“I could not have asked for a better college to prepare me for the automotive industry. From vehicle diagnostics, to learning how to manage a business within the automotive industry, I feel that I came into the job fully prepared. I am currently in a management program for Enterprise Holdings, where I apply everything I have learned at MSC. I can't thank my professors/mentors enough for their help and influence on my college experience and am proud to say I still keep in touch with them!”
