Graduates save on tuition at internationally-ranked business school in Michigan
There’s a longstanding belief that ‘you get what you paid for.’
While very often true, there is a case in Michigan where you can get so much more than what you paid for.
Thousands of college students have earned a bachelor’s degree from Walsh — an internationally-ranked private business school with five locations in metro Detroit and online — while also alleviating some of the major stress of the always-growing cost of tuition or smothering school debt now facing the majority of recent college graduates in the U.S.
“A student who starts at community college and finishes their bachelor’s degree at Walsh can potentially save between $30,000-60,000 over a four-year public or private institution,” said Karen Mahaffy, executive director of admissions and enrollment services.
For those students who do take on loans, the 2015 three-year default rate is 3.4% for Walsh students, compared 12.2% across Michigan and 10.8% nationally, according to the U.S. Department of Education.
With bachelor’s and master’s degrees, as well as certificates in business and technology, Walsh has established a track record as a strong choice for students who want the knowledge and skills they need in their career and a degree that’s well-regarded in the corporate and business world.
Walsh has worked to perfect its personalized and seamless process of transferring in college credits from virtually any private or public higher-education institution.
“Walsh is committed to making the transfer process smooth for students,” Mahaffy said. “Advisors provide personal attention throughout the transfer process to ensure students have all the classes they need and continue on the best path toward their degree.”
Another opportunity has also gained strength in Michigan in recent years. Students who attend public high schools and are able to earn community college credits before graduating from high school can come out even further ahead — both in financial savings and getting a degree sooner.
Walsh offers three different options allowing students to save time and money while earning their bachelor’s degree.
For students who start at community college, the Walsh Now program allows them to start earning credits toward their bachelor’s degree while still taking classes at their community college.
Walsh also offers FastTrack, an accelerated degree program that lets students earn an associate, bachelor’s and a master’s degree in as little as five years.
With Walsh Online, many degrees can be completed entirely online from anywhere in the world, at any point in the student’s degree earning path — whether they are focused full time on school or are working professionals who need the flexibility to schedule course work around their career.
Smaller class sizes, both on ground and online, make it easier for students to get to know their peers and receive personal attention from faculty — and 95% of Walsh faculty bring real world business experience from their own careers to their curriculum.
For students seeking a more traditional college experience, Walsh offers an active, career-focused student life community. Lifetime career services are also available to students and alumni, which is a great benefit, considering Walsh has a 94% employment rate and alumni working in nearly every Fortune 500 company in Michigan.
Walsh is proof that you don’t have to sacrifice quality to have an exceptional, well-rounded undergraduate college experience that is also more affordable.
