“I attended graduate school to enhance my understanding of what I learned during my undergraduate studies. It’s not enough to simply have information and recite key concepts. I turned to graduate school to help me learn how to apply the information and concepts in order to become a better leader.
“I chose UW Oshkosh for two simple reasons: quality and affordability. UWO is an incredible institution that provides arguably the same or higher-caliber curriculum as much higher-priced schools.
“A graduate degree is a measurable sign of your commitment to growth and leadership. On a personal level, the graduate degree boosted my confidence in believing I can accomplish anything I put my heart and mind to. On a professional level, it propelled my career on a fast track to more responsibility, resulting in a greater leadership capacity.”
