''Someone is always available to help. Professors, academic counselors and students are always willing to assist and help you navigate through any issues or concerns. Everybody has been greatly professional and rich in knowledge about any subject matter. I knew of a few colleagues who had completed the MBA program and had nothing but positive reviews. I also liked that Benedictine was a real brick-and-mortar university with over 100 years of existence.''

- Johanna Rycroft, Pharmaceutical Sales
