What CBT Alumni Say

My business administration minor prepared me for my current position.
- Jimmy Peterson, 2013, Director of Business Development & Marketing, The Brannon Corporation

My accounting degree from UT Tyler has given me a great foundation to build on.
- Maria Campos, 2013, Staff Associate at Henry & Peters

The internship that CBT provided me, showed my employer how valuable a resource I could be in a full-time position.
- Roy Lucio, 2012, Sales & Marketing Analyst, Ingersoll Rand

The day-to-day class work is long forgotten but the concepts of time management, lessons learned from professors, and the ability to work within teams have been embedded in my mind. Each moment spent presenting something in front of the class or even answering a professor's questions out loud was future training for being able to properly express my opinion on the job today.
