MS in Human Resource Management Graduate
As a human resource professional, I am passionate about helping others reach their full potential through effective training and development. I decided to pursue a second master’s degree and felt the program at Walden was aligned with my professional goal: to enhance my leadership skills to secure a leadership role within the organization.
Looking back on my MBA program, it is impossible for me to not recognize the leaps and bounds of progress I have made both personally and professionally.
While I was deployed to Iraq, I conducted research and determined Walden University would be a great fit, allowing me to achieve the credibility I need to meet my goals for the future.
