            Bellarmine--superb preparation for a rewarding life of accomplishmentsYAs I reflect on my career in uniform and my career in the corporate sector I am always drawn to the "lessons for life and living" that I learned at Bellarmine. I often say that my first 21 years in Louisville were a priceless period of learning for a career that was enormously rewarding and itself priceless. Over the nearly 50 years since I graduated I have had the rare opportunity to see a lot of the world, to have first hand experience in class rooms of other prestigious universities, and to interact with professionals from all walks of life. Bellarmine ranks with the best in preparing its students for a rewarding life of continuous learning and accomplishment. Thanks Bellarmine for what you gave me.

            Bellarmine University: In Veritatis AmoreYThe small classes and cohort model used in the MBA program provide ample opportunity to learn from the professors as well as your peers. The school is growing, but you won't get lost in the crowd like larger universities. The campus is beautiful with a lot of areas to meet with your cohort, study, or relax. There's nothing better than a sunny day on the Quad under the watchful eye of the Bellarmine Knight astride his horse, Veritas. I will continue to visit this campus long after my enrollment ends.
