I am undertaking a Masters of Management program at The Fuqua School of Business at Duke University and it has been amazing so far. The school has such a high caliber of students and faculty who genuinely care about you. There is a definite "fuqua family" feel here and I have settled in very easily. The diversity is phenomenal, we have people from as far as Swaziland and myself from Australia entering the program. The amount of work is quite challenging though and we are always being worked hard, however, you know that it is for a reason and I truly believe that when I get to my job next year I will be ready. Durham itself is not great, it does have good food but there are certain areas that are not great and you can feel unsafe. Overall though the prestige and network that I have gained from Duke has been phenomenal and I now have access to people and corporations I never could have dreamt about back home in Australia.

Pros - Great people in the program who care a LOT and want to make a difference in the world. Duke has so many great learning opportunities, and the professors are great. Cons - there's so much to do, so you really have to prioritize your two years in the program!

Duke's Fuqua School of Business is well worth the time and money invested. It's diverse student body lends itself to a holistic learning environment beyond the fundamentals of management education. There are many opportunities to study overseas and to engage with professors on their academic research. Some of the drawbacks include a lackluster career management centers, the resources of which are stretched thin due to several competing academic programs. Additionally, the school's facilities, while new, are still cramped.

Fuqua is a great business school with great professors. Durham isn't that great.

Graduation Year: 2013

It is a good program, with very knowlegeable faculty. Facilities are great, and the environment of the city helps a lot to focus on school and develop the social life among the students. As improvements, the level of the courses could be higher, and faculty should use more simulations programs.
