A Veteran Student Reflects On His Professional MBA Journey

20 years ago, I wouldn’t have guessed I’d be where I’m at today. Representing UNCW’s Swain Center for Executive Education in our regional marketplace hardly aligns with the bulk of my professional experience. Had you asked me then, I would’ve guessed I’d still be in the Marine Corps in 2020. But life happens, and in 2008 I permanently separated from the Corps. Over the subsequent 8 years, I worked as a Sheriff’s Deputy and spent several years in healthcare sales. Having siblings with master’s degrees and quite successful careers, I had an ever-present interest in pursuing a graduate degree that would equip and position me as a more desirable workforce candidate. What I was NOT interested in was preparing for and sitting through a GMAT exam. As I investigated the MBA programs at my alma mater, I was pleasantly surprised to learn the Cameron School of Business (CSB) waived the GMAT requirement. A short time later, I applied to CSB’s Professional MBA program. I was later accepted and was set to begin coursework in Fall of 2016.

MBA Student Highlight - Brittany Collins

Posted by UNCW on Feb 26, 2021 9:37:24 AM

Today’s student highlight goes to Brittany Collins. Brittany is in the graduating class of 2021 for our Masters of Business Administration program. Our MBA program is part-time and allows individuals to keep working, while also continuing their education. Prior to enrolling in the MBA program, Brittany was employed full-time but felt that she didn’t have a meaningful connection to her work. With aspirations of joining an executive leadership team one day, she felt that the best way to remain competitive in the evolving job market was to go back to school for a graduate degree in business.

Guest Blogger: This week's Featured Seahawk, Tyler Wittkofsky, CSB Alumnus '15 and current Professional MBA student.

Life's greatest passion and most rewarding task is one's ability to give to their community and make an impact. My community is one that I grew up in, one that my family has been a part of for generations, and one that has given so much to me. Other people may not have that connection to the community they currently serve, but the community is one that gives to you. So why should you give back to your community? Here are my top three reasons:
