Success Stories

I learned about allocating resources, how best to allocate them. I really liked the leadership principles class. I think I work better with people, matching people with the right projects. I feel a lot better about all that than when I started."

You always hear engineers don’t have social skills, people skills and such. We spend four years doing math. In undergrad, we dread group projects, but at work, essentially group projects are what you’re doing all day every day. We work with interdisciplinary, multifunctional groups, and you have to manage and work your way into a solution you like."

So, I was concerned about an online program. But it was not as hard as I thought it would be not having that same kind of personal interaction. The content they provided, I could tell it was well thought-out and designed in such a way to be useful. I've been an advocate for the program ever since I started it."
