"By the time I had three classes towards my MBA completed, it would have been foolish to not complete the degree. I would not likely have considered pursuing my MBA if JFKU had not offered the linking program."
–Mary Barnum, 2012 MBA Graduate
"The transition and the process were virtually painless. The linking program helped save money and time. If I had to apply at a university to get into a master's program, I probably wouldn't have done it right away and may have eventually given up."
–Sheena Driver, 2012 MBA Graduate
"The MBA is a large financial commitment, with no guarantee of immediate return on investment. Therefore, it is imperative to limit personal financial costs of achieving a MBA in as many ways possible. The linking program does this by executing on the age-old reality 'time is money.'"
–Riley Sullivan, 2011 MBA Graduate
