Great school. Amazing business program. Its very easy to fall in the trap of skipping classes and deciding not to go to lectures. Lecture classes are huge and its easy to get notes from people, but the more you go to class the better you will do. The professors are all real life practitioners so get to know them as much as you can for future recommendations.
I enrolled in the Big Data / Data Analytics program in October 2016. It was supposed to be a 44 week program. My instructor seemed to not have control of our cohort. My cohort seemed to lag significantly behind the other cohorts. I was forced to wait for them to catch which made learning problematic. What I learned would grow stale while I waited for my cohort to catch up so we could move on to the next section. To compound this, my instructor resigned earlier this year and I was assigned a new instructor. He emailed me that he was going to start setting up meetings. I responded to him. It was over a month and he never responded back. I followed up to try and arrange a meeting. When I heard back from the instructor, I suggested the following week for us to discuss getting back on track and I never heard back. I allotted a year for this program to be completed and its become difficult to continue to allot time when this should've been completed ages ago. I feel the university has failed to fulfill its obligations for the proscribed course. Im still fighting with them for a refund. I know overall Rutgers is a great institution but they really missed the mark (big time) with this program.
I was so fortunate to have attended Rutgers for my undergraduate degree. As a local New Jerseyan, it was a tough decision. There are dozens of colleges and universities in the tri-state area alone, and the level of competition among schools along the East Coast is intense. Having good grades and excellent recommendations, I knew I had choices. I flew as far as Arizona and aspired as high as Princeton! But in the end, the culture of inclusiveness, of academic prowess dating back to the the pre-Revolutionary War area, all for a more than reasonable price in comparison to like schools made choosing Rutgers a no-brainer. The research opportunities, student involvement activities, and networking possibilities are boundless in this massive five-campus school. I highly recommend Rutgers to anyone, especially if you live out of state!
