Pushing Limits

“Pursuing my MBA at the Bryan School paved the way to landing a job at a Fortune 200 company. This program (and the phenomenal staff) pushed me out of my comfort zone and encouraged me to try new things—like speaking in front of 300+ people or studying in Europe. It allowed me the opportunity to gain hands-on experience and professional development both in and outside of the classroom. I will forever be grateful for all that the Bryan School poured into me! “
