Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2015

I love the program, the faculty and professors go above and beyond for the students. The program has flexibility as on line and on campus classes are offered. The only downside is that the school is not big enough in order to get big companies to come in and recruit students.

Degree: Library Science
Graduation Year: 2015

There are only 2 real options for a MLIS degree in the state of Illinois, and I do believe Dominican has a better program than University of Illinois. The professors really try to get to know you, and you will see familiar faces throughout the program.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2014

This school is well known for the Library Information Science program and therefore has a wonderful reputation. The faculty in this particular school are well-respected and knowledgeable. The campus is beautiful and the surrounding neighborhood where this school resides is upper class and very well maintained. The cons would simply be price. It is a private institution, therefore it is quite expensive, however, the financial aid staff are very helpful.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2014

Dominican has a respected graduate program. However, they are expensive and really don't provide much in the way of scholarships and financial aid. They do offer satellite programs, which is helpful.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

Dominican's MLIS program is first-rate for Illinois residents who do not want to do U of I's online program or go out of state. The professors have a variety of work experience and are available to help at any time. The professors and administration also have many networking links and are willing to help students enter the professional world. I have been very happy with the program thus far.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2014

The faculty of this program are almost always accessible in one form or another, and take a sincere interest in their students education. They treat students with respect and help to facilitate stimulating conversation in class while also providing meaningful assignments and having relevant and knowledgable guest speakers to present on a variety of topics. The program is a bit pricey, but there are reasonable housing options in the area. Also, there are very few social events at this school. But there are several options for transportation, and this school is only 8 or 10 miles from the heart of Chicago.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

This is an excellent program over all. The only things that I would advice any prospective MBA student be cognoscente of are the costs, and the fact that this is a very small school, and therefore the social life aspect of this university is lacking. Other than that though, I think this is a very valuable program with excellent educational value for anyone looking to advance their business careers. The information you learn in these classes are very interesting and are actually applicable to real life. The professors are all top notch in this program, and put the needs of the students first both in terms of what they want to learn, and in assisting all students succeed. Nearly all of my professors answer email immediately, and many even offer additional ways to contact them for immediate assistance if you are having trouble with any of the work. All in all, this school is an affluent, and safe are a mere 30-40 minutes away from Chicago on public transit, with excellent programs, facilities, and staff. I am glad I decided to come to this university and would strongly recommend anyone who likes a small school environment to apply to Dominican University.
