Student Ratings

Student at This School - Grad Year 2014

Overall Rating

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.


Student at This School - Grad Year 2012

Overall Rating

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.
