"I chose RMU because of their willingness to work with me and the flexibility they provided to adult continuing education students like myself. The online degree programs and courses, the life credits that were given to me for experiences and an apprenticeship I completed years ago, along with their willingness to accept a lot more of my previous college credits than any other college or university that I researched, made my decision easy. The Organizational Leadership department staff is the best. They all contributed to the motivation I needed to successfully complete my degree at Robert Morris, which has already helped me to improve my future." -Jeff Malik '12, Bachelor of Science degree in Organizational Leadership and Business Management

"Pursuing an online MBA at RMU has been a positive experience.  I feel good about earning my online MBA at RMU because just like the traditional MBA, the online MBA meets AACSB accreditation standards. This AACSB accreditation makes my MBA superior to others.  I am excited about the variety of career options that will open up for me when I finish my online MBA.  I expect to move into a position that will allow me to fully utilize the skills and the knowledge that I learned while attending RMU." -Seth Dickerson, Master of Science in Business Administration, Medical Technologist at West Penn Hospital

"The RMU online master’s degree program has provided me the opportunity to continue my education with some amazing professors and students while keeping my busy professional and personal life. The online master's degree allows me to balance my life while learning dynamic information at a institution with a fine reputation." -Chaz Kellem, Master of Science in Organizational Leadership, Manager of Diversity Initiatives at Pittsburgh Pirates 

"I chose RMU for my online MBA degree for two reasons - credibility and flexibility. I completed my undergraduate degree at RMU and am very familiar with the quality of their learning programs and standards, including the  AACSB accreditation of both the traditional and online MBA. Also, I work full-time and have a family, so the flexibility is essential for me to be able to complete the online MBA program. While the work is challenging and time consuming, I am able to do it without sacrificing the time I spend with those that are closest to me. If I had to choose all over again, I would still do the online MBA program and it would definitely be at RMU." -Bob Kennelly, Master of Science in Business Administration, Regional Finance Manager at Black Box Corporation 

"I chose to get my online master's degree from RMU not only because it is an accredited school but because it is conveniently located to my house and is military friendly.  As a full time mom, the online master's degree program offers me the flexibility to choose whether I want to take classes fully online or hybrid. The staff is friendly and always willing to help." -Jodi Hample, Master of Science in Instructional Leadership, Homemaker/Mother 

"I would not have considered any other school to pursue my online master's degree and I am amazed by the level of support I have received from the RMU team.  People such as Deborah Hoey, Carol Kraus (Online Student Services) and Bernadette Jablonski (Financial Aid)  go beyond what is expected of them in this environment." -Lisa Wood, Master of Science in Organization Leadership, Statewide Director of Procurement Technical Assistance Centers, State of Ohio
