    Business Management

    I can use the skills and knowledge I have learned at Ursuline to advance in my career.

    Shondayna Goss

    Why did you choose Ursuline?

    I chose Ursuline because they had a program for individuals who worked during the day and were only able to attend classes in the evening. Also, I have heard nothing but great things about Ursuline academics. It is also close to home for me, my commute to campus is about 10 minutes compared to other colleges with a similar programs.

    How did you manage all of your responsibilities (work, family, school) to be successful in your program?

    I managed to make a schedule for myself to get things done. I carry a planner with me almost every day to ensure that my obligations are met at work, at school, and even with my family. This has helped me manage my personal life and helped me be successful in my program.

    What are your favorite aspects of the Business program?

    My favorite aspect of the Business program is that I can use the skills and knowledge I have learned at Ursuline to advance in my career, or I can use those skills and knowledge to start my own business. The Business program also helps us network with other classmates and build relationships. You never know when we will run into each other again in life.

    How has your education from Ursuline helped your career?

    My education at Ursuline helped my career in a great way. When I started at Ursuline in 2018, I was working as an entry level teller at a very small bank that was based in Youngstown. Now, I am an experienced Mortgage Loan Officer at a really big savings and loan company based in the Cleveland area. I believe without taking courses at Ursuline, I still would be working for a smaller business trying to figure out what's next for me.
