Alyssa Steinmann, MBA@American Student

“At first I was apprehensive that working full time and being in graduate school part time would be incredibly challenging. However, the Business@American online platform made it very possible. The platform is streamlined, easy to navigate, and allows students the flexibility of independently managing course deadlines based on one’s personal and professional responsibilities.”

Our Approach to Learning: Practice Makes Perfect

Throughout the online program, students will have the opportunity to gain real-life experience working for a DC-based company that aligns with their career goals. Working virtually as pro-bono consultants, students develop close relationships with local companies to help them grow and adapt to changing markets—all while building key skills that will give them a leg up in the job market.

This past spring and summer, six groups of students—ranging from first-year undergraduates to second-year MBA students—worked alongside six growing small businesses in the DC area through the Kogod in Practice initiative, to help these companies solve real business problems. Learn more about their experience in the initiative and how they produced results for their clients in our article here.
