"After finishing my MBA, I was able to utilize the skills I learned in the classroom in my current job. Courses like project management allowed me to organize and ensure my current projects have an attainable action plan and stay within the scope of work.

During my MBA, I had the opportunity to work on a corporate level project that touched on all aspects of the business. Now, after my MBA, when given a project or task by my manager, I am able to consider all the tasks that come along with this project from all the portfolio my organization offers."
