Discover why some of our featured students chose the University at Albany Evening MBA program.


Bill Gohl, MBA '14

IT Manager, Anderson Instrument Company 

"I consistently found a staff of professionals sincerely committed to their work, research, and teaching. They transferred knowledge on techniques and concepts to students and invited us into their lives with their personal stories and experiences. The UA faculty made this program intellectually challenging and thought provoking. Most importantly, my master's research thesis of a direct model business turned into a reality!"



Rexella William, MBA '14

Civil Engineer, New York State Department of Transportation

"The Evening MBA program was a solid and well-rounded program providing working professionals an opportunity to widen their professional horizons. Everything from class hours to faculty and staff support was flexible to student schedules, making it easier to balance work and life. Going to school with other working adults provided a platform for learning from each other’s work experiences during class discussions and networking with other students."



Falita Friday, MBA '15

Acting Global Ombuds Leader/Paralegal, GE Power and Water - Compliance

"Attending the University at Albany for my MBA was definitely the right choice for me! It afforded me the flexibility to attend classes with enough versatility to have top-level, full-time employment, earn my MBA and Information Security Certificate in two years, and maintain the ability to take part in my family as an active wife and mother. I don’t know if I could have accomplished this in any other program, at any other university!"




Nathan Phillips, MBA '17

Business Banking Officer, SEFCU

"The University at Albany Evening MBA Program really helped me understand a business' financials, and allowed me to make more informed decisions on behalf of my organization. The program has helped me enhance my skills set and create a network of professionals, both of which are vital to my success."
