“ANC prepared us to head out into the working world with confidence. I had gained more real-world experience than most people my age through my internship at Hirdaramani and connections with professionals before I secured full-time employment in the same organization soon after my graduation. I was also offered an alumni scholarship to the MBA program offered by UWL at ANC: ANC assists students with setting and achieving goals that prepare them for rewarding careers and continued education.”
