Student & Graduate Reviews

3.83 out of 5.0
Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2017

The Paul Merage School of Business is one of the most renowned in the country, and consistently comes up at the top of state and federal rankings. The community around the school is one of the safest (if not the safest) in the country. Surrounded by Orange County's top companies, the networking opportunities afforded by the program shine above similar options. As a con, the cost is pretty big, reducing the overall value in spite of the quality of the education. Technology use could be better, by making all class material available digitally.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2016

The program has the motto of "Innovate, Collaborate, Grow". They full time program does an excellent job of embodying these values. The network is great, and highly receptive when it comes to helping a fellow student/alum. The career center is excellent, and highly involved with the students. Classmates are of a high caliber, and incredibly tight knit. This is an outstanding program, which is constantly improving.

4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Environmental Engineering
Graduation Year: 2016

The graduate program so far has been wonderful, yet challenging. The professors are there to help you as long as you put the time in. I have found that the teachers are willing to go out of their way for hard workers. The classes are very challenging.
3.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2016

It's a young, great, ambitious university with high-quality programs that have the potential in expanding student diversity and improving cost of living and its social life (which would include the dull surrounding area)
3.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Chemical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

Good place to do research, but not a good party city.
4.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Music
Graduation Year: 2015

My particular program seeks to be a platform for innovative contemporary music. The UCI Music department has a strong academic foundation for both classical and jazz musics, and this graduate program in Integrated Composition, Improvisation, and Technology pushes us as composers to be always learning, adapting, and innovating with the times. Our strong emphasis in technology means that we work much with the latest developments in audio software and equipment, and are encouraged to make developments of our own. We have the opportunity for much interdisciplinary work, both in collaborating with engineers and mathematicians on the technological aspects of our work, but with artists of other mediums, such as dance or visual art. I feel the only con I have encountered here at UCI is the cost of living in Orange County, and the industrial business center that is Irvine. A small price to pay for an excellent education.
