Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2016

The UofU Executive MBA program is a very well run and aspiring program. Students are very well respected and the teaching quality has generally been exceptional. I appreciate the efforts for increasing diversity and the momentum they are gaining in establishing this program and network of alumni as one of the leading programs in the country. This is reflected in their consistent gains in national program ratings and how serious they take this program. Salt Lake City and surrounding area is a world-class environment for opportunities for the outdoors while still offering a reasonable sized metropolitan area with a growing business culture and strong track record in start up enterprises. More involvement with surrounding businesses for executives as well as financial sponsorship programs would be a welcome improvement.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2017

S.J. Quinney just got an amazing new building! This place is beautiful! I'm looking out over an amazing valley view as I sit at one of the countless study desks throughout the six floors of the school. The faculty and staff have been exceptionally helpful in my pursuit of this degree and experience outside of the classroom. The courses are challenging in the right ways, without the busy work and unnecessary readings I have heard other school's students complain about. The biggest con about the school is that with the size of the new building, it can be difficult to find fellow students.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2018

The University of Utah is growing and offers a rich offering of experienced professors and researchers. There are multiple student organizations that are beneficial and helpful for professional development and the executive and professional MBA programs offer a wonderful blend of work application and academic stimulation. While the price of tuition continues to raise so does the network connected to the University of Utah. I would highly recommend the program to any working individual that would like to work on a graduate program while still furthering their career and earning income.

Degree: Mathematics
Graduation Year: 2019

The professors seem like very well-connected, passionate people who are great in their fields. The works has never been busywork (though some times it can be a bit overwhelming). The atmosphere in the department is a bit strange; the department has clearly tried to make it a warm, welcoming place, with departmental teas and photo boards, but the truth is that it's hard to have a (non-awkward) conversation with someone who's not directly in your area. Now that I have a particular area and adviser, I find it a very pleasant place, but while I was still trying to suss out what in particular I wanted to work on, I was very lonely !

Degree: Liberal Studies

The program is challenging and also requires a huge time commitment. I am excited about increasing my knowledge in clinical chemistry and also having the opportunity to seek career advancements.

Program is organized and clear, but at times it is hard to get a hold of people regarding questions or concerns.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2017

The program is diverse and has great ties with the community. The one things I do not like is how unorganized the program can appear at times.
