WCU School of Business
Student spotlight -- Payton Roney is completing the requirements for a Master of Business Administration this week. Payton is from Laurel and began her career at Sanderson Farms in 2018. She was recently promoted to Corporate Recruiter in September. Payton says, "I attribute my promotion to my academic experience and professional development through the MBA program at WCU. I chose this program because my brother attended nursing school at WCU, and he loved and still values his experience with his teachers and how they prepared him and his classmates for the professional world. I knew I wanted the same quality of education in pursuing my MBA, so it was an easy choice to make and I have no regrets in choosing WCU’s program. I have benefited from this program through the challenging learning experiences that allows each student to apply what we learn in the classroom to our professional lives and vise versa. Moreover, my interactions with professors and fellow students provided a more unique and personal learning experience that I know I would not have been able to have anywhere else. I am thankful for my time in the program and will cherish it forever!"
