Student & Graduate Reviews

5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Executive MBA
Graduation Year: 2018

The range of courses that Fairleigh Dickinson University offers for the Executive MBA program has enabled me to acquire a more in depth knowledge base of managerial skills, and apply those skills towards the growth of my career. The classes are offered on Saturdays from 8:30am-4:30pm with an hour break for lunch, so there's no need to rush to get to class after work fighting through rush hour traffic. I found this to be extremely convenient for my work schedule, which tends to be late hours during the week. The program has also been great for networking opportunities, as both the students and faculty come from top companies in the NJ area, which is also an added benefit.
2.08 out of 5.0
Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2016

The program is not as difficult or demanding as I thought it would be. I do not feel as though I got out as much as I could from it because subjects were either rushed over and topics were not discussed in the depth they should. Most professors would give good grades to products that should not have received such high marks. Few comments were supplied to students so that improvements could be made Also, the school is very expensive and my academic scholarship ended during my fifth graduate year even though I received help during my four undergraduate years.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

Fairleigh Dickinson University is a great school with welcoming faculty who strive to motivate and challenge their students. The small class sizes allow for great one-on-one interaction between students and faculty. Moreover, the various campus activities, dining locations, clubs and career opportunities help to promote well-rounded students.
4.08 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros: The Clinical Mental Health Counseling program is a CAACREP accredited program with a structured curriculum that puts you on the right track if you want to become an LPC. The faculty is extremely helpful, supportive of their students, and truly show that they care. The cons: Being that FDU is a private institution, tuition is pretty expensive if you are not planning to apply for FAFSA loans.
1.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2016

Absolutely horrified by the financial aid office and their blunders. Program advertised a false amount of available financial aid to students causing students to scramble for alternative loan sources after 1.5 years of study in a 4 year program. New program is still finding its ground, several professors are absolutely brand new to teaching which raises the question on quality of faculty. 3 Faculty have already quit in the programs 1.5 years of existence. School building is not on the actual university campus, rather it is an office building which they rent out across the street--completely segregated from campus life. FDU does not have many extracurricular activities or groups for graduate students, more catering to undergraduate liberal arts majors.
