UNH Master of Business Administration (MBA) students Dave Matta and Mark Adam were awarded the Patrick Carlson Prize for academic achievement and significant work experience. This award was established by the family and classmates of Patrick Carlson, a nontraditional student that loved to learn, as a way to honor his legacy.

Matta is the owner/operator of Luisa’s Italian Pizzeria, Inc. He said, “Going back to school after 30 years was a great challenge that has opened my eyes to a myriad of opportunities.”

Matta chose the UNH program located on the Manchester campus for its reputation for entrepreneurship and accreditation, as well as its convenient location.

Adam is a principle engineer at Wind River Systems. He said, “I attended graduate school for the purpose of earning the credential and developing the skills necessary to move into a management position.”

Both Matta and Adam expect to complete their degree requirements this month.
