Riordan MBA Fellows

"The Riordan MBA Fellows Program provided me the framework to attend a top MBA program. As a Fellow, I found myself surrounded with other individuals who had experienced similar obstacles within their communities. Through this we found camaraderie with one another and learned through each other's life challenges. I attribute much of my personal and professional success to being a Riordan MBA Fellow."
