Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2015

For me the pros of this graduate program are that it works will with my work schedule. I am able to maintain a full-time job and attend my graduate classes at night during the week. Therefore, I am able to continue supporting myself and pay my bills. Also, the classes are broken down into nine week terms rather than the traditional 16-18 week semester.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2011

Webster University does provide value to their students, however the cost of earning my MBA at this program was just too much and has been crippling in my professional life. I'd recommend seeking out cheaper alternatives with better brand recognition.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2015

I feel that getting a graduate degree will really help me in the accounting field. I don't think that general studies in graduate school is necessary.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2016

I attend Webster University's off-campus locations. I take their off-campus classes at both Andrews Air Force Base and Boiling Air Force Base. I love the fact that even though I don't take classes at their home/main campus, I still get the in-class experience that I love. There are a lot of graduate programs that offer online classes which is fine, but Webster delivers an educational experience that fits well with the way I personal like to learn. The best part is that, I still have access to all the main campus's resources. That speaks volumes to the type of effort and quality Webster puts into all their programs. Webster’s programs are not overly priced like most grad school programs. I am only 23 years old and I could afford other grad school programs without having to ad to my current student loan bill. I am able to work full time and pay for my classes out of pocket. Even though my parents are willing to help pay, I want to prove to myself that I can de independent and stand on my own. Every teacher I have had so far are very passionate about the class they teach, are willing to go the extra mile to make sure all the concepts are understood by all their students. I honestly have nothing bad to say about Webster. I am excited that I will graduate with my MBA. I know that the skills and assets that I learned will make me a superior worker and soon to be boss/manager.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

The Webster Counseling program is excellent. It has prepared me well and I cannot wait to graduate and apply the knowledge I have gained. The professors really care and have experience to share with us as they have all worked in the industry before becoming professors.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2016

I feel the pros of going with this master's degree from Webster are numerous personnel civilian and military have a degree from this school on their resume. This school is recognized as one of the go to schools if you want a degree in Acquisition. Webster recognizes the level II certification from DAU and one will receive credits from the DAU courses towards their degree. Another pro is their are numerous locations within the D.C., VA and MD area to take courses or you can take all of the courses online if one is very busy and not able to make the in classroom times. The CONS are some of the courses through the military that go towards your level II certification in Acquisition recognized by DAU for level II certification, Webster University does not currently recognize. One of these courses is the Army Intermediate Contracting Course (AICC) that covers 5 different contracting courses in one month and is highly recognized within the military however, not with Webster. The second CON is there are not too many financial aid programs for graduated level degrees.
