            Great School to Enjoy!!

            I enjoyed the friends I made and the teachers knew all of us as we weren't a number but a person to them. Couldn't ask for a better school to earn my degree and help me in my career. Playing basketball was a lot of fun and everyone supported you on campus as I made friends and coaches for life who I turn to help me out when I need it. Thank you, Coach Bortke!!! one of the most respected people who I learned more than the game of hoops I learned life lessons that I was able to give to my players. Joan Weltz I like to give a shout out as I did my work study under her and she has always been a great person to visit and catch up on things happening there. Sister Thomas/Father Cook were great to visit and never forgot a face or name even after you graduated. Awesome place that made who I am today. Well worth-Thank You, Take Care/God Bless All-John

            The REAL Deal

            This program landed me in a peer group working in the real world and applying the concepts of the courses in their careers every day. The projects and courses applied to anyone who has been in the workforce and the sharing of experiences and knowledge through these courses, group projects, and instructions were invaluable to me. All the components I needed to advance my career were provided. The instructors had full time careers and could conceptually apply the practices and give real world examples. Our thesis was a REAL company that illustrated the REAL pressure and fun of uncovering what the client needs, what drives their passion and delivering a solution that met the requirements. This entire MBA program is built around real life scenarios and obstacles and there is nothing better than this when working to obtain an advanced degree. Loved every grueling minute of it.
