Students Say

The Crummer Graduate School of Business offers three MBA programs which each cater to professionals at different stages in their career. The Executive MBA meets only on Saturdays and is designed for midto senior-level professionals, while the other two options draw individuals with less than a decade of work experience. The Early Advantage program draws recent college grads looking to get a head start on their career, while the Professional MBAs work during the day and then take evening classes two nights a week. Knowing that most people are working and busy, “everybody in the administration is always available to you” and the “students are truly the customers.” “Everybody knows your name. We see the dean everywhere and he always participates in activities with us,” says a student.
Professors are top notch, bringing “a wealth of real world experience to the classroom.” They “represent a wide range of cultures, industry experience, and research expertise in different fields,” and “repeatedly publish in renowned journals.” The curriculum is “very methodical,” and follows an order of classes that build on each other, preparing you for the next courses. “We are thoroughly trained, challenged everyday, [and] exposed to real-life situations,” says a student. “They understand what we are wanting to do upon graduation and are very helpful to teach us the tools to apply our knowledge in the business world.” Due to the small size of the school there are somewhat “limited class offerings, and some of the niche classes do no occur due to limited registrations.”

The course involves readings and lecture/discussion sessions that introduce critical issues of sustainable development and environmental strategy faced by global enterprises, followed by an international immersion experience that will consist of a series of lectures complemented by field trips, and company site visits. This course begins in the latter half of the fall term. The international trip takes place during the first two weeks of January, prior to the start of the spring term. Final post-trip assignments would be due before the middle of the spring term.

Students Say

The Rollins MBA reputation is strong within Florida (particularly nearby Orlando), and the Career Resource Center understands that their students’ reasons for attending Crummer and their job aspirations are different across its three programs. All Early Advantage students are required to complete a one-on-one career strategy session, mock interview, and an MBA-level internship. Career aid given to Professional and Executive MBA students tends to be more toward job strategy development, networking, and assessment. Both Early Advantage and Professional MBA students may participate in Rollins MBA Global Consulting projects (which include a one-week trip abroad to conduct field research). Crummer “offers a wide variety of things for students to do that involved every aspect of business—from finance to consulting to entrepreneurship,” and “really help[s] you learn more about what you are interested in through firsthand experience.” Top employers of Rollins grads include The Walt Disney Co., SAP, Siemens Energy, Fidelity Investments, and CNL Financial Group, Inc.

Campus Life

Students Say

The “beautiful campus” is situated in the historic city of Winter Park in sunny Florida, knocking a level of stress off of life immediately. As ages of students range from mid-20s to early 40s, “this brings many different perspectives” and there is an “even mix of competitive students and ‘average’ students” who “can all communicate openly.” Cohorts tend to be tight-knit, and, as each program is team-centric and presentation-based, students continue with the same team throughout their entire tenure at the school and “form a family-like bond.”
Many of the Executive MBA students are only present on Saturdays, while the other two programs tend to spend more time with classmates in both work and social environments when projects allow. “The quality of life and balance between my work and personal life is fantastic,” says one student of the workload. “It’s very comparable to a 9–5 workload, which is good preparation for the business world.” There are “so many clubs that you want to be a part of, there just aren’t enough hours in the day.”
