpful. My agency paid off my student loan. I'm now making six figures. I am currently supplementing my Strayer credentials with a certificate in Risk Management from Stanford University. __________________________________________________ More info about Strayer's accreditation: *Strayer University is regionally accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education. Regional accreditation is granted by one of six U.S. regional accrediting bodies, and represents accreditation for the institutions and all of the programs it offers, across all of its locations. Other institutions accredited by Middle States include Columbia, Princeton, and Penn State. *AACSB and ABET are specialized or programmatic accreditations, often associated with a professional organization. They are optional, although certain institutions do select to pursue them. *AACSB is an optional specialized accreditation for business schools. The AACSB standards are designed to align with the mission of research institutions with an emphasis on faculty scholarship and research. As a University with a mission focused on access, teaching, and the ability to provide instruction from qualified practitioners of business, Strayer University's goals do not align with AACSB's priorities. Only a small proportion of business schools seek and/or are approved for AACSB accreditation. *ABET is an optional specialized accreditation for engineering, applied science, computing, and technology education. Strayer University does not have ABET accreditation, but our IS programs were designed to be consistent with ABET standards (where applicable). ABET is primarily viewed as an accreditation for engineering programs, and as such it does not necessarily fit the mission of Strayer University's programs. *Strayer is licensed through each of the states in which it operates. It is further licensed through the Commonwealth of Virginia to offers its classes and programs online."
