        Cleary Student/Teacher RatioSmall class sizes made one on one time with the teacher easier. Cost of books is included in the non-profit, lost cost tuiton. Very friendly staff. I personally know the Dean of Science, Dawn Markell, and she is a fantastic lady. Lots of classes are a combination of in class and online but they are flexible and work with you to make sure you can still learn the material and do everything else that is in your life. Great school for adults looking to go back to school not immediately after high school.

        Cleary University helped me re-invent my professional self!When I decided to return to full time work from part-time consulting, my degrees were out-of-date and my timing was bad. The news declared the recession over in 2009 but no one else seemed to know about it. So I enrolled at Cleary in 2010 and received a graduate assistant position to help with tuition. The accelerated MBA program quickly updated my skills through Managerial Finance, Economics, Stats, Accounting, Marketing and all the other courses that I needed to re-enter the workforce full-time. When I finished, Cleary hired me full-time and I am grateful for the opportunity they have given me to start over. I recommend it to anyone needing to re-invent themselves or to parents of high school students looking for a creative and innovative business school for their students. My son will soon be a Cleary alum, too!
