Students Say

For Philadelphia-area professionals looking to jump-start their careers, La Salle University School of Business "is a city school with a suburban feel." The MBA program maintains "high expectations" while creating a "class setting [that] is intimate and inviting." La Salle's professors and administrators truly "understand the working student who is trying to balance work, life, and schooling." "La Salle University offers an excellent program with great flexibility for working family members," one part-time MBA student explains. "Satellite schools conveniently located around the suburbs of Philadelphia," so students can attend class close to work or home. Evening and Saturday classes along with intersession and summer courses "help students complete their degrees in a reasonable amount of time." Online and hybrid classes can provide students with full-time jobs or other obligations with greater flexibility as well.

La Salle offers students "small class sizes with professors [who are] willing to help." Students appreciate that their professors "are also practitioners, so their real-life experiences are great resources," and they "are very good at integrating real-life business situations into our classwork." As one student explains, La Salle professors "make every project or assignment team-oriented and simulate a true business environment." In addition to "teamwork or group projects in every single class," "presentation skills" are also an important part of the curriculum and "almost every class makes you get up and present." Overall, La Salle students report that their professors are "amazing," "[dedicated] and eager to help."

The main campus has recently completed "a new state-of-the art busi- ness building" that provides students "with food stands, computer/printer labs, MBA lounge, and [. . .] an environment to gather together to study, work on projects, collabo- rate, set up meetings, and socialize." The student body is "mostly working adults, many managing families, with school and full-time jobs." This "very diverse group of students, many from different countries and different industries," are all "friendly," "driven, and willing to work hard in their classes." Students rave about their classmates and find it "a pleasure to attend class after working all day with such good people."
