Meet several MBA Class of 2014 candidates:

  • Rachel Anderson

    Rachel Anderson

    NAU, BS Psychology

    "I got my undergraduate in psychology and I have chosen to pursue a career that can be achieved through an education in psychology or business. I chose the MBA program at NAU because of its reputation and credentials, the small class size, and the emphasis on teamwork. It will provide me with the opportunity to strengthen my leadership skills, enhance my presentation abilities, and the knowledge of the business world that I will need to succeed."

  • Eric Bayles

    George Mason University, BS Economics

    "One of the primary things that attracted me to the NAU MBA program is the fact that it offers a specialized accounting MBA. It's the best of both worlds; not only do you get an MBA in 10 months, you have enough credits to sit for the CPA Exam when you're through. The class sizes are small, the professors are accessible and helpful, you get invaluable feedback on things such as resumes and mock interviews, and the professors genuinely try to know you as a person and steer you to a company where you will fit in with the culture. The NAU MBA program won't just help you get a job; it will help you get the job that's right for you."  

  • Reha Karadag

    Reha Karadag

    Cag University, Turkey

    BS, International Finance

    "Opportunity cost of a two-year MBA program is very high for working professionals. NAU' s accelerated MBA program offers a great opportunity with small class size and faculty focusing on the development of MBA students."

  • Justin Kolodziej

    United States Coast Guard

    NAU, BS Accounting

    “If you’re leaving the military to return to college, then choosing the right university has a lot to do with successfully transitioning to civilian life and achieving your academic goals.  The W.A. Franke College of Business gave me the personal attention and sense of belonging that I needed. Aside from having great instructors and staff the MBA program is accelerated, which is great for those of us eager to return to the workforce.  And their team based program gives veterans the opportunity to apply their skills at working as part of a group in a new setting.” 

  • Beth Wixom

    NAU, BS Accounting

    "For accountants especially, it not only gets your credit hours you need for a CPA certification, it also gives you a competitive advantage over other accounting students. Additionally, if you aspire to reach management level, this program will give you tools to effectively achieve that. It may seem like a big investment, but the program offers a lot of financial aid and GA opportunities. I highly recommend this path, it is quick, effective, and 100% worth it."
