Review for Spertus Institute For Jewish Learning And Leadership, Chicago, IL, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

As a graduate of one of Spertus’ Jewish studies program, I can say that the program was extremely challenging and rewarding. The professors were very knowledgeable in their respective fields; some were among the best teachers I have ever had. I learned a great deal about a variety of area of a Jewish life, both contemporary and historical, that have helped shaped my overall thinking today. I also learned practical professional, interpersonal, and management skills. The one-on-one mentoring from high-profile community members provided invaluable individual attention.

To round out my Spertus experience, I took a fundraising course in their non-profit management program, which also challenged me to do creative work and think differently about how I might handle an age-old problem that every non-profit faces.

Five years ago neither graduate school in general nor Spertus in particular was on my radar. Today I am proud have a degree with their name on it. And I am a better person and professional for it.

Role:  Client Served & I was a student in one of their Master's Degree programs. .
