Why Keiser?

Connie Sue CentrellaThe Keiser University MBA program is designed to challenge students to achieve excellence in the business world and guide them to become effective and eficient leaders in both the domestic and international marketplace. But what a surprise! What has transpired within the last year is so much more than what I had expected.

I began my MBA journey over 35 years ago but due to business and personal responsibilities I did not finish my degree.  I was not sure if I had the energy either mentally or physically to actively engage in an online program with students half my age. My goal was not to “climb any ladders” or “break any glass ceilings”; my goal was to gain knowledge in the current business environment to assist in my educational training programs.

I am so excited to have an opportunity to share that the program has renewed my mind; changed the way I think; and has given me a new sense of purpose. I owe my enthusiasm to the strong support and encouragement of the faculty. Through this online educational vehicle, the professors transformed my attitude and behavior; gave me the self confidence I was lacking; and restored my energy. The sharing of ideas, experiences and challenges with the other students enlightened each of us to the possibilities available in our futures.

I confess that I have a new sense of empowerment. After years of going through the motions, both professionally and internally; my mind is now awakened. It is like a sponge; soaking up new knowledge; and broadening the promises in my future. My daughter said it best, “you are younger now than when you were fifty!”

It’s never too late.

The Design program at Keiser University was filled with real world learning and hands on instruction… Based on the portfolio I created while a student at Keiser University, I landed a job in Graphic Design for a major online retailer immediately after graduation.

It has been great attending and graduating from Keiser University.  Because of the small class sizes, I was able to build good relationships with classmates and professors.  The PA professors care very much about the progress and success of the students and have been great advisors every step of the way through the program.

Annelise Merriner, PA-C

Attending Keiser University and getting my degree was the best decision I have ever made.  The small class sizes and personalized attention helped me get my degree quickly.  The hands-on experience and the education landed me a job at a neighboring law firm.

I chose Keiser because it had everything—small classes, caring professors, hands-on learning, and counselors that are really there for you.  I feel like I’m part of a family here, not just a number.

After being denied for several promotions at my current employer, I decided that I needed to further my education.  Since graduating from Keiser with my bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, I have been promoted and I am able to obtain positions that weren’t available to me before.

Keiser helped change my life by getting my education at the right school! I have been going to another school before, dropped out because I felt that I was not getting enough information that I need. When I found out about Keiser, I was pleased because the instructors were great.

My decision to attend Keiser University has been one of the best decisions I’ve made. I chose to enroll in the Information Technology program… The one-class-a-month pace helped incredibly with my self-discipline.

The BA for Business Administration at Keiser has to be one of the best in the nation. Keiser takes the basics that are taught at the Associates level and uses them to strengthen your skills and knowledge.

I found that Keiser University’s Nuclear Medicine program of advanced studies and small class size was a perfect fit. I never came across a faculty member who wasn’t truly interested.
