Graduate Testimonials

"WSSU provided me the affordability and flexibility to pursue a quality education; I learned a great deal from the highly qualified and experienced teachers in the program that enabled me to apply those teachings to the real world. In a typical workplace, you might have five minutes or less to examine an issue and make a decision. The WSSU MBA program offers one the chance to step back from their day-to-day activities, exchange ideas with fellow students from many different careers, industries, walks of life, and have uninterrupted time to think a problem through; an opportunity one may hardly ever get at home or at work."

The WSSU MBA has been invaluable for my career. I received my MBA in December 2007 and have been promoted 5 times since receiving my degree. Having the business knowledge being a senior manager in an IT organization has helped me to be more well-rounded in my professional career."

I chose WSSU because when I began my MBA, I was over fifty. I looked at the cost of other area programs and I could not see a certain pay-back on my investment with their tuition rates. I also had found that programs that had both a day and evening program did not tailor their coursework to the evening student who held a full time job while continuing their education, which made success near impossible. To expect the same time commitment from a full-time student with no other obligations and a person with family responsibilities, and a job to consider is a factor that many applicants don't even consider. The coursework at WSSU allowed me to balance family, job and education with minimal adjustments of time and effort.
