See what our graduates say about how RMU put them on the fast track to career success.
“The internship requirement is huge. It gives you such great exposure and experience. It really helps get your foot in the door.”
“I do think that Robert Morris was a good place for me. It was a good fit.”
“My dissertation literally paid off. I hadn’t even finished writing the thing when I was called and they asked if I wanted the job.”
“If I hadn’t had that one-on-one with my professors, I probably would have quit. And if I’d chosen a bigger school, I probably wouldn’t have had that attention.”
