"Fitchburg State allowed me to become a good business owner because those skills I learned: managing employees, learning and understanding the science behind the reason how they act at work, [and] learning how to basically take care of your employees. Fitchburg State allowed me to do that and I'm grateful for that."

"I thought Fitchburg State was flexible and able to accommodate the things that I needed. Because it is an online program, the tuition was cheaper. Also, I was able to do it in one year, which was the reason I chose to go there."

"Understanding how to manage the laboratory and manage a department and all of those who work as part of a healthcare team is extremely important … I learned a lot in the MBA program about rules and regulations of employment and how to motivate employees to perform."

"Fitchburg State kept popping up at the top of the list of all of the reviews I saw about cost of tuition and time to completion. That was good to see. It was the right fit for me. I loved the online experience."

"I worked out the schedule where I focus quite a bit on the weekends because my work week can be super crazy, so I do my reading then. I do my responses or papers on the weekends as much as possible. The ability to have that option has been useful. I wouldn't be able to do typical in-person classes with the work schedule."

"I chose online because I work the night shift, so it would have been very hard to go to classes. It was ideal. There's definitely more downtime at night, and I was able to get some work done and not have to miss sleep to be present in class."

"Fitchburg State made me feel very comfortable. There were situations when I did not understand something, for example, financial aid and loans. The staff would explain it step-by-step to me and send me an email to make sure I understood. It was a really nice experience. I highly recommend the program."
