"The HIU International Development MBA gave me better tools for daily management challenges and problem-solving. I didn't have to wait until I finished the degree Ė I used some of my class projects to make positive changes in teams I worked with at my NGO and at my church. I learned so much not just from the highly experienced faculty but also from my fellow students, who came from all over the world and from many different professional backgrounds."

"Hope has showed me that education is so much more than just academia. Education is found in the relationships you form with instructors and students alike. What a great education to learn not only from focused and knowledgeable professors, but also from fellow students from around the world."

"The Management program at Hope offered me the flexibility to customize my MBA to include courses from the International Development and the Non-Profit emphases. I've been able to apply my course work to every part of my organization's development and grow overall as a servant-leader. The program also put me in contact with students around the globe, who create for me, a network of very strong Christian business leaders to align with."

"I returned to college for an MBA 30 years after my degree. Through my time at Hope, not only have I gained subject knowledge in my classes, but I have grown closer to the Lord as well. The Professors are world class and care about their students. All of the staff and faculty I have encountered have been helpful, knowledgeable and kind-hearted. The Lord through Hope has changed my life for the good and given it new meaning, and I am prepared to serve Him in any way He calls me."
