People are saying

I entered the USC School Business Management Certification Program to gain more fiscal knowledge to apply within my position of Director of Student Services. I exited the program the following year and began a position as a CBO and used the knowledge, connections, and strategies that I learned through USC. I was well prepared to “hit the ground running” in my new position. Thank you USC!
