            Suffolk University was a great University that I chose to attend back in 2009. There was not a professor that was ever bad. All professors were great. The thing I loved the most about them was that they taught us about the "real world" because they were heavily experienced in it. The student body was great and their energy to represent Suffolk was even more amazing. Being someone who was President of clubs and Captain of a newly founded dance team, the PAO office was amazing. Suffolk is a great school

            1998-2000, Executive MBA

            I had completed my Executive MBA Degree program, with speciaizations in Finance, Marketing, and Strategy at Frank Sawyer Business School of Suffolk University, Boston, over a decade ago. I truly enjoyed studying at Suffolk University, not only because of the excellent quality of education, but also for its great location, situated right in the heart of Boston, at the world famous Beacon Hill. i surely learnt many management skills, as well as the outstanding knowledge of effective leadership and a valuable insight into organizational dynamics....these are the skills that essentially enabled me to achieve the best for my organization, both as a technology leader and a people manager alike. The academic perspective that came with my Ph.D. was blended beautifully with enhanced business acumen that was instilled during my MBA. I am pleased to recommend Suffolk University, for her excellent Executive MBA program at Sawyer Business School, wholeheartedly.
