Degree: ESL
Graduation Year: 2016

This graduate program is excellent and very appealing to students all over the world. It is a little expensive for international students though, and I would like to have financial aid based on grades.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2016

I am truly enjoying the Professional MBA Program at FIU. The College of Business provides great customer service and understands the need of working professionals pursuing an MBA. The course work is difficult, but rewarding and enjoyable. Over all I'm thrilled with my experience in the MBA program at FIU.

Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2016

FIU's campus is beautiful and relatively small so it is easy to walk from one class to the next. The emergency response system is very effective, making the campus feel very safe. In the event of any emergency or police activity, each student receives an email, text message, and phone call to alert them of the situation. Most of the buildings are very new, which is reflected in the architectural style and technological capabilities. The campus is very active, too! There's some kind of event happening each day of the week, especially at the beginning and end of each semester. The faculty and staff of the Asian Studies program are incredibly knowledgeable, friendly, passionate, and approachable. I've noticed that the professors, when faced with a unique or difficult situation, are very understanding and flexible. The program is very active in FIU's social life, as well, and sponsor several events each semester. There are two main issues with the program: (1) too few graduate student- specific courses (many courses are a mixture of undergraduate and graduate students), and (2) the lack of a professional development component. One the second point, the graduate students that have been recruited to the program are valuable sources of knowledge.

Degree: Finance
Graduation Year: 2015

Offers practical and current knowledge in specific areas but some material is outdated and therefore not useful to industry professionals.

Degree: Journalism
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: The campus is beautiful and the tuition is reasonable for in-state students. The teachers are knowledgable and approachable. The student life is great and I love the diversity, especially within the latino community. I feel very welcome studying here. Cons: For out of state students like myself it is quite expensive. The graduate program of journalism needs some work, especially in terms of the support of students who do not have a communications background and come from other careers. Overall: FIU is a very welcoming university, and I will be proud to be a graduate from this institution in the future.

Degree: International Business
Graduation Year: 2015

The particular program I'm enrolled in is great due to the fact that is on a year long. The program in an accelerated Masters in International Business. The program consist of the same students throughout the year attending the course. That can be very beneficial when it comes to group work as you get to know the people in your class for a prolonged period of time. The things that have been difficult for me is mainly dealing with the Veteran Affairs office. I started this program August 2014 and I have had several issues with Tuition Assistance. Another con is the fact that the program is not fully covered by the Montgomery GI Bill. I have in state tuition and each class is costing me $2750 dollars. I was not informed that tuition would not be fully covered until a few weeks before class started.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

Although most business programs offer similar alternatives, teaching methods and approaches to decision making, it is the people what really sets the schools apart. Thus, I am part of the Florida International University because I am looking for a school that offers a solid core in business management and strong functional areas in finance, but above all I am looking for a diversity in the student composition, for an experienced faculty, and for an environment that will offer me rich exchange of ideas and critical issues that face working managers. I have led a very interesting academic, professional and personal development, so I feel I am contributing to the diversity of your program in many ways. I like the contact with the people in different activities and environments and I have ability to integrate in groups or facilitate their constitution. I also have experience in sharing time with intercultural and interracial groups. Moreover, I like the fact that Florida International University's MIB program is broad and flexible, encouraging intellectual risk-taking and teamwork as the ideal means to learn from one another in a cooperative classroom setting. I also appreciate the fact that the faculty encourages students to stretch themselves and to reach beyond their previous experiences, challenging what they know and could improve upon, and to move on to new approaches.
