Pursuing a concentration has allowed me to broaden my industry knowledge and explore concepts in greater depth. It also enabled me to better differentiate myself as a job candidate in a competitive marketplace.
Taking the Supply Chain Management course with Professor Ramey was key to my finding success in the CSCMP SCPro Bridge Exam program. Being exposed to the key tenants of supply chain management in class as well as using the text from CSCMP as our core learning materials gave me a head start, making my preparation for the certification exam a great experience.

FSC has a strong partnership with local businesses, creating coursework with an emphasis on live cases. I appreciate that FSC focuses its academic curriculum around real-world business issues. This approach adds purpose beyond the classroom.
The Mortgage Firm
So much of the work focuses on real-life experiences. You work on projects with area businesses. That helps you know what to expect in your everyday work life.
J. Elizabeth Sherling
City of Lakeland
With a few years between my MBA and today, I feel I notice the benefits of the program more than ever. I realize now how I analyze processes and really question the "why" behind projects.
I’ve been to Asia on business many times, but traveling to Vietnam and Hong Kong as part of the MBA’s international field experience — having those interactions with the other students and the professor — was a fantastic opportunity.
Dr. Vanessa Saunders
Florida Southern College
I’m not interested in spending 16 months reading a textbook. I want to use what I’m learning. Getting practical experience is really important for what I want to do with my career. That’s why I chose Florida Southern College.

When searching for an MBA program, FSC became the prime candidate for me because of its hands-on approach, variety of course options, schedule flexibility and was a great option for an international student like myself. The program not only gave me a wealth of knowledge, but I also gained valuable real-life experience through activities, such as competing in two case competitions, presenting a downtown revitalization plan to the city of Lakeland, and participating in an entrepreneurial directed study. I highly recommend this program!
