 - faculty/staff discount

Cons

Pay more attention to staff/faculty satisfaction than to appearance to attract more students.

    Pros

    Many opportunities to work with professors and interact with staff members over the course of my job. Down time to study when work load is not significant.

    Cons

    Not that many cons, except the construction in the SMG building has made everything different and more difficult to adjust to. More pros than cons definitely.

  2. Good

    Pros

    Facility is excellent, teachers are nice and you can meet people from different countries, very interesting, you should take full advantage of the gym

    Cons

    tuition is really expensive, expecially for some programs, we have no campus````` because schools are in the street, professors are very busy, since most of them are teaching us after work```
