Success Stories 

As an adult, the decision to return to college to complete my degree was a terrifying. Benedictine’s programs provided comfort of being surrounded by other adult learners on similar paths. From day one, at my first class, the University taught me how to manage my time and balance commitments as a mother of two, full time employee, business owner, and full time student. I was able to immediately apply the time management skills I learned which enabled my academic success.

Benedictine University’s MBA program provided me with the opportunity and challenge to utilize academic theory in real life, professional applications.  Working through individual and group led initiatives, I learned from my instructors and classmates alike.  These experiences helped sharpen my corporate acumen, build upon my existing career and develop a renewed sense of focus and discipline.
