Two-Year Course Rotation

Although I recently graduated with a bachelor's degree, I was unable to find employment. I approached Joseph E. McAloon and, after discussing the benefits of the MBA program with him, decided to enroll. The program has changed my life. It gave me the chance to meet new people and network, allowed me to learn in a professional environment, and will provide me with new career opportunities.
