“Binghamton University School of Management”
October 2015CURRENT STUDENT
Uppers

A lot of opportunities for employment.

School of Management is very competitive.

There are many events and workshops designed to help students professional development.

Downers

Most of the on campus career opportunities are mainly for accounting and finance students.

Comments

Make sure you work hard from the beginning in order to have a competitive resume by the time you are a junior.

Very well-rounded courseload, i liked the fact that we were required to take classes in areas outside of our majors. Also, within my major (Marketing), there were a plethora of classes to choose from, if only I had more time I would have loved to take more. Class size were very large my first two years during popular intro classes, but gradually became much smaller as the classes became more advanced. The school was competitve, but not from student to student. It was competitive in the way that students and faculty were united in making Binghamton University a great school to compete with the top Universities in the nation. Accessibility of faculty , staff and advising was tremendous, a true testimanent that teh University cares about its students. I made great relationships with professors, advisors, and general staff around the University through my involvement over my four years.

Quality of Life

I lived two years in a dorm, one year in an on-campus apartment, and one year in an off-campus house. Where to begin, everything was fantastic, food, quality of life, living style, and it's only getting better. I can't wait to see even more improvements in the years to come.

Admissions

I remember the application being simpler than most other schools i applied to. I asked for a regular decision and was excited to be accepted, I attended a Binghamton meet-up for accepted students near me at a hotel in a neighboring town. Binghamton really made an effort to show that they wanted me to go there.

The academics are very well set up in my opinion. There are a vast amount of options to fulfill general education requirements, and professors are always available through office hours and after class if anything needs to be discussed. The workload is adequate in my opinion, as students can take courses knowing what type of commitment and work level they are getting themselves into. I have heard great things about the study abroad program and I hope to become involved in it in the future.

Quality of Life

I cannot complain about the housing or cost of living at Binghamton. The facilities and libraries are very well maintained and always have adequate resources to utilize. I have never once felt unsafe walking around campus, even at night, and I am always happy when I am at school.

Admissions

The application process was the same. There is a special scholar program in the business school called PWC scholars, which offers job opportunities and scholarships.

In terms of cost benefit analysis, it is bar none one of the best options out there. That said, it's a bit of a time encapsulated experience, in which the latest technology and modern practices or facilities are not really at students disposal.

We have general education requirements which allow freshmen to take a class in various fields giving them an opportunity to make an educated decision when choosing their major.

Admissions

When I applied, BU offered Early Action as an option to hear about my acceptance status early on without any obligation to attend the school. In addition, it was extremely convenient in having an application on the Common Application website.

It really depends on the major! Some of the schools are amazing and full of amazing teachers who are quickly accessable and ready to help you succeed. Other majors are very stand-offish and the professors are not so available. In my major in the Watson school, there is almost always someone around to help. The general requirements themselves can be a pain and differ from school to school, but the major degree requirements are generally likable.

Quality of Life

On campus, life is amazing. There is a dining hall for every community except for the apartment communities, who get their own kitchens. There are free washing and drying facilities. Most of the dorm communities have their own library as well as the main library open twenty-four hours on most days only a little while away. There are two gyms, as well as a Hinman gym if you specifically live there. The campus is very safe; there is always a place to call the police within sight thanks to the blue lights placed around campus. There are events in each community every semester such as Hinman Dorm Wars and Newing Navy. Overall, the people on campus are generally happy.

Admissions

Fairly straight forward. Fill out an application, write a good essay, and mail it to the admissions office in SUNY. Just don't expect to get any financial aid or scholarships specific to the school; they only give scholarships to certain sports students and people who got 2400 on their SAT

Regular decision process. Requires letters of recommendations that are taken very seriously. This basically serves as your interview. They accept the Common application as well as the SUNY application.
