Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

Overall I like the program. The course schedule is flexible and works well for adults working full-time. There are several weekend only course options which allow students to attend class in a one or to weekend format. The instructors that I have had were experts in their field, and it showed. There is a heavy focus on practical application of theoretical concepts, which is necessary in any business program. The classes have been challenging; I have gained some invaluable insight. The workload has been very manageable. Career service and assistance with scholarships and alternative funding options could be better. As a graduate student, interaction and networking opportunities are available for those who actively seek it. Good school. Pricey but worth it in my opinion.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2017

The pros of this graduate program is to increase my knowledge of nutrition to educate patients, students, and other educators about nutrition. The program is very successful at training students to research nutrition to treat diseases.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2013

PROs: This program was fabulously interactive, stimulating, and challenging. One quickly learned which students were dedicated to a quality educational experience, and was usually able to interact with those students for a richer and more rewarding student experience. CONS: In the interest of diversity, there were a few unqualified, and/or unmotivated, students in every class who clearly were not working at a beginning graduate level yet were consistently advancing in the program. The university began to incorporate other programs' students who had neither the interest nor the drive to approach courses as a business-major would have approached the assignments/courses.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

Staff is easily accessible. Being an online program, the requirements for classes keep me busy, but still allow for me to work full time and keep my grades elevated. Staff is timely in responding to questions or concerns and posts grades within a timely manner.

Degree: Public Health

The online Graduate program at Benedictine University is a very supportive one. There is much effort in creating a community feel within the program. There is support from interest in the program to day of graduation.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2015

The online MPH program is very competitive at Benedictine, however, I believe that it is a better fit for students who do not work full-time.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2015

I have no complaints about the school nor program. Some of the questions I can not answer because I attend online classes.

Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2014

Benedictine University's offers several Masters programs that accommodate the lifestyle of the full-time worker. The course work is challenging, and a bit overwhelming at times, but that is expected in a Master's program. I have enjoyed my experience thus far and would highly recommend the program to those seeking to further their education. Since it is a private institution, the tuition is a bit costly. I would have appreciated a more robust avenue of financial assistance, as student loans are not what I consider an optimal choice. It is, however a great investment in my future; one that I am willing to fund at 6.7% APR, compliments of our government.
