Student & Graduate Reviews

4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

With a good advisor, this is a great program. But it really does depend on who you work with.

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2015

Not a great area and poor course selection. Great cohort.
3.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Architecture
Graduation Year: 2015

The program has a strong reputation and builds an incredible network. The program is a bit all over the place at the moment in a shift between deans and faculty. The program is very theory heavy riding a difficult line between theoretical and practical application downplaying design.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Administration
Graduation Year: 2018

The pros are this program can be completed in one year, saving you the extra tuition and living costs of a typical two year program, and the vast Maxwell network. The cons are it does go by fast, since it is a compact program it is also intense.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2016

In a world that now has high demand for big Data and information management and related courses, the pros of having a graduate degree in Data & Information Sciences are limitless. But just to mention a few, this graduate program gives you a solid foundation knowledge on how to develop and use available applications that will foster and cater to this increasing demand, while also acting as a bridge between other technical and business areas. The Information Sciences graduate programs are top-notch and uses the best of the best and most recent technology tools. With this, graduates from these program areas are well equipped and ready to face challenges in a fast-paced and rapid changing technological era.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Policy
Graduation Year: 2017

The Public Diplomacy program is the perfect combination of Communications and International Relations. There is sincerely no other program in the country like it. PD brings together the theoretical work in the small classes of 12-15 and practical with the summer internship and semester in D.C.. Since the program is small students get to meet and work with professors and staff all the time. Studying at the Maxwell school and Newhouse school gives students a huge supportive network of alumni to find internships ad jobs.
4.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Library Science
Graduation Year: 2017

Syracuse University is an absolutely beautiful school (even covered in six feet of snow) that I loved attending as an undergraduate student. I am about to enter the graduate program at the Information School (iSchool) there and I can already tell that it is going to be worthwhile. While the food is borderline and the computer labs and libraries can tend to be a bit overrun and/or dingy in places, the resources are wonderful and almost every person that I have gone to for help regarding anything has been helpful and responsive. Perhaps the biggest con to Syracuse University is its lack of renovation to anything on campus, especially the dorm rooms. A couple of the libraries were just renovated last year, but that is the very tip of a large iceberg. Overall, I would say that I do not regret ever attending Syracuse University and I am very much looking forward to returning to one of the most highly ranked ALA-accredited programs in the country there in the fall!

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

Whitman MBA at Syracuse university offers students to learn managerial skills and various theories that can be applied to real life situations for working professionals with help from outstanding professors who have experience in both academics and corporate industries. The cons of the program is that if the student is not financially adequate, it may be hard to attend mandatory residency programs that school offers. I hope these costs are presented to student when they first enroll so they know what to expect but based on the experience so far, the school is requiring these costs monthly unexpectedly which may financial burdens to students.

WSOM is a great school with quality professors. However, it's very costly.
