The St. Ambrose University MBA emphasizes not just the degree, but also the principles and practices that will sustain your career as the marketplace changes. Dick Eisenlauer, now CEO of Harrington Signal, an electronics firm in the Quad Cities, returned to Ambrose for his MBA to get an advantage in the corporate world. He attributes much of his success to classes based on "real life business experiences"-essential for a small-business owner in a competitive market.
Michael Cooke found that even just taking classes for his MBA made him all the more marketable. "I was working as an engineer, then promoted into another area. The human resources management course was a good learning experience for the next level of management. We examined real-life, real-time problems that arose in our workplaces, like conflict management, and used them as case studies. I then took what I learned in class and applied it the next day at the office. I'm not just learning for the sake of learning; I'm learning to push my career forward."
