Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2018

Decent School, I think they can work on the overall school diversity and making students feel as though they are welcome better.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2018

The best part about FIU's DPT program so far is the competitiveness of admissions. I know that I am in a program that will prepare me for my future as a physical therapist because it chose me and my 54 fellow classmates from thousands of applicants. I feel confident in the program's ability to help me succeed through school, as well as in the work force after graduation.

The graduate program is very competitive, but also provides networking with different private companies and state agencies. The Chemistry and Forensic program at FIU has valuable professors that can excel the career of any student.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2019

Pros: Our program is very diversified in the sense that it is offered jointly by the Chemistry, Biological Sciences and the Medical College Departments at FIU. Therefore, our students are allowed to choose a PI from any of these departments. Pros: The coursework is supplementary to our research. Pros: Our program faculty and coordinators truly care about our success and are always there to talk to us. Cons: It is a 5 year program, allow that is the norm.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2016

The MBA dual degree at FIU is a very prestigious and rigorous program, but it is worth it. The FIU program consists of students representing nearly 26 nations who are deep into their careers (own businesses, future CEO's, Manages, etc) and a small portion are newly graduated students with a degree from their home country. Like the other MBA programs, most of the major assignments are done in groups. If you're not used to working with others this can be a con, because not only will you have to work together but you also have to overcome opposing persoalities and different way of thinking. The curriculum incorporates a 360 degree view of the domestic & international business market. You are exposed to Harvard Business School case studies and real-world scenerios in which you are assigned a company, in your last semester, and have to solve a current business problem. Throughout this program you will hone already existing skillsets and learn new ones that will be applicable in the business market, regardless if you seek an Economics, Marketing, Finance, or Consulting position.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

The Masters of Global Governance(MAGG) Program helps improve one's public speaking, and analytical writing skills. The Program covers a wide range of interesting topics. Everything we learn is practical and can be easily applied in several fields. The course load is heavy, but I feel that is a good thing, because then we are getting our money's worth. My Program Coordinator has given my cohort many opportunities to network. Unfortunately, the university of FIU doesn't offer many scholarships in my field of study for Graduate Students. Otherwise, FIU and the MAGG Program are great!

FIU is my dream school. I am elated to be a part of a program that lives its socially conscious values to the extent that HWCOM does.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2020

This program blew me away with the work experience, content knowledge and genuine warmth of the professors. In addition, they understood what it meant to be a graduate student who had to juggle a job at the same time. Cons were very minimal and limited mostly to the support staff of the university as a whole--which is largely unrelated to the actual graduate program.
