Degree: MBA

Working on my MBA through the Kelley Direct Program at Indiana University. There are quite a few great instructors on this program, all the Professors respond quickly, provide great feedback and most courses are challenging! I am very happy with my choice for my MBA.

The Jacobs School of Music is without a doubt the country's premier school for voice. Every educational aspect of the program is to be lauded. From an administrative perspective, there are some failings. It is one of the largest music schools in the world, and thus it suffers from some side effects. Students refer to it as "The Factory" because they feel like their individual needs are not met, and they struggle to be treated as something more than a cog in the machine. MANY of the administrators are excellent. However, there is a general attitude that comes with having thousands and thousands of students that is a bit of a pill to swallow. All told, however, any serious vocalist would be unbelievably lucky to go to this school. Its faults are minor, in comparison to its incredibly long list of advantages.

IU is a great school and I am very happy with my education at Kelley. I am learning a lot of concepts that will make me a competitive candidate when interviewing. Overall, I am very happy I picked Kelley over other business schools.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2016

The ELPS program contains very well known professionals who have had years in the field and academic papers and books to support their contribution to the International and Comparative Education field. The courses have a heavy reading load that supplements the lesson of the day and provides insight on topics that would otherwise need longer discussion times. Career support is readily available with both the educators and the students, as all come from a variety of backgrounds and have unique specialties and experiences. Though the program is knowledgeable in educational policy given its professors' backgrounds, it would be helpful if they integrated a mandatory graduate assistantship in a office dealing with international students and affairs or a semester studying abroad. The surrounding area is cut off from major cities leaving students with limited professional advancement opportunities and interactions with other cultures. Also, the program is mainly policy. Internationalization is starting to become a main focus of higher education institutions, the program could benefit if they added more courses that focused on study abroad and exchange issues since the university itself is interested in recruiting students from other countries.

What I especially like about my program is that everything that has been taught so far has been taught so that it will have real-world application. I use the things in learn in my career on a daily basis.

The pros are that it is very fulfilling and is a top ranked program. The faculty is amazing and very helpful and everything is within walking distance. The cons are that the textbooks are incredibly expensive as is the price of tuition

So far I have enjoyed my experience in this Public Health Masters Program at Indiana University. I feel as though I have learned a significant amount and I am excited to learn more. The professors are kind and willing to help, and my academic advisor is wonderful.
