Congratulations MSBA Class of 2012

The MSBA class of 2012
On behalf of the Faculty, we extend a heart felt congratulations to our second class of MSBA graduates!  17 students received their diplomas on Saturday, May 12 under beautiful sunny skies at The Catholic University of America.
It has been a joy to work with these students over the past year and watch them learn and grow in their professional wisdom and confidence.  You are ready to face the world and make a difference.  I would be honored to work for any of you in the future.

The class of 2012 received 11 job offers prior to graduation and by the end of summer all will be starting their careers in various fields of business, government, education and not for profits.  These students hail from 10 different universities in the US and Germany and brought 13 different undergraduate degrees to the program.  This diversity enriched the whole class and added global perspectives to class discussion with students of German, Mexican, Nigerian and Iranian backgrounds.

Our faculty was honored to have almost all of the parents of this years graduates join us at a reception in downtown DC the night before graduation and the comments we received from the parents were universally positive.  They too have seen their offspring mature and gain confidence in their abilities and prospects.  Yes, it's still a tough job market and that makes it all the more important for students to prepare themselves with the right skills and knowledge to be competitive.

The combination of a liberal arts degree and business degree is valued in the marketplace and the success of the first MSBA graduates and this class demonstrates that value.

We wish all of our graduates the best for their success and happiness.  You can follow their progress over the coming days and weeks in the Jobs section of our blog.

Professor Stewart McHie
Program Director, MSBA
