"The program was difficult but enjoyable. The professors for the most part were really great. I wish we had been more prepared for what to expect after the FE with the degree we received. Maybe if we would have had a class on what to expect as a working professional with an ET degree I would not have been so disheartened to find that I have to wait 4 years to call myself an EIT and 8 to take the PE."

"I'm currently studying Accounting at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. The professors have been very hands on and the program does an excellent job of preparing you for the real world. While the commute of traveling to uptown Charlotte is tedious the experience has proven worthwhile."

"UNC Charlotte is located in the University City area of Charlotte, so it gives you access to the amenities of Charlotte while being relatively affordable. The professors seem to actually care about your education and are really approachable. UNC Charlotte is up-to-date and the English PTW program is practical and useful. There are only three PTW faculty, which is both a pro and a con because you get to know them really well, but it limits the input you get. The majority of students commute in and most of the grad classes are at night so you can work during the day."

"Pros: I am more than pleasantly surprised with the academic quality and rigor of my program. This program is not highly ranked compared to other schools, but I am excited to go to class and share my experiences and education with others and even more excited to learn from my colleagues. This graduate program is a perfect fit for me. Cons: Campus life leaves a lot to be desired and the University Area is not a safe neighborhood, unfortunately."

"The Graduate Program in Kinesiology at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte is known for graduating students that are prepared for the professional life awaiting them in the surrounding metropolitan area or an area outside of the region. Moreover, the program also provides a track for students to obtain a terminal degree in the field--the professors are readily available to help and are focused on making the institution stand-out with regards to it's research. The location of UNCC is in Charlotte which is still somewhat small and less progressive than many cities, while the financial aid is becoming non-existent due to cutbacks in the state legislature. However, I would recommend the program for anyone interested in sports medicine and kinesiology due to the local research campus and the dedication of the staff and the faculty in the program."

"Strong program at an up-and-coming urban research institution (the fastest growing UNC school and conveniently located in a growing city). Wonderful professors and mentors in the department and at the university. I have been fortunate to receive sufficient financial and academic support. Maybe not quite the same expectations and competitiveness as you would encounter at an Ivy League school, but I'd rather be here given the amount of opportunities I have at UNC Charlotte to do independent and collaborative research, publish, present at conferences, and teach undergraduate courses. Affordable housing nearby, though you need a car to live here (the light rail is opening 2017 to connect campus to downtown Charlotte)."

"MBA grad program is located in downtown Charlotte next to all the major business buildings, which is convenient for those who work and go to school in the evening. However for those who have to travel to get to school it is difficult to always be on time with the rush hour traffic coming both in and out of Charlotte.The teachers are friendly, challenging and somewhat flexible to students needs."

  • Degree: Accounting
"I have only taken two summer courses as prerequisites for the program, but already I feel that the professors are invested in my success, both on the CPA exam and in the job market. They have all worked very hard to ensure that we succeed both in the classroom and outside of it. For example, our faculty and staff have created a small professional development program for incoming students without undergraduate accounting degrees to help us understand what we can expect in the next several months as we prepare for the CPA exam and (hopefully) for interviews. And, of course, to help us answer a very important question...tax or audit?"
