It was a campus visit that convinced Kellstadt student William Moss,
president of the DePaul MBA Association, to attend DePaul. Moss, who is
studying finance and real estate investment in the evening MBA program, was
particularly attracted to the program’s flexibility, Loop location and robust student
and alumni professional network. “I came and visited the campus before being
enrolled and just loved the downtown location for a business school,” he says. “It
just seemed to provide so much potential to career-minded individuals, while
also providing a convenient location.
“Our network of alumni is an incredible
asset,” he adds. “I have met numerous alumni who are more than willing to help
you accomplish your goals, while creating great camaraderie with current
students in class and outside of class.”
