Orangeburg, N.Y. – Alumni of the Master of Business Administration program at the Rockland Graduate Campus of Long Island University unanimously reported in a recent survey that the degree helped them advance in their careers.

All respondents answered “yes” to the question, “Do you feel that your M.B.A. degree helped you in your career advancement?” All respondents also agreed that their professors were high-quality professionals, and all said they would recommend the Rockland Graduate Campus M.B.A. to a friend or co-worker. Ninety-five percent answered “yes” when asked whether they received a raise, promotion or new job as a result of having earned the M.B.A.

“This feedback confirms that our program offers immediate real-world value to our students,” said Dr. Nancy Low Hogan, associate provost of the Rockland Graduate Campus. “We pride ourselves on offering expert faculty, convenient class schedules and comprehensive student support, and it is gratifying to see that our efforts have been successful.”
