Kellogg is a great program- it is academically rigorous without feeling overly competitive. The community is extremely collaborative and supportive.

Great program. Great school. Great faculty. Cost is a little bit on the high side, but worth it. Flexible times available for online program. Easy for those engaged in other things or a full time job.

Degree: Sociology

Good place for both quantitative and qualitative research programs. Excellent, very well known faculty. I work in Soc of Law and it's a top 3 dept for that.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2017

Northwestern is such a high caliber school to begin with but their graduate program in integrated marketing communications is even better (especially since they established this program in the country). However, what makes the program so valuable are the faculty who are kind, helpful, and constructive. They help you while in school but also stay in touch long after graduation, so I've heard.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

The online program does not cheat you out of any education. They have made their on ground program available to everyone. You get the same education and attention as you do on campus but from the comfort of your home state. The work load is heavy but it is also a prestigious so this is expected. Love the program and school GO Wild CATS!! This is not a program for someone who is not familiar with technology. You also have to be able to work independently.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2017

I did not rate concerns about the campus, because it is an online program - Masters in Medical Informatics - not on the list. That said, it is EXCEPTIONAL. Very engaged, very flexible, very useful.
