"My experience has opened doors to professional and personal development that would not have otherwise been available . . . It helped me become a leader," one student attests. Hofstra students are career-seasoned, with an average entering age of 36 and an average 11 years of work experience. They're optimistic about their futures past graduation, expecting about a 4 percent salary increase with their MBA, and 18 percent of graduates receive a promotion while still attending the program.
