My name is Faith Petrov. I am a proud graduate of the MBA in Healthcare program, New Charter University. I would have never been able to accomplish this without the tremendous support I received from the NCU leadership, administrative staff, student advisor, and my professors. Just like so many of us who are studying online while trying to fulfill other life responsibilities, I was hesitant to enroll in the MBA program; I was anxious about whether I can handle both school work and other life responsibilities. My message to students is: Never get discouraged. Whether students or not, life will always impose multiple demands on us. It is better that we make strategies to manage such demands and take care of our study, health, and be thankful to the support and guidance we receive from those who made our success a reality.
Education your way.
The MBA program at NCU is designed for success in practical, day to day, on the job, tasks. The content and project questions deal with real work situations that employees and managers face in their daily operations. Such formula helps students focus mostly on practical issues, strengthening their on the job thinking and problem solving skills. My advice to students: If in doubt or feel overwhelmed, contact your student advisor and professors to seek answers. Please trust that they will help you. We cannot get answers unless we ask. To New Charter University leadership, staff, professors, and students I wish you all the best with your future endeavors.
God be with your every step of life endeavors. Amen.

Looking back, I’m thrilled to have completed my studies at New Charter University. It was challenging, rewarding and will carry me forward as I continue to learn and build my leadership skills.

”One of the skills that learners need to make good use of is communication.
Throughout studies, I have faced tones of challenges e.g. losing a laptop. The coaches from NCU were very understanding in helping me to reconnect and submit my projects and occasionally extend the deadlines.
For the online studies, it is required of any learner to have a high level of discipline as there is no one to push you to work. You also have to challenge yourself i.e. have a goal and yearn to meet it. I mean, you are responsible for your own happiness, sadness or whatever state you are in...you own your future! Go out there and find what you love and have a passion for. Then give it your best shot.Samuel Ochieng' NgesaMBA - Finance 2018
”The major challenge is presented by the best benefit of the educational platform of the university; CONVENIENCE.
Convenience is the most important benefit provided by the university followed by the tailor made relevant courses. The fact that we have control over our learning gives us the benefit of learning and advancing our carriers even when we are working and seem to have less time for learning. However, without a proper individual plan and timetable for learning, we may reach the end of the time allocated for the course without actually completing. This has been a major challenge which has been a fault of my own due to undue procrastination. Learning needs discipline and effective planning without which we fail to reach our goal.
However, I was finally able to arrest the problems and complete my course “better late than never”.Adan HusseinMBA - Finance 2018
If it were not for the support of the university team, I would not have finished my course. Kudos to the team at NCU and the great learning platform. Keep up the good work.
