Student & Graduate Reviews

1.4 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2019

The program, in its' current form, is an unorganized mess. The advisors have no idea about course electives, curriculum requirements, or changes. Often course curriculum will change (it has three times since starting the program) and the advisor will make you change courses, even though you entered in a different catalog year. It takes the advisor weeks to get back to you and registration sometimes closes before you can get the information you need or permission to enter a course. Each of the professors have different and varying expectations. Some courses have little to no work in them, to the point you have no idea what you are paying for. Other courses, the material is non-existent and the professors have expectations for what you are supposed to know, but what is not taught by the program. The practicum placements are atrocious. The field coordinator cannot figure out where to place people and most people have to find a placement on their own. If they do not, then they will not be able to move forward in the program. This often leads students to take practicum placements that are not conducive to their career goals. Additionally, course grading is all over the place. During the middle of the program, the professors decided they started wanting an Abstract on every paper, however no one informed the students and the refused to change the grades or offer feedback. In the professional practice / counseling courses, the feedback made absolutely no sense, as if someone with schizophrenia wrote it. At this point, I have no idea what I am paying for. I'm not sure if other MSW programs are like this, but almost everything in this program is lacking. If you have other options, please go to another program.

Degree: Library Science
Graduation Year: 2020

IUPUI is an excellent choice for those looking to earn their degree in Library and Information Science. The MLIS Program offers classes that are relevant to todays field, and the coursework does well to prepare students for future employment. As someone who has worked in public library systems for the last 15 years, I decided to take the next step in furthering my career by working towards my MLIS degree, and I am very pleased with how relevant the program course content is to real-life work experiences for librarians.
4.2 out of 5.0
Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2019

The Master of Accounting degree from the Kelley School of Business on the IUPUI campus is a phenomenal degree. The professors are top notch and prepare you for the public and corporate accounting world, in my opinion, better than most other graduate accounting degrees on other campuses. I would recommend this program to anyone that is serious about being at the top of the accounting profession.

Before going to college, make sure you are sure of what career you want to pursue, because it will be a waste of money if you don't.
