Shane’s Story

photo of Shane Albert“I graduated from the Maine Business School in 2014 with my BS in Management, and quickly found a job as an accountant for a local medical supplier. After gaining valuable real-world experience, I decided to continue my education through the University of Maine’s online MBA program. Due to the flexibility of this revolutionary program, I have been able to progress in my career, recently accepting an accounting position with a renewable energy company located in Portland, Maine. My hours are constantly shifting, so being able to connect with professors remotely with applications such as Adobe Connect is crucial for young professionals such as myself. I appreciate the entrepreneurial approach of the professors, as they are teaching these hybrid classes in real-time with both online and in-class students. Being able to continue my education without offsetting my professional career has been monumental, and I’m excited to continue working my way through this program.”
