Students Say

Monmouth University, located in West Long Branch, New Jersey, was founded in 1933 “to provide opportunity for higher education to area high school graduates who, in those Depression-era days, could not afford to go away to college.” This tradition of accessibility remains a cornerstone of Monmouth University’s mission. Many students in the MBA program also received their undergraduate degrees from Monmouth University, and listed location, convenience, competitiveness, and good professors as the primary strengths of Monmouth University’s Leon Hess Business School.Students note that “[s]ince Monmouth University is a smaller institution …the administrators and professors get to know their students on a more personal level, and are very interested in helping them achieve their academic goals.” “Professors are easy to gain access to” and “[w]illing to help.” The small campus setting “allows each student to get one-on-one time with professors and administrators.” They “are always there whether…via email, phone call, or meeting up at a time that is convenient.”

Professors are “very knowledgeable in their fields” and their real life work experience “gives them the chance to share real-life business scenarios with students” and discuss “how particular topics were handled.” Students found this much more helpful than “just reading case studies or chapters in a text book.” Monmouth offers “vast course offerings and times,” and students say that the administration “will add classes if multiple students need them” and that both professors and the administration are “very accommodating to working professionals.” One student found the professors helpful, but thought the material they taught was “dated,” and the classes “easy and unchallenging.”

In addition, students have access “to a variety of ‘real world’ experts,” including the “H.R. Young Lecture Series, the Accounting Club Speakers, the Finance Club Speaker, the S.B. Siegel Lecture Series.”

Graduates Employed by Region


Students Say

“The connections the university creates are wonderful,” says one student, and “they allow so much opportunity for employment.” “Since it is a smaller school, most admin- istrators and professors know students by name and even know some of their personal and academic goals,” says another. Many students found their professors helpful in get- ting internships and jobs. Graduates have gone on to fill a wide range of positions from accountant to senior executive in various industries, and the university counts among its alumni a three-time Olympic Gold Medalist and captain of the U.S. Soccer team as well as a US federal judge.

Campus Life

Students Say

The Monmouth University campus is a National Historic Landmark, as well as the former site of U.S. President Woodrow Wilson’s summer home. Students say the 158- acre campus is “beautiful” and “very active.” There are “many things to do on and off campus” and “they are constantly holding events, groups, clubs, and opportunities for employment.” Past activities have included “trips to the beach, Broadway plays, and even a tour of the NYSE.” Noting its close proximity to the Jersey Shore, one student states: “When you study near the beach there is never a downfall!”

Students “seem genuinely interested in being there and participating, which makes the experience enjoyable,” though some found their fellow students lacking in “work expe- rience” and “immature.” A few students noted that there wasn’t much interaction with fellow students outside of classes since so many students commute or work full-time, but a portion of the younger students are “local to the area, so it’s easy to get together outside of class or see one another in public places, which helps create positive relationships.” Students appreciate that due to the small size of the school “a lot of students are in the same classes together” and this allows students to “get comfortable working in groups and also enables them to take away more from each class.”
