Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2016

I am very pleased with my choice to attend CPP for grad school. They have a very helpful faculty. It's a great value-program (tuition/fees are currently about $2,700/quarter) and the work keeps me stimulated. My math skills have improved drastically as a result of being in the program (this is what I was hoping for most), and I'm excited by the thought of future coursework. I've found the workload to be very fair- it keeps me busy with a little burn-out here and there, as expected. It has been everything I was hoping for, coming in. Apart from the program, I enjoy the campus very much. It's a big ag and engineering school with a lot of diversity. There are a lot of nice Foothill LA cities nearby with relatively inexpensive rent (less than LA or OC).

Cal Poly Pomona is a very inexpensive school especially for what you get. It is also a very beautiful school with multiple gardens which you can enjoy your stay at.

Degree: Nutrition
Graduation Year: 2016

The Masters in Nutrition program at Cal Poly Pomona is great! The program will prepare each student in a way that fosters the learning of the whole person and prepares the student to face the realities of challenges of the "real world".

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2016

I love Cal Poly! I did my undergrad work here and had a rewarding and wonderful time! There are staff members there that will drop what they are doing to help you with anything and help you attain your goal. There is one professor that I have come in contact with that does not meet that standard, but having one out of all of the others is pretty good! I am happy to be taking my graduate program here due to its closeness to where I live, cost, and the support and student life offered on campus!

Degree: Mechanical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

Regardless of the school you are doing your Master's in Engineering Management, the program is beneficial for students having engineering backgrounds. Because business and management related aspects are introduced to these students.This program is mostly designed for people who are already working in industry and for me as an international student who should enroll full-time and does not work, the expenses are incredibly high. Cal Poly Pomona gives lots of aids to under-graduate students but not to graduate students. Its career center is slow on networking with companies. There's been months passed that they have not updated their jobs pages in their career center website.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2014

The motto of Cal Poly Pomona is "Learn by Doing", and the Urban and Regional Planning program at Cal Poly Pomona teaches students applied skills that will prove to be vital experience in future career endeavors.

The program is really rewarding and the staff/instructors always go the extra mile to help out. Easy workload and manageable.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: I got to return to the school I received my Bachelors Degree from. Easy access to classes and instructors. Hands-on learning. Cons: Class scheduling needs work. Most Masters students have regular full-time day jobs. The dept needs to take that into account and offer more evening classes.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

I feel one definite pro for the Hospitality Management Graduate program is that the professors are really invested in helping their students pursue a career in the area that interests them. Student to professor ratio is great with classes from 10-15 students. The network at Cal Poly Pomona is also very good. The school puts on networking events to help their students connect with alumni in the industry they want to pursue. One con that I have found so far is that the majority of my program is made up of International students. Domestic students are definitely the minority.
