"I would like to re-emphasize how happy I am that I invested my time and money in the Mini-MBA.

It took a lot of effort and sacrifice, but now it’s paying off big time. I was just offered a position at one Utah’s fastest growing startups, one of the top-rated Best Places to Work by Glassdoor.

I expect the program staff and faculty would be reassured to know that I didn’t go back to delivering sandwiches after the program."

"The information provided in the UCCS Mini-MBA courses was comprehensive, with something for everyone.

The principles I learned can be applied to any idea, project or program that I participate in moving forward.

The knowledge, experience and engagement of the professors combined with the enthusiasm and commitment of the students made for a fantastic experience. I have made connections that will last long past this program.”

"If you are a working professional considering obtaining your MBA, but unsure if it is right for you, I would highly recommend the Mini-MBA Program from UCCS.

This program gave me an in depth look at the broad subjects covered in a standard MBA program, but in a shorter timeframe and allowed me to decide that pursuing a full MBA is the right path for me. The program and its instructors provided me the tools and abilities to further my career path in business in immeasurable ways.

The program also provided a direct and substantial impact to my current employer by applying the principles we learned through the course into the $75K in 75 Days Capstone Project, making this a valuable investment for my employer.”
