Degree: Nutrition
Graduation Year: 2019

I started an online master science in food safety in the Michigan State University MSU. I recently change my job with a position close related with food regulations so this master perfectly fit my requirements to give me tools to be very successful in my new food safety career giving to me more information in areas as food law or food toxicology where I had no experience. The Master Program offered relevant material on those two topics from first semester that helped me to acquire a wide knowledge in the field. I found MSU uses a strong and versatile methodology for information exchanging called D2L, the Michigan State University's centrally supported Learning Management System, very useful for the student for access to all the activities involved in each course training as videos, files, drop-boxes, attached information, discussion groups, emails, grades, course progresses, exchange information and ideas with colleges etc. It a great informatics tool very friendly, robust and stable for learning. I found also without any hassle the process of registration, course enrollment and financial support acquiring with a loan based using FAFSA. I could complete all the steps for first semester of the master very quickly and without mishaps. I have decided to change the major of the Master for the scholar period starting in 2017 to the Master Science of Pharmacology and Toxicology finding the process was very easy and supportive from my school advisors. I consider Michigan State University one of the greatest schools in USA and Im very proud to follow my career path to obtain a graduate degree in that institution of excellence..

Degree: Supply Chain Management
Graduation Year: 2017

The Master of Science in Supply Chain Management (MSSCM) curriculum at Michigan State University is the top-ranked global leader in SCM education. One of the most significant things that I have experienced since I have been enrolled as a student is the true desire the staff has to educate and connect with the students. All of the faculty have demonstrated a passion for education and student preparation. Additionally, the professors at Michigan State are the most recognized and respected educators in their respective fields. The faculty is able to connect classroom concepts to current real world situations. This is crucial and instrumental in bridging the gap from book-based theory to practical application. While they are professors by trade, they are still connected to industry and in-tune with what is relevant in today's global landscape. This is one of the aspects that make this the number one program for supply chain education in the world. The MSSCM program operates on a global platform. The faculty is diverse as well as the student population. For example, my cohort of classmates includes individuals from Saudi Arabia, Poland, and Pakistan, to name a few. This diversity allows us to learn concepts that are cutting edge from global companies. Students are provided a platform and our voices, opinions, and experiences are valued. This is accomplished through a hybrid of online and five onsite campus sessions. This exceptional learning platform maximizes our potential to learn and grow as future leaders. The program requirements and structure are rigorous, requiring discipline from its students. While demanding, this program is manageable for students who are committed to advancing their knowledge in the supply chain field. While it can be difficult to manage the demands of full time work, family, and education, the program structure allows for a healthy balance. I am almost one year into this two-year degree and I cannot recommend it enough. I know that I am learning key concepts and am being developed to take my career to the next level. Graduates are sought after by Fortune 500 companies and the large network of alumni leaders provide advanced opportunities in competitive supply chain roles. I am proud to be a MSSCM student at MSU and I look forward to completing the educational process. Most importantly this program has ignited my passion for growth and development. I encourage any potential student to learn about the program and see just how amazing the Spartan experience at Michigan State is!!! Choosing this program has easily been one of the best decisions of my life.

Once a Spartan always a Spartan. Michigan State university is not just a school but a family built on continued success. That success is fostered not only in their heritage but more importantly in the classroom. The education I received from Michigan State professors was tremendous. They want to see all their students succeed and they present many opportunities for you to be successful. Nothing is given so hard work is required.

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2018

I couldn't be more pleased with the overall quality of Michigan State University. I shopped around for 6 years before beginning my Master's and am glad I did now that I've begun with MSU. The degree in Management, Strategy and Leadership is a relatively new degree; however, it already has national attention due to the reviews it has received.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017

Great program with great instructors. Fully prepares you for a career after graduation. A variety of great clinical sites with diverse experiences. Extremely intensive program. It will push you to be your best. Front loaded with the didactic portion allows you to start the clinical portion more prepared and comfortable with your practice.

Degree: Performing Arts
Graduation Year: 2012

Michigan State offered an affordable graduate music program that was comparable in value to many of the best and most expensive programs out there. With the numerous strong athletic programs and variety of social outlets, there were plenty of ways to keep stress levels low outside of the practice room. The facilities in the music school were on the older side when I attended, but I understand many improvements have been made since I graduated. Overall, Michigan State offered a well-rounded and pleasant graduate experience.

I love attending MSU. Being on campus is wonderful, but the online classes are also well supported. The faculty in the College of Education are top notch and the support staff really help to make sure all questions are answered. I highly recommend MSU College of Ed for undergraduate and graduate programs.

Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2018

The open-door policy is taken to heart by the faculty and graduate students in the department. The department's graduate student organization is extremely active, so there are plenty of ways to get involved. A lot is expected of graduate students, but the university has many resources available.
