Students Say

The AACSB-accredited MBA program at the University of North Dakota is "focused on offering students the resources they need for a flourishing future." Classes are offered in the afternoon, evening, and long distance and "can easily be fit into your busy schedule." Many students earn their degrees remotely, through a "convenient online MBA program." The curriculum at UND focuses on business technology with an opportunity to concentrate in international business. Due to the unique location of the school in Grand Forks, the middle of a large agricultural zone, students are exposed to both rural and big-city business. They are pleased with the school's state-of-the-art facilities, including modern computer labs and a marketing research center.

Professors are "dedicated and caring." They "take interest in students and truly care about them." Students say they are helpful and knowledgeable, and the small classroom size allows for real relationships to develop. They are respectable of students' lives outside the classroom and help them balance school and life. Professors also "do a very good job connecting the real world to the classroom." Students believe this is due to their work involvement outside of school. Most professors "have great experiences prior to their professorships and do an excellent job of sharing them." "Professors are always accessible and have an open-door policy." Students say they are "great mentors and will be lifelong connections." "So far every one of them has been helpful and engaging."

"The administration is professional and very well organized. Overall, my academic experience at the University of North Dakota has been superior to any other university I have attended." Students also like "the online tutoring center and the outstanding tech support." Most students agree things run smoothly. Although one student suggests UND could improve "by offering more sections of classes taught during day hours, rather than focusing on night classes."

Career Overview


Students Say

"The greatest strength of the University is its commitment to its students. There is no doubt in my mind that UND does everything in its power to help its students succeed." Career services at UND assist both undergraduate and graduate students with intern- ship and job placement. The office offers career counseling and hosts an annual career fair each fall. In the spring, it coordinates on-campus interview sessions. Some students wish there were a separate fair specifically for the College of Business and Public Administration. The three most popular career fields after graduation are manufactur- ing, the military, and financial services. "Life in Grand Forks is not as diversified as that in big cities. However, we have good social events and networks with the companies around the Midwest." The placement percentage for the business school (graduate and undergraduate) is 97.2 percent. UND alumni have high positions at some of the following companies: Bank of America, Coca-Cola, General Motors Defense, and Nodak Electric Cooperative.

Campus Life

Students Say

"Everyone I have met through the program has been very nice and good to work with," one student says. Students describe fellow students as "charismatic, dedicated, and intel- ligent," as well as "helpful" and "eager to learn." They enjoy working together and say they can learn a lot from each other. Most students seem to be commuters or involved in Internet courses; however, those who do live on campus have the option of living in the school's apartments and dormitories. Commuters remark on the location's conve- nience, but admit they do not really engage in life on campus. There is an MBA Student Association that organizes weekly discussions and other social activities for those who wish to participate. Also, "many activities and student organizations cross the line between undergraduate and graduate, so there is never a problem networking with stu- dents from a variety of disciplines." If students seek further recreation, the North Dakota Museum of Art is located right on the UND campus. Also, the school has a hockey team, which students "take pride in." They also mention that the "gym facility is outstanding."

Grand Forks is a city with a population of roughly 53,000 people. It sits on the western banks of the Red River of the North, just seventy-five miles south of Canada. An interna- tional student says North Dakota is "a safe and easygoing place where foreign students can easily concentrate on their studies and become familiar with American culture."
