Why did you choose Suffolk University to pursue your MBA degree?

I chose to pursue my MBA program through Suffolk University because of the prestige of the university balanced with the flexibility of the online program. I feel blessed to have the opportunity to work in such a progressive city as Boston and Suffolk University capitalizes on the richness of the city through its hands-on collaborative course structure. Additionally, the Director of my department is a graduate of the Suffolk MBA program. The Director speaks so highly of his Suffolk University education and he is a great example of how an MBA can have a significant impact on your career path.

What about the program is significant to you and why? (i.e. coursework, faculty, student support, real-world application, etc.)

I really appreciate the variety of subjects covered by the program. I know that having my MBA will open so many doors for me but at the same time I'm not exactly certain what the future holds. The structure of the MBA courses is broad and comprehensive. The coursework covers an array of topics which help guide students towards their strengths and interests. The faculty members are all accomplished and actively involved in their fields. It is a pleasure learning from such a diverse, talented and intelligent group of professionals.

When you applied for this program, what was your enrollment experience like?

I found the enrollment process straightforward. I was able to complete the application in a timely fashion and the Suffolk enrollment staff helped ensure I completed every step of the application process. The enrollment process took just a few weeks and I found out quite quickly that I had been accepted!

Would you recommend Suffolk University to someone who is considering an MBA? Why?

I would strongly recommend Suffolk University to someone considering an MBA because the program offers a world-class education with unparalleled flexibility. The online program affords me the opportunity to complete my coursework around my schedule. I am still able to work a full-time job, take care of my family, and enhance my education all at once. It is truly an incredible experience.

What is the support like from the faculty and your student support advisor?

Suffolk provides students with a plethora of resources to succeed. The faculty are very friendly, informative and willing to help. Both the faculty and student advisor respond to emails immediately. The Suffolk community, in general, is very welcoming. We all celebrate each other’s successes.
