I’m not interested in spending 16 months reading a textbook. I want to use what I’m learning. Getting practical experience is really important for what I want to do with my career. That’s why I chose Florida Southern College.
FSC’s MBA sharpened my managerial skills. Getting a group of smart, strong-minded people to work as a team, knowing when to let others lead, knowing how to get everybody’s ideas heard — that has helped me so much in my career.
I work in the nonprofit sector where the leaders are full of heart. I wanted an MBA to balance that heart with business know-how. FSC was fabulous about helping me find ways to do that.
The opportunity to get a graduate assistantship was one of the things that appealed to me about Florida Southern’s MBA program.
I’ve been to Asia on business many times, but traveling to Vietnam and Hong Kong as part of the MBA’s international field experience — having those interactions with the other students and the professor — was a fantastic opportunity.
When searching for an MBA program, FSC became the prime candidate for me because of its hands-on approach, variety of course options, schedule flexibility and was a great option for an international student like myself. The program not only gave me a wealth of knowledge, but I also gained valuable real-life experience through activities, such as competing in two case competitions, presenting a downtown revitalization plan to the city of Lakeland, and participating in an entrepreneurial directed study. I highly recommend this program!
FSC has a strong partnership with local businesses, creating coursework with an emphasis on live cases. I appreciate that FSC focuses its academic curriculum around real-world business issues. This approach adds purpose beyond the classroom.
