During the fall semester, Tyler Patoka took classes for UW-Stevens Point’s master’s degree in business administration (MBA) while finishing his undergraduate degree in finance and management. He is one of 11 students in the
4+1 MBA program (four years undergraduate, one year graduate). He was also one of five taking both graduate and undergraduate courses at the same time.
“When the new MBA program was announced, Assistant Professor Lyna Matesi persuaded me to get out of my comfort zone and sign up,” he said. “I felt this program was a good fit for me because it would be both challenging and rewarding. I knew I would regret it later if I didn’t take advantage of the opportunity presented to me.”
