what they say
Tonim5Class of 2015 Public Policy
The pros of this graduate program is the quality of professor expertise in working in the public administration field. Many of the professors have worked in both administrative and field project initiatives and have practical expertise. A con of the graduate program is the ability to network and socialize with both fellow graduate students, alumni and community members. More emphasis could be placed on collaboration for research and community initiatives.
MsheinbeinClass of 2016 English
The staff and faculty are always willing to help and support. I've managed to create a network of professionals that will benefit me in the future.
Alk1362Class of 2015 Business Administration & Management

JenhunClass of 2018 Special Education
It is my first class at UNO but, so far I find the people to be great, the professors supportive and easy to communicate with and the information relative and informative.

The professors are enthusiastic and great teachers; the classes for this program are small and ideal for discussion based curriculum; there are a lot of available resources for research and study space on campus. This is more of a commuter school, so socializing and networking does not come as easily as at some other universities; depending on the time of day, parking can be very stressful; winter weather can be brutal for treks across campus.
Recentgrad2013Class of 2013 Business Administration & Management
Very reasonably priced, friendly faculty and staff, exceptional building (Mammel). Cons are the lack of national reputation and limited number of electives.

Macamp81Class of 2014 Public Administration
The public administration doctoral program is a unique experience when compared to other programs around the country. What differentiates this program, aside from the world class faculty, unparalleled staff, and the abundance of opportunities afforded to doctoral students, is the way the program first empowers and then compels students to foster an awareness of their orientation to the discipline of public administration. With regards to the opportunities students can avail themselves of while in the program, the program allows students to teach multiple undergraduate courses, both online and on-campus. More than anything else, the program encourages and supports students to develop their own research agenda, one that will carry them forward in their career, as opposed to some programs where students only have the option of adopting some dimension of a faculty's larger research agenda. I had the opportunity to be a student in several different Ph.D. programs, and deciding on UNO is a decision that forever changed my life.
JilldocterClass of 2015 Nonprofit Organization & Development
I have absolutely loved my experience with UNO's program. Taking all online classes was daunting at first, but the faculty and staff have been incredibly accommodating and communicative. I have been especially impressed with the office staff who handle course registration and general questions. Their responses to email questions is timely; they truly do go the extra mile to make your experience a successful one. The faculty are well-versed in their field, with years of teaching experience and field experience. I haven't found a course I didn't find useful in my career field. Since I currently work in the field I am studying, I have found the courses already assisting in how I tackle my job. I also liked the campus and Omaha as a whole when I visited. I would highly recommend UNO's program. Happy studying!
KwroshoneClass of 2014 Part-Time MBA
I feel that the pros of the program are that the courses required and offered give the student a well-rounded education for the business world. I was a biology major working in the corporate world, and the knowledge I have gained through UNO's MBA program has helped me understand business concepts better and has helped boost my confidence. The only cons that comes to mind are not offering more online courses, and not offering a wide variey of summer classes.
