Reason You Chose the Jenkins MBA Program
My goal is to become a manager and eventually a department head in healthcare. The MBA program is providing me will the core knowledge and skills required to achieve this goal. I chose NC State over others for three main reasons. The first reason is for the flexible schedule. With three young kids at home and a full time job, I need that flexibility. The cost of obtaining this degree is far more reasonable at NC State and do not believe that I have sacrificed anything to obtain the degree at a lower cost. The cost structure also allows me to maximize my employer’s reimbursement schedule. The third reason I chose NC State is for the emphasis on practical knowledge and many opportunities to apply learning in a practical way throughout class.
