"As an experienced educator who shares a background in banking, real estate, and law, I am convinced that both my knowledge and experience are valuable in a business learning environment. Any time an individual chooses to advance his/her education, the benefits of doing so are immeasurable. His interest in continuing to learn serves to secure his future while, simultaneously, improving that of his family, the community in which he lives, as well as all of society. Becoming a lifelong learner is the key to staying ahead of the learning curve while also strengthening one's ability to contribute as a leader in a rapidly changing world. It is my firm belief that any student who makes a serious commitment to his education is making a lifetime investment working toward a goal which will always hold him in good stead."
