Justin White, the first MBA graduate of Patten University’s online program. This milestone opened the door to next phase of Patten’s rich history by expanding course offerings to include online degree programs.
What fueled Justin in earning his degree?
As an Orange County Deputy Sheriff, Justin was no stranger to making major life decisions. With over 3,000 people in his department, he knew having his MBA in Strategic Management would differentiate him and help position him for promotional opportunities and long-term success for his family.
What advice would Justin offer other students?
Set short term goals and stick to them. As long as you can set short-term goals for each course and achieve those goals before you know it the course is done.
Would Justin recommend Patten to a friend?
Yes, most importantly for the flexibility and affordability. The biggest thing was that you had the flexibility to work online at your own pace. As far as the cost. I did my research and there is nothing else that compares to the affordability of Patten. You are not going to find a better regionally accredited college that you can graduate with little or no debt. Overall Patten is a great choice!
Justin is a prime example of the new face of today’s college student. By taking advantage of his employer’s tuition assistance / reimbursement program, he has able to make his education dream a reality for a cost of only $1000 out-of-pocket and without the need for student loans or debt.
