Graduated Student 12/14/2019

I absolutely loved the school, campus, professors, department and staff. Extremely helpful MBA program coordinators. Professors go out of way to help and provide assistance. Program itself requires a lot of work (expected and not an easy program and does require effort, time and interest). You have to write a lot (so be prepared). IT support and facilities are great.
