            EDUCATION THAT IS RELEVANTThe Cotsakos College of Business has courses that are relevant with today's job market. I didn't realize how relevant until I started working. Suddenly my "semester-end" projects are popping up at work. What you learn will be useful in the "real world".

I look back fondly at my time on campus, and am very pleased to see the progress and improvements made. The financial planning undergraduate program that is now available is cutting-edge.
