The Student Experience

"Students should consider the CCU MBA because the Wall College is AACSB-accredited, and the professors provide an exceptional learning experience which can be applied to the real world."

-Stacie Bowie '08
Vice President/CFO, Coastal Carolina University

"I liked the classroom sizes and the flexibility of the program. As a nontraditional student, I worked on my MBA part time and took a couple of semesters off as my workload increased. The Wall College worked with me and made sure I was in a position to complete my degree."

-Brandon Cogdell '11
U.S. Government

“My non-profit organization, OBTS, is a Society of PhDs in the field of organizational behavior and across other various management disciplines. My MBA from Coastal gave me the educational background and level of educational achievement needed to oversee operations and execute initiatives from within this 40 year-old society."

-Brandon Taylor Charpied '10
Organizational Behavior Teaching Society (OBTS)

“The one-on-one learning opportunities and the classroom discussions were the key to my success in the program. I learned so much during group work and discussions, and 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.”

-Brittany Hite '12

It would be a struggle to earn an MBA at other schools for the same cost, but you benefit just as much.”

-Danielle DeSonia '10
Cherry Bekaert LLP

“CCU's MBA program is a great program.  If students are looking for a program that will help them better themselves and prepare them for life in the business world then CCU is the program for them.”
