Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2019

Jacksonville University has a completely online program for a Master's in Nursing. I am currently working full time. Being able to work from home and avoid a commute allows me to allocate time to studies and other responsibilities. There is extra stress on using time carefully when taking on the challenge of graduate studies. I do contract work that can require me to travel across the country. Knowing that I can go to school without needing to find a position that is based in one location has granted me flexibility in my life decisions, especially as a newlywed. The admissions process is simple; it requires a short personal statement, paperwork, and two recommendations.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2019

I felt the degree is preparing me for the next step in my career. With 8 week classes, the material is coming at you very quickly, but it is not overwhelming. There is enough time to get the work done that needs done and plenty of time to see what is due next. The online instructors are quality and grade appropriately and are not overly picky about minor inconsequential things.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017

Jacksonville University offers a supportive and career focused environment. I graduated from the undergraduate BSN program and had a job within days after taking the state certification exam. The connections JU has within the community is remarkable. To obtain a master's degree in nursing, and eventually a doctorate's, I knew JU was my first choice. JU is known for not only outstanding health care professionals, but also degrees in aviation, marine science, business, education, engineering, and much more.

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2016

Jacksonville University's MBA program is continuously growing. The faculty and administration at JU are friendly and extremely helpful; it is a small school so they know all the students which enhances the educational value of the program. The only con of the school is that financial aid and scholarship opportunities are lacking and the surrounding area is not safe.

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2016

Jacksonville University's MBA program has been on the rise for the past several years and is continuing to grow at an exponential rate. The faculty and administration is unlike any other in their care for their students. They genuinely want to see their students succeed and will help them in any way needed. The MBA program is ranked in the top 50 internationally. The only cons of the MBA program at Jacksonville University is the lack of financial help for graduate students at the university.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros of being in the graduate program at Jacksonville University is the multiple graduate programs that they offer. JU offers a 12 month full time daytime accelerated program, a flex program, as well an executive MBA program for students. This gives students the opportunities to work their easily find the best MBA program for their schedule. The school also offers four MBA concentrations; management, accounting, marketing, and economics. The only con about JU's MBA program is that the school does not offer students many scholarships at the graduate level. There are multiple assistantships however it is hard for working graduate students to apply for these assistantships.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2017

The faculty and administration of my graduate program are extremely student centered. Snacks and meals are included in my tuition which is really convenient (one less thing to worry about). The con of my program is that I travel from another city to participate in it. However, that also shows the quality of the program since I am willing to travel, by plane, to be a part of this program.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015

One of the issue is the lack of participants sometimes. Some of the cohort programs offered off campus gets canceled sometimes due to lack of applicants. I would encourage stronger advertisement for the school because the school itself and the graduate program offered at Jacksonville University are excellent.
