-I love the concept of the cohort program! I am not sitting in class with 20-somethings who do not care about their grades or the class. I enjoy the group work with professionals who are my age and who do care about deadlines and the quality of the work turned it. It is a pleasure to go to class and have a real discussion about life, work, and the "what if's" of the business world. I have encouraged so many of my friends to apply to this program track. WSU really hit a home run with this program (in my opinion).
