Student & Graduate Reviews

5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2018

I am currently enrolled in the online MBA program at Arizona State University. I chose ASU because of its high online school rating and reputation among the professional community. I can proudly state that ASU is living up to its reputation. ASU has a very rigid program and holds all of its students to a high standard. The online MBA program required every student to attend an, in person, orientation. During orientation, the faculty and staff layout exactly what is expected of each student and what the class schedule will be for the lifetime of the program. This was extremely helpful with planning life activities such as family actives, closing dates on a house, and so on. During orientation, you also pick your team for core class team projects for your lifetime of the program as well. Mock projects are organized to help you learn to work with your new team and get to know each other. This was extremely helpful and I have had a great experience working with everyone. I have completed my first year with the program and have one more year remaining. The teachers and staff have been extremely kind and helpful. Even though I am online student and will not meet most of the teachers, they treat the students as if they were on campus. Every teacher has had flexible online office hours, set up message boards for group interaction with the entire class and have been very responsive to any questions. Though the classes are only 5 weeks the teachers try to get to know the students the best they can. All the teachers show a great interest and love for what they do. All teachers have been available outside of the classroom for questions and help with their expertise. Another great aspect of the ASU MBA program is it has a department set up to help their student get a degree related job after graduation. I have already been contracted with future job opportunities through this group. I would recommend anyone to attend ASU. They have a high standards for themselves and their students. They offer a wide variety of undergraduate and graduate degrees and offer flexible means of classes (online, day and night classes).

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

I searched long and hard to find a board approved applied behavior analysis program that is fully online. As a full-time special education teacher it is difficult to find programs that will work with your schedule. This school offers the opportunity to continue working while furthering your career. I find that to be highly valuable and I am so thankful to have found Arizona State University.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2019

The online program is easy to understand in terms of technology and the instructors are very supportive. While online sounds like it's easier, I find it to be more challenging and fits better into my schedule. ASU offers a wide range for online programs and I highly recommend it to all who are considering an education with a busy life at home. I personally have three children, a full time job and a husband who works out of town most of the time, so I live a very busy life however cannot put my education on hold.

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2014

ASU has been noted for its innovation. I am proud to have been a student within the Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College. ASU was very hands on with my learning. Despite being a graduate student, I did not feel alone. I had support from every staff member I reached out to. Working full time as an educator while attending school can be very stressful, but my instructors were accommodating and made sure what I learned, I could take with me into the classroom the next day. I left my classroom feeling inspired and ready to take on the challenges of my classroom. Unfortunately as you go higher within schooling, you do not see as many minority students. In that space, I did feel pretty alone. I wished there were affinity groups for graduate students, as it seems the connection to campus tends to get lost.

Degree: Engineering Management

Arizona State has offered me the opportunity of getting knowledge that will help me advance in my career. The best of all, in this time of willing or unwilling segregation, ASU offers you access to a diverse student body that will make you more open to other cultures.

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2019

Arizona State University is ranked #5 among online MBA schools and also one of the least expensive colleges to obtain an MBA from. Recently I also read that ASU is one of the top 10 colleges from which silicon valley hires. These were some of the credentials I looked at before applying to and accepting an admission from ASU. Right through the application process I was impressed. There was an admission specialist that was specifically assigned to me and he was always available to answer any questions I had while filling up my application! After I submitted my application I even got a call from the specialist and he congratulated me and let me know that I was accepted into the program. I later got transferred to an enrollment advisor who guided me through the process of enrolling for classes and answering other miscellaneous questions I had. I then got added to a cohort who would go through the entire journey with me. I also like the format that was designed for the online program. Each semester is broken down to 3 courses that take place one after another and each lasts for 5 weeks. For a working professional this format makes complete sense since I only have to focus on 1 course at a time. I also read that the student can choose when to take the final exam in that course during the 5 week period. It just keeps getting better. There is decent online MyASU website in which most information can be found and if one cannot find an answer, there is a 24/7 chat service available. And as a last resort there is also an email that can be sent, which gets answered in 24 hrs. Additionally an online tutor is also available to answer any questions you man have and all classes are recorded so that you can watch it at your leisure. For online correspondence with cohort members university gmail is available in which chat and video sessions can be initiated. I am still in the online MBA program and hence cannot give a full correspondence of the program and its benefits. But with what I have seen so far I am confident that the post-graduate benefits such as earning potential, preparedness for career, satisfaction with degree and career advising would also earn top points from me. I am very happy with the program so far and would recommend to anybody who is seriously considering doing an online MBA. Cheers, GT

Degree: Mechanical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2017

I liked my undergrad program, and I think getting my masters in a year with the 4+1 program was a great opportunity. Furthermore, the ability to get a masters degree for free by being a TA for a year is a great deal if you can swing it. I did have a few really bad teachers, but I also had some who were amazing. It evened out in the end. I think the biggest issue would be not learning a few skills that are more applicable in industry. GD&T is a good example of this. I think there should be a required class on this subject. Overall, it was a good experience, and I got to work with some great engineers.

Degree: Mechanical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2017

ASU is a great place to study Mechanical Engineering (or any other type of engineering, for that matter). As with any school, some professors are pretty bad, but overall I found my professors to be very good. More importantly, though, there are great opportunities for supplementing classwork: research (for both undergrads and grads), tons of student orgs, and workshops / networking opportunities / career fairs. And financing your graduate tuition is made a lot easier by their RA/TA opportunities. My biggest critique would be that many of the graduate courses are too specific to be of use in the industry (the classes seem geared toward research instead).

Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2018

The school of public affair's master degree program in public administration is challenging and rewarding. They provide many opportunities to gain first-hand experience in the public sector. In addition, the program provides opportunities to work with large city budgets and find solutions to balance those budgets in a meaningful way. Unfortunately the courses offered do not always have options for the day of the week it is offered, or the professor that teaches the course.
