Success Stories

Jake Kingsford, UCCS Mini-MBA (Class of 2017)
"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 Place 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."
Andi McDonough, UCCS Mini-MBA (Class of 2017)
"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."
