Accelerated Full-time MBA (Management) UG 2019, GR2020
Business Development Coordinator, Guaranteed Rate

Professor Ostrowski has been a wonderful resource as his lessons span beyond classroom learning.

He provides coaching and opportunities to network- because of him, my classmates and I attended a professional networking event in Worcester. There, I was able to practice skills that were learned in class to then expand my network.
Sabriya Chaudhry

Accelerated MBA in Healthcare Management GR 2022
WooSox Foundation Coordinator, Worcester Red Sox

I love being able to enhance my business knowledge and apply what I’m learning each day.

I handle the day-to-day operations of the WooSox Foundation. The MBA program is perfect for anyone looking to continue their education. I was nervous about starting a new program; however, the faculty and staff have helped make my transition back to school seamless.

Custom Communications Specialist at Virgin Pulse

In my role as a Communications Specialist, I put my undergrad and graduate experiences to good use!

My advice is to get to know your professors, they will not only teach you, but may guide you towards an experience you may never have tried before. You will always be encouraged to expand your network, so do it! (And Hound Nation is much larger than you would imagine)!

The Assumption Accelerated MBA program gave me the tools and skills to be successful.

The mentoring and development that you constantly receive prepares you so well for the real-world experience.
Kevin Peterssen

Vice President of Commercial Banking, United Bank

My business expertise and confidence have grown tremendously.

As a trained accountant, the program helped me develop expertise in other key areas of business which immeasurably boosted my confidence to voice opinions, make presentations, and take a leadership role at work.

I gained a lot of value from the events and resources Assumption has to offer.

I gained a lot of value from the events and resources Assumption has to offer. Without the professional development and networking tools I gained at Assumption, it would've taken me double the amount of time to gain those skills and experiences.
