Students Say

The Mendoza College of Business at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana offers students at various stages of their careers excellent academics, a solid alumni base, strong community, and a focus on values such as integrity and ethics. Each of the four semesters in the Two-Year MBA program is composed of two seven-week modules, which allows students to add electives and experiential learning; the "pace of the module format is fast; however, it opens the availability up for more classes, which is important." Students also have an opportunity every semester to enroll in an intensive weeklong course that allows them to broaden their expertise or study abroad. Fellowship and group work are "emphasized heavily," and students can take a dual concentration and other courses to deepen their knowledge. While the first year is "extremely heavy on core coursework" and much time finding an internship, the second year of business school "is more about learning and application."

Professors at Mendoza "have a great understanding of not just the material from a theoretical perspective, but can relate what is important in the real world as well." They "understand that business school is a place where you can learn from mistakes, and frequently place you in positions beyond your capabilities in an environment where it's OK to fail." The small class sizes bring students together and allows for everyone "to really get to know each other, as we literally have classes (at some point during our time here) with everyone else in our class." On top of the fantastic faculty, the administration is "always looking to improve the school from a curriculum standpoint and quality standpoint to meet the ever-changing needs of students and the market."

Students Say

Mendoza has a "helpful familial atmosphere" of people "seeking to grow and learn," in which "there aren't any sharp elbows." "Mendoza Students are the type that, in a zero-sum job interview, would work together to give each other the best chance at landing the job rather than work individually and competing," says one. Clubs are "easily accessible" and offer "great guidance to industry knowledge, specific skillsets, and even interviews with SME and industry experts." Everyone "lives close to campus and many live in similar buildings," and the academic workload (apart from a few specific classes) is "as difficult as each student wants it to be," so "there are ample opportunities for students to spend as much time with fun events as they can manage." There are regular community activities "like Monday night bowling and an occasional weekend day golf-scramble," as well as intramural sports, attending sporting events, speakers, and more. Football Saturdays are the biggest event during the fall, and "the mood of the school lives and dies with the success of the football team.
