I completed the Webster University MET completely online. Overall, my experience with Webster University was positive. First I had an exceptional advisor that worked with me throughout the program. Once I was accepted he asked me how many classes I wanted to take per semester--after that I was enrolled every semester for my required classes. He responded to questions quickly, provided great advice, and genuinely seemed interested in me as a person and student. As for the Professors during the courses, the majority were excellent. They were quick to respond with answers to questions, provided an acceptable turnaround time on grades, and again seemed interested in being part of my personal and professional growth. The course ended with a Capstone project with the requirement to create a Digital Portfolio. I would this "okay". The best piece of advice I can give to anyone looking at this program is to save every assignment and review provided by your professors. I did this and I will be honest, the Capstone was simple--a lot of copy and paste. I understand that this is something that I can use to showcase my experience at Webster, but I don't feel in the end it was "Master Level" work. Lastly, I attended the local graduation ceremony. There were a total of about 60 people that graduated and for a satellite location, Webster did the a wonderful job. What impressed me most was the President of Webster, Dr. Stroble, attended the ceremony.
This is a self-study degree with minimal input from instructors. The course catalog has many courses listed but many courses are no longer offered or not offered online. The course content or agendas (exams, papers, projects, textbooks plus other online reading materials) are not known until already enrolled and the first day or class or later.
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 did my research before applying to business school, and I am very pleased that I went with Webster University. The 1-year accelerated MBA program was a big challenge. The university ensured the same curriculum in the regular MBA program mirrored the 1-year program, as it should. Classes ran one right after the other, and there was only a two week break over the Christmas holiday, but I'm very happy with my experience. My cohort classmates were successful working professionals and offered a great conversation throughout the entire 1-year program. My instructors were knowledgeable, responsive, professional and inspiring. The curriculum was challenging but applicable to the every day corporate world, which was extremely important to me. I have been working for 8 years, and didn't want to enroll in a program with students who just earned their bachelor's and were just rolling into their next degree program. Not that this is a problem, it just wasn't the academic environment I wanted while earning my MBA. I really enjoyed the way Webster's curriculum encouraged students to discuss experiences, study them and then apply course material to make them better in the future. For me, the Statistics and Corporate Finance courses were the most challenging, but my instructors were great about answering questions and supplying examples to help me out, not to mention many students used the online messaging to work together on homework questions. I would highly recommend Webster University's MBA program.
I became a Webster University Student in the fall of 2011 since then I have slightly adjusted to the way things go on campus here. Even though I am a non-traditional students I have found resources that are available to people such as myself. I enjoy the cirriculum here and for the most part the instructors I have had the pleasure to meet are very professional and indept. I would reccommend Webster University to students who are serious about making a difference in their live and the lives of others.
Webster University is not the only university/college I've had the opportunity to attend, and I can say with a great deal of sincerity and confidence that it is by far the best institution I've experienced thus far.
I believe if you really want to succeed, you can here at Webster. The faculty here is top notch and they really care about their students and their student’s success. It shows in the amount of time they give in the classroom and outside of the classroom. I haven't had an instructor that was unavailable to me for additional assistance or questions; as a matter of fact they encourage it!
And while Webster University is more expensive I believe its well worth it. I don't feel like just a number here. I have a name and a voice. I believe that when I've accomplished my goal of obtaining a degree here at Webster I will have everything, and I do mean everything I need to be competitive in the field of Computer Science and do well. I know this may sound like a commercial for Webster, however until one has experienced the commitment to excellence and care they have here it's hard to express without sounding a little cheesy.
The class sizes are great here too. I remember being a senior graduating from high school and being concerned about sitting in this coliseum like class room and being expected to learn anything. No longer Tracy but student 117 out of 150. That's definitely not the issue here. The classes are manageable for both the instructor and the student.
If someone was interested I would tell them to schedule a day here. I would tell them not to take my word for it, but to experience the Webster University difference for themselves. In the end make the choice best for you and your educational goals because at the end you're stuck with the bill.
