Degree: MBA in Organizational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2019

Fuqua has been an incredible experience thus far. The students, staff, faculty, and alumni embody the collaborative values of Team Fuqua, which is exuded to anyone that interacts with them outside of the program. In addition, the academic rigors of the program combined with the C-Lead teams have increased the breadth and perspective of thought in our education.

The Fuqua School has been an incredible, collaborative experience. The admissions staff, staff, faculty, alumni, and students have been incredibly helpful in negotiating my career switch.

Duke University School of Medicine has been a wonderful place to learn and grow as a future physician. The facilities and faculty are world-class, and the financial aid at this program is extremely generous to all who need it. The culture on campus is extremely inclusive and the focus on interdisciplinary programs has been growing year after year. If you are interested in innovation of any kind, Duke University is the place to be.

Degree: Nurse Practitioner (Adult-Gerontology Primary Care)
Graduation Year: 2017

You get what you pay for! Duke University is the Ivy League of the South, and anyone who is accepted would be a fool to turn it down. The instructors are extremely knowledgeable in their field (almost intimidating) and yet still very approachable. All of the instructors are invested in ensuring each student has what they need to succeed. I am very impressed with the education I am receiving, and the networking opportunities are impressive also!!

Degree: Religious Studies
Graduation Year: 2019

Duke has been amazing so far. We have had the opportunity to engage in both rigorous academic pursuits as well as the community which surrounds Duke. The professors are extremely knowledgeable, if not experts, in their fields of study, and the student population is as diverse as any training minister could ask for.

Degree: Biomedical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2018

Duke University is an excellent place to conduct graduate studies as long as you identify a great mentor. Duke has many excellent PIs to do your training under. Some departments are rather decentralized and that can be a bit socially isolating. Durham is a fine town, but it is not a large city and a lot of city life is missing. Durham is largely not walkable and bicycling is hit or miss; crime, lack of street lamps, and lack of sidewalks is a large deterrent from walking. Public transportation is okay, but nothing like an alternative commute friendly city has to offer. Overall though graduate school is about your thesis work and Duke has a lot of great support for that.

Great school for earning a seminary degree. Difficult program, but challenging. Duke really attempts to prepare you academically and ministerially.

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2017

Duke's Sanford School really challenges students and pushes them to do their best. Faculty are more than willing and available to help students throughout not just their studies but the entire process of completing a graduate degree. Many professors have urged students, even if they are not struggling, to come and visit them during office hours. Faculty genuinely want to get to know each of their students on a personal level. Unfortunately, those students who are recently (within the past 5 months) who completed an undergraduate degree are at a severe disadvantage in obtaining financial aid from Duke. However, this greatly depends on where they completed their undergraduate degree.
