I chose CityU for the school's program flexibility built for working adults. As a professional in business in pursuit of an MBA, I wanted to make sure the degree I pursued would pay off and be able to fit my pace with no hitches. I'm thankful I found that opportunity at CityU. I can work downtown, then book a study room on my class days before evening class begins. The advisors are understanding, patient, and eager to help work around student schedules when life events create obstacles around quarter deadlines and more. So glad for CityU!

This is my fourth semester here at CityU, and I can honestly say I feel like the help I have received from my professor and fellow students is beyond the best feeling. I believe they want to see all of their students succeed and follow their dreams. I will also be looking into other programs the school has and see what catches my eyes. One program that stands out is the MBA program. I feel like that program along with the current program I’m in, which is the masters of science in health administration. I feel like education is very important, and I will continue to strive to achieve my educational goals.
The support and encouragement from staff and faculty is truly amazing. They see you, treat you and acknowledge you as a student and human and not just a number. I feel connected, even hundreds of miles apart!
