It is a good school for students to attend and pursuit their career in the future. Grad Programs are very flexible and have varieties courses not only for full time but also for someone who studies for certificate. Program directors are very nice and willing to help or advice their student in any problems or questions.

My graduate program especially for Textile Design, it is covering the art design part and industrial part. So we can get a comprehensive knowledge of textile design.

While this program is new, I absolutely love my program. Every professor is well versed in the field of counseling, especially in trauma, and will go out of their way to make sure you're where you need to be and that your placements (for practicum and internship) are going well.

Philadelphia University is a perfect school for any design major. Their design programs are challenging and require a lot of work and participation in extracurricular activities, but at the same promising that after completing the program one will find it's place in a professional world of the design. The campus is one of the most beautiful campuses I have ever seen; located not far from the center city, with its beautiful landscape, it creates an illusion that you actually are nowhere near the city. Professors are knowledgeable and the university keeps up with a current technology, and the career center is always available to assist and very helpful. The cost of education is on a high side; maybe not as high as some other universities in the area, but high enough to make one worry about how to make it through the time of paying for tuition. In overall, Philadelphia University is a wonderful place to be. It encourages creativity, provides excellent education, and it's beautiful and safe campus is a joy to go to. The employment rate is very high for PhilaU graduates which is what makes the high cost more acceptable considering that the education earned here will most likely land you a desirable job.

I have just started the program and believe that I will enjoy it. The classes offered are directly related to the focus of study and my future as a professional. The staff is extremely helpful and is easy to contact when needed.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

The Strategic Design MBA program is exceptional, timely and rare. Other MBA programs seem a bit too conservative and dated in the 21st century. There is mounting evidence that many universities without this approach are scrambling to pivot and develop similar innovative programs since the skills learned here are listed among the most desirable for business leaders in just about every industry. Additionally the executive format makes it idea for 1) working adults and 2) for students who can manage to travel from other states to attend bi-weekly classes. This is worth serious examination for any student interested in repackaging and updating training for this new and evolving business climate. Take time. Examine this. It's a terrific program!

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2015

The program is brand new, so it's being further developed and modified as we go along. At this time that is the only significant issue. I enjoy the fact that this program gives the students a jump start on completing their practicum/internship hours and that the roaster is fairly feasible and flexible. Most of the students in this program work full-time jobs and/or have families, so this aspect is a definite plus. Also, this program brings in a lot of professionals to do seminars and provide some career tips and general exposure to the field of practice.

I like that I am still able to work and go to school full time. Most professors are available and responsive. The program is very diverse and has a proven success rate.

I was study here last year for a exchange program. As an international student, I'm a little bit struggling about going further education or not. Eventually I insisted to and apply for the graduate program. The finance aid in this school is not very open to international students. So I'm searching the part-time job and finance aid when I finished my study. Otherwise, I'm very appreciated for this graduate program. It takes me to the professional area of textile design.
