Feb 28 2012Business - Management and Administration
I graduated from the Crosby MBA program in May 2011. Coming from a lesser-ranked undergraduate program, the program seemed wonderful; great professors, cheap tuition, good school, decently competitive students, many extracirricular activities, extremely friendly staff.
However, the two things that makes this program horrible is its career advisors and horrible job placement. The truth is that the majority of the students who graduate don't get real jobs. And those, like me, who do get jobs usually settle for low-paying jobs that a student with an associates degree could do just as competently. Want an internship? Forget about it. The placement rate for internships is so low, that if you are set on getting one, it would be better to try your luck elsewhere.
There are two career advisors, neither have much experience in the actual job market. One is an ex-stoner who talks about her 'artistic' side too much and who is more fit to work at McDonalds than a 'top' business school. The other is a psychotic b-tch who doesn't understand what emotional intelligence is. Both people are equally worthless and will contribute nothing to your career/time in graduate school.
I was also accepted to the MU law school for a JD/MBA combo. However, seeing that the placement rate for law is even worse and that its rankings slid for #107, I decided not to give Mizzou another chance.
However, the school attracts a variety of students from across mostly the midwest. They work hard to contribute and create a good social vibe in the program. The actual MBA staff really like their job and like the students.
All in all, its a good program, but trust me,the horrible job placement, and equally horrible advisors make a world of difference.
Bottom line: If you want a job, AVOID the Crosby MBA.
The School of Social Work at the University of Missouri is a scary place. It definitely has its bright points and good people. But there are also some good reasons why it is so far down in the rankings. Before entering this program, Google some MSW alumni and ask them specific questions about particular professors who teach the courses you will be required to take. Example, to get the conversation rolling: ask whether they observed incidents of classroom behavior that depart dramatically from social work ethics. (Do yourself a favor and look at the ethical guidelines in the NASW Code before calling.) Another possibility: visit the campus and see whether you can get students to talk frankly and openly about their experiences in those classes. My advice: get yourself into a program with dedicated professors who love the social work profession and are not so predominantly oriented toward their own personal issues.
I am a transfer student from Missouri State, and coming to Mizzou was scary at first. It's a lot bigger and more exciting. Finance here was a lot better than any other college Missouri could offer me. I spent only my freshman year at MSU before coming to Mizzou. I would like to say MSU is a good school and it is decent, but Mizzou in all honesty is just better. Better than Drury, Truman State, etc.

Columbia is kind of in the middle of nowhere, but it is a great college town with lots of bars and restaurants. As for the Journalism school, I can see why it is considered the best in the world.
