Student & Graduate Reviews

2.4 out of 5.0
Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2012

Waste of money. Decent classes, did learn a little but of very little value when paying the same amount as the other top 10 business schools.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2013

Excellent institution and learning experience. Committed faculty with valid experience.
4.6 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2011

The MS in Publishing program at Pace University was a great program because it gave me the edge when applying for jobs in publishing. Many say this is an apprenticeship industry but I felt having the Pace name and education behind helped me get work. You get to choose between magazine or book publishing so that was nice to have since these sections are different and you feel like you get a focus.
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2017

The Elisabeth Haub School of Law is a standard law school located uptown of New York. It has a great reputation for its Environmental Law program. So far, the education and experience have been great and enlightening. The provision of an externship at the United Nations makes it a great experience overall.
4.08 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2018

Pros: community feeling, high level of academic learning, accomplished staff, access to good rotations cons: would rather still take paper tests
3.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2018

Everything is great. My commute to school is hectic while managing a full-time job.
2.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Writing
Graduation Year: 2016

Pace's publishing program is very career-centered, so students who are not already working in the industry must complete an internship. Plus, Pace's midtown center is super close to many major publishers. Admissions is a pain to deal with--way too much red tape! However, the actual faculty in the publishing program are wonderful and have a ton of real-world experience.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2018

You have the opportunity o work with an outstanding and passionate faculty and staff, as well as network with the Actors Studio. The schedule gets a little hectic, but it is worth it.
Degree: Performing Arts
Graduation Year: 2018

My graduate program's direct connection to working professionals and high expectations of quality work, make them one of the top graduate programs in my field. Unfortunately, the cost of living and tuition in the state and city of New York is very outrageous.
3.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2015

Great Grad Program, but unfortunately the school as a whole has many areas it needs to improve on.
