Academics Rating

Workload all depends on how you manage your time, nothing is too bad. Class size is relatively small for about half the classes so you get to build a personal relationship with the professors. As of right now the school is known for its business program but with the proton therapy center just being built not to long ago, and the construction on our new bio-medical research facility concluding Spring 2014, we are seeing a shift in academic focus here at HU.

I am a student in the 5 year MBA program which is a great program. It is definitely focused on career placement with top companies and family oriented. The professors definitely challenge you and make sure you learn what you need in order to be prepared for the real world.
