Student & Graduate Reviews

2.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2015

I feel that I have learned a lot from the courses I have taken in my graduate program, but I feel that the on-campus staff and various departments are very unorganized and not at a graduate level of productivity. I hope that my future classes and experiences prove my thoughts in a more positive manner.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

From my point of view there is no con to my graduate program. Since I have been in the MBA Program, I have been entertained by numerous future job offers. I made a great decision.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros: Concordia does a nice job and changing its curriculum to stay on top of latest trends in the area of educational administration. Cons: Not all of the professors communicate as regularly as I would expect. There are some dandies, but there are definitely some duds.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

A Pro of my graduate program is that I truly get the opportunity to see how big business works and its functions and how it applies to the real world. It is truly an eye opening experience. The Con is you see as it relates to people that you are at the mercy of the individual in charge and how this person relates to his fellow co workers and employees. From a political perspective which is my back ground this is very interesting. I see many solutions that I can apply in helping others all the way around.

3.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2016

Some aspects I cannot comment on because I do not live on campus or even in the same state as the University so I do not know. As far as the faculty and the staff and their willingness to provide support to distance learning students is AMAZING! Prior to even being accepted I felt "accepted". They work well together to accommodate their students and help them get on track and accustomed to their classes and workload. Overall, the school is amazing and I am glad to be a CONCHI student! =)

4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Instructional Technology
Graduation Year: 2015

I really enjoy the helpful staff at the university. After graduating high school and going to get my undergraduate degree, I received help from my parents when applying and paying for school. Now that I am doing this on my own, I really needed some support. I feel the staff of Concordia helped me tremendously as far as answering questions through e-mail within an hour or two. I am very appreciative of the help!
