"Looking back, the times my career progressed the fastest was while I was pursuing a degree. I took a break after earning my BS, and my career plateaued. After being passed over for a couple promotions, I looked for a way to get things moving again, and enrolled in an MS program. It was a great experience that enhanced my knowledge, expanded my network, and opened doors. In the end, the toughest thing for me was choosing between the two great jobs I was offered. Neither would have been possible without the MS."

"DU's one-year MS program is a timely addition to the state's educational options that makes sense in the current, competitive market."
