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.

The pros were that the teachers are very helpful, the workload is manageable and the students are very diverse. The only con is the lack of scholarships available to graduate students to help with tuition costs.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2014

The academics of the BU MBA program and the instructors are great and course work is manageable. However I find it difficult sometimes to find out who does what in administration and it feels as if they don't communicate with each other like they should. Maybe it's just extremely hard for my grad school to fill the shoes of my undergrad school.

Degree: Organizational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2015

One of the best Graduate Programs in Organizational Development that you can take due to the knowledge base of the professors teaching the classes as well as those that have written books that have been hailed as top notch in the OD world.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

The online experience of the MBA program is quite beneficial. As with any program of study, the personal rewards and benefits arise from the individual's level of commitment and involvement. Benedictine requires that students become fully engaged. Consequently, the benefits increase. The online learning environment allows more thoughtful consideration and discussion of case studies among students. Unlike the classroom, you have an opportunity to review comments without a fast-paced discussion. Fellow students reply to each others comments. The instructors and staff are excellent and supportive. The downside to the online program is the live interaction. Yet, the classroom design does not compromise an interactive learning experience.

I love this program! It takes into account the fact that many grad students have full time jobs and the online delivery method is perfect to fit all types of shedules. There is appropriate engagement of the students in the subject matter and I feel as though I am getting a first-rate education in Leadership Studies. I love BenU!
