My time at Fitchburg State Umiversity was really great. I graduated with an MBA and learned quite a bit. Professors, for the most part, were VERY good. Lots of concern for student success and lots of support. Administration was also good. Advising could use some improvement but it was satisfactory. In summation, great educational experience with a very good and rigorous academic program. Would do it again.

I absolutely loved the school, campus, professors, department and staff. Extremely helpful MBA program coordinators. Professors go out of way to help and provide assistance. Program itself requires a lot of work (expected and not an easy program and does require effort, time and interest). You have to write a lot (so be prepared). IT support and facilities are great. Campus is beautiful and not far from Boston. Loved the experience and highly encourage others.
