Student Life

SJU “is a warm friendly community” of “mainly working professionals that take class at night. Though some full-time younger students are also involved.” Students are “kind,” “friendly,” “ambitious, and eager to learn something new.” Because of this, “conflicts during ‘group’ projects have been minimal.” “As a foreign student with some trouble to understand the US culture and language,” one international student says, “I get a lot of help with my patient fellow classmates and professors.” The SJU experience will vary depending on if you are a full-time, part-time, or online student. “Life at school allows students to network however due to the part-time nature of the program students try to be as efficient as possible with their time on campus,” one student reports. Although the “neighborhood is a little rough, and there is a history of crime around West Philadelphia,” students generally feel safe on campus. One student sums the SJU expe­rience up thusly: “I find that I am comfortable on campus, I feel welcomed, and I absolutely enjoy studying at the library and Post Learning Commons.”

Career

“SJU has a great reputation in the Philadelphia area and a strong alumni base,” and does a great job of helping students find work in the area. The professors, who “have more than twenty years of industry experience,” help create “a good base for a breadth of careers in business.” The career development center “serves the entire university and has no department specifically for graduate students” and some students suggest they do not put enough work into placement. Still between the large alumni network, the loca­tion in Philadelphia, and “companies recruiting on campus,” SJU students tend to find great work in Philadelphia and elsewhere.

Students Say

Saint Joseph University’s proud “Jesuit tradition” challenges students “intellectual abil­ities” while providing “a holistic business education.” “Saint Joseph’s University has a solid academic reputation and offers scheduling flexibility for working students.” The Finance program in particular has a “great reputation” especially in the Philadelphia area. SJU has “strong alumni ties in the region” and students love the location in one of America’s most famous Eastern cities. Students are very pleased with the “fairly priced” and “reasonable” tuition. “The part time MBA is flexible and recognized,” and the school offers the “freedom to attend classes online or on campus.” The Jesuit tradition is infused in SJU, something many students love. “The idea of social responsibility and teaching individuals for the greater good of society is a real focal point,” one student declares, “and I think that is something our country needs at the moment.”“Course offerings have been plentiful and variable (allowing the available times to easi­ly fit your work/home schedules),” one Project Management student reports. “Professors and Faculty are excellent,” although some complain the administration “sometimes makes questionable decisions related to the quality of students accepted into the program.” Others say “the administration is extremely helpful particularly regarding picking classes.” “Almost everyone is helpful and informative” and “you can tell the fac­ulty and staff really care and are passionate about the school.” Courses at SJU “[integrate] past and present business techniques and concepts.” As at many schools, your academ­ic experience “really comes down to which professors you have that make or break your experience.” Still, “generally the Professors are well rounded” and “very supportive of students.” “So far so good,” reports a Business and Finance student. “I am about to begin my third semester and have only great things to say about Saint Joseph’s University.” Another likens SJU to “the picture of a well-oiled machine” and says “from the moment I showed up at an information session until now, my 9th week of my first semester, every experience has been a positive one.”
