Florida International is smaller in size and popularity than most of the 4 year universities in the state, yet they offer a wide variety of majors and professions and have become more competitive with many of the neighboring schools.

Degree: Architecture
Graduation Year: 2017

Despite being a commuter school, FIU manages to meet the standards of your ideal college experience. From orientation into the college life to your journey entering adulthood, you are prepared to take on all challenges that come your way. Entering my first year and being an out of state student, I was unsure on what to do and where to go. FIU provided me with mentors and other leaders in campus to show me the ropes. These club/student Leaders invited to on-campus events that allowed me to network with other students like me, and other student Leaders and organizations that would help me throughout my college years. Little did I know that these experiences earlier on would set me up for a promising future! I am now in pursuit of my masters in architecture, working at a firm that has been awesome for the past 2 years while still being able to remain active in my fraternity!

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2018

Florida International University has done a superb job at providing students with a well-rounded globally focused education. After receiving my B.A. degree from FIU, I decided to also pursue my MBA here , due to the excellent programs, rigorous coursework, and global mindset. FIU prepares students to be successful within their communities, but to have an open mind for diversity. The school hosts a variety of speakers, with President Obama being one of the most recent guests. There are many opportunities for career advising, networking, and weekly (sometimes more) workshops to prepare students to be successful in the workforce. Business students have access to Career Management Services which provide opportunities to review/write resumes, practice interviewing skills, and meet with potential employers. Companies will often contact career services and recruit current FIU students, over posting a public ad.

Degree: Nutrition
Graduation Year: 2016

The Nutrition and Dietetics Program at Florida International University is superb! I completed both my Bacherlor of Science and my Master of Science in their program and am currently working on my PhD. The faculty is brilliant, organized and understanding and the campus is absolutely beautiful and offers many amenities for the students. For anyone interested in studying nutrition, FIU is the way to go!

Degree: Engineering Management
Graduation Year: 2017

Florida International University is a growing University. It isn't well known for many people outside Florida but it is a University that will be ranked a top 20 school in a couple of years. I graduated with My EE degree and i have to say it was a really good program and learned a lot to prepare myself after graduation. I recently enrolled again to pursue my Masters Degree in Engineering Management and I have to say the program is currently on of a kind if you are pursuing anything Management within you career it is a program that help you get to that level quickly and professionally.

FIU is a multicultural, rigorous, and professional learning space. There are many opportunities to get involved in the community and prepare for your career. Professors are invested in your learning and there are ample campus resources for every individual and situation. I am pursing my second degree from this University and couldn't be more satisfied!

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2016

Biology major at FIU may be rigorous but it so worth it at the end of the day with the great professors at FIU. Professors actually care for there students and students feel welcomed to ask questions. Professors even provide students with extra office hours if necessary

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2017

I feel blessed to have earned both merit and financial need based scholarships to attend Florida International University. As I continue to pursue a specialized graduate degree, I appreciate any opportunity to receive necessary funding. The pros of my masters in public healthcare policy are the quality of education and networking events available to educate the student body. We are constantly invited to seminars keeping us inspired to network and understand the current challenges of healthcare delivery beyond the classroom. Exposing us to extra insight strengthens my commitment to excellence fueling me to apply the knowledge to each healthcare sector I service.

Degree: Construction Management
Graduation Year: 2017

I think the graduate program at FIU is great because of the ability to work and go to school. Other universities don't have as many professional job options because they aren't in big cities. So getting real job experience and getting an education is much easier at FIU. The cons is that there isn't a lot of funding options for graduate students. While other schools to give grants to those who had a high GPA in undergrad.
