Degree: Organizational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2018

I became familiar with the campus as a high schools student during the summer as part of project SCOPE. It never occurred to me that I would return to the Mount St. Joseph University (MSJ) campus decades later as a graduate student. The Master of Science of Organizational Leadership (MSOL) program is the only local graduate program I found that fit my needs. In my search, it was important to me to complete a graduate level business degree in a classroom format with other adult learners. All of my instructors hold PhDs and have varied business experience across many industries to offer students a depth and breadth of learning that is hard to find. The small cohort size helps to facilitate interaction and invaluable group discussions as we tackle real world problems in organizations. I believe this program will improve my leadership ability and equip me with the skills to move any organization I chose to join forward into success.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2017

In my opinion, the faculty does not treat you like a human being. During my experience at MSJ, I did not feel like I could comfortably talk to anyone if I needed help in a particular course. For two and a half years, I worked hard and spent an insane amount of money to make it through this program only to have the rug pulled out from under me only months before graduation (with no opportunity for remediation, I might add). I had to spend another year in a different program before graduating. Even though I had passed every course up to that point, it seemed like I was made to feel like an incompetent fool when my performance took a slight dip. While good professors are supposed to encourage and help students along, I felt like the professors in this program seem as though they try to push you out of the program with no chance for redemption. The program director is easily the most cold, demeaning, unapproachable woman I have met in my entire life. Please do yourself a favor and stay away from this program if you have other options. I only write this review because I don't want any more students to experience the hell that this program director put me through. You've been warned.

Degree: Organizational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2018

Mount St. Joe University is a great institution. They focus on small class sizes that help students get the attention they need to learn in a production atmosphere. I went in for a walk through of the college and fell in with the culture . Everyone was beyond friendly and very helpful. The process for applying was simply and they even waived some of the fees to make it more affordable for me. When I attended my programs orientation not only was the Dean of the College of Business there but the President of Mount St. Joseph was there on a Saturday morning to greet us with a smile and share his personal journey on the road to higher education. They really care about every student, that is why I love attending the Mount!

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

The graduate programs are highly rated among employers in the area and give us a lot of value for the amount that we pay. Furthermore, the support received from faculty and program directors are unmatched. The curriculum is engaging and I couldn't have asked for more in a graduate program.

Degree: Physical Therapy
Graduation Year: 2018

Physical Therapy is hard work and it is going to be a difficult program anywhere you go. I love that Mount St. Joseph is a small campus and the school is really focused on the students successes. I am happy I chose this program and school.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015

I am able to get a Masters Degree in Nursing within a short period of time. The faculty and staff are very helpful. It is expensive attending graduate school.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

MSJ does not participate in any grants or scholarships for graduate level students, which really keeps the cost high of graduate school, a definite change from their undergraduate rates- which have plenty of grants and scholarships available to help bring costs down. also, having a new MBA program, they really need to expand their business network with more large companies to open opportunities for graduate internships and post grad career paths.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros of this program is it is one of the best in state. The school is small and so is the program. 99.3% of their graduating student pass the NCLEX-RN. The program is very challenging, which I believes prepares you after school. Only con is they only offer one scholarship for the program, which is the only scholarship offered for grad school.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2014

This is the first year for the MBA program and some tweaks are needed to be worked through. There is a new Dean for Business, so the positive changes are on there way in the near future. Financial Aid does very little to notify of available scholarships, with no leads given to the graduate students. Overall, I am happy with MSJ and the MBA program.
