To bring leadership and develop the organizational structure within my current company in order to position it for continued growth and success.
The small class size and interactive/experiential learning style at APU is very attractive to me. The instructors are a great mix of academic and real world experience and typically utilize relevant current world situations for class projects. Working closely with fellow students in a team environment has been great. Many of the classes focus on projects that are process as well as results oriented. This develops skills in working relationships as well as technical knowledge.
Advice for Future MBA Students
