Degree: Nutrition
Graduation Year: 2019

I began pursuing my Master's online in the winter of 2016, after almost 20 years post Bachelor's. I have 7 classes left to complete the program. The staff and faculty, including all student assistants have been wonderful to work with. They have made the transition back to student status very easy. The online format of this program is wonderful for people that are currently employed full time, that wish to further their education. A couple of the classes have had a live chat component each week, which allows for interaction with classmates, and is a great enrichment tool. I highly recommend this program and method of study for anyone wishing to pursue a Master's Degree.

Degree: Veterinary Science
Graduation Year: 2019

Michigan State University is a very large land grant school with many strong graduate and doctoral programs. I was drawn to the veterinary school for a number of reasons. First, the curriculum, faculty, and administration are world-renowned. In my opinion, this should not be a significant deciding factor in terms of selecting veterinary programs, though it is an attribute I want to point out . An important area that distinguishes Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine (MSU CVM) from the rest is the quality of education and unique opportunities the school offers. An crucial factor in assessing the quality of education of a program that is not often highlighted is whether students experience an inclusive and welcoming environment that best facilitates learning. The administration at MSU CVM work tirelessly to create just that-- a place where students spend time focusing on their studies rather than feeling out of place, isolated, etc. Any veterinary program that tells you it has achieved a perfect state of inclusion is likely not fully surveying their college, this task is far more difficult than putting up a few posters or changing a mission statement. Creating a culture where every member of the college is not only un-biased in their treatment of others but welcoming to those who are different than them requires training, intension, and resources. MSU CVM has come a long way in terms of curriculum review and preserving a safe learning environment, but they also recognize that there is more work to be done. It is important to me that a program recognizing areas for improvement as well as their successes and then takes action to strengthen areas of weakness. Despite already providing an above average quality of education to students, MSU CVM is taking great care to identify areas of improvement and acting purposefully to improve, never accepting complacency. The curriculum is constantly reevaluated to ensure students receive an education that is extensive yet relevant. Veterinary programs that only emphasize research rather than the teaching achievements of their faculty are resting on their laurels rather than ensuring students see a return on their investment. MSU CVM takes student input seriously and works to promptly incorporate feedback into next year's curriculum. The faculty and administration have a wide array of experiences in different areas of veterinary medicine which allows you to get to know non-traditional careers from someone who has actually done the job. Getting to know MSU CVM faculty means becoming connected with thousands of the top veterinary professionals all over the world. I have yet to find their connections lacking. Like many fields, "who you know" is more important than other qualities you can display on paper, like GPA, so the extensive network provided to you by the college is very rewarding. Overall I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to interact with such a fantastic group of peers and mentors who challenge and support me every day. Investing in my education at MSU CVM has been a very rewarding process.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2019

The MSU Executive MBA is a part time weekend MBA program for professionals that want an experience that's more than an online degree. The collaborate cohort curriculum facilitates networking for professionals of all disciplines and includes an optional study abroad residency. I highly recommend this program to highly driven professionals.
