"My experience at Georgian Court University was an amazing experience from day one! As a full-time evening student, I learned so much from the professors and fellow peers. Georgian Court University's M.B.A. program was my first choice because they offered small class sizes, professors with professional business experience, and a team approach to learning.
I managed to graduate with a 3.5 GPA and was inducted into Delta Mu Delta, the National Honor Society of Business. As a proud alumna, I am gratified by the opportunity to have acquired my M.B.A. from such a prestigious university and encourage anyone who has a passion for excellence to consider Georgian Court University."
