Student Ratings

Alumnus - Grad Year 2004

Overall Rating

Notre Dame provides a great education and an even better Alumni Network. I attended ND for both my undergraduate degree in accounting and my MBA in management, and highly recommend the school for both its academics and the overall student body.


Former Student - Last Attended 2007

Overall Rating

Great academics. A bit of a "bubble" - not tapped into a large market (i.e. Chicago). Recruiting for MBA students could improve. Small size of the program limits the hit rate for companies going on campus. Football games are a life experience. There are also great international programs.
