40% of students gave University of Missouri, Kansas City 4 stars overall.
I think UMKC is a great school. I am a current MBA student and so far the courses I have taken are very informative. I would like the career placement area to improve. They have one but it is limited.
I came from a large public university so adjusting to a mid-sized commuter campus like UMKC was a little difficult for me. Overall, the best part is the academics and the worst is its social atmosphere.
