Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2018

DePaul University is a great business school, located near the business district in the city of Chicago. The school itself is not difficult to get into, and I think that takes away from the reputation it carries. Nonetheless, the classes, the location, the professors, and the students are all huge motivators for success. The classes are challenging and engaging, the location is inspiring and alive, the professors teach you real-life material using their own experiences, and the students all have a common understanding and goal to succeed in the business world. The MBA program is a great one, one that I believe is comparable to some of the best schools in the nation. The knowledge transferred from my professors to me as a student was invaluable, I truly feel like I am a stronger businessman coming out of there. My confidence, technical skills, communication skills, negotiation skills, among many others have improved substantially and I catch myself using much of the knowledge I acquired from my classes in my everyday life. All in all, I highly recommend DePaul University's graduate school to anyone looking to further their knowledge in one of the biggest industries in the world, increase their potential in the business environment, and build a strong network.

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2017

DePaul University has provided me the opportunity to gain among the most intellectually stimulating, diverse, and inherently robust educational experience as both an Undergraduate and Graduate student, with the entirety of the Chicago-land area as my campus. When I made the decision to transfer Universities as an Undergraduate, DePaul's transfer process was, by far, the most smooth and straight-forward. The support I received from admissions advisors and other transfer students was simply unparalled and upon arrival on my first day of orientation, I was taken by the ambiance and general charm of the DePaul community. The classroom sizes were small enough so that we were able to receive direct support from our professors, but large enough so classroom debates were often perpetuated by a variety of different perspectives. After completing my Bachelor's degree, I decided to pursue an MS in Economics and Policy Analysis (MSEPA). DePaul is one of the few Universities in Chicago that offers a joint BA/BS + MS degree program with professors that have firsthand experience in the careers that many of us students aspire to have post-graduation. Academically, we were introduced to not only theoretical aspects, but also the practicality of those theories that helped us gain skills that can easily be transferrable to a wide array of jobs. With both the DePaul Community and the Chicago area as our basis of networking, being recruited for highly competitive positions is also common among my peers. The MSEPA program is exceptional, in that it sponsors an annual trip to D.C to meet and learn from many different Staffers, Economists, Accountants, Consultants, and Policy Makers, several of which graduated from the same program in prior years. Overall, the experience I gained at DePaul and in the MSEPA program has changed my life and opened the doors to a wide range of possibilities. The opportunity to learn and grow in an academically rigorous, supportive, and diverse environment has truly been a remarkable experience and it has empowered me to pursue my ambitions, well beyond words.

Degree: Human Services
Graduation Year: 2016

Great location, great faculty, and wonderful networking opportunities. You have to take advantage of the study abroad, and career opportunities that are offered by the program in order to get the maximum benefit of the degree. The program is what you make it.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2016

I am currently attending DePaul University to receive my Master's of Human Computer Interaction. I believe the faculty is passionate about the subjects they teach and they give a lot of details and real world examples. The skills I will learn at the University will prepare me for Front End Web Development, Front End Mobile Development, User Experience Strategy and User Experience Research. Many UX professionals in the IT Chicago market get their degrees from DePaul. It is a good program for working adults and can be completed 100% online.

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2018

DePaul is one of the best universities. This is a right place who are looking for qualitative education. Supportive academic faculty members. Easy steps to get enrolled for international students, in particular, who are studying at English Language Academy. I would definitely recommend anyone who wants to go pursue their education.

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2017

So far, the DePaul program has been great. The department of Education seems to maintain a solid reputation within the area school systems, and I believe the connects that I gain will be valuable. The classes have been interesting and challenging.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2017

Pros: Amazing faculty. They are accessible and compassionate about student's education and quality of life. Student/Faculty community is unmatched compared to colleagues who attend other law schools. So many organizations to get involved, LARGE facility with so many resources, and students maintain a healthy, friendly, and competitive environment. Name recognition across the country was advantageous when networking out of state. Cons: Legal writing program is utter garbage. The curriculum needs some serious updating and the tenured professors lack personality and inspiration. They are bitter and condescending. This is completely contradictory to ALL the other professors I've taken, whom were charismatic, energetic, and have become mentors in my life. Would like to see more specialized classes in the overall curriculum. Nothing wrong with the classroom sizes now, but I would also like to see less students per class. Though I've never felt unsafe, security in the building lack's personality, motivation, and presence.

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2016

I enjoyed my graduate experience. However, it would be nice if courses were offered for more than just once per quarter. I am in school longer because of this.
