Student Life

With a total MBA enrollment of approximately 200, “students are a small community, so everybody knows everybody.” Close to several major cities, “the school’s location allows for a good mix of students to attend,” and Monmouth students join the program “from a variety of professions” and life experiences. While a good number of students come “right after undergrad,” others are “older professionals” or young adults who “have worked for several years.” “Many students work during the day,” and spend little time on campus beyond classes. However, group assignments encourage students to work together and network. On the whole, Monmouth graduate students say their classmates are “friendly, sociable, and open-minded.”For those who like extracurricular experiences, “there are some interesting activities” within the business school, including international student organizations and a series of guest speakers. Students also take advantage of the greater campus environment, which offers a wonderful collegiate culture. “One of the many wonderful things about Monmouth is the Woods Theatre, which features adorable ‘cozy’ productions in a quaint little theatre right on campus.” Monmouth’s “stunning campus” is located “a mile to the beach and hour to NYC or Philly.” In addition to the obvious benefits of the Jersey Shore, students appreciate the school’s “geographic convenience to all of Monmouth and Ocean County.”

Career

Monmouth’s MBA program was traditionally geared toward working professionals, who are “getting their MBA to advance their careers.” These students are rarely looking to leave their current jobs, and some are even receiving tuition assistance from their employers. In recent years, the school has added a full-time program, and is working to keep pace with the growing need for strong career services. Students note that, “Monmouth has a great placement program for MBA honors accounting students,” say­ing “it would be wonderful to see this type of service extended to all business concentra­tion areas, as it is so very successful.”All graduate business students have access to the Career Services department at Monmouth University’s Center for Student Success. Career Services staff can offer career counseling, job search strategies, and resume reviews. They also maintain an online job board and host an annual career fair. While these events present some opportunities, stu­dents feel that the school “needs to be more involved with the business community” in the region.

Students Say

A small school in West Long Branch, New Jersey, Monmouth University operates an MBA program suitable to students at every phase of their careers. All Monmouth MBA candidates complete the same core curriculum, with the opportunity to tailor their edu­cation through a concentration in health administration, or by completing a series of courses in the finance track, the accounting track, or the commercial real estate track. Students may also elect a general MBA program, choosing from assorted electives to complete their post-core course credits. In addition to being “one of the very few schools with a concentration in healthcare management,” Monmouth’s curriculum has a strong focus on international business and ethics. With all classes held mainly in the evenings with a few on Saturday, Monmouth’s “sched­uling offers flexibility for those who are working full time or have families.” Some would like to see “more hybrid and online classes” to better accommodate their busy schedules, though there is an “emphasis on group work in the classroom,” which would be difficult to replicate electronically. In addition to their long-standing, part-time MBA program (which classically catered to working professionals), Monmouth has recently introduced an accelerated full-time MBA, which can be completed in just a year. Students say the program runs smoothly, and “the administration is very willing and available to talk about any questions or concerns.” Whether it’s financial aid or scheduling, the “school’s administration is helpful in solving day-to-day issues, especially for international stu­dents.” Beyond the availability of the faculty and staff, students also praise Monmouth’s “affordability,” saying tuition is lower than at regional public schools.Academically, “professors are a diverse group,” running the gamut from lifetime aca­demics to real-world professionals. Instructors with business credentials usually empha­size the “application of principles to real-world situations” and often incorporate “per­sonal experiences to enrich the course and make it easy to understand.” Others “just teach from slides,” offering little class discussion or interaction with students. Even so, Monmouth generally offers its students more personalized attention than they would get at a larger program. Many classes are discussion based, allowing “close interaction with the professors,” as well as classmates. Classes are “focused on helping students learn the material and not just memorizing facts in order to pass the exams.” If a student is strug­gling academically, “the professors always show concern for students’ progress and are available to answer questions whether it’s over the phone, by email, or by appointment during office hours.” With few exceptions, “professors are available outside of the class­room for help or review.”
