Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

This program is a fast pace program for students who are ready to get their masters while working. the faculty are well qualified, but the classes are no easy task. The workload sometimes seems impossible, but I got it done, so it's doable. I have no regrets in doing this program, and can't wait to finish.

Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2015

The graduate program seems to be focused on three things: teamwork, global and digital. I strongly believe that BU is putting me in prime position for an amazing career. The only con is the cost.

Degree: Religious Studies
Graduation Year: 2014

Boston University is an excellent institute of higher learning that provides cutting edge education, access to excellent transportation options and wealth of opportunity. However, it does have its cons in cost of living for graduate students, intense work load and at times lack of career development support.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2015

The affordability of living for a grad student is quite high because many students live in apartments throughout Boston which are very expensive. The school has a great facility with excellent resources and professors. Their scholarship opportunities are great and make school a lot more affordable. I would recommend this program to anyone!
