Graduate students get a good return on their investment at Montclair State University, an “affordable” public school with an “up-and-coming business program” near New York City. Having recently reworked their graduate curriculum, Montclair ’s Feliciano School of Business offers several distinct MBA options on its New Jersey campus: an evening program, an Executive MBA and a Hybrid Saturday MBA. For all three programs, the school has introduced a “redesigned cohort-based MBA,” through which students complete a comprehensive core curriculum in tandem with a small group of classmates. The structure encourages greater interaction and networking between MBA candidates—a huge asset to the experience, given that “fellow students are competent, pleasant to work with, and provide an engaging atmosphere in the classroom.” A new online MBA is offered beginning in Fall 2016.

Beyond classroom instruction, the Montclair MBA curriculum provides a “complete educational experience,” from the ongoing executive speaker series to the “foundations toolbox,” an online resource to help students prepare for the MBA. For a global perspective, students participate in a nine to ten day “international [study] trip,” an intensive course taught overseas, which focuses on the political and cultural aspects of global business. While the program offers a range of excellent resources, prospective students should carefully review the course offerings before enrolling, to ensure a cohort structured program is the correct fit for them. On the whole, “the administration for the MBA has been very receptive to students.” Whenever a problem arises, “the MBA office is very quick in their responses and follow up.”

Thanks to the small class size, “you do not get lost in the crowd” at Montclair, and “the professors do seem to offer a lot of assistance outside of class.” The majority of the “professors are outstanding,” though students admit that while there are “rock stars,” a few professors can be lacking. In particular, finance and accounting professors get good marks from students, and “the economics professors are above average.” Essential to working adults, practical education is a focus in the coursework; in the classroom, professors “use their real life experiences to teach us and get us up to date.”
