Andrea Ballou
PGA Golf Management, Class of 2018
"I believe UCCS is a very innovative school and a school that truly cares about the career futures of the students. The PGA Golf Management Program alone has opened many opportunities for me that I never thought I would experience as a student. To come out of college with a business degree as well as the right to apply for PGA Membership is a huge step up in the industry."
Jayden Bruun
PGA Golf Management, Class of 2018
"I wanted to pick a school away from home so I could get a real college experience. UCCS is the reason I have what I need to reach my goals. I couldn’t have done this at a better accredited business school with a PGA Golf Management Program. My degree felt like it was tailored for me and I can use it even if my plans change in the future."
