Message from the President

Dear Student,

Welcome to the Keller Graduate School of Management family, and congratulations on taking this important step toward furthering your education and preparing to advance your career. Know that our talented faculty and committed support staff will be there for you every step of the way. It is our goal to support your success as a graduate student, both inside and outside the classroom. We are here for you, and we care about your success.

Founded in 1973 by Dennis Keller and Ron Taylor, Keller Graduate School of Management originally offered a certificate in business administration, which became the forerunner of the executive MBA programs that emerged in the years that followed. After three decades of success, Keller merged with DeVry Institute of Technology to become DeVry University in 2002. While the strength of a Keller education remains rooted in tradition, we continue to evolve to keep pace with the needs of today's employers. Whether it is our MBA program, one of our specialized master's degree programs, or one of our graduate certificate programs, you have the opportunity to learn the skills that can give you the edge in your career.

Among the many other benefits of the Keller experience, you can learn from a faculty of practicing professionals who are passionate about what they do and eager to share those insights with their students. They bring the workplace to the classroom so you gain relevant knowledge that can be immediately applied to your career.

Keller provides the flexibility to mix quality onsite instruction ? offered evenings and weekends throughout the country ? with dynamic online learning. Courses are offered in eight-week sessions that begin six times each year. And because we know balancing school and other priorities is important, our academic schedule and onsite/online format make it easy to progress at a pace that suits your goals and lifestyle.

We are committed to providing you with an education that provides a powerful return on investment ? one that capitalizes on emerging technologies that enhance the learning environment and help you build connections to Keller's faculty, student and alumni communities. We are grateful for the opportunity to contribute to your success and excited about what lies ahead for you. All the best as you continue your educational journey.

Respectfully,

F. Willis Caruso, Jr. Interim President & CEO, General Counsel, Secretary and Vice President, Regulatory Affairs DeVry University
