Degree: MBA in International Business
Graduation Year: 2018

Arcadia is a good university if a student wants to travel abroad. The MBA program includes one trip per year. In my cohort I met some wonderful people. I started a business with my classmate, spoke in detail with the Director and several professors about the company and they have allowed us to take over 20 days off from class to travel and start up our company. The classroom instruction is helpful and many teachers encourage the student to learn the material before proper instructions are given. We complete many case studies and read hundreds of pages each week. If you would like the same education from an Ivy League school without the price Arcadia is a good option.

Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2019

Arcadia University is located in a small quaint town, established on hills of green grass and surrounded by a variety of trees, shrubs and perennials. The college itself is a castle, with a unique background story. The town is safe and friendly, a "home away from home". The faculty are wonderful, they have assisted me with the entire process from apply to the University, registering for classes and planning each semester so I have an outline of the courses and time it shall take me to complete the Graduate Program. My advisers and professors have been constantly available for my questions and supportive in my personal and educational needs. I am happy to be apart of Arcadia University.

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2017

Hi! I am Trina Keene and I am currently pursuing my Master's degree in Early Childhood Education at Arcadia University . The program that I am enrolled in is an accelerated cohort program that allows me to get my advance degree in a significantly shorter period of time than a traditional graduate program. This path is perfect for the full-time working mom as it gives a perfect balance of freedom and flexibility of online classes, while maintaining those social interactions and collaborations achieved in a classroom setting. I love that Arcadia provided these types of opportunities for people like me. Since the education field is ever-changing, it is refreshing to see this school providing other ways for working adults to get their degree. In addition, the teaching staff is welcoming and knowledgeable. Although the styles of teaching varies with each professor, the amount of interest, determination, and dedication that the teaching staff has for the students are very apparent. Choosing this university to pursue my Master's degree was the best decision I've made in order to start my new career. Since I have started, I have never looked back!

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2017

With Arcadia's promise to a global education, their MBA program has two separate international trips to see different business in different markets around the world. This is an incredible pro. In addition with the schedule, understanding that students might be working while pursing their masters, they embrace every type of student. This is another incredible pro. The only con I can think is the limited options to add classes to develop a more rounded masters with multiple concentrations because it is a small school. But even with the concentrations offered, it still is a pro.
