The MSBA program is set up to teach skills in the fall and apply those skills in the spring. The program equipped me a wide variety of skills to apply to the work place.

The professors are extraordinary. Their experience in their respective fields is unparalleled and helped me to better understand how the business world works.

Q: Can you recall a favorite memory from the program?

I have so many good memories from the program, but my favorite was our business trip to New York City where we visited all types of companies and learned about different business careers.
