I took admission to Mount Saint Mary's University and was unsure about my future. After working with advisors for more than five years I met a few professors. And then I decided to pursue my studies in master in business administration. Shortly after my first week on campus, I was fortunate to land an internship with Wells Fargo.
I truly believe that the degree program was designed for me. It was a rigorous, challenging program that provided me the flexibility to earn my degree faster than other programs. The curriculum also inculcated the various ethical conflicts and choices required to be inherited in business decision making.
