BU taught me more than content. In the city of Boston, I was exposed to different cultures and races. The work load was heavy but I was dedicated to earning good grades and the professors were always helpful.

Boston University is a large place; I was in the science journalism masters program, which is quite small and insular. The academic level was OK.

Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2020

Boston University's School Counseling Master's program provides a small, tight-knit cohort that you attend most of your classes with. The instructors are very accessible and want to make sure you're getting the most out of the program. Overall satisfied with my experience so far.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2019

I am a part of the Part-Time Evening MBA program at Questrom School of Business at BU. The program has its ups and downs. In particular, professors come from a mix of academia and private industry. This can be hit and miss. Sometimes you have a professor with an unbelievable resume who has excellent advice and examples while relating the material to you; other times you have a professor who may not be very well-suited to teaching. The major benefits of the program come from your classmates, the networking opportunities, and the career center. In a half hour with a consultant at the career center, I learned more about job hunting and resume design than I had in twenty-four years of life. Additionally, you will have countless opportunities to attend events at school throughout the semester where you can meet a lot of guest speakers as well as other students. Those students are a tremendous resource to you, and you will have a lot of chances to spend time with them as social life at Questrom is well respected. Overall, I have greatly increased my utility at work due to what I learned in class. I have changed companies since joining the program and have advanced my career thanks to the advice I received from the Career Center. I would recommend BU to anyone interested in a business degree.
