“The Executive MBA track was a great fit for me. With a young family and demanding career, the schedule and tempo in which I could earn an advanced degree was perfect. Now, in my new position as president and general counsel of the Louisiana Mid-Continent Oil and Gas Association, I use what I learned in the Flores MBA program, which more than prepared me for this position. I’m very thankful for my experience in the Flores MBA program and would recommend it to anyone looking to advance their education or career.”
