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.

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.
I have nothing but positive things to say about Utica College. They set an initiative for private schools by cutting their tuition price by 55 percent! The facilities and staff are outstanding. The classrooms are average sized, and you can also get help if you ask. The student classes all strive to achieve excellence in academics and athletics. It has a great atmosphere and very homely feeling to the college experience.
