Accelerate your Path at Jacksonville University- The College Tour

At JU, students can choose a path that fits their ambitious goals. The university offers several accelerated programs where students can earn an advanced degree faster than ever. Let's head over to Jacksonville University's Davis College of Business and Technology to meet Andrew. He has already earned a bachelor's in aviation management and flight operations, and now he's working on his MBA. The floor is all yours, Andrew. 

Thanks, Alex. What's going on future dolphins? Are you looking for a personalized collegiate experience in an area thriving with opportunities? That's exactly why I was drawn to Jacksonville
University. I didn't want to be crammed into a room with a sea of students. I wanted direct access to my professors, and I wanted flexibility that fit my life. At JU, I enjoy keeping myself busy whether in sports, music, or academics. But I needed a course schedule to fit around my many interests. With over 35 programs in graduate and professional studies, I can take advantage of the full-time and part-time course options. This allows me to do all the things I love while staying on top of my coursework and graduating at my own pace. As a pilot and student-athlete, I'm always traveling. Hybrid courses have allowed me to attend classes on the go and even re-watch lectures. If you're looking for a fast track, Jacksonville University offers accelerated customizable paths to
a graduate degree with our Grad-to-Grad program. You can earn your bachelor's and master's degrees in as little as four years, saving time and money. As a JU grad student, you'll also become a creator of knowledge and a community problem solver through hands-on research opportunities. The work of our grad students is informing public education and policies, working to address food deserts, and helping communities withstand the effects of climate change. You can become a world changer before you even graduate. As a JU dolphin, I am honored to be connected with a tight-knit community of scholars, researchers, and professionals. Every program here has helped me reach my full potential. JU has made me a better businessman, aviator, athlete, and leader; and we hope to see you here soon. Back to you, Alex.

Wonderful job Andrew. You certainly are a very busy guy. I love that JU helps you juggle it all. Andrew, best of luck my man.

"The Grad2Grad program at Jacksonville University has allowed me to advance my knowledge during my senior year of undergrad. The ability to take four graduate classes before graduating helped me gain knowledge about the corporate world and what goes into running a business. I took what I learned and was able to apply it directly to a business internship. The skills I gained in this program gave me a step up in a competitive workforce."
