Alumni Success


"I completed my online MBA program with Murray State University in spring of 2021. I took the course as an option to have the autonomy to work full time while obtaining my Masters. As the manager at an electrical contracting company my position requires a lot of travel on unpredictable trips. The program, though challenging as expected, allowed me to complete my school work per my work schedule and locations. I completed assignments in many hotels but was always able to keep up with the coursework. My goal was to obtain my MBA at this stage of my career to equal the opportunities I have earned through my tenure. As a 52 year old student, husband, and Dad with 20 years of management experience to date, the coursework material that I have learned through-out this program is invaluable and will help me to be a better manager. Not only was I able to reach my goal, but now I have a new one as the education learned has allowed me to raise my own bar of expectations."

"When deciding on where to study for my MBA, the Murray State MBA program stood out among the numerous programs I researched. I liked that the core curriculum for the program included classes from multiple business concentrations. This allowed me to freshen up and expand upon the knowledge I took away from undergrad, and developed me into a stronger business professional. In addition to the core curriculum for the MBA program, there were additional classes that I could choose from that focused on the specific business concentration that interested me. For me, the flexibility of the program, the curriculum and the staff, all made the Murray State MBA program the right choice for me!"

"Obtaining my MBA provided a sense of achievement, both personally and professionally, that has been tremendously fulfilling. It also allowed me to develop friendships through the cohort approach that I enjoy today."
