We request all applicants to add Isenberg's MBA program to your MBA timeline so that the applicant stats displayed in the first post reflect true picture of admissions. While adding the program, MAKE SURE you are setting it for graduation year i.e. 'Class of 2019'.

Hi,
I'm currently attending Isenberg MBA (full-time) program. Along with Isenberg I was admitted to a top 20 BS (without scholarship). And I'm very happy that I picked Isenberg. I hope that my brief review below will help potential applicants who consider this school. Sometimes a review from a current student provides a better insight, while there are not so much info about this school available on this website.
Disclaimer: I did my best to provide a helpful insight. However, the below review is my personal opinion and experience which may be biased.
1) Super-supportive atmosphere:
The school wants you to succeed. You feel it from the very first day you join the program. MBA office encourages you to get professional certifications (CFA, PMP, etc) and even provide you scholarship for them. Some of my classmates and I got scholarship for CFA exam from the school. In addition to your MBA degree, if you are interested in analytics, you can pursue a Certificate in Data Science administered by UMASS College of Information and Computer Sciences. No doubt, this certificate represents additional workload, but it may also provide you solid advantage in the job market.
Plus you are encouraged to have personal meetings with the school's career center experts. Since the MBA class is not so big, they always have time for you and they do know your story well enough to provide advice and support tailored specifically to you. My resume and cover letter were reviewed and edited multiple times before they were finally "approved" by career center. This level of personal attention is important for me.
2) Relatively small size of the class (around 37-45):
Many applicants think that this is a disadvantage. But in my opinion small size is very cool. Here is why. You are not a faceless statistic number in a large pool of MBA students. You have a better chance to participate in all class discussions and stand out. In a relatively small group you form stronger bonds with your classmates.
3) Full fellowship:
Can you imagine, you get an MBA degree free of cost and in addition you also get a stipend! As an MBA student you work for real interesting projects. For example, I work in the Center of Entrepreneurship as an MBA coach and consult STEM PhD students on starting new technology ventures. I like this job because it links me to other departments/ schools/ scientific centers at UMASS Amherst. I've had an opportunity to meet a lot of smart people with awesome ideas.
4) High caliber professors:
Our professors are outstanding and, as the result, demanding. For me this is a very critical point. I wanted to attend a school with rigorous academic program. My first semester was tough (case studies, quizzes, group projects, presentations, tests, etc), but it was what I actually wanted.

Hope this post is helpful.
