I decided to continue my education immediately after graduating with my bachelor’s degree in Business. I was unsure if I would be at a disadvantage because of my lack of professional experience, but the Saint Francis University MBA faculty supplemented the curriculum with their professional experience, making this a truly valuable learning experience. While at Saint Francis University, I worked as a Graduate Assistant and was able to directly apply my course studies to my position at the University. Not only does Saint Francis foster a learning environment in the classroom, but they give students the opportunity to study abroad through the springtime in London course offered as a graduate elective each spring semester. Because of the experienced faculty and diverse learning opportunities, I would recommend Saint Francis University Graduate Business Programs to anyone looking to further their education, whether immediately following their undergraduate studies or looking to return to school after gaining professional experience.
