The Central Experience

"The College of Business was instrumental in my success after graduation. During my time at Central, I had the opportunity to work with professors and students who consistently challenged me to work harder and dream bigger. I still carry that determination with me today and it has led me to the beginning of a very bright career with Amazon. I am forever grateful for the experience I had in the College of Business.” - Ashley Harris
