"FIU was a great university that prepared me for most of the things I would face in the education field. The professors and mentors were very informative and inspiring. Although I was given tips on starting my career, it ultimately was up to me to put myself out there and get recognized for my qualities and attributes. Don't expect to just be handed a job as soon as you graduate. You do have to work for it. But in the end, when you do find where you belong, you will use all of your experiences at FIU to be the best educator you can be."

"Pros: Our program is very diversified in the sense that it is offered jointly by the Chemistry, Biological Sciences and the Medical College Departments at FIU. Therefore, our students are allowed to choose a PI from any of these departments. Pros: The coursework is supplementary to our research. Pros: Our program faculty and coordinators truly care about our success and are always there to talk to us. Cons: It is a 5 year program, allow that is the norm."

  • Degree: MBA
"The MBA dual degree at FIU is a very prestigious and rigorous program, but it is worth it. The FIU program consists of students representing nearly 26 nations who are deep into their careers (own businesses, future CEO's, Manages, etc) and a small portion are newly graduated students with a degree from their home country. Like the other MBA programs, most of the major assignments are done in groups. If you're not used to working with others this can be a con, because not only will you have to work together but you also have to overcome opposing persoalities and different way of thinking. The curriculum incorporates a 360 degree view of the domestic & international business market. You are exposed to Harvard Business School case studies and real-world scenerios in which you are assigned a company, in your last semester, and have to solve a current business problem. Throughout this program you will hone already existing skillsets and learn new ones that will be applicable in the business market, regardless if you seek an Economics, Marketing, Finance, or Consulting position."

"Pros: I love the diversity within the program and interdisciplinary nature of many professors there. There are a lot of scholarship and funding options for minorities, which I took full advantage of. Cons: The course work was not very challenging for me. I also feel there were too many classes that were combined with Undergrad and Grad students."

"Great Master of Architecture 5-year Accelerated program! A lot of competitiveness, which pushes you even more to do amazing in your projects, which are based on real life situations and current problems of sustainability. Being located in Miami, a niche for artistic expression, and where Architecture is ever-growing, Florida International University is the perfect place to be World's Ahead!"

  • Degree: Architecture
"Professor only interested in promoting their own agenda, overlooking curriculum and student concerns, often resulting in exploiting students to build exhibitions instead of having them learn. Technical classes offered are short and leave students unprepared. 3d modelling classes do not teach software that is relevant to practicing firms. Fabrication and print labs are ok, but machines often break and impossible to use when deadlines are due. FIU keeps taking in more students, leaving many without a proper desk in studio. Graduate students pay graduate tuition (nearly double) for undergrad courses. Advising is usually disorganized and is known for making mistakes, sometimes leaving out courses which students need to take (and finding out late a class had to be taken). Study abroad options are good and interesting. Sometimes classes are so large, multiple teacher assistants are needed, resulting in poor and biased assessment of student work. A handful of professors are very involved and extremely inspiring. Current chair of architecture works little with students, not very understanding, and offers meager support for student organizations. Overall, FIU is to be avoided."
