What Our Students Say

“I was looking for a career shift, and the University of Utah MBA program opened doors for me. Through the program, I was able to choose a career path that fit my professional goals. The most valuable asset I received through an MBA was the networking opportunities – in the classroom, through networking events, career fairs, and business visits. The caliber of individuals I have been honored to meet has set the foundation for post-graduation success.”

Karina Rivera, Full-Time MBA, Class of 2018

“This program has brought me so much joy, both in the knowledge I’ve acquired and the people I have met. I’ve learned the power of a good network and in building relationships with my cohort. It has been eye-opening and inspiring. Before I began the program, someone told me that an MBA teaches you how to think differently; I couldn’t agree more.”

Alyssa Craig, Professional MBA,
Class of 2019

“I travel every week, and I’m not set on a certain schedule, so the online platform is perfect for me. I can pick it up and take it anywhere. The outstanding career advancement program may be what advances my future most. You have a career coach who helps you sell yourself in the real world.”

Cassia Connors, MBA Online, Class of 2017

“The commitment and quality of the EMBA staff and professors is next to none. Not only were the professors amazing, but we learned so much from all students in the class representing all sorts of industries. I’ll be forever changed by the friendships and education I’ve received at the University of Utah.”
