MPP Graduate
What attracted me to Walden was convenience. I knew that I would not be able to step away from my career to go to a traditional brick-and-mortar program. That was off the table as an option.
The most rewarding aspect of pursuing a degree at Walden was the opportunities that opened up after graduating.
Walden was a natural choice for me due to its method of instruction; it is conducive to professionals looking to earn an advanced degree.
