Be a Pioneer 

Greg Mosely: Opportunist

Felt stuck in your career? Greg Mosely did. But he changed his career and his life at MNU.

Last year the husband, father, and salesperson at a local car dealership realized that he was stuck with no way to move up. That’s when he asked himself a simple question.

“Am I happy? The answer was no, there’s no other place to go,” Greg says. “So now, how would I move forward?”

He checked out many schools, but his sister, who was earning her MBA, recommended MNU. Greg had been out of school for nine years and was unsure of his ability to be a student again. But his growing family and growing need for change gave him the motivation to take the plunge.

“One of the things that was most important to me when I made my decision was that [MNU] was a one-year program…it actually made it a really easy decision,” Greg says. “I was able to do it, and I was able to make it part of my schedule.”

"[MNU] taught me how to be a better student, and it taught me how to be a better person, which makes me better in my career."

Greg felt the conflict many adults do – the challenge of balancing work and family with education. While reluctant to take away time with his family to study, he knew the hard work of completing his degree would be worth it.

“I had the chance to give back to them,” says Greg. “It’s easy to make the sacrifice when you have the support and you know there’s something on the other side.”

Greg’s family is proud of his accomplishment, and his hard work paid off.

“If I was going to tell someone why it was such a great decision, I would say it’s because I learned things I didn’t know I needed to learn,” he says. “I wanted to do it just to get the degree, but after going through the program and finishing it, I’ve feel I benefited from much more than just the piece of paper.”

Greg continues to pursue excellence in his life and work. So how has his degree contributed to those goals?

“It taught me how to be a better student, and it taught me how to be a better person, which makes me better in my career,” said Mosely.
