"The number of jobs I have been offered since earning my MSN-MBA degree at Anderson University has been amazing. If only prospective students could foresee the opportunities this double master’s degree would give them. My education has proven to be far more valuable than I ever imagined."
Dorian Lawler, senior consultant for EMPATH Consulting





"As an international student from the Philippines, I was amazed by how welcoming and diverse the MSN-MBA program was. Learning about the different backgrounds of my classmates, participating in challenging class activities, and working with knowledgeable  professors helped me build a strong foundation for my education. Because of my experience at AU, I dreamed bigger, worked harder, and made it farther than I ever thought possible."
