Student & Graduate Reviews

2.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

This is such a unique program, since it's really the only of its kind. The classes offered are diverse although some of the subjects are a bit unexpected.

Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2015

Arizona State University is an overall amazing University. My program provides opportunities for students to thrive and succeed. I love that there is freedom to be who you are and that you don' have to conform to what the faculty think you should be. Public Transportation is reliable and affordable. I love that my faculty pushes me to be the best I can be. They honor creativity and diversity. The con is that I wish there was a little more diversity. There aren't many minorities. I also wish they was a little more funding for the graduate students.
3.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2015

The benefits conferred to me while completing my M.S. in Biology are the prestige of School of Life Sciences at ASU (ranked 13th in the nation) and the quality of resources I have access to at my lab in the Biodesign Institute. Arizona State University is a veritable community of its own and with this comes ever more resources (multiple libraries, eateries, health services, etc.). The downfall to my graduate program is the reduced funding offered to masters students as, according to numerous professors and scholastic professionals, these programs in the life sciences are a waning breed, even though these same academic leads agree with the value of a masters degree.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2014

The W.P. Carey School of Business is ranked high and I feel that the graduate program will prove to be very beneficial in my career. Arizona State University's business school also provides an opportunity to connect with a lot of public accounting firms and potential companies that you can work for.

Degree: Non-Profit Management
Graduation Year: 2015

I have just started the path as a Sun Devil. As of now I can tell you that I am impressed by the size of classes, the support and friendliness of the staff in the non-profit department, and the comprehensiveness of the academic program. As with many graduate programs, there isn't much financial aid offered but I am grateful for what I am receiving. While parking is very expensive in the downtown area I am impressed by the convenience of bus and metro provisions by the university and it makes traveling convenient. The surrounding downtown area is a little intimidating but ASU does a great job of creating community of the downtown campus and if community is what you seek then the Tempe campus has an abundance of community, diversity, and social life. Overall, this Californian turned Arizonan is overjoyed with my move to attend Arizona State University.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

The W. P. Carey School of Business is a phenomenal business school that gives students great career opportunities. I was able to get six internships during my undergraduate program, and already have numerous full-time offers for after my grad school graduation. I highly recommend W. P. Carey to anyone considering either an undergraduate or graduate degree in business.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2013

I am currently taking the online MBA at ASU. It has been a great program. Everything from the start with ASU has been a great experience. In the beginning, the admissions personnel are extremely helpful. The faculty works with all students on personal schedules and issues. My classmates have been outstanding scholars with great insights and intellect. In addition, the curriculum has been difficult, yet rewarding. ASU has a great learning process in which all students that put in the effort can learn a great deal from the MBA program. I would highly recommend ASU's online MBA program, or any of their MBA programs, to anyone interested.

Degree: International Business

The MBA online program is very well organized. The team approach is defintely a strength.
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Journalism
Graduation Year: 2015

This is a high intensity program where you experience a full immersion into your chosen field. Much is expected of the students as we learn to be fully professional workers. Because of the demands of the program, it is difficult/impossible to work while in school. This can create a real financial burden. Luckily the full grad program is 12-15 months so it is entirely manageable. The national recognition of this program is one of the amazing benefits. Many students graduate from this program with a byline in the Washington Post, Boston Globe, BBC etc. Which is an awesome opportunity!

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2015

If you are looking for a place that is seeking to honor creativity, then this might be the place. It is not for everyone, but here in these waters some thinking is wanting to begin.
