I have really enjoyed taking MBA courses at Dowling College. The instructors are extremely assailable. The workload isn't too bad if you stay on top of it. I am currently looking to get back into the MBA online courses. So far all of my professors have been very informative, helpful and tech savvy. I've learned so much from each an everyone of my professors. I have also taken two in class MBA classes and those professors were just as helpful as my online professors. One of my in class professor even had us do a lot of group work online which was great and prepped me for my online classes. Over all I ahve really enjoyed my experience in taking graduate level courses at Dowling College
Review Dowling College
The campus is beautiful, the classes are small, and the professors truly care about you as a person. The only downfall is the tuition is a little pricey.
Dowling college doesn't have enough events for the students to participate in. It is also very expensive.
