Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2019

The Boston University Questrom MBA has been instrumental in my work. I am able to utilize the excellent concepts taught by distinguished faculty in my day to day work. The courses have given me a broadened perspective on the challenges faced at a managerial level.
4.6 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

Boston University is a great school and the Masters of Social Work program is ranked one of the best in the country for a reason. The program is very rigorous, but it is worth it for the amount of clinical material/ experience you will receive throughout your education. The field department is also very helpful in getting you clinical field education that fits your goals for your future career. Highly recommend

The BU School of Education is a strong program. Many of the faculty and instructors have been deeply invested in the field of education both as practitioners and academics. This provides a healthy balance of theory and practice. My time in this program has been well spent, as I have learned a tremendous amount from my professors and feel 100% supported as an educator.
4.2 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2017

BU's School of Public Health offers a great graduate program that helps to prepare you for a career in public health. The certificate system allows for you to gain multiple sets of skills, and able to handle real world issues. Every class I've taken at this school has in some way held value for me, even if it did not particularly contribute to my concentration. There's always something to learn that is interesting and relevant to health care today. The epidemiology and biostatistics programs in particular help you to develop concrete skills in research and data analysis.

I believe that experiencing diversity prepares students for work in todays global society and Boston University gives you that exposure. BU's emphasis on service learning gives you the skills and knowledge to serve underserved populations. Moreover, BU's state of the art facilities and quality of faculty are truly exceptional.

Very nice program. Communication sometimes bad, usually on the instructor's part not the schools.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2013

College is a great time to explore academics interests, mature, and to build the skills you will need for the rest of your life. At the same time, there is still a lot of learning to be done after graduation and you can always change your path post graduation. College is an important time, but it is not the MOST important time.

BU was a great academic school with multiple majors to choose from that provided you with the necessary skills and knowledge to achieve in the real world.

It was a good experience but I wish I had done more research and introspection into how well the program fit what I was looking for before I enrolled.
