Georgia State University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (17)
I completed the Flex MBA program which fit both my needs and my schedule since they had late classes I could attend after work as well as many different locations available that were convenient to work. The classes were useful and I was able to immediately apply what I learned to my everyday work.
Georgia State was an excellent experience. I met many different people, and my classes were rigorous, interesting, and fun!
Great program to build a foundation for a career as a CPA / Tax adviser. The majority of the professors are all professionals in the industry and have real world experience and practical knowledge to share.
It was great for a Master's Program! City life was much better for me as a graduate student, than undergrad. The professors were excellent in my program and current in all research.
I'm a first generation college student, so I wasn't aware of University of Georgia or Georgia Tech. The "campus" itself is weird, spread out among downtown Atlanta. Definitely doesn't feel prestigious now and clearly most of the students aren't from the best of their high schools. But I have a decent job now and glad I went here as opposed to a community college.
I had a great experience at Georgia State. Several of our classes were directly related to things I now use in my career. I met many of my closest friends in my classes at Georgia State.
GA State is in an urban setting. Some of the buildings are a good walk from each other, so depending on your class schedule it can be kind of a hustle to get from one place to another. I originally started at a smaller college that felt like I was in grade 13...pretty much high school all over again. I liked the independence and "grown up" feel of GSU. Nobody is going to hold your hand and make you go to class, but most of the professors are very responsive if you reach out to them. I was a commuter, and I liked that I went to class, did my thing, and then went back to my "normal" life - working, friends, etc.
It was a great graduate school program with helpful staff and knowledgeable professors. It was reasonably priced given the rankings at the time.
Georgia State is a wonderful university located in the heart of downtown Atlanta. With reasonable class sizes you get the experience of being a college student while being able to start transitioning to adulthood by taking buses, figuring your way around the city, etc.
The business school provides a well-rounded education and I felt prepared for my career. The school has organizations for specific majors and for the business school in general, which helps introduce students to networking and professional meetings. Most business classes were taught in Aderhold when I attended, which is a newer and nicer building than others on campus. I also took classes at the Alpharetta campus, closer to my home, which was more convenient than going downtown. Parking and security were always a concern after night classes, when many of the specialized Real Estate classes were taught. Students walked in a group to MARTA or to their parking area to help ensure safety. During the day, security was less of a concern due to more business people and other students in the area.
