What do alumni say about the MBA Program and their careers?

“Every day at work there’s a challenge that requires certain knowledge or skills, that, fortunately I’ve acquired through the Mason MBA. There’s no doubt that all the hard work put in all the classwork has paid off. It’s a great place to learn, not only based on curriculum, but from peers and very capable and knowledgeable professors.” -Ruxandra Arustei, MBA ’11, Director of Financial Analysis, Crescent Hotels and Resorts

“As much as I thought I knew what pursuing an MBA entailed, the Mason program pushed and challenged me at every turn to achieve beyond what I previously thought possible. The program forces you to apply a level of disciplined time management and determination that leaves with you the confidence to face any challenge in business. Jonathan R. Snowling MBA ’11, Senior Partner, SR Strategic Communications

“Mason is a strong program that holds its own among the other programs in the DC area while managing to maintain a small-town feel.  At Mason, I have been able to build strong relationships with a diverse set of classmates and professors while juggling a full-time career. Overall, I believe that the way the faculty and administration treats the students is what sets Mason apart from other business schools.” -Brock Walker ’14, Financial Specialist, US Department of Treasury
