Student & Graduate Reviews

3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2015

FIU's grad school allowed me to complete a masters degree while working full time. The professors are excellent. Students who are unable to be on campus every day are disconnected from the smaller groups pursuing graduate degrees. More funding options should be available for students paying out of pocket.

Pros of the graduate program are that there are great opportunities to form and join study groups among the other graduate students because most students are enrolled in the same classes. Cons of the graduate program are that some teachers are do not make themselves that avaliable to students via emails and office hours.

4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2013

I feel a pro to my graduate program is the amount of real-life and classroom experience that the professors have. The program is also very diverse, with a plethora of study abroad opportunities. A con is that the career development website isn't as strong as it could be, and it's often hard to find a job if you don't have specific industry experience, even though the school is located in the hotspot of Miami. I think that attending the school should hold a lot more clout with potential employers.
3.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Construction Management
Graduation Year: 2014

What is good with this program is that is really compititve But the biggest down side of it is that the school does not offer much scholarships to students for graduate studies
