“MMA offers so much to students—it stands apart from all other higher education institutions in the state.”

“I was the first in my family to go to college. When I graduated, there weren’t a lot of seagoing jobs. But Exxon Shipping offered me a third mate’s post—a job that was pivotal in my career.

“I wouldn’t have gotten that job if I wasn’t a Maine Maritime grad. MMA has an exceptional reputation in the maritime world because of our graduates’ work ethic: we show up with a more disciplined, focused approach to the job. That difference sets us apart. The state, and the world, need more people with that kind of training.”
