“The MCAA program at Concordia University Irvine has shown me benefits in many ways. The ideas and skills I learned through the completion of the MCAA program have rolled over into my coaching duties and aided in the continued development of our football and track programs. I was also able to assume the role of Activities Director and increase my teaching salary due to the completion of a graduate degree.”
