Student Life

The location of the “beautiful” campus (not far from Orlando) is “fabulous,” and the school's reach into the community is “unparalleled,” as well. The small size (cohorts are typically 30-50 students) creates “a familial atmosphere,” and “you can enjoy your free time near the lake or at swimming pool or just sit and chat with your friends.” Students tend to be focused on class, but “try hard to not let the course load take over their lives.” “Everyone has other things going on outside of school,” says one. Rollins tends to cater to students a few years out of undergrad, so “one of the defining qualities of the school is our youth.” Along with that comes “a bevy of bright ideas, high energy, and a very com­petitive environment.” There “really is room for anything that a student wants to do,” and the administration is happy to assist with club organizations and encourages the forma­tion of new groups. “My overall academic experience has been tough, fair, and very rewarding,” says a student.

Career

“Rollins is run like a professional business,” and challenging coursework by day is com­plimented by “social and networking events by night.” The lauded career center is “absolutely essential” in helping students to find internships and jobs, and there are “ample networking opportunities” in this regionally prestigious program. Many agree that quite a few events and resources seem “geared for young, just-graduated students,” and the school could stand to recognize “that there are a lot of returning students. even in the early advantage program.” Because students are not graded on a curve, “there is a strong feeling of camaraderie.” In addition, the alumni network is “small but very strong”: “Most executives in Florida have graduated from Rollins and all are willing to network with students.” Top employers of Rollins grads include The Walt Disney Co., SAP, Siemens Energy, Fidelity Investments, and CNL Financial Group, Inc.

The Princeton Review

Students Say

The Rollins College Crummer School of Business is a small school that offers personalized attention and a growing national reputation that “will only get stronger in the coming years.” The school offers a “top entrepreneurship and career development center,” Six Sigma certification, and has a strong international business offering that is particularly germane to its Florida location, which is “quickly becoming a hub for international busi­ness, especially with Latin America.” Teaching is socratic, and “the level of inclusion and the depth of the courses” mean that students are constantly “learning at a rapid rate.”Rollins uses a team-based approach and experiential learning in order to increase the practicality of the degree, and the “very challenging and intense” first year cohort compo­nent sees the creation of student teams that last the entire the entire year. There is a good balance between reading, research, teamwork (“an integral part of the MBA program”) and exams, and “students need to be proficient in many types of communication includ­ing verbal, written, and non-verbal.” The school pressures students “to prioritize acqui­sition of knowledge over grades,” although the relationship between them is also well-recognized and acknowledged.Rollins offers three MBA programs: the Early Advantage MBA, which is a full-time day program for recent college graduates and career changers; the Professional MBA, for peo­ple with more work experience (and who often continue working throughout); and the Executive MBA, for mid- to senior-level professionals. The “always available” faculty are former or current business professionals “[who] have had very impressive careers in their respective fields” and are “quick to offer advice based on their own personal experience.” They “clearly have a vested interest in the success of their students,” and “contribute impressive and diverse backgrounds to their different areas of focus.”
