          • Testimony
            1985-1988, MBA

            I have great memories of my time at MSU. I started as a Freshman in 1979 and graduated with a BS in Business Administration. I returned to complete an MBA. I have life long friendships from my time there and I have very fond memories of so many fantastic professors. Although I have spent my professional career in the Arabian Gulf (UAE and Qatar) , I enjoyed MSU so much that I sent my daughter there and she is soon to graduate! The right university, the right price, and the right size, it sure worked for me.
