Student Life

Students brag that UD is a collegial campus, the sort of place where “every time you pass someone, whether that be a student, professor, or even the custodial staff, a pleasant ‘Hello, how is your day?’ is exchanged. This allows for a comfort in the classroom that, in turn, allows for education beyond the text to flourish.” This open dialogue is equally available to international students; writes one from France, “UD is reputed for taking care of its international students. I knew before my arrival here that faculty and staff would be very accessible and helpful, and that I would be individually recognized by them.” SBA accommodates “a lot of MBA social events and opportunities as well as seminars for career and professional skill development,” while the university at large offers “plenty of activities organized by the students and university-sponsored events that give the stu­dents plenty of options to take a break and get away from school work for a while.” While “there is an overwhelming majority of Caucasian students” here, there are also “students from France, Germany, China, and various racial minorities as well. Age cov­ers the vast spectrum from recent graduate to retired. Non-traditional students mix well with young professionals.”

Students Say

Students tell us that UD’s integrated curriculum “is one of…the program’s biggest strengths. It is unlike what any school in the region is offering, and it results in a more thorough educational experience.” The school’s program typically include an emphasis on “new management techniques. The Toyota Way and Lean Manufacturing are very popular” here. Students also boast of UD’s “Marianist identity and values, which leads to a great sense of family. Students, staff and faculty are really close to one another. People help each other a lot.” As one MBA explains, “If I get a B, someone is asking me what they can do to help. If I get an A, someone is asking me if I can help them, and I always agree. We’re a team, no doubt.”One student reports that he is “really impressed by all the opportunities UD provides its students with outside classes. Its entrepreneurship program is supported by out-of-class valuable experiences. For example, the Business Plan Competition…offers us the possi­bility to create a real business plan and to receive funds to implement it. I also heard finance students telling me that they can’t believe that they are allowed to manage mil­lions of dollars on behalf of UD at the Davis Center. I really like being able to turn my theoretical knowledge into practical experience at UD, because now, I feel more confi­dent that I will be able to apply what I learned to real-life situations.” The University provides students with numerous chances to broaden their business resumes. One student reports that he is “really impressed by all the opportunities UD provides its students with outside classes.... For example, the Business Plan Competition offers...us the possibility to create a real business plan and to receive funds to implement it...I really like being able to turn my theoretical knowledge into practical experience at UD, because now, I feel more confident that I will be able to apply what I learned to real-life situation.” UD also offers a very popular five-year bachelor’s in Accounting/MBA program in which University of Dayton undergraduates are “able to achieve 150 hours for the CPA exam and get an MBA degree.” The school’s “administration is good and getting better” and “cares about what the students think,” professors are “passionate and well-prepared leaders who are engaging and challenging,” and students enjoy “many opportunities to gain experience in your particular field, whether with student organizations, access to alumni, or career/academic development programs and workshops.” With all that going for the school, it’s no wonder students tell us that “UD’s MBA program is probably one of the best-kept secrets in Ohio.”
