Flexible MBA

  • Maia  Sciupac Arteaga
    “I knew I was headed for an MBA, but I didn’t want to go to just any business school. I wanted to go to a school that teaches the value of people over profits. I want to be part of a generation of future business leaders that have that vision in mind.” Maia Sciupac Arteaga | Student | Flexible MBA
  • George Bittar
    “It really jumped me six years ahead, and I know it never would’ve happened without me pursuing the business degree. I am convinced I wouldn’t have even gotten where I am today without it.” George Bittar | Student | Flexible MBA
