Jared 1/22/2021

Easy to work with a busy military schedule, and tuition assistance friendly. Attendance recommended but not required for the weekly seminars, but the work is still required via a second option. In addition the workload each week is definitely manageable with my busy ever changing schedule. Even while overseas it worked well.

Hayley Baldwin 1/19/2021

Purdue University Global made it very easy to go to school while being a working professional. Expectations were clearly defined and all professors were very accommodating and willing to work through like challenges, especially with Covid-19 and all of the other joys 2020 brought us. I would 100% recommend this program to others and may even come back for a Doctorate in the future.
