Student & Graduate Reviews

4.6 out of 5.0
Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2012

The programs offered are extremely beneficial. If attending as an in-state student, it is the most affordable education for the highest quality. The professor's genuinely care about you. There are alums in every city, and many ways to get career opportunities.

Pros: University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign is a melting pot of lots of international students from all over the world. The school is accepting of all individuals and diversity. My program is intense in terms of workload and difficulty. Professors are both intellectually and culturally responsible for their work. Students, especially international students work very hard in school and in terms created a rather competitive environment. Cons: Economics program is more academic oriented. Thus the program may not even provide information on career building. The University of Illinois has several career centers related to specific schools. However, since college of liberal arts and science is so big, they only have a generic career center for the thousands of students in the college. For econ students, very few of them have an understanding about American job hunting skills because they are international students. Economics program should provide more social help on students, not only academic help. Second, Economics program should invite more visiting professors or researchers to talk in seminar. Therefore students who are interested in academia could find it a great opportunity.

The diversity of the program and social life on campus is really amazing. I wish we had more number of faculty members in my area of research.
