Student Reviews

Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

I enjoyed every experience I had during my studies. College means the world to me, and my being able to advance my knowledge and develop my skills and research interests is a true blessing.

Good but could be better
Anonymous rated 3 out of 5 stars

It is a decent program, but it could be improved by making the curriculum more challenging and setting higher standards by not heavily relying on curves to give people an A. A mandatory internship would also be nice. I understand that Economics is a tough subject, but dumbing it down does not benefit the brighter students. Teachers are knowledgeable.
