Washington D.C. is a hub for some of the most powerful decision-makers in the country—so it makes sense that it also has the second largest Syracuse University alumni base in the world, with nearly 15,000 alumni and counting. Students and graduates of Syracuse’s on-campus and online programs put their skills to work for businesses, nonprofits, and NGOs as well as for the many government offices in the DMV area.

As a result, he enrolled in MBA@Syracuse and broadened his business skills without having to relocate. Today, Matt works for Innovative Defense Technologies in Arlington, Virginia, a company that serves the Department of Defense in the D.C. metro area.
