Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2016

Well informed staff that will definitely respond if you reach out to them. It would be great if there were more scholarships offered through the school. The area is great.

Degree: Forensic Science
Graduation Year: 2016

I feel that my graduate program offers students opportunities that they would not necessarily have at other institutions. The medical school provides students with access to material that other forensic programs do not have. From the very beginning, students are able to take classes that provide them with hands on experience in the field. Overall, my experience has been wonderful and I look forward to the rest of my time in this program.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

This program will be great preparation for an MD program. The program is very expensive, but hopefully the preparation it provides will be worth it.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

I think the curriculum is very well thought out, for the Economic Development and Tourism Management program within the Administrative Studies Department. I would only add an internship or work requirement, just because some students don't know what to do after they graduate, and seem to not have any professional experience.

Degree: Insurance
Graduation Year: 2016

I am just starting my online graduate program, and was a little nervous about seeing the number spots available for people to register in each class; was there going to be a class of 630 people? When I had a member of the graduate admissions office speak to me personally to let me know I had been accepted, I knew that this would be a different process then I might expect. I spoke with the financial aid office, and although it's sometimes high volume, the staff takes care of everything much faster than than the undergraduate staff. The management program benefits greatly from the money donated by alumni who have done well, and the quality of the education here, and their success, is a testament what can be achieved. The process of registration, knowing which class to choose, was made very easy. I was sent an acceptance letter and told which classes to register. For someone who is working full-time, nothing could be better.

Pros: Great school, incredible professors, great network, very close to great areas of Boston. Cons: Career Office is lacking, can be very competitive, very expensive to live near school, on campus housing is also very expensive

Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

The M.Eng program in BME is a fantastic, novel program where students are able to explore all aspects of the creation of biomedical devices/solutions. The program covers the development of a product all the way identifying the the problem to coming up with a business plan (with the help of students from the graduate school of management). The professors have done a great job of providing students with the resources necessary to create prototypes of their products. And these products are not typically just ideas developed for the sake of completing the exercise but products that could have a high potential of going to market and actually being able to make an impact in the field of biotechnology

The workload is intense, hardly providing any time for socializing. However, the skills taught by the graduate program are invaluable and will provide a boost to my career
