I have recently completed the MBA program at Utica College and I have had such an amazing and fulfilling experience! Academically, the professors are extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Everything I learned, I was able to apply to my current job. The hybrid program was extremely flexible and made it possible to work and go to school full time.

It is friendly environment. The professors and office workers are all very understanding of you ever have a problem. Any time I’ve emailed a professor for problems such as finding cheaper books or questions about honework they have always given me great options that come as a benefit to myself. It’s a small campus which makes it very easy to know more people and navigate easily if you are new. The cafeteria has so many options and there are many healthy options as well. I am apart of a women’s fraternity that I recently joined so we are able to be involved in many on campus functions and provided by the school with anything we made need. I really enjoy attending this college. Although it is private which means higher costs for certain accommodations, they always try to find grants and scholarships to aid students if they are in need and will always try to find more ways to help their students.
This college is filled with nice and friendly people who are willing to help you. The custodians keep the campus clean, and the professors know what they are doing. The food at any dining services is the best! The library is so quiet where I'm able to do my homework without any distractions. I recommend this college to anyone who is thinking about going to college after high school.
