Having a graduate degree from Marist has left me feeling excited about the endless opportunities ahead!
Nicole Byrne ’08, MBA ’17
Sr. Product Specialist
I was out of my comfort zone with the coursework, which I saw as a good thing. I was always learning new things, so learning how I learn really helped me with other areas of my career. I also now have a broader understanding of management and business, rather than just education or IT where my background has been for the last 13 years.

Imaging On Call
After completing my MBA at Marist, my agency has involved me in different initiatives and strategic planning discussions that would not normally be part of my job description. I was invited to an executive-level retreat on internal marketing after I engaged in a discussion with my Chief Operating Officer about some of the things I learned in class. At the retreat, I felt empowered to engage in the discussions and believe I was able to contribute a unique perspective that eventually led to the implementation of several of the ideas brought forth.

Astor Services for Family and Children Outpatient Centers
Marist offered me an MBA program that worked with my busy life. I very much enjoy the online learning experience. I worked this program around my activities. It allowed me to keep doing the important things in my life…work, volunteer, and spending time with my friends and family - all while earning my degree. The faculty of Marist generally do a great job of structuring the class to give us time to get the work done but still expecting good, high-quality work.
