Kristen Aguilar, MBA, 2018 General Management

“I definitely want to work for corporate America. I want to see what God has for me. I believe I have all of the experience and also have the theory and the biblical principles ― that I've learned from Regent ― to really apply what I've learned in the right way.”

Leo Motta, MBA, 2015

“It was such a stretching experience to interact with people from the corporate world, small business and the military. My perspective on leadership practice is much richer and diverse.”
