Janinne Martinez - 9/8/2019
Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2012
"Mills college MBA program is an excellent program to attend. I had a great experience moving to Oakland from San Diego in order to attain my MBA. It was a great move for me because the college is strategically located near Silicon Valley and a thriving Oakland community. I had plenty of job opportunities after graduating because of its location to major companies. The campus itself is situated in the hills which are very lush and green. Its about a thirty-minute train ride into San Francisco from Oakland. The buildings on campus are beautiful as well as the main MBA building which is leed certified. The MBA program also offers many interesting disciplines to focus on. Instructors were very knowledgeable, some taught at UC Berkeley which is just a shuttle ride from the Mills campus. There is a shuttle that the school offers to take students around Oakland. Its very easy to find housing in Oakland or in San Francisco. Financial aid is available and counselors work closely with you to determine your award package. The school is an all women college however the MBA program is coed. It was nice that the cohort was predominantly female which is unique to this school. Most schools are about 50/50 coed. I was extremely satisfied with the impact the degree had on my career. It influenced my income potential greatly. The program itself could have been a bit more rigorous and in depth in certain areas but overall the program was very good."

"Mills college is a fantastic institution to attend for undergraduate degrees. The curriculum is rigorous and well thought-out to ensure the students graduate not only with the necessary knowledge for their field, but with the tools to pursue their passion and integrate their ideas into their field of study. The college is inclusive and offers a curriculum which challenges the students to deeply contemplate topics within their field as well as outside of it, leading to deeper understandings of themselves as individuals and as scholars."

Rose - 9/8/2016
Degree: Anthropology
Graduation Year: 2016
"The Anthropology department was going through some dot of changes. We only work with professors for just a semester, then we get new ones every semester. There wasn't a way for us to make connection with them. There were no full time Anthropologist in the department."

2014 Graduate - 8/22/2015
Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014
"Mills College offered a hands on learning environment, and knowledgeable and approachable professors. The cohort size was small and personable allowing for individual attention from professors. The campus is beautiful and affords a great learning environment. My degree led directly to a job as a Child Life Specialist in the field, and my education at Mills is seen as a large plus on my resume."
