Academics Rating

For me the MBA program is easy so far. I would like to be challenged more because this is information I need to know in the workplace in order to succeed. Possibly dishing out more homework would help

Student at This School - Grad Year 2012

Academics Rating

The academics at UMKC are as good as you will find at any public university, if not superior, and its smaller size allows for easier access to professors if you need help in a class or as faculty mentors. I would recommend finding at least 1-2 faculty members (preferably 3, if you're planning on going to graduate school) that you connect with and have something to offer you in the way of advice or support. They can help you with any problems you may be having at school and provide letters of recommendation or a job reference for you later on.
