Walden offers the flexibility I needed to earn a degree in a rapidly changing field like project management. The research facilities, library, Writing Center, and the faculty are all excellent.
Studying at Walden allowed me to collaborate with students around the world. This let me see what life is like in other countries, and see issues in accounting through their cultural perspectives.
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.
