Student & Graduate Reviews

4.6 out of 5.0
Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2018

My experience with Davenport has been outstanding. My advisor has gone above and beyond to support me as an older student who works FT and is raising children to boot. My Professors are experienced professionals who have experience conducting research and working in the field. My peers are a mix of colleagues and people new to the profession, and are a wide variety of ages and abilities. I feel that I have received a well-rounded education that has truly prepared me to do the best work of my career.

4.4 out of 5.0
Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2012

Higher education is extremely important in the workforce today. Having a degree sets you apart from other applicants, shows initiative and drive, and is the standard in business. Several people in our company are not using their actual degree plan, but everyone in our office has at least a four year degree.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2007

I loved the flexibility to take classes in seat or online. I also loved that the professors were actual business people who were out working in the real world.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2019

The academic advisors are extremely helpful. The campus is new and clean. The dorms are a little expensive, but there are plenty of other options. You need a car to get around the city or to-and -from school. The teachers are very invested in their students and want them to succeed. The program is new but is accredited.

Degree: MBA in Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2019

Pursuing Davenport Universitys Healthcare MBA program or an MBA program was not part of my plan. I was a Medical Degree candidate at Univ. South Florida Morsani College of Medicine (USF MCOM) However, due to twist and turns of life, I had to transfer my Year I and II completed at USF MCOM to an offshore program that had an affiliation with MBA program. To help with financial needs at a foreign medical school that is not eligible for Title IV loans; I decided to tap into my family profession, i.e. business, which has been one of the most fulfilling pursuits based on underlying circumstances. I am in an online program; hence it is self-directed instruction. However, the professors ensure that you are meeting the deadlines, going in the right direction and chose the right textbooks and software programs accompanying the books. The selected book and Cengage or MindTap learning accompanying the textbooks is similar to Professor instruction; however, the only benefit is you can work around to complete the education at your pace. Similar to many online programs, which have become a backdoor for students who are trying to work, attend dual degrees or raise a family in the midst of the economic recession; the ultimate challenge is to be in-charge of your education. It is not similar to the traditional learning because we do not have face to face contact with professors and peers that help us stay motivated. Hence, joining member-at-large online honor societies, business networking groups enables a student to make the necessary connections to be ready for the competitive job market.

Extensive learning from real life professionals
2.8 out of 5.0
Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

Davenport University is a great college to go to. It has wonderful teachers that will sit down and teach from real world experiences. However, when taking classes online it is difficult to understand that and you lose experience. I certainly did and it was until I stepped into a class room with 6 months left to my degree that I lost so much opportunity that was there. My advice is to sit in a classroom and engage your mind int what you are learning. It is more powerful than having Google do your homework 80% of the time.

Pro: The graduate programs are updated and tailored to meet the needs of students and the businesses in which they will work. Con: The price of tuition is horrible.
