What our graduates say

Taking Business Across Borders

The professors have been absolutely wonderful. I didn’t expect to make connections like that. In Finland, students typically don’t have the opportunity to get to know their professors on this level. At the Bryan School, I had relationships with nearly all of my professors as an undergraduate.

Experiencing the UNCG MBA

Our class was filled with intelligent and dynamic students who each came with a different background and set of experiences to share. I have learned a great deal from my classmates; they have helped to crystallize the in-class and extracurricular learning that will forever represent my experience in the Bryan MBA program.

A Tremendous Value

The Bryan MBA is a tremendous value for the education received. Students learn practical and technical skills while in the program and the price of tuition is excellent for the skills learned. My investment in getting my Bryan MBA is well worth the costs.
