I received my PhD from Akamai University in 2013. As a result of its rigorous curriculum,
I have found my life's work as a biophysicist, researching the therapeutic effects of pulsed electromagnetic field as it applies to both inflammation and stem cell based tissue engineering. I now work at the Wake Forest School of Medicine's Institute for Regenerative Medicine.
I highly recommend Akamai University!
Akamai has an excellent academic program I ever come across as a Distant Learning institution.
As a PhD grad, I can finally say that this was the first degree of many where I was finally free to spread my wings. I was able to plan my programme guided by my own passion and work with people who share a vision. Akamai restored my faith in academic possibilities.
Akamai has been dedicated to not only socially responsible education and research, but also to helping the local community in Hawaii and addressing global issues impacting the human condition. I have put my money where my mouth is and have donated a considerable amount of both time and money to this institution because I believe in its mission. I have not been disappointed in how those resources have been used to help focus on issues of poverty, environmental sustainability, human health, and peace studies. This is an organization that you can believe in. They make a difference!
Akamai is the best Distant Learning Institution, I have ever come across.
I have been on staff since its inception and am proud of the fact I have been a small part of the institution that we know as Akamai university
Akamai University has provided me with exceptional instruction to continue to pursue my studies in Complementary and Alternative Medicine. The instructors have been strong mentors in their fields, and the online courses allow me the opportunity to create the learning pace that I need with my current career demands. As the field of CAM continues to grow and develop I am excited to be a part of the post graduate programming.
As a current student of Akamai University I am confident to say that I have received individualized attention not only from the faculty but also from the administrative staff. Most of my professors have been exceptional professionals who care about my professional development and encourage me in thinking critically and in positively contributing to the wellbeing of humanity. A very special thank you to my Chair for her invaluable support and guidance these past years!!
As a proud alumni (PhD 2011), I am happy to say that Akamai University is an exceptional and progressive institution with world class faculty using learner and learning sensitive instructional methods appropriate to the diverse needs its international students, effectively engaging its adult learners to think integrally and inclusively as global citizens, to creatively seek possibilities, ask great questions, and co-craft novel solutions that apply learning beyond the "class". The flexible program design and pace allows for greater choice in degree study, furthering optimal achievement, realization, field specific and cross-disciplinary skills, and individualized holistic learning experiences that have immediate relevance to the student's personal and professional life. The faculty respect each student as a unique individual, academically and professionally. Freed from traditional residency requirements, Akamai's distance learning students are able to pursue advanced study in a personalized and self-paced manner while maintaining full time employment and family responsibilities. Akamai University has a variety of flexible options for students at all levels of distance education experience and is known to honor the life pursuits of its students, providing opportunities to integrate professional activities within their programs. Akamai faculty members exhibit understanding and sensitivity to the diverse academic, socioeconomic, cultural, national, religious, ethnic, and geographic backgrounds of their students. Degree programs can include fieldwork, practicums, and internships with bespoke relevance to professional goals, personal growth, and career advancement. I also liked the encouragement of instructors to have students like me not just "write for the course" but to gain publication experience through its own hosted journals and mainstream peer reviewed journals. And I really liked the enriching experience of being part of a global community of program participants. For a pragmatic idealist wanting a degree program mentored by world class faculty, flexible in content and pace while maintaining high and rigorous academic standards for relatively low tuition, Akamai University delivers !
