Student & Graduate Reviews

5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

They offer an online only program. It's great for Full-time workers.
4.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

My program is fairly new and this can make it slightly difficulty to for faculty to communicate efficiently with everyone in the cohort. The upside to this is that because of the limited staff for the new program, we have a small group and the attention is individualized. Our counselors and advisors are wonderful people that are genuinely interested in each student's success during and after the program.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2017

The Part-Time MBA program at CSUEB is awesome! I was attracted to it due to the affordability and AACSB accreditation
4.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Anthropology
Graduation Year: 2015

So far, the professors have been great. They are supportive and very knowledgeable. As a mother of a toddler, I am very happy that I am able to take many classes online. One downside of campus life is that it seems completely geared towards young adults, while the campus itself is known to be a commuter school with a high percentage of older students. Otherwise, I think CSUEB is a terrific and affordable institution for one to pursue a graduate degree.
4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2016

The professors are highly knowledgeable and know how to prepare students for the real world. The program places student teachers in great schools with excellent master teachers. The administration is unorganized and schedules change at the last minute every quarter.
3.58 out of 5.0

2.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros of the graduate program are that the faculty is incredibly supportive and helpful towards the students in making sure they become qualified speech pathologists. The faculty really wants the students to succeed, and does whatever possible to help them. The cons are that the graduate program is currently undergoing some change, with hiring new lecturers and professors. Because of that, two of our classes this quarter have become partial hybrid/online classes, which makes it difficult sometimes to get all the information that we need to learn about the topic. The school itself is very diverse, with people of mixed ethnicities and religions. However, my cohort is predominantly Caucasian, and does not lend itself to a diverse community.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

I enjoy the diversity of my program, I do not enjoy the location or the size of the campus although, that is not a factor that is so easily changeable.
4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2015

The MA Econ program in CSUEB is a very young one. We have young and energetic professors from top universities teaching here. They have the a lot of passion for their careers and students.
3.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

I enjoy my Graduate Program. When I speak to other MSW student I find they do not have the support and emphasis on diversity training nor the small class size that I have. The only cons I have found are with my school's financial aid department and difficulties with parking and transportation.
