See what students say:


The Isenberg School of Management at the University of Massachusetts Amherst offers a flexible MBA degree with the backing and resources of one of the nation’s top research universities. Students have the option of a Full-Time, Online, or Part-Time MBA; every Full-Time student receives a two-year Fellowship that entirely funds their degree, making it “extremely affordable and beneficial,” and Part-Time MBA students have the option of completing two courses before the program begins, as well as attending classes at one of the satellite campuses. All new students begin their MBA program with a three-day Leadership Orientation Session, also known as “MBA bootcamp,” where they learn soft skills, complete team building exercises, and listen to a panel of Isenberg alumni talk about career paths. Students can choose from a number of focus areas (including Business Analytics, Healthcare Administration, and Sports Management), and the hybrid style of learning involving theory, hands-on practice, and working with companies facing real life business challenges means that “classwork is challenging but valuable.” “[Members of the] administration often are very close with students” and are “easily accessible and always looking to improve the student experience.”

Isenberg professors “do an amazing job and clearly care about students’ success.” Either within or outside class, they “are very open to assisting students”; the program is very much run like an organization where “communication and teamwork is essential,” which “truly prepares the students to hit the ground running once they are within their respective industries.” The program is “designed to build a community that works together and creates a whole that is better than the sum of its parts.”
