Tosin Idowu-Kunlere: The words of one of my professors just keep coming back to me, talking about bridging the gap between the real world experiences that people have and the knowledge we acquire in class. So when you attend classes you then see how relatable the skills, the experiences, the expertise you’re acquiring is to the everyday business management problems that people face. I’m more than inspired to walk this journey.

Aniket Turaskar: I made a significant connection to the Lerner Executive Mentoring Program. I had the privilege to be paired with a mentor who helped me a lot in understanding the work ethics in the United States. On top of that, she also trained me in how to approach a particular role and how to sort rules according to your profile. So that helped me a lot in moving ahead.

Lauren Sullivan: I chose Lerner College because I really liked the design of the online MBA program, and I thought the college had clearly put a lot of thought into trying to simulate an in-person experience in terms of resources and support, professors and courses while allowing for an asynchronous online experience that would be just as rigorous.

Hemanth Kumar Kode: I think Lerner helped me in building my network: The students, professors, industry experts. And I get the chance to speak with alumni who viewed my resumes and helped me in getting my internships and full-time jobs.
