“My Fordham MBA experience was the perfect development tool in my journey from the battlefield to the boardroom. Fordham’s prime location in the center of Manhattan, combined with its world-class faculty and staff, creates an ideal environment for transitioning veterans taking the next step in their careers. I was able to learn and network with civilian classmates while staying connected to my veteran family through the robust Fordham Veterans Association. Additionally, Fordham provided me with the network and opportunity to complete not one but two MBA internships at Fortune 500 companies, increasing my exposure to the corporate environment. Ultimately, my Fordham MBA gave me the tools to leverage my military experience with a first-rate business education, enabling me to go into the job market as a confident and competitive candidate.”
