Duke University Graduate Reviews

9 reviews
Duke University has a multitude of opportunities and connections. For graduate students, the health insurance is mostly ok, but not great. Overall, the departments care about the academic growth of their students. However, the university spent quite a bit of money on lawyers to stop the graduate students from unionizing as well as holding a student vote on whether to do so in a way that was completely biased. I would also check how much funding a program provides in comparison to the average length of the program (not what it should be, but how long students are actually taking). The continuing tuition fees for ABD graduate students are very high compared to fees at similar level institutions. I would suggest any prospective student look to see if the school/program will teach them the skills and provide a path with adequate support towards their goal.

Duke offers me so much more than what I expected, with various classes offered, flexibility to collaborate and dive into interdisciplinary projects, various certificates and programs to choose from, to friendly and accomodating stuffs in academic, administration, and even nutritionists and mental help. The campus is breathtaking with amazing library and high quality of food provided.
Choosing Duke is definitely one of the best decisions I have made.
It’s a very good school, but they tend to focus solely on the programs that everyone wants to get into and are known for. I was a student in another business masters and we got maybe 10% of the resources the MBA kids got; we weren’t even allowed to join their student-run clubs
