Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2020

I cannot recommend Northwestern enough. The university is truly exceptional, beginning with the application process. I was contacted to clarify aspects of my application and ensure that all supporting documents were included before submitting it to the reviewers. Following acceptance, responses concerning financial aid and online access were always quick, professional, and helpful. The courses are taught by experienced and prestigious faculty, and the amount I have learned in just a few months is incredible.

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2017

It was a great program. It helped me learn much about public policy and the legislative process. Prior to enrolling in this program, I wanted to go to law school. However, I ended realizing that what I really wanted to do could be achieved with a public policy masters. I don't regret it, and I highly recommend it!

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2017

Since the moment of my application, till the moment of my enrollment everything was easy and obvious. As soon as you enter the website, you can find any information that may be needed for you to enrollment. After your application was submitted, it takes a very short time till the school sends you an answer. Unlike other schools, Northwestern has a specific requirement of a video interview. The video is recorded via the platform provided by school. The questions are non-trivial what makes the whole process even more interesting. As soon as you are admitted, school starts to send you helpful and informative e-mails with the next steps. It really helps and encourages to choose this school among other schools. The whole program is well-composed and consists well-balanced courses. Sometimes you even cannot decide what to choose because everything is extremely interesting. Northwestern University is a place where everything inspires you to study and achieve success, because you believe that nothing is impossible.

Degree: MBA in Information Systems
Graduation Year: 2018

Northwestern University offers a flexible online Master of Information Systems that can be coupled with a full-time job in the field. The skills I gain in the program complement my full-time job well and gear me for a future career in IT management! I'd highly recommend the MSIS program at Northwestern University to any and all IT professionals.

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 1996

This was the best decision I ever made. I decided to quit my job and go full-time to the Kellogg School of Management. My earning potential nearly doubled and my career skyrocketed after I graduated. Their marketing focus, high class faculty and diverse student body gave me an edge against other applicants in every job. Still today - years later, I still feel the impact it had in my career

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

The program was very well designed. The program is an eighteen month full-time program. Course work was challenging including asynch work as well as live classes online. The students were placed in practicum by a placement specialist that fit your future work desire. Furthermore, the class size and professor knowledge was an added plus. Lastly the program provided engaging reading materials and support from the faculty.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2017

The Kellogg MBA has been tremendously beneficial for my career. Shortly after completing the degree, I was able to transition into a new industry that I had intended to prior to enrolling, and also attained a 105% pay increase over my pre-MBA pay. The networking opportunities were incredibly valuable, and I will have lifelong friends as a result.

Degree: Healthcare Informatics
Graduation Year: 2017

Northwestern University - School of Professional Studies offers the rigorous coursework and experience needed to complete a degree in Health Informatics or any subject matter while pursuing a professional career. I was able to continue full time employment as an electrical engineer while completing my masters in health informatics. The advisors and administrators are very passionate and always willing to listen and help. What makes the experience grand are the students and your peers. The collaboration and diversity of classmates from all around the world was amazing to experience. If all goes well, I'll be back for my MBA. Go WildCats!
