“I’ve been fairly successful, even without a degree, but I felt like something was missing. The program was everything I was hoping for. I had so much more confidence. I didn’t have to sit in the background. I could ask the right questions. I gained so much knowledge from the business courses that I took. I’ve been immediately able to apply those to my work. I’ve received a promotion since then as well, and the confidence that I’ve gained in meetings with other departments has taken me so much further in my career in such a short amount of time.”
