Fitchburg State University Graduate Reviews

4 reviews
I am in the accelerated online MBA program at FSU.
Pros: Get your degree, this is a means to an end.
Cons: professors are less interested/focused on their students. It seems as though they don't care about their students as much and treat them with less respect that if they were to teach in person. Not the best experience. It seem professors treat students as though they are less intelligent than they are, perhaps because they do not meet in person.

Fitchburg is great academically, however, the area is really rough. I'd like to see the area surrounding the school be cleaned up. This is slowly happening, but it will take some time before FSU totally transforms that area....although it's well on its way.
I am getting a masters and it is a great school. It's cheap, but it still offers so many opportunities. The professors are great and the staff is friendly.
