Student Spotlight

"Went to Vail, CO to find myself."

Matt Corbett, MBA Student

Matthew Corbett graduated from the University of South Alabama in 2008 with a B.S. in Finance and is currently enrolled in the M.B.A. program here at the Mitchell College of Business while working as a graduate assistant.

When I graduated with my degree, I was one of tens of thousands of college students who were looking for a career in their field of study upon graduation. I didn't find exactly what I was looking for, so I went out to the mountains in Vail, CO and worked for the winter to find myself and figure out what I wanted to do. I decided coming back to South and getting my masters degree will give me a competitive advantage over others with just a bachelor's degree. That's one of the great benefits being at university does for you, it gives you time while your getting a degree to figure out what you want to do with your life. You get to meet such a variety of people that help mold who you are, your perception of the world, and what you think you want to do. I've decided that I want to serve my country as an officer in the U.S. military and the knowledge and skills I have learned here at the Mitchell College of Business will help me immensely in my journey - Matt.
