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.

Masters Of Science In Finance 4+1 Program At The Cameron School Of Business

Posted by Cameron School of Business on Jan 20, 2021 11:29:34 AM

Guest Blogger: Contributed by Nicole Carabelli, Administrative Associate for Economics & Finance at the UNCW Cameron School of Business; Lee Iapalucci, Web & Social Media Director for UNCW Cameron School of Business Graduate Programs; Dr. Bill Sackley, Professor of Finance Director for UNCW Cameron School of Business. (this post originally appeared on WilmingtonBiz.com on January 14, 2021).

Starting in the spring of 2020, the Cameron School of Business expanded its graduate program listings to include 4+1 programs in economics, finance and business analytics. The benefit of these programs is that they allow students to begin their master’s degrees while simultaneously completing their bachelor’s degrees. This enables students to save time and enter the workforce with two degrees more quickly than if they complete the two degrees separately. Following this accelerated educational path raises the skill level so graduates can succeed in postgraduate positions.

As a military-affiliated student, Hannah Schield ’19 has lived in three states and attended four colleges over the past five years in her pursuit to obtain a degree. Her hard work will come to fruition when Schield receives her business administration degree with a concentration in supply chain management from the Cameron School of Business.
 
"Once the requirements of my degree are completed, what ultimately matters are not the courses listed on my transcript, but the sensibilities and habits of mind that I bring to my work, friends, family, and indeed, the rest of my life,” said Schield.
According to Schield, who is CSB’s “Outstanding Graduate” for the school of business and within the supply chain program, the knowledge she has gained during her studies brings immense value to organizations.
