I changed my career and now teach online. I feel that my educational journey helped me to become a better business owner and instructor. Walden was the only University to use the term of diversity. In the past, every time I was told how diverse I am, it was always in a negative tone. I learned that diversity is a positive and appreciate that Walden helped change my course in life.

The Business Program is riddled with problems. One of which is too many students and not enough people despite plenty of incoming money. Another issue is redundancy, meaning same types of courses from one degree to the next. Another - Curriculum that has not been revised for several years. Another - Professors that have less experience and degrees than you. Another - professors who are on an online ego boost. Another - don't have a serious issue in life - no one will help you.

This is a great school. The teachers are very helpful, the finance department will correct mistakes very quickly, and the assignments are challenging but doable. This is a school for employed, computer literate people who have busy lives outside of school. The staff is very supportive. I have been in college for 12 years, to me it seems that all these people who give bad reviews just don't want to do the work or they chose a degree that they don't like.

I have had a horrible experience with the student support and counseling department with Walden University. The latest issues have been fighting with the Financial Accounting Management Office. I received a FINAL DEMAND FOR PAYMENT NOTICE on March 2nd, 2017 with the notice dated February 9th, 2017. I immediately call the number on the notice and spoke to a lady who did not identify herself. I was incensed to receive this final notice with the threat of collection not having received the first notice... Read More

Walden is a for Profit school beware. I am an Alumni and made every attempt to finish my second degree with them this was a very difficult task to complete as it is for many other students. Look for a school who has the same goal as you do. A University who will partner with you to finish your degree with the least amount of financial burden as possible!

Walden is an online University, it is not Harvard or Yale. If you are looking for a degree that is going to give you instant success in life, you'll be looking forever. I don't care where you went to school, if you don't work hard, and solve your own problems you will fail in the real world too. Most of the successful people I know did not go to big schools, they went to junior college and transferred to state schools. Or they opened their own businesses and worked hard to be successful.

Save yourself money and headaches. Do not attend Walden University no matter how good it sounds on paper or how many course "pre-course" credits they offer you in advance. Get a root canal instead, you will enjoy it much more and it will cost you a lot less :)

I attended Walden with great expectations in finishing as documented in the admission process. I found out way TOO late that the majority of the students do not finish in 5 doctoral study final classes - they finish in 10 classes!!! This adds time - over a year, not to mention so many DOLLARS. I had 3 different methodologist that took over 5 months to review a part of the study. Completed my study process over 6 months ago and between the individual reviews, it is still in process with no expected... Read More
