Degree: International Business
Graduation Year: 2021

University of Arizona's Eller College of Management consistently ranks high in leading studies of business education at both the graduate and undergraduate levels. Arizona's respected reputation can be most accredited to the value of the networking connections they possess within the business sector. Building strong relationships in business is essential to ones success. If there is one thing I have learned while attending business school, it is that it is all about who you know. For example, last month the President and CEO of the Better Business Beraeu traveled to campus to lead a talk on the traits that make up a successful leader. It is opportunities like this that set the University of Arizona's business program apart from others alike. As if the rigor of college itself wasn't stressful enough, the last two years of college are where it gets real and stress regarding your future begins to build in the back of your mind. The professors and faculty of Eller College of Management provide students with the tools needed to not only be confident but excited about what their futures hold upon graduation, making the transition process a lot easier. One attends college for various reasons that range from the desire to earn high wages, landing a good job and to advance their career opportunities. However, one attends Eller to not only reach these goals, but obtain immeasurable character growth simultaneously.

Overall, the instructors and the delivery of each individual course was both challenging and extremely rewarding. Everyone was exceedingly helpful and I never felt as though communication was an issue. The University of Arizona got distance graduate education right.

Degree: Journalism
Graduation Year: 2019

The University of Arizona Journalism School is exceptional. Our professors have journalistic such a wide range of journalistic experience ranging from positions at National Geographic, The New York Times, and the Wall Street Journal. They do a fantastic job at passing down their wisdom to students. The program is relatively small so there are a lot of opportunities for support from professors and fellow peers as well. The school itself is open to students 24/7 with the use of our student ID cards, so it's great for pulling nighters or weekend studying. The offered courses go beyond standard journalism writing courses and also offer publication design, app design, and even reporting for international journalists. All of this and more will more than contribute to an extremely well-rounded journalistic education. I would highly recommended the J-School to all aspiring journalists.

Degree: Architecture
Graduation Year: 2019

Great school! Professors are qualified and well trained to help us prepare for a future career. Challenging environment, important to improve skills and be better. Welcoming atmosphere for other cultures. Personally, I am from Venezuela and they recognize the fact that I am international and they find the best I could share about my culture and knowledge.

The University of Arizona has prepared me well for my future career in environmental and water science and policy. The faculty seems to care about its students and I've felt comfortable and successful here since moving to Arizona from out of state. I would recommend the University of Arizona to other prospective students.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2017

The University of Arizona is a great institution to enroll in either in-person or online courses. My program in International Security was conducted exclusively online and charged a flat tuition rate for students regardless of residency. This gives students a high degree of flexibility regarding their living/working situations while taking classes. Also, the university continues to invest heavily in growing its online degree programs, therefore improving the overall experience for UA Online students. Instructors are highly qualified and knowledgeable, and the coursework is both challenging and relevant. This program is well-suited for many students, although online learning demands higher levels of self-discipline and time management.

The MBA program at the University of Arizona has been beneficial to my current career as a higher education professional, especially as pertains to managing employees and building customer relations. The options for selecting courses that are applicable to receiving my degree allow me the control of customizing my education to meet my career goals. The content for the online program is provided in an easy to use manner, which makes continuing education for a working professional very easy.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

University of Arizona is a great school. Located in a calm, quite, moderate-sized city of Tucson. The weather is great for 10 months and a little hot for two months which is usually when the school is closed. There are a lot of parties on and off the campus for students each week. You would have a great social life plus a very good school experience with high qualified teachers and professors.

Degree: Mathematics
Graduation Year: 2010

A college education is an investment and should be treated as such. Don't go to college to get an education, but go to learn a trade that you will value for the rest of your life.
