Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2006

I think college is important for some and not so much for others. As I saw from some of my classmates you take on tremendous debt. Make sure that college is indeed for you before you decide to take on that 4 years. If you do it will be some of the best 4 years of your life. You will grow, make great friends, have new experiences and start to mature.

Indiana University is a large and impersonal college; it's a good place to go if you have a strong idea what you want to do and are willing to do the work yourself to get it, but there's not much guidance if you don't.

Indiana University was a great place to learn and a beautiful city to live in. I studied under many well-known professors who had decades of experience in the field.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2017

The Kelley School of Business is an excellent program designed to immerse each student in a complete understanding of the business world, while also giving them the opportunity to improve their work standing via excellent career advising staff. The curriculum with their part time/ travel program is intensive, and their Connect week is a great way to dust off your business chops and give consulting a go. It is challenging, but why else would you be looking to get an MBA? I highly recommend Indiana University Kelley School of Business to anyone looking to further their study in business.

Overall my Ph.D. program made me well prepared to pursue a career in the sciences. My Ph.D. advisor was critical in this process and the courses that were required for my graduate program were overall very interesting and helpful to me in developing critical thinking skills.

Degree: Optical/Optometric Assistant
Graduation Year: 2019

The Indiana University School of Optometry has done a great job in preparing my classmates and me for our careers as future optometrists. The friendliness and availability of the instructors, the wide variety of patients we are able to see, and the close relationships of the students in my class have made me feel welcome, excited, and well-prepared to begin practicing as an optometrist. Bloomington, Indiana, the town where the university resides, has so much to offer as well. Coming from a private undergraduate college, it has been a new and exciting experience to live life on one of the big ten campuses; there is always something going on! I would greatly recommend this school to anyone seeking a career as an optometrist because we have some of the best training and experience in the nation! The classes are strongly clinically based (which I think is very important for a medical field institution), and have definitely prepared me to take on the challenges of meeting patient's needs. In addition, the school is one of the leading institutions in ocular related research, allowing students to observe the field from an entirely different perspective. It allowed me to work hands-on in a lab obtaining data from patients that will hopefully lead to new and improved methods of treatment in several of the biggest concerns in optometry today. Overall, IU has been an inviting and educational experience for me thus far. I have learned so much in such a short amount of time, but feel like I am more than well-equipped with the knowledge that I will need for my career. The school is a great place for optometry, as well as optometry-based research, and I have nothing but good things to say about the school and its optometry program.

Degree: MBA in Finance
Graduation Year: 2018

Kelley offers various courses and the quality of professor are amazing. The school staff are friendly and happy to offer any assistance. The network of alumni is great and helpful. However, the location of school is not so competitive which may be less attractive to employers. But the living expense is lower than that of big city and safer.

IU has well balanced programs and is a top school.
