I love the connection that I have with my professors and classmates. I transferred into ABAC from two different universities and I never had experienced that type of connection before. Now I’m graduating soon and I can confidently say that ABAC has provided me with a quality education and relationships that will last a lifetime.

I graduated from ABAC in Fall 2016 and I am currently the Linehaul Program Manager at Amazon. ABAC helped me to find a job in Atlanta at Vertiv as a Transportation Representative through the Stafford Business Club Roundtable. I figured it would get my foot in the door for more opportunities in the area. A year later I landed a corporate job with Amazon in another transportation role. The Stafford School of Business helped me learn to think on my own through their many projects and presentations. I also learned how important networking is while attending ABAC.
