Name: Gavan Archibald
Country: Jamaica
Began his MBA at Chadron State in the Fall of 2015.

"The MBA program at CSC was a good fit for me because of the low cost and personal attention I receive from my professors. I was also able to pursue a Graduate Assistantship working in Housing and Residence Life. While working on my MBA, I am also gaining great work experience through my Assistantship and a sense of worth as I have more involvement on-campus with Housing and Residence Life activities and events. As a GA, I also have the benefit of the cost of my tuition being covered, and I receive a small monthly stipend for my work."

Working with the faculty and students in-class and at work is expanding my professional network and I am learning valuable tools, like learning about different interactive technologies, that will help me succeed in my career."
