How are your experiences in the MBA program at the Breech School of Business enhancing your professional career?

I am interested in different aspects of management.  The MBA program provides opportunities to apply my skills in time management.  There are always a variety of group activities that assist in the learning process.  The Breech faculty are committed to working one-on-one with the MBA students.  MBA courses include a lot of examples of how companies operate in different types of industries and the professors have proven to be an excellent source of information. 

What specific courses have been your favorite, and why?

I really enjoyed the MBA 674 Understanding and Serving Customers and Markets. We participated in a group project where we developed a marketing plan for a local business.  This kind consulting is something I am interested in doing upon completion of my degree.

Do you have any favorite memories of about the Breech MBA program?

The MBA Live-In Weekend was a pretty good start to the program – we got to know several professors and future classmates.  It was a comfortable setting where we were encouraged to share and exchange ideas.

What advice would you offer to a new student beginning the MBA program at the Breech School of Business?

Definitely get to know as many professors as you can. Everyone is there to help you in academics, career questions and everyday life issues in general.
