Our Graduate Success Stories

One of the best things about Herzing for me was the career development department.

I started attending Herzing University right out of high school. For me the decision to go to Herzing was not hard. I had taken a field trip with one of my classes to come to a Herzing high school orientation day, and I immediately loved the school. 

Madison - Graduate Programs Course Structure

Course structure

The Herzing University Online MBA degree programs were designed with the busy adult in mind. The school year has three semesters, and each semester is comprised of two 7 ½-week terms. Students have new classes every eight weeks, separated by either a long weekend or the winter or summer break.

Program length

Typically, graduate students can choose to take approximately one class at a time and complete their program in 2 years, or take approximately two courses at a time and finish in 1 year. In addition, students may adjust their schedules as other responsibilities permit, taking a lighter course load some terms and a heavier load in others.

Attendance

Online students should expect to spend a minimum of six (6) hours per week (over a 7½-week period) in their studies for each semester credit hour enrolled. This would include reading, researching, and writing papers, doing projects, completing exercises, studying, and reflecting on the course material as well as the time spent on the computer participating in discussion threads, reviewing online course materials, taking tests, and uploading/ downloading materials. The time devoted to classes scheduled for other than 7½-week periods would adjust proportionately.

Coursework

Students will be required to participate in some group projects, but most assignments are completed on an individual basis. Homework assignments are posted at the beginning of the week and must be completed and submitted by the due date. Typical assignments include a discussion question or two based on the lecture and reading due by mid-week (with replies and comments on classmates’ posts by the end of the week), and a written assignment or test due at the end of the week.

Depending on the course, students may be required to write essays, complete term projects, and/or take exams. Instructional materials differ for each course but often include electronic textbooks, website links, voice-over PowerPoint lectures, journal articles, case studies, and interviews.

Faculty availability

Instructors are available by internal message and telephone. Faculty can be reached for immediate answers during their posted office hours and will respond within 36 hours to any questions received outside of those hours.

Tutoring

Because class sizes are kept small, your instructor is also your tutor. Students and instructors can interact in a chat-like manner that allows for real-time discussion and example exercises. If the instructor’s posted office hours conflict with a student’s schedule, special appointments can be made.

Herzing University student data for MBA programs

Not all programs approved in all states.

The information below reflects aggregated data from all of the Herzing University campuses that have students enrolled in the specified program in the specified time period. The information does not reflect data regarding individual campuses unless only one campus had students to report. The reporting period used to obtain this data was 7/1/2012-6/30/2013. If there were less than 10 graduates in a program, median loan debt and on-time completion data were not disclosed for that program to protect the privacy of those students. Tuition and length may vary by campus location. Ranges could not be input for tuition and length, therefore tuition and length reported are the highest tuition rates and longest program length to encompass all campuses. For information regarding specific campus tuition please refer to http://www.herzing.edu/tuition-financial-aid . For a more detailed description of how the data was calculated please refer to the Disclosure Methodology located here http://www.herzing.edu/files/2014Disclosures-Methodology.pdf .
