I would never have known about the internship opportunity unless I was in the UAF MBA program. There are a lot of opportunities for networking at UAF. I learned about the internships through career fairs on campus, as well as talking with School of Management alumni. Then, at events like the Business Leader of the Year, I was able to network directly with people from BP. I think BP is one of the companies in Alaska that really care about hiring students from UAF. BP notices the students coming out of the UAF MBA program are staying in Alaska and they’re excelling. You do have an advantage if you come from UAF.
Beginning my master of business administration during the summer semester with University of Alaska Fairbanks online seemed like a daunting endeavor. Beginning graduate level classes after nearly a decade removed from academia and managing my zipline business, seemed to leave little time for anything resembling summer. Fortunately, my instructor Anita Hughes was flexible and understanding of the requirements of both class and business. Anita helped guide our class to become a cohesive unit and learn from each other’s experiences.
I am very thankful to University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) for making obtaining an MBA Degree a dream come true without having to break service. While stationed in Fort Wainwright, Alaska, I decided to enroll in UAF’s evening MBA program. The program was very interesting and informative yet challenging. When the time came for me to deploy, my professors were kind enough to help me complete my last two classes from Afghanistan. My instructors were understanding of my situation and provided flexibility around deadlines to accommodate the operational tempo of deployment.
