More about the experience
MIKE LAHETA 2012
Manager Corporate Sponsorships, NASCAR Hall of Fame
“Belmont Abbey truly exemplifies what it means to educate the whole person – mind, body and spirit – and I found opportunities and activities to support my learning, growth and development in all three areas. Having access to professors outside the classroom allowed me to explore areads of interest to me beyond the course curriculum. I think that is something that makes the Abbey unique.”
MOSES STANSBERRY 2013
“Marketing is an extremely competitive field but Belmont Abbey prepared me well. Career Services offered me an internship with the top media company in the world: Clear Channel Media. The week my internship ended, I was offered a paid position in the promotions department. Recently I was hired by Time Warner Cable Media to build marketing strategies for companies all over the US.”
