“The knowledge I gained from the program helped me earn two promotions in my company. As I began to apply what I had learned from classes such as Operations Management, Financial Management, and Market Discovery & Analysis, my company grew impressed with me and promoted me to an assistant director position, followed by a director position. I am the first employee in a 30-year-old national company to ever get promoted after one month in an assistant director position.

What sets Cairn apart is its foundation on the Word of God, the faculty who are committed to teach through the lens of a biblical worldview, and my peers who were passionate about learning through that same lens. Cairn has equipped me, challenged me and prepared me for where I am today.”
