Awesome finance and accounting teachers. Really good location and great facilities.

Downers

University requires students to take business core classes, that aren't at all relevant to the specific major. For example, finance major having to take marketing classes.

They have a extremely strong accounting and finance program. They place consistently into the top investment banks, consulting firms, and accounting firms.

great real world experience; professors who are experienced in their fields; tons of internship opportunities

Downers

main focus is on accounting and finance - if you are management or marketing, you have to be more aggressive when talking to career services to get help

Comments

note - there is a 3.5 GPA minimum requirement. not impossible to get, but requires you to try hard your first year

“Great Professors & Hands On Practice”
June 2017CURRENT STUDENT
Uppers

The high level quality of the professors that teach you each subject, for sure will you new tools to use on each field that you are facing nowadays in your business. Also, all professors are really open to keep helping you outside the class and connect you with their network to make things easier if it's needed.

Downers

I think some times classes lack at the very beginning the idea of showing how every topic that will be treated along the course will connect among each other, that facilitate the understanding of whole journey before starting.

Comments

Be prepared before the class starts to get the best on each professor, and try to apply those new tools to the new scenarios that presents everyday.

Would You Recommend
