Student & Graduate Reviews

3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

Overall the MS in HRMD program at NYU is excellent. Students are taught by adjunct professors who have high level positions in their industry, thus present a real life, current view of HR. The material taught is practical, engaging, and up to date. The student population is diverse, with a balance of international and domestic grads. The downside to attending graduate school in NYC is the high cost of living. Also, there is not an assigned mentor or adviser in the grad program, thus career guidance is often non existent.

I find Wagner academically challenging, and my student colleagues are the most interesting and motivated group of people I have ever met. While I disagree with some of the core requirements of my curriculum, I generally feel like I am receiving an excellent education. NYU Wagner provides stellar networking and extracurricular activities.

Great school. Was incredibly glad with my choice. Fantastic support for public interest students.
2.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2013

The program faculty give more than required to create the best experience for us. However, that means that they pack a lot into our two year program, so you will work hard and lose sleep. There are very few jobs in our field. The tuition is very high. For some reason, everything breaks quickly and repairs aren't made. The scholarships are few. The student loans will kill us all in the end.

The graduate nursing program is disorganized and there are classes that are a complete waste of time.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2013

I absolutely love NYU. It has truly changed my life. I have met a lot of great individuals who went from being my peers to being my good friends. My professors, are experienced and have all worked in the field of education, so not only do we have the research, but we receive a great understanding of the practice. The professors are real people who value our opinions and the facts that we have real lives outside of NYU so they are very empathetic to situations, however accept nothing but the best from us. In preparing for a career, I have had nothing but great experiences with the career center and the counselors are genuinely helpful. I am applying for an additional program; I cant see myself studying at any other school.

Great educational institution with an outstanding program in jazz. The only flaw is that they don't give scholarship opportunities to foreign students.

Graduation Year: 2012

There is a gap between the academic and the professional/career life, and I feel the students should have more support from the university in order to have a better transition, namely through more performance and work opportunities. The school has a great faculty and resources.
