Degree: Marketing
Graduation Year: 2017

The Kelley School of Business has fantastic faculty, graduate career services, and admissions team members. Bloomington is an affordable town and offers a reasonable cost of living when compared to other top-ranked MBA program locations. It is a highly ranked school by Businessweek and is especially renowned for its Consumer Marketing program. I am very excited to pursue my MBA at Indiana University.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2017

I have been to many different schools during my academic career, including a Bachelors, Masters, and Docotorate. I can honestly say that the Kelley School of Business has been the most rewarding academic experience I have ever been a part of.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

The online MBA program is a great opportunity for those who are in the workforce to go back to school. There are several on-campus weeks for students to get to know the faculty and each other. Everything else is online, so it is easier to go to school and continue working at the same time. I don't think the fact that it is online has in any way lessened the value of the program. I got just as much, if not more, out of this online program than I did from my traditional undergraduate degree program.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

***Pros: great on-campus immersion weeks, flexibility - ability to customize program to fit your needs, high quality faculty who grade and provide feedback on assignments and exams themselves, study abroad opportunities, active student clubs and community, annual in-person networking events, enough group projects to meet lots of classmates, constantly improving, great value for a top 20 global brand, same degree as full-time program. Cons: you have to take initiative to network by joining student associations, attending networking events, participating more during group projects and immersion weeks - there are lots of opportunities for those who want to network, but you don't see your classmates everyday. ***Disclaimer: I am a current MBA & MS in Business Analytics student who started working for the Kelley Direct program in the middle of my MBA (as of 2014). I left my job in Chicago to go work for this program in Indiana because of the positive experience I had and am very happy I did.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2016

The course work is excellent and the professors are very supportive. Personally, I have found my cohort to be the same way. The library is fantastic and there is a wide variety of classes from which to choose. The European Studies program is very flexible. As long as you pursue something related to that and fulfill the general requirements, you can pretty much design your own program. The reason I gave the school a low rating on safety is because there have been a lot of rapes on or nearby campus. I realize this is a problem nationwide however. Bloomington on a whole seem quite safe. The town itself is very pretty. The campus is gorgeous, but it does have a small-town feel to it, although there are cool, smart people all around you. There are concerts, ballet and opera at the school. One drawback is the diversity, as a state school in the middle of Indiana, there are a lot of white people, but on a positive note, I do not perceive much racism. Everyone seems to get along well as far as I can tell. If you look hard enough, you will discover an alternative, underground culture here.

Degree: Non-Profit Management
Graduation Year: 2016

Because the online program is fairly young, there are some challenges still being worked through with the resources available to the online students, courses offered/timeline, etc. However, for the most part, the class experiences are competitive and will equip me to be successful within the field.

Degree: English

The Ph.D. Composition & TESOL program is a great program that prepares you for a teaching career. The professors are very supportive and they make sure that you are aware of current research trends within the field.

Degree: School Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

Indiana University is located in the wonderful Bloomington, Indiana. I have been blessed to attain a graduate assistantship this year through the Early Childhood Center at the Indiana University Institute on Disability and Community. Our faculty are great and love our field. I wish that we had more funding within our program and that our faculty were more actively engaged in research.

Degree: Performing Arts
Graduation Year: 2018

Pros: Jacobs school attracts unparalleled talent, and offers the optimal experience for performance. Cons: The funding packages available for voice doctoral candidates are very limited. The coursework in voice literature is not very scholarly (rather simplistic), and there are no acting classes available.
