Supply Chain & Logistics Management

I knew I wanted to work for an apparel company, ideally Nike, and it’s worked out great for me. I definitely got everything I wanted out of it. In the OSU MBA program, I not only learned in my classes and from my professors and instructors – my classmates were from all over the world. The smaller class sizes were really appealing, and we got a lot of hands-on feedback and support. The professors are super eager to provide feedback and help students get more out of the program.
