"The Telfer MBA stretched my horizons about the true fundamentals of business. The professors, students, and staff all contributed toward providing me a high-intensity, multidisciplinary learning environment that ignited my passion for small business consulting. This was the perfect foundation of knowledge and experience upon which to base my entrepreneurial drive and analytical mind. I can honestly say that a significant portion of my success to date can be traced back to my experience at Telfer.
