INVEST IN YOURSELF There are, perhaps, a million reasons to earn an undergraduate degree, but completing an MBA program is an investment you make in yourself. That’s the viewpoint of Julie Marquis DiGiacomo and Chris DiGiacomo, a husband-and-wife team, that earned their UConn MBA degrees in May 2018 through the part-time program in Hartford. They completed their degrees in 2.5 years while working full-time, planning their wedding, and preparing for the birth of their first child.
