"Generally, the program is pretty hectic for the first year as other MBA programs do. What makes this program special is its Supply Chain courses, which are pretty good and have a lot of relevant resources to support you to apply SCM skills and knowledge learned from classes."

"Since starting my graduate program, I have to say its been a ride in wonderland for me. That is great, exciting and very educational. However, the financial support and scholarship opportunities for graduate programs are not as varied or as much as doctoral programs, which including the international students, it makes it even harder. In general, I'm very grateful for being accepted and have the chance to study in this inspiring area and among all talented students."

"I like how the classes/workload are challenging but not unreasonable. Its nice that the program provides a free dinner to kick off each semester and free breakfast every Saturday when we have an all day Saturday elective. The only con would be struggling to find the balance between a full-time job and not having to take time off to be prepared for class/exams."

"The Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law at ASU is located in beautiful Phoenix with some of the nation's top law professors. We have the number one Indian Legal program, the number five Legal Writing program, and the number 18 International Law program. There is a flexible option where students can go part time, and there is an incredible amount of scholarships...most of the students I know in my class received scholarships."

"I particularly valued the effort the program placed on connecting me with potential employers. As well, all of the professors within my program seemed on the same page regarding my education, communicating with each other and building on material from other courses. My biggest complaint is the location. Tempe is not a particularly nice town (had my bike stolen the first month I was here), and the heat during summer/fall is unbearable."

"The JD program at ASU has been a great value overall. The student body has been fun yet competitive and the professors have been exceptional. While law school itself hasn't been all that fun, ASU has been a great environment to suffer through the sleepless nights of studying."

"Most of the students in my batch had some sort of financial aid, this helped the learning in two ways. One, financial aid attracted some of the best students from different parts of the world, and second, it helped students to concentrate on learning and job search in a more relaxed manner. The new campus is equipped with state of the art latest technologies, and earned praise from the visiting students from rival schools."

"The ASU Graduate Architecture program is a worthy pursuit for architecture careers, however its once high-ranking program has fallen from its peak desiring fresh air to be given to the school. Students here will get a good education, but may be yearning for more depth than what can be offered by the courses offered."

"WP Carey has a good MBA program, where you have to work hard to succeed. My network has grown substantially through this program. One area I felt could be improved upon was the variety of elective options."

"The classes and professors are top notch. There is a huge emphasis on teamwork, and with tuition being incredibly high and the workload being rigorous, it's frustrating to sometimes still have grades hinge on people who don't put in the work (something I thought is left behind at the undergrad level). However, the value overall from the program is very high, and I've made connections and friends that I never would have made otherwise. It's been a very beneficial experience."

"It's hard to come up with any negatives. I've been nothing but happy with my decision to attend ASU. I always feel especially lucky after talking with colleagues attending other universities. We have excellent funding opportunities here, as well as opportunities to collaborate within and across disciplines, participate in multi-institutional research, and network at multiple scales. It's very hands-on, with some of the best archaeologists in the world. This program gives its graduate students everything they need to become stellar. I can't say enough about the faculty and the research opportunities."

"The structure of online learning environments desperately needs to be restructured if it is going to justify the price of the courses. 1500 USD a course(Which is more than it costs to attend in person) for watching pre-made videos is unacceptable in my opinion. There is almost no teacher student interaction beyond waiting for a TA to make followup posts on a forum. Pre-made Video lectures should be used to support course material not teach it. We have the tools to host steamed classroom sessions which is the way it should be. Very disappointed in ASU's online learning system and will not stay enrolled for fall 2015. As it stands now I am forced into attending because thankfully the credits will transfer to another school, however I would not pay beyond what a traditional community college would charge for equivalent courses. Additionally the degree I was pursuing was titled as "Software Engineering" but the truth is that it is more of a management degree than a programming degree, which also has a lower employment rate. In todays world where when it comes to computer science specifically you need to do better than post videos that you can find for free on YouTube. I understand your getting a grade but is paying $1500 a course really worth it? Especially considering attending on campus is cheaper and definitely a more enriching environment while providing more degree options. Im sure there are better schools out there for cheaper, so my advice is don't buy into the hype. I really hope that in the future Online Courses are developed to be more interactive because right now Schools seem to be jumping on the bandwagon to take advantage of people who can't necessarily attend in person."

"ASU offers an affordable graduate education to those who are in state. Phoenix is an affordable place to live, but the transportation and safety could be improved. The faculty in my department are extremely knowledge and helpful. They make themselves available to students and are genuinely concerned with our achievement. The workload is manageable, depending on the course and the instructor, and most classes focus on practical applications of the material to our field."

  • Degree: English
"ASU's Department of English offers interesting, vigorous graduate classes from well-qualified, highly knowledgeable professors. The professors, staff, and other students offer a supportive community. The department is also increasing efforts and resources for giving graduate students their best chance on the job market. Most doctoral graduate students receive TAships and stipends, but the financial compensation isn't really enough to live on. There are not funding opportunities for masters students."
