Student Stories

A black and white photo of a man with short cut hair smiling with wide eyes into the camera.

“Growing up, my entire family was in the ‘business’ sector. Not knowing which specific direction I wanted to go in, I decided a bachelor’s degree would leave multiple doors open for deciding which path I wanted to go down. I would definitely choose the business major again if given the option. It really is a great degree.”
