Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2017

This program is great for working professionals. Most instructors are knowledgeable and understanding when it comes to work commitments and the instruction is great for an online program. Teachers are also accessible. The head of the department is also helpful when it comes to choosing classes, as well as, academic advising.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2017

University of Cincinnati is a well known place for its business and design colleges. I am majoring in MS-IS, which is Masters in Information Systems. I actually took my bachelor's degree in Information system from the University of Cincinnati. As you can see I have decided to do both of my undergrad and grad school in University of Cincinnati. UC is located in Cincinnati, which has many big companies like P&G and GE. These companies usually comes and visits UC to hire students for internships/Co-Op or full time jobs.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2018

Former university president Santa Ono helped coin the descriptor of UC as HottestCollegeInAmerica and that's a valid title. I received my undergraduate degree from UC as well and am glad to return as I pursue my MBA at UC. While some people may be concerned that UC is not a top ranked business school like Harvard or Yale, it it make strides in its own right. According to the U.S. News and World report as of 2015 UC's part-time MBA program was ranked #29 among public universities while its full-time program was ranked #37 among public universities. The Lindner College of Business also earned the biggest ranking jump of any MBA program in the country, evidence that UC is on it's way up. My experiences within the graduate business program thus far has demonstrated to me the quality education you receive at this university. The opportunities available through the college (co-op, study abroad, etc...), the flexibility in your class schedule (on-line/in-person, night classes), and the lower tuition compared to various other MBA programs in the area make UC a no-brainier as a top contender for business school. Outside the degree program itself, the university has a gorgeous campus located in the Clifton heights area which has been developed into a great college town. The opportunities are endless at UC if you take advantage of them. I'm glad I decided on UC for my MBA and I think if you do the same you'll be happy you did as well.

Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2018

I have just begun my journey in the Master's of Education program at the University of Cincinnati but so far it has been an extraordinary experience. As a non traditional student (a single mom working a full time job) it was imperative that I find a school and program that would assist me in moving forward with my educational goals in a manner that was conducive to my life as it is right now. I have had a single point of contact from the moment I started the application process and continue to have close contact with my adviser on all things related to my classes, financial aid, IT, etc. I would highly recommend the graduate programs at UC to any non-traditional student who thinks that pursuing higher education while maintaining a full time job and family isn't possible. UC has made it possible for me and has continuously been there for me to encourage me as I move forward.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

The University of Cincinnati's Adult-Gero Nurse Practitioner Program is a competitive masters program that prepares students to sit for their boards. UC's distance-learning option allows students to work from home and listen to lectures on their own time. Professors are easily accessible via email and program coordinators are consistently checking in on students to make sure they are on track with classes.

The professors are super helpful and are willing to work with students on anything. They each have their own personalized research projects that are all very different and interesting and are always willing to get students involved.
