Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

My graduate program has a great networking base, and the administration is adamant to help students achieve academic and career goals. This is a very prestigious program that I am excited to be a part of, but with prestige comes expense. Unfortunately it will be costly in the long run to obtain my masters degree from this institution.

Degree: Systems Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

The curriculum is very challenging. Many, many long nights working through homeworks. At the end, however, the content enables me to find useful applications in the real-world. I am an engineer and have rapidly gained efficiency and deeper insight in my career as a direct result of this curriculum. The projects are often deep and relevant. There are many connections to the outside world enabling our work to be noticed by people capable of providing great opportunities. One thing about online classes is that we're integrated with real classes and held to the same expectations. We work occasionally with on-campus students, and I would recommend making a very strong first impression, otherwise the teamwork is difficult. I've always had good interactions with on-campus students, and I have only heard of bad interactions. So just attend to a solid relationship from the start, offer to them what you can do at a distance. Also, the on-campus students are looking for work, and so in your introductions, tell them where you work. That is incentive to work with you. Overall, this program has been a fantastic experience. The professors all have a good deal of experience and can easily relate the classroom to the real world. If you enjoy rigorous curriculum, challenging projects, and a head full of useful knowledge with a strong sense of how to practice the knowledge, this is an ideal program for you.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

The full-time MBA program at Cornell University is a very respected one. It provides a rigorous curriculum and access to a huge network from the university. Students are driven and push themselves harder everytime while also helping each other. The Office of Diversity & Inclusion (ODI) is very engaged with very respected and structured programs, such as The Consortium, NSHMBA, and NBMBAA among others to support and promote diversity in the school as well as in the workplace.

Degree: Electrical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2018

The Electrical Engineering program at Cornell University is well-supported and well-recognized for the quality experience and education it provides to its students. The students themselves are engaged and find their way to their passion within Electrical Engineering to complete their PhD. The social life of students is quite alive, though Ithaca is a small town - especially during the winter when it's cold! The faculty are also generally accessible and approachable, though they can be quite busy and hard to get a hold of at certain times of the year! Graduate school here is quite difficult, but if a graduate degree is something you want and something you're willing to work hard for, this is a rewarding place to work for it.
