Berklee Online Announces Unprecedented 97% Student Satisfaction Rate
The results of the 2018 Berklee Undergraduate Exit Survey are in, and Berklee Online is proud to report an unprecedented result of 97% overall satisfaction among graduating Berklee Online students.
The Undergraduate Exit Survey is an opportunity to learn about the individual educational experiences of students at Berklee and what they are planning for their careers and lives. In addition to 97% overall satisfaction, Berklee Online graduates reported 97% satisfaction with their programs of study, 96% reported satisfaction with their professors, and 94% satisfaction with their courses.
Of the survey respondents, 79% are employed, self-employed, in an internship, or accepted/enrolled in continuing education. Of those already working, 78% are employed in the entertainment industry; the most common areas of employment are recording, live music, education, and technology. The students come from countries around the world: Australia, Canada, Chile, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Spain, Thailand, the US, and many more.
One graduating Berklee Online student who took the survey noted, “I had an amazing education and feel so connected not only to my craft, but also to a musical community as I venture beyond my education and into the world. I am very hopeful for my musical future!”
In other news, Berklee Online has now begun the first semester of their new master’s degree program as of September 24th. Students can pursue a master’s degree in two fields: Master of Music in Music Production and Master of Arts in Music Business. Students interested in learning more or applying for upcoming semesters can head to Berklee Online’s website.
The master’s degree program will continue Berklee Online’s cost-effective, high-quality breadth of offerings, and will give students the chance to earn their graduate degree for a total cost of $33,695 (tuition and fees included), which is roughly 20% less than the cost of the tuition for an on-campus master's degree.
