MBA Class of 2013SUNY Stony Brook, BA History & Education
“The greatest insight I took from the Net Impact Conference was the notion that one does not need to seek a position in “sustainability” in order to make a positive, sustainable impact in the business world. Whether we get a position in accounting, operations, or IT, we can make sustainable decisions for our company in every aspect and at every level.”
MBA Class of 2012NAU, BS Finance
"It was always a goal of mine to get an MBA from Northern Arizona University after finishing my undergraduate degree. NAU offered the WRGP tuition assistance program.

"This rigorous program has been noticed by many of the public accounting firms in the state and helped me land a job with Ernst and Young. The small class size allows the group to progress further because the professors know our abilities. This program has helped prepare for my career and I highly recommend it for anyone going into public accounting."
MBA Class of 2009
BS from University of Lagos, Nigeria
"At the end of the day, the key differentiating factor for the NAU-MBA is the faculty.In my opinion, the NAU-MBA faculty are a committed group of individuals that have as their primary goal your success. That's something that I sincerely believe, and I was fortunate to experience first hand.I did do extensive research [before choosing NAU-MBA], including outside of the U.S. The pivotal point was when I visited the campus and there was a very sincere, very ubiquitous positive energy in everyone I interacted with from the students to the faculty members to the administrative staff. It just felt like a good fit for me."
Gibbons St. Paul

What I like best: "Having professors truly dedicated to your success and always available to talk and bounce ideas off. As an athlete, I appreciate that professors understood the balance between playing football and completing my MBA. Never got any special privileges but the understanding was there and that was very important to me."
