Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2014

I have enjoyed my entire experience at Franklin University. The only difficulty I have had is the time difference as I live in the PNW and the school is located in the East. I am completely online, but love going so much that I have started my Masters program.

Great School but they just raised tuition so it is harder to make the bill and buy books.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2015

At current, I am only entering my second semester of my Marketing and Communications Major, so I won't have much to point out at this time. The first pro I'd like to acknowledge is the tuition cost of the program. At the time of writing, tuition per credit hour for a standard Master's Program is $615. At 40 credit hours total, the total tuition cost for my major is $24,600. This is a very affordable price for a degree, undergrad or grad. Second pro is that the program is very proactive and real-world oriented. While here are elements of marketing ad communications theory that students learn, more emphasis is placed on how these factor into the real world experience and how theory can be put into practice. A third pro I'd acknowledge is that the program conditions students to work in teams, as they would for those on a real job. As an individual who has gone straight from Undergrad to Graduate work, and unfortunately has yet to acquire a full-job, this is a valuable skill to acquire and culminate. At current, the only complaint I have with the program is the mixture of what technologies are used therein. Some courses use the school's social media network to help keep students connected as well as assist with completing assignments, while others rely on networks like Facebook for that interaction. A consensus on what network professors in the program will use in the program would be appreciated.

I feel the amount of work is difficult with working full-time but I believe it is a great program and will benefit me in the long run.

Degree: Business

This school understands that most of its students are working adults. The professors work with you and help you in any way possible.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2013

I think Franklin is a good school; however it is more for those who are already in the field. The school has students learning on their own and not giving students assistance in learning the material.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2014

Franklin University provides diversity and flexibility for student pursuing a Masters in Business Administration. The compassion from professors and the level of participation encouraged creates more opportunities to think outside of the box, and professionally analyze business situations from various perspectives.

Degree: MBA

The program allows you to finish the degree at an accelerated pace. However, like some other comments, be prepared for plenty of homework every week. Still, great school overall with tons of student support whether taking online or in-campus classes.
