1. How has your time at the University helped prepare you for success? Do you have a job/grad school lined up?

Participating in various events over the two years has helped me improve my presentation and event management skills. The call campaigns every semester which required calling students from 10-15 different countries helped me improve my customer service, sales and marketing skills. The team environment at the admissions office as well as the class room helped me learn how to work in a team environment. The College of Business has helped me become an international citizen. I am pretty sure I will be able to get a job in any country I want in this world. I am so lucky to have done my MBA from University of New Haven. I highly recommend University of New Haven to all the international students!

Great academic programs and great faculty and staff. Military affiliated and friendly school. Overall great environment, although the food on campus could be better. Great internship opportunities too!
While I only gave four stars to the university, it's only because nothing is perfect. Many times I hear some of my peers say "this school sucks", "this school has done nothing for me", but here is what I have to say to that, you are an adult. The University of New Haven has given me so many opportunities in the real world with internships and volunteer work. As a Sport Management major, the professors in my department are dedicated to making sure that we leave the university with the ability to get a full time job. They really do care about you and it just isn't the Sport Management department. YOU need to put yourself out there and get the help you need, there are plenty of guests speakers, social events, professional events that are going on campus. As I said previously, you are an adult, you need to make things happen for yourself. Yes, there are some professors that are questionably still teaching at the university but, that can go for every college. I would recommend going here.
