Thank you for this video. I just started the evening MBA program at SCU and received an undergrad bus degree from SDSU. I have about 3.5 years of work experience and agree with what you have said in your video. I am finding I can discuss my work experiences in the classroom and am able to take more from the class discussions. Its only been a week but the difference between Grad and Undergrad is very apparent.
