I can honestly say, that enrolling in Cal Lutheran’s Executive MBA Program was not only the best personal choice I’ve made in years, but the best investment I could have made for my professional career. Especially during these unprecedented and difficult times in most industries, improving and developing my skillset has provided me with tools that have helped me become a more valuable asset to my employer. Joining the cohort program was an enriching experience all around and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is considering Cal Lutheran for an advanced degree.
