            1977-1983, Bachelor of Business Administration (B.B.A.), Marketing

            A Great University

            I have fond memories of my Marketing professors. I look back sometimes and realize how much about business, people and life that I learned about while I was here. Would recommend it to anyone.

          • Testimony

            Wright State University prepares professionals to provide quality care!

            The growth of this university is astonishing and the education that I received prepared me to be the leader that I am today and the leader I plan to become in the future!

            2001-2006, BS, Computer Engineering

            Launchpad

            Wright State's ties with WPAFB helped me land an internship on base through SOCHE, which led to a great defense contracting job at Riverside Research. It really launched my career on a nice trajectory. I don't where the most credit is due (WSU, SOCHE, or RR), but they all played critical roles in my development, and however you slice it, this all started with Wright State University.
