Alumni of Akamai University have commented, as follows:
The challenging and interesting curriculum at Akamai helped pave the way for my post-doctoral position.
The distance education model allowed me to work one-on-one with the instructors and effectively streamline the courses to fit my teaching situation, experience and interests.
I have discovered that Akamai’s program has the same qualities as other accredited colleges, and the knowledge level is equally high.
Akamai’s instructional methods focus on teamwork and discussion of the matters concerned, and by this means the students are always expected to creatively address the subject matter.
Please be informed that I am really impressed by the contacts I have had with the professors working with me at the moment. I am convinced that I am not going to regret my choice of this university.
Most helpful at Akamai was the availability of the professors. In a regular academic setting, I know that I would not have received as much personal attention and guidance.
