Student Life

Pacific’s enthusiastic students dole out praises for their diligent classmates, saying, “Fellow students are both driven and work as a team. Together, we hope to succeed and push past boundaries.” Due to the intense cohort format, “each class that comes through is extremely close-knit and shares their experiences like a single unit.” A current MBA can­didate elaborates, “Students are very genuine and really look out for one another. Because we spend all week together, many students have found strong friendships and even busi­ness partners for future ventures.” While the school draws a few students from further a field, “the MBA student population is predominantly local—though they may have orig­inated from somewhere else.” Based in the mid-size city of Stockton, California, “The campus is like a world of its own within the community”—a place where students feel comfortable studying and relaxing. To burn off steam, MBA students can participate in “intramural sports like evening bas­ketball and flag football that are played against other schools on campus.” Thursdays are a popular night for gatherings, and “the MBAs also spend a lot of time together outside of campus at dinner and studying.” Attracting a younger crowd, some say the school could “try to make more programs available for full-time working students and their fam­ilies.” One explains, “Being a father and husband, my time is very limited. There are sev­eral times that I would’ve liked to involve my wife and children in my school activities, but that seemed out of place.”

Career

Career development is directly incorporated into the Eberhardt School’s curriculum. Throughout the first term, students are required to take a weekly Career Development course to help them build a job search strategy and prepare for the professional world. Students are also required to complete a summer business internship, which offers the opportunity to build real-world skills and contacts. In addition, the Career Management Center hosts various on-campus recruiting events and interviews. Located a stone’s throw away from the San Francisco Bay Area, the Silicon Valley and the state capital of Sacramento, “the network of contacts built from attending is excellent.” The average stu­dent interviews with about seven different companies and receives two job offers by graduation. Recent employers of MBA graduates include Clorox, E & J Gallo, Blue Shield, FDIC, KPMG, Twitter, and William Sonoma. Within the business school, the administration is eager to present new professional opportunities to its students. In addition to online resources, “Several times a week we get emails for job and intern openings.” In fact, a current student shares, “I get more emails about job openings than anything else from USM. While I am employed, it’s nice to see what other opportunities are available in the local market.”

Students Say

Located in Stockton, California, University of the Pacific is a distinctive private college that boasts a “very high standing both academically and professionally throughout our local community and state.” Ideal for early-career professionals, the school’s full-time program allows students from a range of academic backgrounds “to obtain an MBA in a highly inten­sive and challenging program.” Fast-paced and efficient, the first term is “an intensive phase 17-unit semester broken down into eight modules. This intensive phase allows students to learn the fundamentals necessary for a business degree and requires spending most of the students’ time at school.” During this time, students are placed “in a cohort . . . and share all required classes.” Therefore, each entering class is incredibly tight-knit, creating a unique learning environment. A current student explains, “This cohort of students is a wide array of culturally- and educationally-diverse students coming from various countries and expe­rience levels. These factors contribute to an intellectually challenging classroom experience [that] goes beyond traditional book- or case-based classes.” In addition to traditional busi­ness students, the “MBA program offers joint programs with Pacific’s PharmD and JD pro­grams…having the interaction from the other schools is a great resource.” After the first term, Eberhardt School’s MBA program follows a typical semester model, with a more “moderate workload.” At that point, students can tailor their educational experiences by choosing electives in entrepreneurship, finance, healthcare management, sport manage­ment, or marketing. They also take advantage of “the unique opportunity to study abroad in another country,” through the school’s Global Business Competition, or specialize in interna­tional issues through the school’s Master's International MBA Program in cooperation with the Peace Corps. Future finance mavens can also hone their skills through the school’s $2.6 million Eberhardt Student Investment Fund. While University of the Pacific and the Eberhardt School boast many world-class opportunities, students are most impressed by the small and intimate feeling that pervades this intimate Northern California school. With a stu­dent-faculty ratio of 16 to 1, “The greatest strengths of this school are the small classroom sizes [and] the professors’ willingness to help students and get to know them on a one-on­one basis.” A current student agrees, “I have been pleased with the teacher’s performance and one-on-one help outside of classrooms. Teachers really take the time to make sure stu­dents understand the material and frequently check to make sure everyone is on the same page.” Another adds, “Students are always welcome to question or seek help from profes­sors and the professors offer a more peer-to-peer interaction, rather than the typical student-teacher relationship, which further encourages a beneficial educational experience.” In addi­tion to their friendliness and accessibility, Pacific professors are strong class leaders. On the whole, students are “very impressed with the quality of the teaching,” saying their profes­sors are “professional and can apply the material to real-life situations.”
