Pace University-New York Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (12)
Pace University has a great program for those pursuing a degree in Business. They also have a great career resource program, bringing top firms to the school for recruitment of future graduate. As I studied at Pace University and earned a degree in Public Accounting, I took advantage of the program offered, and was able to get a full-time job with a very reputable firm upon graduating school.
Pace University has amazing professors and students. The professors are all always willing to help and make themselves available to you. The coursework is rigorous, but not impossible to keep up with. There is so much to do right at your doorstep because you are in the city. Pace also has a lot of fun events to make all students feel welcome and included. All the students are always so nice and there is so much diversity and uniqueness.
Pace is a school experience that is extremely dependent on you as a student. You will find both insightful professors and professors that will just dictate material to you., but the good professors absolutely stand out. If you are a business student, there are a myriad of opportunities for you to get real world experience in your field of interests through internship opportunities. That being said, student life leads much to be desired. There is not a lot of diversity on the campus when it comes to both the student population and the faculty. When it comes to campus safety, you are getting a mixed bag. of safety. If you are going to the campus in New York City, you will find checkpoints that require you to have a Pace ID to get through. On the other hand, if you are going to the Pleasantville campus, you can just walk on campus without any worry, having access to all academic and administrative buildings with no worry. It gives the students a feeling as if anybody can walk on campus and do whatever they want.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Pace University-Pleasantville! This is one of the most underrated colleges- there are tremendous opportunities for developing one's career trajectories through NYC internship placements, superior faculty mentors, and international competitions.
The program itself is very easy, on the undergraduate level for the most part. The tenured professors don't have much contribution in the world of academia or in proffesional settings. The adjuncts bring a fresh perspective when they are allowed to create their own lessons or else it it easy to find the templates and assignments they teach from. The core classes vastly vary in difficulty depending on who teaches and the electives that are advertised are only seldom offered. There is a big focus on the undergraduates, so if you pursue a masters be prepared to invest in a boot camp afterwards in order to be a good programmer and to create opportunities. In all, had I known this earlier I would not have completed the program because I did want to have a deeper understanding and to stand out from the crowd which the MA fails to deliver on.
Attending a college in the heart of a big city had many advantages. There were many opportunities for internships and work and it taught me that I need to be proactive and take advantage of the opportunities that are offered. At Pace there was not a huge platform for psychology students, being most known for business and arts (theater etc.) in the beginning I was a little lost. Once I joined the psychology club a door opened to internships and jobs that I would have never known about by doing my own research. I would highly recommend joining a club in your major because it not only builds your experience and your resume, but I was also able to create lasting friendships with people who were interested in the same things as me. Now I am on the way to apply to graduate school in the hopes of becoming a Nurse Practitioner! Without the learning style and curriculum at Pace University I would not have had the discipline to really realize the career path I wanted to take.
It's a great business school! You are right near Wall Street and have some great professors that works on the street. You will learn a great deal here.
Excellent law school. Small classes after freshman year. Good professors. Many electives.
Pace offers a variety of interesting classes - there are classes for all interests. Most degree programs allow room to take lots of classes not related to your field, as well as many options within your field. However, if you are not receiving quality financial aid, the benefits are not worth the loan repayment. You also must stay on top of the OSA office, as they will let you fall through the cracks. Professor quality ranges - as some professors are amazing while others shouldn't have a job. Get a great adviser and you should go through your collegiate career smoothly. Having a bad one can cause issues in your senior year - big ones.
I highly recommend Pace to anyone working full time and pursuing a degree in the IT or Telecommunications field!
