Darryl Martin, class of 2023Darryl Martin, class of 2023: "The accelerated Organizational Management program fits well with a busy lifestyle. The program’s structure allows balance between the course work and one’s professional and personal obligations. The condensed timeline for each course leads the student to focus on the objectives of that course individually. The cohort system builds in accountability and learning opportunities that are shared across the group. The dedication of the faculty, coupled with the affordability of the program, have proven to be the winning combination that I was looking for. I highly recommend this program to working adults looking to earn a business degree.”
