“I am in ACE because it provides a streamlined way to achieve a goal that contributes both to my current business life as Branch Manager of a major brokerage firm and as a bridge to enable me to take the next steps into my future business life.” – Nathan, AS General Studies-Business
Nathan finished his Associate degree in July 2017, his Bachelor’s in 2020, his Master’s in Law in 2021, and his JD (Juris Doctorate) in 2022. He simultaneously worked on his law degrees and his bachelor’s (did you know that you don’t have to have a bachelor’s degree to go to law school?).
“Why did I choose ACE? I have been looking into accelerated programs that will allow me to get my AS in Business in the shortest amount of time possible. I already had 3 part time semesters in my transcripts. I received the flyer for this class in the mail and while I was already determined to complete my degree I decided to give this program a chance.” – Makayla, AS-T Business.
Makayla will transfer to a university after completing her Associate degree through ACE and finish her Bachelor’s in Business.
