What Recent Grads Say See All 12 Comments >

Part-time MBA students work on real-world projects as part of most classes. This was so important to me because I had an immediate application for the concepts I learned. In one Global Operations class, my team helped a Fortune 500 company redesign its Asia-Pacific supply chain. It was an amazing experience that I will never forget. Our Graduate Business Career Center (GBCC) is also unique. I have been on recruiting trips for my company this year and I can see that the resources provided by the GBCC have prepared me completely for all of the components in successful career planning.
