Student Life

“Life at UT is comfortable,” students assure us. One praises, “Classrooms are clustered centrally so travel time between classes is quick. Most buildings have a computer lab, and the library has many quiet places to study. The fitness center is one of the largest I’ve seen for a college, and workouts are great. There aren’t too many students crowding resources, so long lines are never a problem.” If there’s one area that needs help, students tell us it’s the traffic and parking. One student warns, “There’s an extreme lack of park­ing available.... On days/nights when a major event such as a basketball or football game is going on, the school allows outsiders (nonstudents) to park on campus for a fee. This usually keeps students from being able to go to class as there’s so much spillover of vehi­cles sometimes that parking in grass or restricted areas is common. I’ve had to turn around and go home, missing class, due to not being able to park or to get through traffic in a timely manner to park.” To top it off, “The traffic situation on campus is horrendous.” Most students attend UT’s MBA program on a part-time basis, arriving after a full day of work. Consequently, they have little time or inclination to participate in activities other than classes and group projects. Full-time students tell us that “there are many organiza¬tions to be involved in if you choose to. There are also department social functions quite frequently that are highly advertised.” As for evenings and weekends, they are “what you make of them. Most people settle for simply just going to house parties or campus bars, which grows old fast. The downtown area offers good times, but most of that area is dead.” Toledo MBAs “come from diverse backgrounds, including majors, universities, religions, and ethnicity.” While they “are competitive in their pursuit of high-quality jobs,” they also enjoy “an atmosphere of mutual respect and teamwork between students in the program. Students are very comfortable approaching other students for help in their studies. In exchange, it is expected that every student pulls his or her own weight on the many team-based assignments.” About one in three students originates from outside the United States, “providing a unique and interesting perspective on major business topics of the day.”

Career

MBA students at Toledo may choose from an assortment of career support options. The school coordinates both academic graduate assistantships and corporate assistantships with employers like ProMedica Health System, Therma-Tru Doors, SSOE, Mercy Medical, Paramount Medical, and Goodwill. The school also sponsors regular network­ing events at which current students can meet and greet alumni. Finally, the Business Career Programs Office organizes on-campus recruiting, conducts mock interviews, per­forms resume reviews, provides counseling services, and manages a biannual Business Career Fair that brings more than 90 recruiters to campus. Recent employers of UT MBAs include Calphalon, Chrysler, Dana Corp., DTE Energy, Ernst & Young, GM Powertrain, KeyBank, Heartland Information Systems, Hickory Farms, National City Corporation, Owens Corning, Owens Illinois, and Pilkington.

Students Say

Offering a “good education at a very competitive price with convenient scheduling,” the College of Business and Innovation at The University of Toledo fits the needs of area businesspeople in search of a quality MBA. One student explains, “The program is very accommodating toward people who work full-time. The majority of classes are taught at night, so I have been able to continue to work full-time while taking one or two classes at night.” And, with a “low cost of living and low tuition fees when compared to other business schools,” a UT MBA isn’t a wallet buster. UT distinguishes its MBA program with a number of cutting-edge concentrations. Students here may specialize in CRM and marketing intelligence, human resource management, information systems, operations and supply chain management, and pro­fessional sales as well as in the more traditional areas of administration, finance, interna­tional business, and marketing. Still, students warn that despite this apparent variety of choices, “The grad-level courses are fairly limited, [with] not enough variety/electives available to really customize our education. Classes are usually only offered once per semester at one specific time, so time conflicts between class and work schedules are quite common.” Students agree that “the greatest strengths of the UT MBA program come from its peo­ple. Overall, students are helpful, and it is easy to make connections through classmates. Professors follow a 40-40-20 rule with their time: 40 percent on research, 40 percent on preparing for classes, and 20 percent on advising students. This allows teachers to be stu­dent-centric.” One student adds, “Receiving individual attention is a norm, be it in the Advising Office or from a professor.”
