How did this program prepare you for your career?
I am a seasoned professional well into my career with over 30 years working experience. I didn’t realize how much “I didn’t know” or the real opportunities I had for improvements, this program enhanced what I know and brought clarity to items I could improve upon.

Yes, this program is geared for learning. The professors really care and are accessible. They are great resources and I encourage you develop professional relationships with the professors and classmates. We learn from each other and all are treated as equals.
