Student Spotlight: Mohammed Souass

Mohammed Souass
Mohammed Souass

My name is Mohammed Souass. I am from Essaouira, Morocco: An ancient Portuguese enclave dubbed Essaouira as the “wind city” and also known as the “Moroccan Woodstock.” I am mulling over if the city’s enchanted winds are responsible for bringing me this far, to endearing places. Here I am at Salisbury University, a place I value and cherish. I must admit, I never imagined that one day I would go back to college. It has been a long strenuous adventure, but the price has been invaluable.

Before I attended college, I performed as an aircraft mechanic for many years, first at Royal Air Morocco Airline, then at many MROs facilities (FAA-certified repair stations) in the United States. The work was fun and rewarding, but I felt something was missing. I needed to take an extra step to realize my full potential and self-esteem. Nothing can do that as well as pursuing knowledge and giving back to society.

I got a job assignment in the Delaware area and decided to steer the helm of my career and go back to college. To begin with, I attended the University of Maryland Eastern Shore for an undergraduate degree in aviation science and a minor in business administration. After that, I enhanced my education with SU’s M.B.A. Program in the Perdue School of Business.

I used “StumbleUpon” to gain information about which program I should I get in, and it was after long and thoughtful research that I finally chose the SU program over others. I came to realize that the SU program is a very respectable one. I learned that one of the leading universities in Grenoble, France, teamed up with the Perdue School for admitting students from France.

Now, I am in my second semester in the program and graduation is looming. I am sure this program has given me the knowledge and the aptitude to be a leader in various business environments. SU’s M.B.A. coursework, the honorable faculty and the multi-diverse student body have created an enjoyable learning environment for me to thrive. For the said reasons, I am taking this opportunity to thank all the people who have made my experience at SU enjoyable and possible. I thank the ones I know and the ones I do not know. Many work in the shadows and their work is as critical and meaningful for making all this possible. Thank you.
