My coursework has recently helped me get a new job as chief information officer at a school district in Indiana.
I decided to re-enroll with Walden for my master’s degree because after earning my first degree I saw a lot of positive changes in myself.
I was surprised by how well organized the program is. The lectures and discussions are all timed out. If you’re hardworking and follow the program, you can graduate at the expected time.
