I'm constantly seeking new opportunities for personal and professional development to help me do my job better. I've often thought an MBA would be extremely useful, but never imagined I could study towards a qualification of this type while at the U.S. Naval War College. The idea seemed perfect.
Like the campus itself, the Salve MBA program is small and personable. I've been able to develop great relationships with my instructors and fellow students, and the MBA program is at a very high academic standard and quality.
