Personal Service is the Hallmark at GCMC
According to Burke, this all-time high outcome for the class of 2016 is the result of the MBA cohort size that allows for close collaboration between the students and the GCMC staff of career experts.
“The GCMC team works one-on-one with each student enrolled in the full-time MBA cohort throughout the entire two years of the program,” said Burke. “As a result of our personalized, individual attention for coaching and advising, we can better help students with their skills, understand their values and interests, and help them identify and prepare for internships and full- time jobs.”
Burke added, “The entire staff is extremely thrilled with this all-time high outcome for our MBA class of 2016, and we know that our students are well on their way to successful careers.”
