See what students say:


The Mendoza College of Business at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana offers students at various stages of their careers a “strong brand,” “intellectually challenging” academics, “10/10” professors, an “outstanding alumni network,” and an underlying foundation of “integrity and ethics.” The two-year MBA program is composed of two seven-week modules in four semesters, which allows students to add electives and experiential learning. The one-year program is also highly ranked. The “curriculum and concentrations are set up very well,” with the required core classes offering a “good mix,” preparing students “for the types of questions…asked in interviews” and previewing the kind of work students will do in their summer internships. Faculty is “stellar,” particularly in the finance and accounting departments, and collectively are an “incredible blend of academi[cs]” and “industry leaders.” Mendoza offers signature classes like “Applied Investment Management” and “Business on the Frontlines” and generally espouses a philosophy of “business as a force for good.” This philosophy correlates with Notre Dame’s tradition as a mission-focused Catholic college. Some students have remarked that university administration could be “more supportive of the MBA program,” but, overall, does a decent job. The 2018-2019 year will usher in a new dean, and students report being “excited for the potential new vision the school” will pursue. The recent addition of the MBA/MS Business Analytics dual degree program reflects the growing trend across business schools in offering joint degree programs and specialization. Scholarship aid is “generous” and especially supportive of military veterans.
