PMBA 2013

Deciding factor:
I’d heard from several alumni that the program at TCU was top-notch, and in particular how it helped them grow as professionals. They gave the faculty kudos for sharing their real world experiences, and encouraging students to do the same. I also chose TCU for the national recognition the program has received, and the strong network built here in DFW. 

I think the TCU PMBA program will open many doors for my career. I already hold an MS degree in accounting, but the MBA rounds out my knowledge base, better equipping me to go into other areas within my company. I’m in a better position to truly impact the business. 

Significant experience:
A main strength of the program is the high caliber of students that the PMBA program attracts. During class, there is a great deal of exchange between students that allows us to share our work experiences. These conversations have helped me grow tremendously in the short time I’ve been at TCU.
