B.S. in Business Administration
"I checked out all the programs that were local and found that Potsdam had the best option for me. As a military wife, mother of 4, and active as a volunteer, I needed something flexible and Potsdam offered that. Overall, I had an excellent experience with my professors and feel confident that I have learned what it takes to be successful"
