Students Say

There’s no doubt that University of New Hampshire offers future MBAs an unbeatable combination of “relatively low tuition” and a “great reputation.” Students here truly value both the “flexibility” afforded by the part-time program and the opportunity to accelerate one’s studies with the “full-time, one year program.” Moreover, they greatly appreciate having the ability to take courses in “Durham, Manchester or online.” UNH MBA students are also quick to laud the “challenging” curriculum, one that’s wholly “relevant to today’s world economy.” They also point to the “diverse” course offerings as a major strength. As one delighted student shares, “I have an environmental science background and was excited to find many professors specializing in corporate sustainability.”

Indeed, a lot of student satisfaction derives from “amazing” professors who tend to “come from very different backgrounds.” Students love that instructors here “actively discuss current business events and help us to apply our classroom learning to real-life situations.” Just as crucial, they are “approachable and knowledgeable about the subject matter [they teach.]” And, importantly, UNH professors are “accommodating and flexible with their office hours in order to provide extra help when needed.”

Students Say

The Paul College of Business and Economics boasts “an incredible job placement rate.” And it’s easy to understand why. To begin with, current MBA students at UNH are quick to highlight an extensive alumni network that’s “fantastic [when it comes to] assisting with job searches, informational interviews, advice, etc.” Of course, they can also turn to the stellar Career Services Office. There they can work with career counselors who help ensure that students have the necessary tools for a successful search. Specifically, MBAs can use the office for everything from resume workshops to mock interviews. And the Career Services Office assists students in securing jobs and internships in New England, across the country and around the world.

Campus Life

Students Say

University of New Hampshire’s b-school continually manages to net some “extremely intelligent, hard-working, insightful, friendly [and] competitive” students. Perhaps most essential to a positive and rewarding experience, students here “are always willing to help each other out in their respective studies.” As a grateful first-year shares, “All of us want each other to succeed and will offer help when needed.” And, importantly, they also bring a “diverse set of experiences to the program which [can be] very [useful].”

Overall, “UNH is a very vibrant campus.” Indeed, there “are excellent resources available to all students, as well as exclusive resources for the MBA’s.” We’re also told that “there is a fantastic social aspect here. Greek life, clubs, sports teams, and political associations are booming.” In addition, the “NH Seacoast is full of awesome opportunities for work and play.” However, these things are more likely the provenance of the full-time students; part- time MBAs typically go to work, go to class and then head home.
