"Webster does not care about students. They will tell you about their classes are all in resident. That includes their terrible WEB-EX online. They only offer some courses once a year so you a pigeon hold once you start. Do not waste your time! My bachelors was more challenging than Webster. Dont let them fool you in telling you how great it is. Community Colleges Are More Legit!"

Satisfied with Webster - 4/4/2018

Graduation Year: 2016
"The degree programs are anything but self study. Webster University uses the Concourse Syllabus Manager program so that students can preview an approved syllabus before enrolling that outlines assignments, grading criteria, course deliverables and course policies. The course rotation schedule was deep and broad based on my experience at Webster, offering core courses and electives in both my major and related disciplines. The professors that I had provided me with a perfect blend of theory with applied practice across the degree program."

"Outstanding experience taking courses at the four Webster campuses in the St. Louis area. The degree program covered areas such as Management, Human Resources Management, Strategic Management, Organizational Development, Managerial Leadership, Organizational Behavior, Finance and a Capstone course in addition to four electives of my choice. I found good networking opportunities with my peers, who came from BJC Health, Boeing, Anheuser Busch, Emerson Electric, Worldwide Technology, Ameren U/E, and other walks of life, through sharing real-world experiences and best practices as class discussions were focused on applied management and leadership situations. It's a graduate degree and I logged in plenty of time creating presentations, analyzing case studies, writing essays, doing primary and secondary research, and even using spreadsheets in the Finance class to analyze which companies had optimal capital structures and were better investments. You get what you put into it - work hard, keep your eye on the prize (and tune out the quitters who give up, anyone can do that). Webster shines in the areas of applied education. The instructors that I had were passionate about teaching, highly qualified both personally and academically and I can't say enough positive things about how much the Webster University experience has helped me professionally and personally in becoming a better manager, leader and change agent."

"This is the worst university that I have every attended. Organizational culture is poorly developed, unprofessional financial aid and academic advising departments. Every process, every year was explained wrong, then it took multiple phone calls and tedious processes to fix the things that were never explained. This university lacks diversity, Corporate location is in St. Louis, that should have been a red flag for me, personally. Rude, unprofessional staff members who lack customer service and customer focus skills. Good professors, a great head of department leader in academic advising. Extensive turn around times for documentations. Redundant curriculum, every class is the same theories, I don't think I learned anything that I didn't learn in undergraduate studies. I should have went to a better school for my time, money and investment, I didn't learn much of anything, besides how rude the staff is. I give this school a 2."

"Webster University was a great college especially for the working adult. I had amazing opportunities with the faculty who made lasting impressions on my career and have become lifelong friends and mentors. I would highly recommend this University. I stay in contact with many of my professors to give feedback on different aspects that helped and topics that I've encountered that could help future students. One of my favorite professors was Edward Lott who taught my managerial leadership class. His teaching style was fun and always very organized. Each 4 hour class was incredibly engaging and he had a realistic way to bring the coursework into our professional lives."

"After looking at what the market had to offer here in St. Louis, I chose to get my Masters Degree in Management and Leadership at Webster in 2006 because I already had a B.S.B.A. in Accounting from SLU and an MBA would be an expansion to what I had already learned - Management and Leadership was the best field of study for me; as a newly minted Division Vice President for a Fortune 500 company I needed to develop my softer skills of influencing my team to adapt to a changing market. My advice would be to choose wisely by reading Rate My Professor and asking other students about their experience with excellent professors. Webster's core strength lies in a balance of academic professors who know theory and consult to adjuncts who can immerse you with learning experiences to help you drive results in the real world. I had a strategy professor who changed my life there: I took what he taught me and used it to gain a promotion when I was in a roundtable with the CEO of our company. Webster teaches you to lead from your own chair."

This not grad school, this is a joke - 11/3/2016
Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2016
"This is not graduate level learning. I had more academic rigor in the classes I took in high school. One of my instructors shows up 30+ minutes late, if at all and talks about his personal life the entire time. If you want to get an actual graduate degree that is respected and actually learn something then go to a real school. If you want to pay 10 grand and get a degree out of a Cracker Jack box then this school is for you."

Soon-To-Be-Webster Grad - 10/4/2016

"I disagree with most of the posts here. My experience at Webster was outstanding. I already have an MBA from the University of California, Irvine and decided to pursue the master's in Procurement and Acquisitions Management. The program was very good. I found it to be similar in academic rigor and quality of education from my MBA program which is a top 50 MBA school. I mixed my program up by taking 3/4 of the classes in residence and the other quarter of my classes online. Both experiences were good. Watch out for fake universities that are for-profit like University of Phoenix. These institutions are out only to raise their shares on the stock market in the pursuit of profit and money. No educational institution should be based on this principle since universities should always be in pursuit of higher education and research."

"I disagree with most of the comments on these reviews. I had a great experience at Webster. I took classes at a satellite campus in Colorado, as well as online. My M.A. in Management and Leadership taught me principles I use every day in my military profession."

"I had been working in my field for about 7 years and I decided if I wanted to get ahead I needed to get an advanced degree. I didn't want to do the online thing and Webster happen to have a campus close to my home with a major that I was interested in. I didn't fit the typical mold of a person getting a degree from this university. Almost everyone else in my program was either a member of the military or a civilan employee. There were a few contractors who did work for the air force, but I think I was the only one who was employeed in the private industry. I mostly chose Webster university because of the program, tution and closeness of the campus to my home. I have heard a few people bad mouth Webster and say it is a diploma mill. But nothing could be further from the truth and I think those type of reviews are from people who took out mega loans and either didn't graduate or just failed out of their classes. They want something without working hard for it. To me, it was hard, but some of the instructors seemed to be too military focused and it was probably because of where there background was at. Although, given the background of most the students in my classes, it was probably appropriate. I was still pleased with the school and felt I got my moneys worth. Am I glad I got my degree at Webster? Yes sir! The tution was much less at Webster than I found at other Universites, the quality of education was good, and I was able to take classes at night instead of during the day when I needed to be at work. They also had a brick and mortor campus within a reasonable distance of my home. Within 3 months of graduating I got a job with a fortune 100 company making over 6 figures. Would I do it again? Absolutely. I think it is what you make of it."
