“The Citadel MBA program challenged me to think critically, speak the language of various business departments, and become a strong leader. As a result of the program, I am able to take a holistic approach to business decisions, rather than just viewing through the lens of a single department. The program has already opened doors for career advancements and leadership positions in the company.

Thanks to The Citadel, I am advancing my career and community. I was elected President of the Board of Directors for a nonprofit. By applying the skills and education I received from The Citadel’s MBA program, I am better able to give back to my community through the nonprofit and my position on the Board.”
