I worked at Emerson College full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

A student will discover interest and skills in an area they had no idea they liked or existed.
Boston is truly you campus while at Emerson. It's the most amazing experience.
Students learn from both professors and each other.
As an alumni people often describe you being so good because "she went to emerson"

Cons

So much is learned outside the classroom that grades are sometimes weaker and that doesn't translate well for grad school.

Advice to Management

keep cross pollinating departments. Let marketing kids market TV shows and films, and have theatre kids audition for films. Avoid a niche.
