The graduation rate value includes only programs that were completed less than six years for four-year degrees or less than three years for two-year degrees.

Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes a huge number of students. This index doesn’t take into account students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading perception. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture. Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare institutions.

I must take issue with Mr. Kuhn’s negative review on the International College of Broadcasting....There are a number of errors and mistatement facts that are easy to disprove.....First let me say I am in my 43rd year as an active broadcaster and in my 27th year as an instructor at ICB...Mr. Kuhn’s comments attacked the Director of Radio, Tommy Collins. I have known Mr. Collins professionally for more than 30 years...He is a true professional, with experience as on-air talent, producer, programmer, commercial production and so much more....He knows the business from every aspect and is excellent in passing this knowledge on to students... He is honest to the core and in no way a snake oil salesman as portrayed....Mr. Kuhn portrays the school owner as cheap....Did the owner refuse to give him change for the vending machine?...The owner has in my experience been responsive to have up-to-date equipment and has been willing to keep pace with he industry...In fact, ICB had computers with broadcast programs in most of the studios long before many stations had them... There are a couple of studios that have older equipment, but so do many of the stations that students will work at early in their careers...To my knowledge, equipment either works or is quickly fixed/replaced....Anytime I have used school equipment for student projects, I have not seen any broken equipment.....Mr. Kuhn complains that the instructor was incorrect in his directions to do a resume and the student went outside to a professional resume builder...The fact is, most job resume’s are required to be sent via email, not regular mail....Using a resume builder, or putting on paper is fine if that’s what you want to do, but it is not industry standard, no matter what anyone tells you...As to instructors, I can only speak for myself...This student refers to “the instructors are completely clueless about the subject” they are teaching... I personally take that as an insult based on my knowledge, experience and education....You claim most instructors don’t have more than a high school diploma....That can’t be since the State of Ohio and other sanctioning bodies require varying degrees....Yes, four-year schools require a PHD or Master’s for their faculty...My experience has been that the PHD rarely teaches the class, while their Teaching Assistant, someone with barely more education that the student, is at the front of the class...Also, so many PHD’s who do teach basically never left school, not having been out into the”real world”...No real experience, just theory....You mention the school has trouble keeping staff....I have been at ICB for 27 years....The department heads who are also the primary instructor in their discipline have been at ICB for many years...There have been few, if any, new instructors in the time Mr. Kuhn would have attended ....There have been couple of administrative changes recently but is Mr. Kuhn upset that there is a new front office manager? There is a new School Director but any business/institution has changes as time goes on....No one at ICB makes any promises about post-college employment....No one would have told Mr. Kuhn that he would have a $100,000 job and any student loan debt would magically disappear within weeks...I wouldn’t have stayed as an instructor at ICB for 27 years if I didn’t believe in the school, the administration, staff and students...

I graduated in November of 2017 from the International College of Broadcasting (ICB).When I started looking for a college to attend in the area to expand and improve my videography skills I was recommended ICB by an alumni. I found the course description of Multimedia Production and Broadcasting to fit my personal goals really well.Before I started classes I was told the instructors will do their best educate and train you, but how well you do is based on how much effort you put towards your future. That is unbelievably true, I showed up on time 99% of the time and worked hard on all the projects that we're assigned us.It was rather unique for me since before ICB I had only attended military classes or online courses. It was fascinating that on the first day of video class I was actually holding and using different kinds of video cameras. I was also introduced to the Radio side of broadcasting, where I also utilized the equipment on the first day of class.While you are attending classes you are required to complete a certain number of hours as an intern in the industry. I interned at Troy Community TV on Demand. Which Mr. Collins got me the connection to accomplish. I learned so much having real world experience and watching how a local news functions.Before my last semester a job opportunity opened up at WHIO Breaking News Team. I hadn't completed my resume or digital demo, so Mr. Collins and Mr. Williams (Video Instructor) worked with me after classroom hours to fine tune everything and submit my application to WHIO. I got the part time job at WHIO and couldn't believe it. They were very impressed with my resume and my demo!If you want into the broadcasting, audio or videography industry your money would be wisely spent on your education at ICB.

As a grad of ICB I would like to be the first to say that this was the BEST COLLEGE EXPERIENCE that I have ever had. The teachers were always ready to answer a question that I had, more than happy to stay with me for a project and always had a smile on their faces. All of the teachers were knowledgeable and really knew what they were talking about. Probably because everyone that works there has so much experience in the business. The classrooms are small but not too small, and it really feels like a personal learning experience. The studios were excellent, and really give you the feel and experience you need for the real world. It was very cool that they had their own radio station to allow for students to work out the kinks and hone their craft. I can never truly thank the International College of Broadcasting for what they have done for me and my family. I highly recommend you at least check out a free hands-on workshop because once you do, you'll see that this is really the best hands-on trade school for anyone trying to get into the radio business. Nothing will be handed to you, you have to want it. And that might be the best lesson I take out of the school. I would also like to add that the review from Mason Kuhn either below or above me is very obviously a hit piece and pretty much everything said in that review was a lie. Thank you for reading this and at the very least give them a call and check them out. You wont regret it.

I am a recent grad of ICB, and I can be the first to tell you that this is not the place that your going to receive a quality education or get the skills necessary to make it big in the media industry. I will be taking out over $30,000 in student loans, in an industry that doesn’t pay enough to make a comfortable living. I strongly suggest that if you do decide to go to ICB(which I strongly advise against) BE WARNED, you will likely have to pay a company to make a resume for you, because the career developing instructor is a loser that doesn’t want to help you, and his idea of a “resume to land it big in the industry” is to make a very basic and tacky looking resume in Microsoft Word... absolutely terrible.Do not let the radio instructor fool you, he’s a con artist. Deep down he doesn’t want to help you get a job and then blames it on you the student if you can’t make a decent living. This college also has a pretty big problem of being able to keep staff, which is odd if you ask me. The owner of the college is also one of the cheapest people I know, he will do almost anything to keep his money in his pocket. Between not having up to date equipment,and the owner cutting costs anywhere he can, and not caring about the students is just the tip of the iceberg.Equipment was always broken or missing, was outdated and barely usable. The bathroom at ICB Is the exact same thing you would find at run down truck stop, with no hot water(nasty). The instructors and students will bully you because of your views or beliefs,which you will be forced to express for certain “classes” how professional is that! Student complaints go unheard, and are never addressed.The classroom environment is just like going to get your tags renewed at the DMV... only worse, hard and uncomfortable chairs, and the instructors are completely clueless about the subject they are supposed to be knowledgeable in teaching.... Seriously? In fact most of them have nothing more than a high school diploma! What a joke.ICB is designed to scam you out of your money, and get you into debt that you will never be able to pay off. Take it from a grad, and DONT go here. I promise you will hate it here. You’re paying $30,000 in student loans and are going to a “college” that is a total and complete scam! The only way I would be happy with this place, is if I got out of my student loans in exchange for me to give them my degree back. because I would take my business elsewhere!To make a long story short ICB is a total ripoff/scam for what your getting in return. You can find a way better college to learn communications for probably about the same amount of money. It’s a complete waste of two years and $30,000!
