Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2018

There are not enough adjectives to describe how bad this schools is for an MS in BME. DO NOT ATTEND!!! You will end up with A TON of debt for no value. The school does not care about you and most of the teachers don't either. I will probably be successful, but only by my own doing. The school has done nothing but make astronomical barriers.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2019

I returned to graduate school for MSW as an adult learner. I entered in an off year of the regular program. The Director of the off campus program is creative and helpful in putting a schedule together that will meet graduation requirements as well as personal responsibilities. The professors are knowledgeable, creative and accessible in the teaching of the courses. Courses can be taken on campus, off campus locations and online. I highly recommend the Boston University School of Social Work if considering the MSW degree.

I believe that a degree from Boston University will serve as an essential qualification in any student's toolbox of skills and experiences, distinguishing students from others in any field. With a Boston University degree, students have many career opportunities at many ethically sound companies around the. Students will be able makes a global impact on the world. Boston University sets itself apart from the rest not only through the simplicity of the campus (it spans over Commonwealth Avenue), but also the caliber of academics. This trait is prevalent amongst all the professors as they are thorough with course materials, but even more so when interacting with students outside the classroom (especially with office hours). Professors care about student success and it is paramount for the overall success that is found at BU. The diversity of the student body and their unique cultural perspectives will enrich any students learning as much as the coursework; it is an opportunity exclusive to BU. In addition to the diversity of Questroms student body, there are vast opportunities to become immersed in the exciting options for majors, classes, case studies, entrepreneurial school spirit, international seminars, and student organizations that are available to all students. Team projects and capstones are some of the most impactful experiences a student can have during their time at Boston University. The school takes pride in allowing students to build long-lasting relationships with people from all over the world. The many amazing programs at Boston University provide students with useful resources, beautiful facilities, and extremely qualified faculty.

Degree: Project Management

Great university -- was one of the only top schools offering an online project management program at the time of my search. The program was hands-on allowing for a thorough understanding of the Project Management Book of Knowledge and the project management processes.
