Hear From Our Students

Student
"Bushnell University's MBA program had a huge impact on me. It taught me everything I needed to know about business, from leadership to marketing, and helped me develop critical thinking skills that I use every day. The program also gave me opportunities to grow professionally and personally through networking and mentorship. But most importantly, it instilled in me a sense of social responsibility and inspired me to make a positive impact on society.” 
-Miles Adkisson '18
Student
"The program at Bushnell helped me to think critically, communicate concisely and develop my leadership capacity. I was challenged by the rigor of the core classes and gained valuable knowledge in accounting, statistics, and operations. These courses gave me the confidence and foundational skills to understand business concepts and make informed, strategic decisions. I appreciated how I could apply what I was learning in the classroom to my daily work and how I could apply what I was learning in my courses to the work I was doing every day at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Emerald Valley.” 
-Shelly Williams '23
Student
"The MBA program at Bushnell University was instrumental in improving my business acumen, expanding my professional network, preparing me for career advancement, and increased earning potential. As a result of the program, I gained valuable knowledge, skills, and connections that have enabled me to succeed in my professional endeavors. The MBA program equipped me with a comprehensive skill set and knowledge base essential for success in various business roles, including leadership positions. Through the program, I developed and enhanced my strategic thinking and analytical skills, which are highly valued in today's business landscape." 
-Johnathan Boggs '18, MBA '23
Student
"The MBA program helped me learn about the internal aspects of upper management within an organization. The types of decisions made, how things are communicated, and how data is used for making business decisions. I was trying to make a career transition from sales and service management to human resources. I decided to pursue my MBA to help with this transition.
I selected Bushnell because it was local and 100% online. I had a family and a 50 hour a week job, and the Bushnell program allowed the flexibility to pursue my educational goals and arrange my studies around my work and home life. The Bushnell program offered structure in the course and the framework of the program but a tremendous amount of flexibility in what I chose to study." 
-Ken Dasch '18
