Success Stories

Nathan Wright has always wanted to go beyond the status quo and create, to pursue ideas and make things that nobody else has made before. Now, putting the best of his recently completed University of Kentucky Gatton College of Business and Economics MBA together with the undergraduate degree he earned from the UK College of Engineering, Wright is doing just that.

The Gatton College of Business and Economics at the University of Kentucky is making it easier for regional businesspeople to pursue an MBA with a new, more convenient online preparatory ("prerequisite") option. Prospective students interested in both the One Year  MBA and Professional MBA programs can now fulfill their prerequisites through IVY Software, an interactive online educational software that helps prospective business candidates obtain the required foundational knowledge to prepare for an UK MBA program.

With its first class graduating just three months ago (December 2015), the joint University of Kentucky-University of Louisville Executive MBA program is already being ranked in the top tier. Recently, the UK-UofL EMBA became the only program in the region ranked in CEO Magazine's Tier One Global EMBA programs for 2016.

Through a partnership formed between Commerce Lexington Inc. and the University of Kentucky’s Gatton College of Business and Economics, a scholarship in the amount of $15,000 will be available to a Commerce Lexington member to help eliminate a portion of the cost of the UK/UofL Executive MBA program, beginning in August 2016.

The University of Kentucky's Gatton College of Business & Economics is hosting its 2015 Fall MBA Fall Open House event on Tuesday, October 20th at 5:30pm in the Woodward Evens Hall – Room 307.
