Purdue's Weekend MBA students come to us with varied backgrounds and strengths, goals and plans. They also share something great: a desire to tell the world about their MBA program experiences.
"I enjoyed every class. The professors are great at facilitating and encouraging in-class discussions of real-time problems and provide context and toolkits to solve them efficiently."
"The general management curriculum is very good. It gives you an essence of all aspects of business. I feel strongly that it is preparing me well for my pursuit of the C-suite.”
Ananda Pandy, Class of ’22

"I am seeing first-hand the concepts that we're learning about in class within my own work environment. I know I will have the foundation to branch into a managerial role within my organization."
"Going for an MBA opens so many doors for me professionally. I will always have the choice to go back into teaching, but the MBA gives me options!”
"The Daniels School cares that you succeed, and provides you with the tools to excel in your degree."
Emily Stillman, Class of ’22

"I was drawn to the Weekend MBA because of the hybrid structure. Being in residence every other Saturday allowed students to build lasting relationships, but didn’t take undue time from our families. I’d recommend the program to anyone!"
"Life long relationships. The cohort experience allowed us to learn from each other’s experiences and grow together. I completed the program with colleagues and friends for life.”

"Purdue's Weekend MBA program is both cost and time effective. It is appropriately priced compared to other schools. It also allows me the time to balance work, school, and my social life by attending class every other Saturday and having online resources. It also provides me with access to incredible professors and professional resources."
Purdue is an amazing school and if you truly want an education and not just a title, the Daniels School of Business will provide you with exactly that. This has been an amazing experience, and I am confident any other student pursing a degree here will feel the same.”
Dakota Hassan, Class of ’22

"I wanted to use the MBA experience to assist in making a career transition. I hope to gain valuable management lessons across the breadth of business functions and build a lifetime network in a renowned school."
"The Daniels School network really matters. I am surprised at how friendly people are, from faculty to staff to students. I can be talking to a genius student or a globally recognized faculty member and they are down-to-earth people.”
Brandon Gatson, Class of ’22
Supplier Diversity Manager, Purdue University
"The Weekend MBA program gave me the flexibility to work full time while getting face-to-face instruction and what I consider a more in-depth appreciation of the course work. My goal is to help companies gain and sustain competitive advantages that propel them ahead of their competition. I want the opportunity to run a large company or division in the future, and this program has given me the skills to approach this challenge with confidence."
"My goal is to be a C-suite executive, and the curriculum at the Daniels School has given me insight into all the roles within that team. It is important for executives to have an understanding of the entire business, and I feel very comfortable speaking in any of their languages after participating in the MBA program.”
