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.
The mentorship at Walden has been the greatest value. It’s consistent, ongoing, empowering, and encouraging. It’s a network that has provided a wealth of resources.
With an MBA, I now have the knowledge and skills to manage an entire organization, including finance management, acquisition, human capital, technology management, and marketing.
