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.
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.
