Master of Management in Foundations Of Business - Batch of 2024
PlacementsInfrastructureFacultyCrowd & Campus LifeValue for Money
Good experience overall, more beneficial for students with a non-business background
Tips: Great environment for international folks. Everyone here embrace diversity and inclusion. It was not an easy transition to move from a happening city to a calmer place like Durham but the events at Duke made up for the lack of places to explore around. The course is more useful if you come from a non-business background. Placements have not been great due to the job market.
Likes (Part time work): Lots of opportunities to do on-campus work. The community is welcoming to hire international students and no problems have been faced regarding it so far. Manageable workload depending on your role. TA roles are also available for students on the colleges' own job portals.
Dislikes (Safety): The city in which the college is situated has a high crime rate but students and gate communities are well protected with security & constant patrolling. The campus is extremely safe at any time. No good or bad experiences so far on or off campus, but always stay alert.

Master of Engineering Management - Batch of 2023
PlacementsInfrastructureFacultyCrowd & Campus LifeValue for Money
The Duke name helps in getting opportunities.
Tips: Not a major cultural shift, since this course attracts a lot of Indians. You should be actively participating in activities around you or you will miss out. I did not receive any scholarships. The university was very satisfactory, it offers guidance, security, and a platform to make the best of your career. As for the programme, it's as good as you make of it. It is designed to give you an introduction to most things, not a deep drive, it opens new horizons of thinking and changes your perspectives on decision-making and your approach, but there is a lot of self-effort required.
Likes (Student Life): Attending lectures, participating in the various activities going in the campus, from information sessions to painting sessions. I attended about 3 events each week. All kinds of clubs are present, from data, and sustainable energy, to mediation and music clubs.
Dislikes (Internships): The Career Center does provide guidance but it is limited and the students are expected to do most of the work. The availability of internships changes every year, during my first year, we had to scour a lot, during my second year I saw the incoming batch getting lots of calls by October itself. Overall, the location is good for the search, the Duke name helps, but it's mostly dependent on the market situation during that time.

Master of Engineering Management - Batch of 2023

Great opportunity, but be clear and aware.
Tips: Make sure you have a clear goal in mind what you want to achieve after graduation. Keep aside a certain amount for living expenses, as finding an on-campus job is tricky. Most master's programs do not have diversity, so do not be shocked if you do not see it here.
Likes (Indian Food): One can get a good Indian meal in the $10-$20 range. There are good restaurants, and Indian groceries are pretty accessible. Check out Lime & Lemon, Indian Monsoon, and Anjappar in Carry as a few good options. Eating out in the US regularly can burn a hole in your pockets, so make sure you know or learn how to cook.
Dislikes (Public transportation): The US is heavy on the individualistic culture; hence, there is a lack of decent public transportation. The bus arrives in an hour, so you must plan your visits accordingly. Make sure you stay within the vicinity of the campus to make things easy for you. Public transportation is free for the residents of Durham.

Duke- A fun and memorable experience
Tips: Students coming here should research more about the course and be open to change. I would advise on networking with peers and alumni for advice and support. Explore the campus for fun activities and make use of the resources available. Overall, I would ask students to focus on their job search and proactively look for opportunities.

The alumni network is resourceful.
Tips: Great quality of academics and a very competitive environment. Friendly professors and a wide variety of streams to choose from. Flexibility in the course structure and great help from peers. Extensive alumni network. Can be better at helping in the job search.
Likes (Quality of faculty): Extraordinary faculty members with lots of real-world and teaching experience. Great curriculum design with practical training. Flexible and adaptive according to students' requirements. Feedback-based curriculum updates and lots of industry networking will be helpful for job search.
Dislikes (Safety): Multiple incidents near my residential area which is located 10 minutes away from the campus. Very unsafe at night especially with no public transport available after 9. No nearby restaurants and sparsely populated which increases the number of people getting out during the night for dinner and getting robbed.

If we compare the acceptance rates of Duke and Harvard University. The Harvard University acceptance rate is 3% and the acceptance rate of Duke is 6%.

Duke University acceptance rate is 6% which is too low. The low acceptance rate symbolizes students have to perform at their best in academics, and extracurricular and must have experience in the chosen field to increase their chances of getting selected.

A GPA of at least 4.13 is needed for international students to get into Duke University. If a student’s GPA is lower than this, they can compensate with a higher SAT or ACT score. Also, they can create an impression in the rest of the application by adding prior experience in the desired field.
