The flexibility of in-person or online classes allowed me to balance raising my family, my career, and my course work. It was easy to stay organized and move through the requirements, and each class could be immediately applied in my work.
Michele Equale '13
With this program, I feel the ROI is extremely good. Every class I've taken, I end up using in the workplace. There's not a single class that I don't recognize a piece of the topic and apply it immediately to what I'm doing.
Creighton Yost '16
The reason I chose the online program is that I knew it would give me the flexibility of when, how, and where I do my coursework...without compromising on the caliber of professors that I would have access to.
Antony Thinagar '16
My advisor was fantastic and was one of the main reasons why I felt really good about choosing Isenberg. She helped me pretty much every semester that I was enrolled. I definitely felt supported with her.
