"The SIU oMBA program offers a wonderful opportunity for working professionals seeking to further their academic and professional interests. The curriculum is presented incredibly well by faculty that are engaged, responsive, and offer ample flexibility for students. Much of what was delivered in the virtual classroom complemented my professional experiences and I was able to apply what I learned in real-time in a practical environment. After successfully completing the oMBA program, I was immediately presented with opportunities for advancement in my career. I would strongly recommend the SIU oMBA for those considering obtaining a MBA degree."

"The SIU faculty did a great job of laying out the curriculum and expectations to keep students on track with the MBA program requirements. Students can expect to gain a solid, fundamental understanding of business management from their coursework. Additionally, I found the program to be particularly effective at providing a large breadth of business knowledge. Participation in the program improved my leadership, writing, analytical, and time management skills. Furthermore, it allowed me to pinpoint those areas of business that I found most interesting to facilitate future study and development in these areas."

"My MBA degree helped to propel my career, as last year, I started a leadership role at William Hill. A position I could not have received without this degree. As Head of Midwest at William Hill, I oversee electronic and retail sports betting operations in Iowa, Illinois, Indiana and Michigan. Our industry is primed for growth and my organization was just acquired by Caesar's Entertainment. We like to talk all the time about this being the "1st inning" of our growth trajectory and my degree allowed me to get in on the ground floor of my preferred industry. I will always be grateful."

"The oMBA program at SIU is a perfect match for individuals looking to balance their personal life and professional aspirations. One of the aspects of the program that I appreciated most was the clear expectations set forth by the faculty, including case study and a high level of engagement between students and faculty, and ample time to meet said expectations according to the time allowed by my schedule in a given week. Additionally, the faculty is exceptional in their knowledge of the material and the proper application of the material in “real world” scenarios. In fact, there were multiple occasions in which the course material applied to situations I was actively experiencing in my professional life. My degree and the knowledge acquired from the program has set me up for immediate and long-term success. All said, I couldn’t recommend the SIU oMBA program more and I’m proud to have an SIU degree hanging on my wall."
