GRADUATE PROGRAM FAQS

IS KELLER AN ACCREDITED SCHOOL?

A hallmark of a DeVry University education is the institutional accreditation we’ve been granted from The Higher Learning Commission (HLC), and Keller Graduate School of Management is included in this accreditation. The in-depth accreditation process provides assurance that rigorous standards of quality have been met in several areas such as curriculum, faculty and student support. 

HOW LONG WILL MY GRADUATE PROGRAM TAKE?

Because the required number of credit hours varies by program, the length of time it takes for someone to earn their Master’s Degree at Keller can vary, too. Depending on the program you select and the pace you prefer, you might take one or two classes per 8-week session. You may also be able to accelerate the journey to your master’s degree using a combination of approved transfer credits, course waivers* and/or credit for professional training, and satisfy the requirements for up to six courses.

For example, if you’ve earned an undergraduate degree in business or a related field, you may have satisfied the requirements for up to four courses in a master’s degree program at Keller through our Master’s Advantage. To learn more about Master’s Advantage and other ways to earn credit for what you’ve already achieved, visit Keller’s Course Waivers and Transfer Credits page.

HOW MANY PROGRAMS DOES KELLER OFFER?

Keller offers a wide range of graduate degree programs — an MBA with 10 concentrations8 Master's Degree programs and 9 Graduate Certificates — in important business fields from accounting and finances to information systems and human resources.

WHAT'S THE AVERAGE TOTAL NUMBER OF CREDIT HOURS REQUIRED FOR A PROGRAM?

The total number of credit hours that you'll be required to take varies by program, and our courses average three-semester-credit hours. Our MBA standalone program requires 13 courses, our MBA with concentration is 16 courses, our Master’s Degree Programs require at least 16 courses and the Graduate Certificates are at least 6 courses.

WHAT'S A CONCENTRATION OR SPECIALIZATION?

Some Master's Degree programs at Keller (including our MBA degree program) allow you to focus your degree by taking elective courses in a specific subject area, often applicable to one or several career fields. This area is called a "concentration" or “specialization”.

WHAT'S AN EMPHASIS?

Some of our Specialized Master's Degree Programs have different areas of study for those with specific professional areas of interest or expertise. By pursuing one of these areas, you'll emphasize an area of study as you work toward your degree. That's why we say, for example, a Master of Accounting & Financial Management with a CPA emphasis.

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A MASTER OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION (MBA), A MASTER'S DEGREE AND A GRADUATE CERTIFICATE?

These offerings are all graduate-level areas of study, but the main differences are the coursework and required number of credits that you'll need to take. Depending on your career interests and goals, one area of study may be best for you.

DO I NEED TO CHOOSE A SPECIALIZATION/EMPHASIS FOR MY MBA OR MASTER'S DEGREE?

To help you focus your MBA, you can choose one of our specializations, but a focus is not a requirement to graduate. For our Master's Degree programs that have emphases, you will be required to select one.

CAN I OBTAIN A CPA LICENSE FROM KELLER?

CPA licenses are granted by each state; however, we do offer CPA exam preparation courses that integrate Becker Professional Education's CPA Exam Review Methodology. You can incorporate CPA exam prep courses as part of your coursework for programs such as our Master of Accounting & Financial Management and MBA with a Specialization in Accounting. We also offer a Graduate Certificate in CPA Preparation that includes such exam prep coursework.

WHAT'S THE BENEFIT OF THE GLOBAL ACCREDITATION CENTER (GAC) ACCREDITATION FROM PMI?

Keller’s Master of Project Management program has been awarded accreditation by the Project Management Institute’s Global Accreditation Center (GAC). GAC is an international accreditation awarded only to those institutions that foster “excellence in continuous improvement in academic programs related to the field of Project Management.” This accreditation means you are being taught current best practices in the Project Management field.

Learning is convenient with classes offered online or in a hybrid on-campus and online format. You will also learn in convenient 8-week sessions with full- and part-time schedule options. There are also on-demand learning resources such as tutoring, digital library services and the ability to access your courses 24/7 via our mobile app.
