Why did you choose CCU’s MBA program?
I chose CCU because I was familiar with the program.  I also chose the program from referral's from my professors.  

Did you have an internship during your MBA? 
No, I completed a Graduate Assistantship. 

Did an MBA from CCU help you get your job?
No.

Now that you are in the workforce, what do you feel is the most beneficial thing that the CCU MBA program taught/offered you?  
One of the most beneficial classes offered by CCU's MBA program is the Human Behavior course.  I learned so much information on how to handle the workforce and the employees' behaviors.  The overall program taught me to work hard and push to succeed.  It was the accomplishment I felt completing the program that taught me to work hard and accomplishments will follow. 

Why should potential students consider the CCU MBA?  
The program has a lot of potential.  The small class sizes make the program extremely beneficial to students.  The MBA program encourages discussions and the wide variety of students with multiple career backgrounds offers exponential learning opportunities. 

What did you like most about CCU’s MBA program?
 The one on one learning opportunities and the classroom discussions.  I learned so much during group work and discussions that I loved learning in an atmosphere that was open to discussions.  I also enjoyed being in classes with students who strived to meet the same career goals as I did. 

What class or professor influenced you the most?  
Human Behavior taught by Dr. Small has been the most influential class that I have thus far used in my career.  Having a knowledge about how and what to use to motivate employees, as well as, understanding the type of employee has helped me succeed in my position. 

Would you recommend the CCU MBA program?
Yes I would recommend the program.
