Amy Charpentier is a Minnesota School of Business-Blaine 2010 graduate of the business management degree program. She is now a Globe University-Woodbury college representative and Woodbury, Minn., resident. Earlier this week, Amy climbed the stairs of the state Capitol during the Minnesota Career Colleges Association (MCCA) Hill Day to speak to legislators about why she choose attend and work for a career college.
What Amy talked about:
Charpentier sat down with State Representative JoAnn Ward (DFL – Woodbury) to tell her story about why she chose to attend Minnesota School of Business.
“Not only are the class sizes small, but the resources available to students are amazing,” said Charpentier. “They help you throughout your entire program and more importantly after graduation to help you find a job in your chosen career field.”
Representative Ward seemed thrilled to learn more about our school and even mentioned touring the Globe University-Woodbury campus in the near future to see first-hand what programs and resources our college offers our students.
Purpose of the day:
According to Tom Kosel, director of government relations at Globe University, the goal of MCCA Hill Day is to build relationships with legislators in order to communicate the value and role of career colleges in providing education to Minnesota students, and to maintain the support of state grants for our students.
“As a former student, a graduate, and now a college representative for Globe University, I understand the importance of access to state grants to help fund higher education,” said Charpentier. “It was great to get the opportunity to encourage a state representative to continue to support the distribution of state grant funds to students that choose proprietary schools. Overall, representing Minnesota School of Business/Globe University at MCCA Hill Day was a true honor and I’m excited to represent my college again next year.”
