Heidi Lelke is a US Air Force Veteran. She recently retired from the Air Force National Guard, where she served as a pilot and completed several deployments. Ms. Lelke is graduating with a Masters of Business Administration having completed the one-year, full-time accelerated MBA program offered at Paul College. Heidi chose UNH’s accelerated MBA program because it was local, but was particularly pleased with the small class sizes within the program. Ms. Lelke says that the biggest lesson she learned during her time at UNH was that “time management is essential”, but she also encourages incoming student Veterans to “remember to take advantage of all the different resources available, such as movies, athletic games, clubs, etc.” Upon graduation, Heidi plans on finding employment with a local New England Business in order to use the skills she gained through her MBA coursework.
