"I've gained some fantastic opportunities through ESC. I give because ESC is a unique institution. Their flexible learning arrangements, the opportunity to gain credit for prior learning experience and the ability to customize my degree made it easy for me to achieve my degrees later on in life. Now I'm pursuing my MBA! I feel like I am winning, so I'm paying it forward so others can win too!"
