Student & Graduate Reviews

3.8 out of 5.0
Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2013

Getting my MBA changed my life for the better. Bigger raises and more understanding of the business environment
4.6 out of 5.0
Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2002

Excellent faculty who encouraged me to reach to achieve what I did not think I could. I will always be grateful for this education. Though my path took a different turn than intended, my education has continued to be useful in all areas that I have worked in.

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2016

I am studying master's in manufacturing management at Penn State Behrend. It is a new program, so the structure of the classes are not completely figured out yet. However, there is an industrial advisory board that suggests course material that would be beneficial for students to learn while studying in the program.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2010

A great opportunity for a smaller school. If you take the initiative and go after anything in this program you will find limitless opportunities. There is essentially no-one who will ever stand in your way, and you can have almost anyone (administrative, professors, fellow students) in your corner as long as you initiate the first step.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2016

Much of the above is not applicable as I will be part of the Part-Time MBA program that is to be an online learning based with some classroom experience. What I have experienced from the school should receive high praise. I think I've made a great choice.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2014

The Full-time MBA program offers great opportunities for those that are pursuing an MBA as a career change. There are many MBA students who work full-time. However, for those that do not have the business background, this program is perfect. Students interact with career professionals and carry open discussions on actual professional experience. Additionally, not only are the professors engaging, and personable, but they are accessible. There are two required workshops that introduce students into business management and practices, which really sets the foundation for understanding how the business world works. Apart from the overall structure, the greatest weakness about the program at the PSU Behrend College is the lack of program specializations. Allowing students to focus on a particularly field would greatly enhance this MBA program.
