What Our Students Think

Erica chose Wilkes because of the personal attention and small class sizes. “I learn better in a hands-on environment and the class sizes of some of the other schools was not something I could relate to." At Wilkes, “my professors remembered me.”

Having graduated with her MBA from the Arizona location in January 2015, Erica feels the MBA program at Wilkes gave her a great sense of personal accomplishment and confidence.

Wilkes University’s small size attracted Jason.

“I didn’t want anything big where I wouldn’t get face time with professors.” Personal and Professional Development classes, a keystone of business education at Wilkes, nudged Jason out of his comfort zone by pushing him to make presentations and interact with adults in a professional manner.

“The professional people like (internship coordinator) Sharon Castano really, really take it personally to better their students, get them that internship, and get the help they need. You feel they want you to be successful.”
