Flexibility and Excellence in One

I earned my Master of Business Administration degree in just over two years from Lake Erie College through Lakeland Community College’s Partnership Program. I was able to take advantage of the format that worked best for me each semester with access to both in-class or online options. My classroom courses were conveniently located minutes away at Holden University Center in Kirtland, Ohio. The facility is state-of-the-art with access to technology and resources that assisted me in my learning process. Evening and weekend courses allowed me to continue working full time while attending school. I also took advantage of some online classes which provided the flexibility to complete my classwork and study at a time convenient for me and my family.
