MEET MITCH...

"Don't be worried that not being physically present in class will affect your learning experience.  The teachers bend-over-backward to make your experience great. My grades and learning experience did not suffer due to using the distance program.  The distance program was extremely helpful and convenient for me and my family. It allowed me to spend more time with my family during a very busy time in my life. The faculty at the Goddard School focused on teaching us to become strong professionals. They really want their students to represent themselves and the school well in their professional careers. I am more thoughtful and prepared as a  professional because of the Goddard School of business.
