Recent Etown Graduate and Athlete Pursuing MBA Through College’s Program
As college graduates across the country begin a new chapter of their lives, it is an extraordinary time to enter a competitive job market as the world responds to the COVID-19 pandemic. According to talent acquisition company, iCIMS, new college graduates are entering the worst job market in over a decade with increased competition and lower starting salaries.
Recognizing the challenging market, Elizabethtown College is offering one-year graduate programs with a variety of options to graduates, students, and professionals wanting to enhance their resumes.
2020 Elizabethtown College graduate Griffin Liebsch, who earned his bachelor’s degree in Finance, is taking advantage of another year at the College.
Griffin was one of the thousands of college athletes who missed the spring season of his Lacrosse program at Etown in result of the pandemic. Along with his intent to want to play another season (and the updated guidelines ruled by the NCAA), Griffin knew the timing was perfect to apply to Elizabethtown College’s School for Continuing and Professional Studies (SCPS) MBA program.
“I am a highly driven and competitive person that not only puts my best effort into anything put before me, but I am a leader who strives to return the best results out of everyone,” said Griffin.
The accomplished Lacrosse captain knew a degree to enhance his business knowledge and leadership skills would make him an appealing candidate in a highly competitive job field.
“In a time where the world seems uneasy, I believe this MBA program can benefit me in many ways,” Griffin said. “Continuing my education during a time where jobs may not be as easy to apply for, it will allow me to sharpen my knowledge and become more marketable when applying for jobs in the future,” Griffin said.
