MS in Accounting Graduate
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.
The most rewarding aspect of pursuing my degree with Walden is effecting positive social change.
I liked the convenience of distance learning. As a wife, mom, and career woman, I was unable to sit in a classroom several times per week.
