"My MBA from Purdue Fort Wayne has afforded me opportunities that I had never had. It opened me up to a new career field which I never knew existed, but it turned out I was extremely good at! Shortly after graduating I was offered a position in Supply Chain Management at one of the world's leading airlines. I have progressed in my job faster than anyone else who started with me, and I am positive that my MBA from Purdue Fort Wayne gave me that upper hand. I have so many opportunities with my MBA that I had never considered before. Instead of worrying about finding a career, I found myself struggling to decide which career to choose."
