“I want to make the most out my MBA—this experience is exposing me to so many possibilities in the areas of business. The benefit of attending graduate school with work experience is that you appreciate the chance to learn and grow as you start the next chapter of your career.”
“I wanted to be a part of an MBA program that not only delivered a high level of business education, but also had a strong emphasis on social and environmental impact. I wanted to make sure I was being prepared for the business world of the future, where community and people interactions will be just as important to master as financial management. Of all the MBA programs I looked into, I felt that the Daniels Denver MBA program provided the most authentic and comprehensive curriculum to meet my needs.”
