I am currently getting my MS in Industrial Management and my experience at UT Tyler has been very good so far. Though it is a relatively small school, it has state-of-art technology and a low student-teacher ratio, which allows you to build a good understanding with faculty members; not to mention it is part of the giant UT system. The Graduate School at UT Tyler tries its level best to provide New Graduate Fellowships to most of the applicants/returning students, which makes the tuition fees very less (around $4k per semester) and arranges job fairs to enable students get jobs as soon as they graduate. If you are looking to get your Masters degree in management, UT Tyler is your best bet!
Review University of Texas - Tyler
I am currently in the UTeach program to become a math teacher for 4th-8th grade. I have only attended UT Tyler for a year, but I transferred from another college were I just didn't have a great experience. First off, the people on this campus are so friendly! I have always been nervous of not making friends in my classes and I haven't had a problem here on this campus. The teachers I have had so far have all been incredible. I even have an adjunct teacher which means he isn't there for the money (as most teachers aren't because the pay isn't incredible) but his wife is a doctor so he doesn't need to be there, he just loves to teach! The school really cares about your education and getting you onto a career path and they have so many events and such to help you along the way. It has really been a great school and I can't wait to further my education here and become a teacher!
The University of Texas at Tyler is a great school to go to! It provides greats academics, sports, and diversity. It is an easy school to get involved in with all of the on-camous Activities and groups, such as the Campus Activities Board or Student Government! The University of Texas at Tyler is a championship school and is close in academics to UT in Austin! I am glad I went here and I hope that more people decide to go to sister schools of bigger Universities!
