Degree: Finance

I entered the program in January 2017, being sold to me as a great Master in Finance and number 5 within the USA. The information provided to me was false. Employers were knowledgeable of the program. I was one of the few locals, and everyone else was mainly International using the program to extend their residency in the USA, and this was mainly promoted when they bought the program. The program was outdated. In 2017, Florida suffered from Hurricane Irma. Half of the program was cut in half, but... Read More

Degree: Economics

Admin is money hungry and will find any way to charge you and hold charges against you no matter what. The enrollment center can't even follow their own rules for their student petition, because circumstances that are out of students' control aren't enough for them to accommodate simple requests, even when it states they are covered. Making me pay $5000 for classes I can't even take? Very disappointed in how they handled and decided on the situation. Steer clear of FIU. Already pulled out all future... Read More

I like FIU overall, the only negative thing I find about it is that they should have a College of Pharmacy for those wanting the PharmD I think they should expand in that area because other universities are in other cities and they tend to be more expensive

FIU is a mix of great professors and horrible professors, but unfortunately my experience here has been mostly with the latter. Professors here tend to be condescending, elitist, unhelpful, and not at all concerned with student's needs. The administrative faculty (advisors, etc) are similar, with most showing up to work simply to collect a paycheck with no percieved interest or care for students. I transferred to FIU with 29 credit hours from a top-rated private university, and was only credited... Read More

I have gone through so many different scenarios in which FIU has been the least helpful they could possibly be. The entire staff either doesn't know anything or doesn't put any effort into helping you figure it out. YOU WILL HAVE TO FIGURE EVERYTHING OUT ON YOUR OWN. When I say ABSOLUTELY no guidance, I cant stress that enough. From signing up to classes to speaking with academic advisors, the application process, study abroad, just about anything you can think of, the administration makes it a POINT... Read More

Very expensive! The fee for Florida Residence is too expensive and staff never know the answer. Most of the staff are students who need to improve their customer service skills. Most faculties have an attitude of "I don't care" (Very few are kind and understand their student). Covid-19 brought lots of stress and yet, teachers disregard the issues, especially, Online teachers who are completely taking for granted the many situations that we are facing, such as: 1.

Very disappointed with teaching skills and processes, online due to the pandemic made it worst. Professor would explain a already solved math problem with notes from previous classes that were imposible to follow. It was also hard to understand the teachers accent. No interaction with the class just 4 hours of talking. Waste of money

FIU was overall a pleasant experience. I graduated through the Honors College, which was the best experience I could have had in college. The interdisciplinary courses I took as well as the study abroad experience I was able to participate in helped mold my mind and changed how I saw the world. I preferred the Biscayne Bay campus to the South Campus on 107th Ave, as the more northern campus was closer to my home, smaller, and seemed to me more personal and friendly than the main campus.

I attended Florida International University in Miami, Florida. It was a memorable experience for me starting out as an 18 year old going into the adult world of college. I remember they had orientation for the students one day and the next day there was orientation that included the parents. I was blessed that my mother, who is now deceased, was able to attend that orientation because of her flexible schedule. Throughout my years at my alma mater, I established relationships plus support from my... Read More

I have no complaints with professors so far but I am still fairly new. However, the experience I have had with other staff has been very poor.The police station has very hostile officers who answer the phone, the coordinators for other programs do not want to help you or are extremely aggressive or demeaning when you want to ask a question regarding the program they are offering. When you call financial aid or other lines they never give you accurate information. They need to retrain their staff... Read More

The Florida International University School of Accounting offered a challenging environment that promotes learning and professional development. As an entering student, you are required to take an accounting entrance exam. The School of Accounting offers a free 3-day review session that I found very helpful when studying for the exam. Faculty was always available to help with my questions and they are a real interest in my learning. I would highly recommend FIU to anyone considering a career in accounting.... Read More

I attended Florida International University for the past four years and I can honestly say that they were the best four years of my life. The student life is very entertaining, you always have something to do when you're on campus. Whether it be the very strong Greek Life, clubs, or attending the popular sporting events, there is always something to do as a student no matter what your interests are. The professors at FIU are phenomenal, they challenged me academically and it shaped me to be a better... Read More

Florida International University (FIU) is a university that supports its students throughout their educational journey. While no school is perfect, the faculty at FIU encouraged personal and intellectual growth both in class and outside of the classroom. Professors at the university are dedicated to their profession and help students who are struggling as well as students who want to go the distance. While career services and financial aide continue to work out some kinks, the professors serve as... Read More

The university offers a great opportunity to met students with many different backgrounds and points of view. The student body is composed of many international and immigrant students that enrich your understanding of different perspectives around the world and your knowledge of other cultures. The staff and professors are very approachable and helpful, and the university recently implemented a Washington DC office and program that helps student find great internships in the Washington DC area.

Degree: Communications (Strategic & Organizational)

It was an online program. The online program offered additional support such as a Panther Success coach to keep students on track. Each week we had papers, online class discussions and reviewed relevant cases that pertained to our track (e.g. organizational communication, leadership). However, I participated in a summer study abroad program focusing on Asian cultural communication patterns such as the power of language. I spent about two months in Southeast Asia visiting Thailand, China, Cambodia,... Read More

Florida International University is a research-focused school with strong academics. Professors are generally incredibly accessible and helpful, and there are numerous tutoring-type services provided to students as part of their tuition that will help them succeed academically. There's a strong school spirit, though it could be stronger, but sporting events usually have a respectable attendance. Students have access to an ample number of student organizations ranging from interests like filmmaking... Read More

Do not go to FIU. They will do anything they can to be difficult and not give you your degree, even after completing all of the requirements. I strongly recommend any other university. University of Miami has a much stronger reputation - I highly recommend UM.
