      MBA Helped Him Climb Up in Career

      “I’m currently a Financial Analyst at Ledger PGH. The MBA definitely contributed to me landing this job. When I finished the MBA, it led to a promotion into an entry-level accounting job. Fast forward two years: I made a lot of great connections in that position and was able to parlay that into the job at Ledger.”
