Hear From Our Students
SOM MBA Students
The MBA program offers our students opportunity, flexibility, and support to help
them successfully complete their degree. Our students come from all walks of life
and leave the program as leaders of many different professions.
Sierra Sadler worked as a financial intern at BP while she was an MBA student at SOM.
When asked about how studying at UAF gave her an advantage, she said:
"I would never have known about the internship opportunity unless I was in the UAF
MBA program. There are a lot of opportunities for networking at UAF. I learned about
the internships through career fairs on campus, as well as talking with School of
Management alumni. Then, at events like the Business Leader of the Year, I was able to network directly with people from BP. I think BP is one of the companies
in Alaska that really cares about hiring students from UAF. BP notices the students
coming out of the UAF MBA program are staying in Alaska and they’re excelling. You
do have an advantage if you come from UAF."
Mike Seper sent the following feedback after taking MBA F665: Strategic Collaboration.
"Beginning my Master of Business Administration during the summer semester with University
of Alaska Fairbanks online seemed like a daunting endeavor. Beginning graduate level
classes after nearly a decade removed from academia and managing my zipline business
seemed to leave little time for anything resembling summer. Fortunately, my instructor
was flexible and understanding of the requirements of both class and business. She
helped guide our class to become a cohesive unit and learn from each other’s experiences.
The Strategic Collaboration class was a great introduction to the MBA program with
real world applications that I was able to use to improve my business operations.
It is exciting to advance my education and discover the opportunities that await upon
graduation from UAF. The University of Alaska Fairbanks online MBA program offers
everything I had been searching for and more, in the form of quality instruction and
flexible online offerings to fit even the busiest schedule."
Vincent Kwarteng sent the following feedback after taking MBA F665: Strategic Collaboration.
"I am very thankful to the University of Alaska Fairbanks for making obtaining an
MBA degree a dream come true without having to break service. While stationed in Fort
Wainwright, Alaska, I decided to enroll in UAF's evening MBA program. The program
was very interesting and informative yet challenging. When the time came for me to
deploy, my professors were kind enough to help me complete my last two classes from
Afghanistan. My instructors were understanding of my situation and provided flexibility
around deadlines to accommodate the operational tempo of deployment."
