Student & Graduate Reviews

4.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros of going to FIU Law is that it is affordable and its slowly establishing a reputation. Also, the school is very new and the building is so modern and well taken care of. The ratio of students to professors is very good and professors are able to focus their attention on their students. The cons are that this school is so new that it has not fully created a concrete reputation, therefore, when looking for a job after graduating, it might be harder than if the person is coming from another school.

Degree: Finance
Graduation Year: 2014

FIU has some of the smartest, and well diversified teachers known throughout the country. They are all very welcoming, and edger to help each one of their students. The material can sometimes be a drag and a bit overwhelming but each professor has a certain way of making it enjoyable. I would recommend FIU to all students that want to learn and are willing to put in the effort to be successful.

Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2016

This is a hands-on short graduate program that allows you to grasp the professional basis of working in the museum environment. The resources of the school, community and faculty will set you on the right path for graduate research and the pursue of a full Master or Ph.D program anywhere in the world.

Degree: Performing Arts
Graduation Year: 2016

FIU is a good universioty with a somewhat diverse student demographic. The level of work is not as high as I would want it to be. Miami is not an easy city to live in, and public transportation is almsot non existent. On the other hand, profesosr have alwayls been extremely giving.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2011

The Masters in Public Administration program offered an insight into the world of our government as well as government-run programs that are generally used on daily. Admittedly, there was a theoretical approach used which does not necessarily prepare students for practical issues in the field. While I agree that theory is important and is a precursor to action, I do not believe the program in general fully integrated the two. Additionally, our government agencies is set up in such a way that experience may be more valuable than educational credentials. In other words, if one is already a government employee with potential upward mobility, an MPA would be perhaps more beneficial. If one intends to start a career in the public realm and hopes to accomplish this by earning an MPA, the climb may still be challenging and degree does not equate to upward mobility. Overall, however, the program had knowledgeable faculty and staff who were always willing to assist. The material relevant and the workload manageable.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2010

I feel very grateful of being an student at Florida International University. I had amazing professors who always had time to answer questions and mentoring me, open door policy its really a live saver. Diversity at the campus adds up to the quality of the experience I got at the University. The program relies on a superb faculty staff who is always ready and challenging you as a student in everyday class

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2013

Pros: -FIU provides an important foundation for students to get the most out of their undergraduate years. -Transition into higher education is made easier by your immediate association in any FIU organization with a small group of students and teachers with similar capabilities and aspirations -Your undergraduate experience is enhanced significantly by the broad liberal arts focus of the curriculum and the opportunity to work closely with experienced faculty from your first day on campus. -No cons.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Construction Management
Graduation Year: 2014

FIU offers a challenging masters program for Engineering students. they also give the option for students to take all their classes online rather than being present in class room. That helps a lot of students as well... All the professors at the department of Construction Management are helpful and always available to help the students in anyway they can.
4.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

Pros: FIU is a highly diverse and social campus! There is always something going on, and the school is a Hispanic Serving Institution, as well as a highly diverse student body. The research taking place at FIU is very innovative and exciting. With the recent addition of the Medical School and new buildings on campus, FIU is a young and growing academic institution. Cons: FIU is a commuter school so parking has always been an issue. Although FIU is a fully wireless campus, technology is not always up to date. Furthermore, the University can be disorganized at times in terms of disseminating information and/or updating policies, although this has improved greatly over the past five years.
