Student Experience


In any Stetson University graduate program, you can expect small class sizes and personal attention from professors and classmates. All classes are taught by faculty, not graduate assistants. There will be lectures, but the professors want to help you develop a deeper understanding of the topics and issues being addressed, so interactive class discussions, group work, presentations and case studies will be part of every class session.

Rigor and Relevance

More will be expected of you in a graduate program. This is because no matter what field you're going to enter when you graduate, and even if you stay in the same field, you have to be ready for a constantly changing environment complete with new challenges every day. For over fifteen years, Stetson University has been ranked among the south's top regional universities in U.S. News & World Report's America's Best Colleges, which speaks to the unwavering quality of a Stetson University degree.

The School of Business Administration and the M. E. Rinker, Sr. Institute of Tax and Accountancy are both accredited by the AACSB, which is the premier business accrediting agency worldwide.

Networking and Relationships

Remember the relationships you built during your undergraduate years? The same goes for Stetson University's graduate programs. While the small classes, focus on collaborative group work and project offer ample opportunity during your class sessions to build personal and professional relationships with your professors and classmates, you'll also have opportunities to network outside the classroom.

Travel Opportunities

In today's interconnected, increasingly globally focused world, it's important not only to understand the complex international issues facing your field, but also the different perspectives held by people in other countries. The MBA and Executive MBA programs both offer international travel opportunities; in fact, the Executive MBA program requires international travel!
