Success Stories

There's a big difference between getting an online MBA and an executive MBA program. You're surrounded by people who have already been executives. There are people who have been either where you are heading or who have perspective on it."

There’s different emphases. We've got doctors and lawyers in the program, like people from all walks of life. I think no matter the field that you're in, you can apply at least something from this program. I think that you can develop your career in any field if you do this."

The reputation of the university was a key factor in my decision to attend the U of A; the university has very strong credentials. I made the decision that it was something that I was going to do, and the timing was right. The hybrid program makes it all possible. It is an excellent program."
