Pursing a master’s degree is never an easy thing, and neither is going back to school after you’ve been out in the workforce. Putting your career on hold to further your education can be more of a detriment than an advantage.

Enter the EMBA Program at The University of Alabama. This program is designed specifically for business professionals that are juggling families and ever-growing work schedules. So, pretty much all business professionals.
