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.
Walden provides a strong foundation that ensures you can do anything if you set your mind to it.
