University of Wyoming Online MBA students have utilized their degree to advance in their current careers or to enter a new industry:
“The UWMBA program really goes above and beyond the call of duty. They make sure students are getting the benefit of the investment that they’ve made and the trust they’ve put into the program to contribute to their future career success.”
- Korby Bracken, EMBA graduate
"In Business Research Methods, Dr. Peterson not only taught us the basic theories behind market research, but he also armed us with practical tools to succeed in modern business. I immediately applied new statistical analysis skills in JMP software to better understand oil production variability from tight sandstones in Wyoming. For me, the MBA program is more than a long-term investment in my business future. After just one semester, I already use my cross-functional learning at UW to add value in my current role as a petroleum engineer."
- EMBA graduate
"I would highly recommend UW’s MBA program to anyone considering or researching online MBA schools. Top notch professors that are available and responsive. The experience shaped my professional story for the future, and now someone asks about my credentials, the MBA is now part of my story. I'm proud to have attended UW both for their undergrad and graduate programs."
