"If you just work hard, you can achieve anything. I just don't want anybody to hold back because they don't think they're capable of making it through. I worked as a graduate assistant, I worked at the bank, and I even did a side job. I did three jobs while I was going to school getting my MBA."
—Sarah Roberts, MBA in Management online
"I was working full-time on my dad's ranch; I was an undergrad student and taking online MBA classes; I was working as a graduate assistant for 20 hours a week. I learned pretty quickly how to manage time." Now, at age 23, Emily is an MBA graduate and a small business owner.
—Emily Robinson, MBA in Entrepreneurship online
"I always wanted to earn an MBA -- even after I finished my undergrad. You've got to have a passion when you're going to school to push yourself through it. You've got to find something that is going to push you until the end that you actually want."
—Chauncey Ward, MBA in Entrepreneurship online
"The classes that required the most writing … I dreaded them at the time, but they improved my writing skills. I'm just so thankful now that Dr. C.W. Von Bergen and Dr. Martin Bressler just really pushed and encouraged me, as well. That was pivotal for me, as far as my writing."
—Julia Boyd, MBA in Management online
"Just be diligent and disciplined. That's what you've got to do. It's online, so if you don't do it, it won't get done. You've got to have a significant other or loved one in your life who will get behind you and push you. And you've got to have the right instructors. At Southeastern, I never had a bad instructor. Not one."
—Ronnie Coppedge, MBA in Management online
