Marquette University is offering a part time Master of Business Administration program that's tailored to my needs while I work a full time job in the process. Marquette's MBA program presents great opportunities for growth and advancement within my company.

Degree: Nurse Practitioner (Adult-Gerontology Acute Care)
Graduation Year: 2018

Marquette University has provided an exceptional opportunity for me to better my life. They have listened to any concerns and have adapted accordingly in order to assist us. The professors are outstanding, the communication is excellent and the convenience of online classes combined with on the ground training is tremendous. It is truly a pleasure to be able to represent Marquette .
4.4 out of 5.0
Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2019

Marquette University became my home away from home. I was blessed to be apart of the Athletic Training program and Physical Therapy program. Both programs provided me with an outstanding curriculum that pushed me to become a better clinician and better person. I began clinical work right away, which was great to apply what I learned in the classroom to real life scenarios. Marquette not only had great academic programs, it also has great clubs and organizations on campus to help students grow and meet new people.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2018

Beautiful campus and great location. The campus is close to Downtown where there is so much to do and so much to see. I like the class sizes as well. Every student has an opportunity to really get to know their instructors. The academic material is also challenging enough to encourage thinking. Its just a little difficult to become involved as a graduate student but otherwise great overall experience.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2019

I am a current graduate student at Marquette University and I am thus far very impressed with the program. It truly values reflection and understanding what it takes to become a counselor. I find that the clinical mental health program has challenged me nearly as much personally as it has academically. We have a high licensing rate and high test scores, but I also feel that those that go here end up becoming very well rounded. I would highly recommend this program to prospective counseling students.
3.8 out of 5.0
Degree: Human Resources
Graduation Year: 2019

I loved my program at Marquette. Great professors, great city, great academics. It isn't in a a college town so be prepared for that if you go there. The campus isn't in the best neighborhood but it is worth it for the Jesuit ideals and great people and professors.
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Engineering
Graduation Year: 2011

Overall I liked the small classroom sixes with a good mix of technology. The new engineering building makes significant improvements to the learning experience and provides numerous benefits. Most of the professors are very helpful and want to see you excel, and are willing to help in any way possible. The location is great, close to downtown, which has its benefits and drawbacks, but overall its a great school.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Dentistry
Graduation Year: 2019

Marquette University school of Dentistry is a great place for Dental education. It has very motivated and well accomplished faculty which is committed to train the students and to help them achieve excellence in the field. Graduate level programs are well equipped for advanced training in the chosen speciality. The school provides ample opportunities for academic progress, clinical skill development and research.
4.6 out of 5.0
Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2020

Great school for those looking for a university that is not too big and also not too small. Marquette truly feels like a community and a home away from home. It is located right in the heart of Milwaukee so there is always plenty to do outside of school work. Marquette itself offers a wide variety of extracurricular activities and clubs. The professors are very down to earth and care deeply about their students learning and well-being. Highly recommend to all looking for a place to attend college.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Exercise Science
Graduation Year: 2017

I was drawn to Marquette University because of my search for colleges during my senior year of high school. When I had decided on pursuing a Physical Therapy major, I was drawn to the Direct Admit program that Marquette offered. I was accepted and decided to attend this school. The campus is very compact but beautiful in its own right. In terms of the education offered, Marquette has its typical courses with giving Core of Common Studies and General Education to its students. When it came time to get into the PT program, that's when some concern came to light. The PT program is rigorous, but prides itself in being prestigious. While it has its high points and its distinction of a doctorate program. Classes have an artificial rigor that it gives us the appearance of difficulty as a graduate program. Grading scales make it almost impossible to get as close as a B, let alone get the required grade to pass in a program that requires us to get a certain grade and GPA per semester. Assessments of our performance tend to get very subjective and prove to be unfair. The past two semesters of my first year of the program has shown it to have this artificial rigor. However, I have heard and do expect the clinical rotation program offered will immerse us to closer to the real experience of being a PT. Despite these shortcomings, the program in itself cannot be perfect, but it does provide us the obstacles and opportunities that can present itself in the coming year. I like to compare my years here at Marquette to a funnel for how the academics were. The beginning of my years here was a funnel that had general education that exposed us to not only basic sciences and mathematics, but also faith based courses in Theology and Social Justice that exposed us to issues based in Milwaukee and other areas. As the years went on, those classes were over, but the values still were maintained in the subsequent courses. Even by this point in my graduate career, the values of Marquette still hold true even in my classes as a PT graduate student. Overall, I would do all my years in college back here again, because I couldn't imagine any other place that has provided a home for me to be comfortable and be challenged. What's better is that I'll still be here for the next two years to really cherish the influence of Marquette and to truly be the difference.
