The most unique aspect of the program is the size. We had 35 incoming students the year I joined the program. It was relatively selective compared to other area schools, so almost every student was employed and had been working for 5-10 years. Some were in analytical positions (such as myself) while some were already managers, directors, or VPs. It was a nice mix of experience.
I found a couple courses to be poorly organized and felt that they were a part of the program because the school thought that they must have them (business ethics). If they are going to require a class, they should have a learning objective in mind when offering it.
The class sizes and quality of most of my classmates really impressed me. There were people from many different backgrounds, and I feel like I learned almost as much from them as I did from my professors.
Lower the astronomical costs. I'm not paying for 99 percent of it, but the amount of money that people plow into this program is obscene.
We draw from the best companies in the industry. We have a very diverse student body. We have best-in-class professors.
Job placement was not as good as I thought it would've been. Plenty of career opportunities come through the MBA office, but it's usually just emails regarding jobs with minimal follow-up. UR does not command the prestige of an Ivy MBA (obviously), but I did expect a little more response from the local Richmond community.
The school has made curriculum modifications to facilitate a quicker graduation, that was a major improvement.
The program has come a long way since I started in 2010. They have actively sought student feedback to make it better and have brought students to the decision table. The international residency program is somewhat lacking compared to other top full-time programs.
The instructors are fantastic. The final class allows you to work with a real company as a consultant.
I would have liked to have seen a higher caliber of student experience prior to entry into the program, however, I believe this to be true of the overall MBA population and not specifically about Richmond.
