I have always being a strong believer in pursuit of knowledge and that has driven me to enroll in graduate program. Although,graduate program has its cons but the pros can't be ignored as well.Enrolling for graduate program all depends on individual career goals especially for those aiming at career change or wishing to get involved with the managerial and business side of an industry would definitely require MBA but it can also be stated that engineers and scientists could learn just as much about technique and management from being on field than they could in the classroom. Graduate program helps individual to contribute to different areas of the industry. For example, a manufacturing industry, an individual with a MBA would be able to get involved in marketing/sales, operations and supply chain. It also give room for networking and sharing ideas with other people. Enrolling for graduate program can also increase confidence because most graduate program classes involve stimulating class participation and also encourages practical thinking and opens the eye to see the bigger picture and think in various perspective.It leads to innovation, new ideas and the freedom of self employment. Graduate program also has a downside, many people think graduate program is a waste of time and money because individual could easily get the knowledge he/she requires stay in job instead of four walls of classroom. Graduate school should be for people that's intellectually advanced rather than something pragmatic like class discussions. Unfortunately, most graduates see graduate school as an opportunity to defer dealing with tough employment market, hoping that their time well spent in class will coincide with an improved economy. In conclusion, even though graduate school has its pros and cons but i strongly believe it's an experience every graduate should have because although individual might have the required experience on field but pragmatic thinking,analysis and sharing of ideas within the four walls of graduate school can't be under-emphasized. Probably that's why some companies still pay for their employee's graduate school fee.

Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: extremely supportive staff, resources there when we need them. Cons: Extremely expensive and cost of living is outrageous.
2.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

Our program gave great experience but the facilities were sub-par. I would have liked to see more subscriptions to online journals for research and overall a more aesthetically pleasing building and environment. Plus, I always had to jump through hoops to secure financial aid every year as the administrative staff was generally inaccessible/unresponsive.

3.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2016

This particular MFA program is very rigorous and places a great amount of pressure on the shoulders of the students. The workload, at times, seems quite overwhelming, but the very nature of the career field that all hope to enter is one of sacrifice, persistence, and absolute grit. A definite sense of community is present throughout the cohort and with the faculty, whose aim is to pass on both artistic and professional lessons so that the students will be amply prepared for the tough road that lies ahead. On the whole, the program is designed to hone the talent that is already in place, though more can probably be done to ensure that outgoing students have at least a real foot in the door rather than a reputation to carry.
4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: International Business
Graduation Year: 2017

The MBA program at Pace University is unique due to its location and access to many financial institutions in the area. This makes it easier to obtain an internship in the area and it makes for great networking. However, commuting could take a while depending on where you live but there are many different trains and buses that run to the school. The professors are also pretty good and quite knowledgeable with great experience in their respective fields.
