What Our Students Say

  • I noticed that many of the senior leadership jobs within the company require an MBA—even if they don’t, I know it would help set me apart. I work 60 hours a week, so an MBA program with a classroom component wasn’t going to work for me. I looked into Johnson & Wales, and it’s phenomenal. Every class I’ve taken has been relevant.”

    Chrystal Byars, MBA ‘19
  • I visited the Providence Campus and considered relocating, but I realized that if I enrolled in the online program I could keep my full-time job working for the Miami Heat and pursue my MBA. Online learning takes dedication and determination, but an undergrad friend started the program at the same time as I did and we would text and keep each other on our toes."

    Julian Bovasso, MBA Hospitality Management ‘15
  • I've really enjoyed my experience in the JWU College of Online Education thus far. Working full-time with two jobs makes it tough to juggle obtaining my MBA, but I've been fortunate to find such a great program with Johnson & Wales. The professors are really great and completely accessible if you have a question or need help."
