Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros of this graduate program include the flexibility of instructors and knowledgable faculty that are willing to assist students. The work load is considerate of students personal life and other stress factors. materials are up to date and relevant. The only cons of the program are the time slots in which courses are offered. classes are held very late and there are few options for morning or mid-day coures or weekend courses.

While my particular program and the faculty are excellent, the level of compensation given for assistantships is woefully inadequate, particularly when you take into account the high cost of living in Miami and the shoddy public transportation system.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

My graduate program allows for diversity and growth within my career field, but the overall affordability is high but much lower than its competitors schools. The downtown location fits right in the heart of the business environment.

Graduation Year: 2014

So far, this program has been everything I expected it to be and more. The faculty is extremely knowledgeable and most are active in their field. The workload is challenging, but not excessive, and so far, all of my professors have made themselves readily available to any concerns I may have had.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

This program is tailored for the working student. The program is eighteen months and is specialized to professionals within the field of Healthcare who would like to get an MBA. The cons of this program are the long hours on Saturdays and the facility in which it is held is forty minutes north of the main FIU campus.

The graduate program is very challenging but we have the opportunity to network with professors that have great experience in their field.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2013

I am exited about being in the Health Informatics & Management Systems program under the school of business. It is in high demand and will revolutionize the way electronic health records is managed and maintained. The cons of this field: it is a slow process in embracing this field especially in small healthcare practices. But, eventually it will be adopted and it will be inevitable to do this conversion. With this technology, the safety and security of patients and their records are the focus.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

I am in my first semester of grad school, and so far love my program. My colleagues are great, and the environment is collaborative with lots of opportunities to advance your research interests. The professors are somewhat available, but there isn't a huge mentorship focus from faculty. The only other area I feel truly at lack for is transportation options, which in Miami always tend to be lacking. But parking and campus parking authority are not terrible, which is nice. All in all, a beautiful and diverse campus that provides a great environment to learn.
