Assistant COB Dean Dale Feinauer said the scholarships provided by the MBA Executive program can help reduce costs for students who may face greater financial constraints.

“The scholarships defray some of the costs for students. They also are our way to recognize that some students face more logistical challenges when participating in the EMBA program,” Feinauer said.

Michelle Flanagan, MBA Executive program graduate student of Caledonia, Minnesota, received the veteran’s scholarship for her service in the military. The scholarship helped make the decision to continue her education easier.

“I am extremely thankful for the veteran’s scholarship and was happy to see so many other scholarship opportunities. The funds provided helped with some of the financial burden of continuing my education,” Flanagan said.

Adam Ellison ‘19, an MBA Executive program alum, is a past recipient of the government and not-for-profit scholarship. The Omro native considers himself fortunate to have received a scholarship for the program and encourages other students to consider applying .

“My scholarship helped me with the cost of my tuition,” Ellison said. “My advice to other students is why not apply? It doesn’t hurt to try, and scholarship programs are a great way to help with the financial burden of rising tuition costs.”
