NC eLearning Success Stories

Captain Chad L. Shenk

Captain Chad L. Shenk


Location: Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in Goldsboro, NC
Degree / Program: Masters of Business Administration

Captain Chad L. Shenk has finished training on the F16 Fighting Falcon and is ready to assume his position as the “Right Wing” of the Air Force’s premier aerobatic team. Prior to training with the F16, the Minneapolis, MN native has had many hours in the F15E as a pilot and an instructor. While flying the F15E at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base in Goldsboro, NC he started his MBA program at Fayetteville State University.
His MBA skills are very different from those used to fly the most sophisticated combat aircraft in our arsenal. In addition to his flying duties, Capt. Shenk put his MBA skills to work as the Operations Manager for the Wings over Wayne 2009 Air Show. While many students are limited to the case studies found in textbooks’ appendices, Capt. Shenk had his sleeves rolled up and immersed in “planning, organizing, directing, and controlling” one of the premier air shows on the east coast of the United States. Capt. Shenk said, “Thanks to the online classes in Fayetteville State’s MBA program, I was able to tackle what would have otherwise been an insurmountable task. The case study approach employed in many class problems and examples helped me draw analogies to my situation and thereby shorten my time to a solution.”
