As a non-traditional student working full-time, parenting and fulfilling my obligation with the National Guard, I have a hectic schedule. With the flexibility of the Applied Business Program, I’m able to pursue my educational goals without interruption. The instructors are understanding, professional and responsive. I’m so happy with the choice I’ve made!
