            Think Global with GMU

            George Mason University offered a great opportunity to develop business skills and perspectives needed for the international environment and helped expand cross cultural awareness through its Executive Global MBA program and concurrent international travel. The experience inspired me to start my own company in 2012 while I was still in the program.

            GMU Excellent Interdisciplinary Studies

            George Mason University Interdisciplinary Studies Program is an excellent way to explore areas of interest through a unique view. Interdisciplinary Studies (IDS) enabled me to address my interest in International Terrorism through Government, Criminology, and Conflict Analysis & Resolution. The program requires a dedication to grammar, logic and rhetoric in synthesizing disciplines. GMU's Office of Military Services and Career Services Office are amazing resources for aspiring, current, and former military personnel. GMU offered challenging and engaging courses that I can attest to improving my understanding of International Relations, Homeland Security, the Intelligence Community, National Security, and many others. I am proud to be a Patriot!
