            2007-2012, MBA, Marketing

            I thoroughly enjoyed the quality of the MBA program, including Prof.'s, other professionals (students), and enhanced (dashed with Jesuit values of life-long learning, service, ethics, & mind, body, & spirit) curriculum. Courses helped me at my day job, entrepreneurial pursuits, and even daily relations. I endorse the undergrad programs as well, as two successful daughters attended classes, and liked it a lot. I got to meet fine fine fellow student friends through them. I believe the F.U. MBA helped me win my latest career role - ring the bell!
