Pros of a graduate program: - Engineering management education opens many doors - Engineering management prepares me for a leadership role in planning, developing and managing firm’s technological resources including people, technology and processes - Abundant job opportunities worldwide. - Reputable core curriculum, excellent faculty. - Superb resources which included state of the art classrooms. - Great place to network and build professional relationships.

Lawrence is a student friendly place and public transportation is free for KU students. but you can't expect grades without hard work.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

The main reason that I applied to KU's Master of Social Work program is because of its high rank among other Master of Social Work programs. I feel like I am getting a high quality education. I also love that they offer a blended coursework option, so I can do the majority of my work online but still have the benefit of meeting with my professors and peers in a classroom twice a month. This is especially helpful because I live a couple hours from campus, I work, and I have several other commitments that make going to class multiple times a week difficult. The main con I have experienced is that I personally struggle more with online classes than going to a classroom regularly. However, this is a con that I chose to work with considering my circumstances. Another con is that the academic counselors seem to forget about online graduate students. It is not mandatory for us to meet with or contact them, but it would be nice to have them more readily available as a resource.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2018

The Master's in Engineering Management is very helpful in teaching engineers about business. We learn how engineering companies function and how our work affects the company. Our program can do a better job at teaching excel worksheet instead of just giving us the spreadsheets.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2016

KU's Master of Accountancy program is exceptional. The program is layed out to provide the necessary tools needed to fully prepare yourself for the CPA exams. KU has great networking connections with all of the major firms. The opportunities are endless!

Degree: Neuropsychology
Graduation Year: 2019

Being apart of the Neuroscience Graduate Program is great because the other students are working on what seem like complete different areas of research, but have a strong focus in Neuroscience. I also enjoy that I have two outlets for questions and concerns. With the Molecular Biosciences department and the NGP. The only con I can think of is I dont know the people in my program. I am on the Lawrence campus with one other student, while the other 8 are at the KC campus. It would be nice to get together and know them.
