The stress of balancing classes and learning with a life filled with existing personal and professional commitments can seem like a major road block between you and an advanced degree program.  But, while some obligations are inescapable, with the right focus, motivation, and priorities, you can make time for an online master’s degree program. Ulysesses Wilcox knows from experience.

“You can fit a graduate degree into your busy life by reducing or eliminating distractions,” says Ulysesses, a graduate of Walden’s online MS in Leadership program. For some people, that might be as simple as turning off the television or moving to an empty room. For Ulysesses, it meant deprioritizing his email. “Usually my email is the first thing that I go to, but that became the last thing,” he says.
