    what your or would like to major in? I believe POP have branches of DR major univesities. You most likely would be traveling to Santiago, the second major city. Itīs only 1 1/2 hour ride.

    Default Universities

    For your information:

    www.pucmmsti.edu.do (Main Campus)
    www.pucmm.edu.do (Santo Domingo Campus)

    www.intec.edu.do

    I would not recommend any other place.

    However, if you just want to study Spanish there are tons of places for that.

    Just type in *Spanish lessons* in the search function here and you will find lots of info.

    POP/PUCMM only offers a few areas of study.
    As for the other places, sorry, no comment

    Hi ! PUCMM has program agreement with well known universities in the US and is well known here for its business administration program, Quite a few foreing Ss attend PUCMM. How do I compare it to US universities That īs a hard one for me. I went to college in the US, but this is a different ball game over here. The DR school system is very authoritarian. I know one thing, if you go to college and completed the requirements of a 4 years program, and for one reason or another you canīt attend the graduation ceremony, you will not graduate until you cross that stage_ somebody correct me if I am wrong. DR teachers have too much power. They can make you or break you. Female Ss sometimes get by grade if they...you knows....

    Default cOMPARISONS ARE DIFFICULT

    tHE END PRODUCT IS VERY GOOD, SO WE DO SOMETHING RIGHT.

    OUR MDS SEEM TO HAVE A VERY HIGH PASS RATE ON THE BOARDS

    Sorry, did not see I had the Caps lock on...DUH...


    Anyway, the student that graduates generally has lots of success at the graduate level, and that speaks highly of their preparation. There is not the cut throat competition for grades so prevalent in many Us in the USA.

    Library resources are not a s good as most good schools in the States, it is a question of money. Endowments here are very slow growing. However, at one time a Harvard Prof told us that our labs were equal to or better in some cases than theirs. Who knows??

    The deal is if you want to study, you can. If you graduate, you will be equipped for Grad School in your field.

    HB - It's great to know that a student need not leave the country for a good education. Is it your experience that most of the successful, well educated Dominicans have gone to Dominican universities? - D

    I don`t really know about graduate programs in the Dominican Rep. However, I can tell you that UNIBE offers an MBA with another Florida based college.

    Try to look for other programs in PUCMM and/or Intec.
