Caitlin Benson

"I chose Boise State because it just felt right. The classes were flexible. It worked with my work schedule. It worked with my personal life."

Peter Epstein

"When I originally enrolled in the program, I was living in Phoenix. Being in school and moving from Phoenix, there wasn’t even an issue since it’s so flexible. When I got to Denver, I just picked up right where I left off."

Morgan Prince

"I went back for a master's degree for advancement. That's my goal. I wanted to do something a little more well-rounded rather than a computer science master's degree. That way, I could have multiple opportunities rather than locking into one area."

Suzanne Johnson

"Starting a nonprofit from the bottom up was really eye-opening to how much I didn't know and needed to learn. The MBA program has been really helpful with that. A lot of people might think that you wouldn't get an MBA if nonprofit is part of your world, but it was actually tremendously helpful."

Kjell Ooms

"If I keep saying, ‘I'm going to go get it someday, it will never happen.’ I pulled the trigger and thought it would be a career move for me. Managing construction projects is like managing small businesses. I'd like to keep climbing the ladder and eventually get to the project sponsor and then the executive level. I believe the Boise State MBA program will help me do that."
