Amy Kriebs Testimonial

Amy Kriebs

UIU Alum and Current MBA Student

Sometimes as adults we had a previous experience with school that didn’t go well and let our fears sink in. Going back to school has been life changing. I love the sense of community at UIU with other adult learners in my classes.
